The Founding Fathers...far greater in wisdom than anything you see in office in this country now, gave us a Second Amendment for, among many good reasons, specifically so we working people could rebel against and protect ourselves against the kind of TAPE WORMS both in public office and in corporate boardrooms who are sucking the blood out of our country and subverting our Constitution....do you know why it is called the SECOND AMENDMENT?...it is because once you are stupid enough to let them take it away...ALL of your personal rights will be gone ....in a damned SECOND

Everyone has a right to self defense. The handgun is the great equalizer for the smaller, weaker potential victim. A ban on handguns would only benefit the criminals that would ignore any such ban.

Gun bans don't work if you use hindsight to evaluate the results.

Gun bans always are followed by increases in violent crime, and when communities losen laws, like put a push on issuing more conceiled weapon permints, violent crime always goes down.

Since I know what happens when those laws are passed and don't want that to happen here, I oppose bans on handguns.

Guns kill. Simple as that. They don't solve anything or protect anything. Anyone can get their hands on one.

Go get a gun becuase the only person who'll protect you in a blink of an eye is you.

There are thousands of handguns produced every day. To think that a ban on handguns would solve violence in our society is naive and foolish. There should be very strict rules and punishment for those who would misuse handguns period. If there is actual punishment for example long prison terms for those who victimize people with guns then the rate would go down.

So... you probably don't think police should carry them, after all they "don't solve anything".

Firearms are a fundamental right given to us by our founders.

Because Americans have a constitutional right to defend them selves. Criminals can always get guns legal or not. That leaves the rest of us vulnerable. And I don't wanna hear any yapp about homeland security aka Gestapo! Gimme my gun and shut up.

If all LAWABIDING citizens were allowed to carry concealed handguns in order to protect themselves, the violent crime rate would plummet

Gun control is being able to hit your target every shot. For example: hitting the guy attempting to rob you right between the eyes.

Gun bans don't work, they never lower crime rates.

We have plenty of data from real life to pretend it works when we can see so clearly that it doesn't.

It's a feel good thing to do, and frequently done by good people who want to make a positive change and are unaware of what has happened when it's been done in other places.

Handgun control will never work, because criminals don't obey the law! THAT'S WHY THEY"RE CRIMINALS!!!!

It is better to have a handgun and NEVER need it, than to NEED one and not have it.
I have used one several times for self defense and have never fired it!!ANYONE who wants a ban is a imbecile!
