A ban won't get rid of guns. Only criminals would be armed.

I agree that a ban wouldn't keep criminals from having guns. In addition, a ban on hand guns would just make citizens that currently own them criminals. I wouldn't give up mine if they banned them. In fact I doubt any gun owners would give them up.

All a ban on handguns would do is take away an ability of the citizen to defend themselves against the criminals who would have all the guns.

Let's start with the Second Amendment to the US Constitution and go from there.

A government that refuses to take responsibility for protecting individual citizens (as every level of American government does refuse) thereby abdicates any legitimate authority to deprive its citizens of the means to defend themselves.

Anyone who supports gun control, should be considered a socoalist nazi, a communist and an enemy of the state. Hitler supported gun control. Once the guns were gone, the people were murdered by the millions in cold blood.

Guns are not the problem. Criminals are. Guns are no more dangerous than knives, baseball bats, or cars. It is the person that is operating the device and their intentions that are dangerous.

Banning handguns for citizens means only criminals have them. This isn't f*cking rocket science, guys.

The Second Amendment is crystal clear, there shall be no abridgement of an individual's right to bear arms. If you want to change that, then you must amend the Constitution. And for all of you who want to parse the "organized militia" wording, you miss the point. The founders CLEARLY understood how important is was to have an armed citizenry.
