On American citizen and I have the right to bear arms because the Constitution says so and a hand gun is this an equalizer if someone's lot bigger than you and they want to beat you to death . Are you going to let them do it I think not. And I am not about to just let the police have guns because a lot of police officers are corrupt and they think like criminals and it's way too late because China designed gunpowder thousand years ago. Maybe we should just wear about nuclear bombs which are damn governments design to wipe out thousands of people in one explosion in my hand gun does not have that much power I am just looking for one on one survival if someone wants to cause trouble to me and my family. Maybe if we brought back the death penalty for someone that killed somebody with blood all with her hands and the evidence showing that I'll bet you crying would stop I know my hand I made crimes.if someone breaks in my home and threatens my livelihood I will introduce them to St. Peter because I work too damn hard for what I have and I don't have someone take it away from me. And besides that there are all kinds of ways of killing people like snapping their necks to bear hands so what are we going to do chop off everyone's hands I think not. Guns don't kill people attitude to people.

I do not know who came up with this idiotic poll but someone needs to read our Constitution it states in their we have the right to bear arms the Supreme Court had to remind Chicago about that for tonight their citizens to ban guns for a while and the Supreme Court said they could not do that to the citizens of Chicago anymore. The reason why the Constitution was designed so our government leaders walk all over us do what they ever want to do and not to walk all over the citizens that put them in power. Sometimes congressmen forget who they work for.

The only effect a ban on handguns would ever do is to disarm law-abiding citizens. Criminals do not pay attention to laws anyway and would not care if handguns were banned. If anything, they would likely prefer it, since it would increase their likelihood of success in robberies, rape and murder by ensuring their victims are unarmed and therefore unable to effectively fight back.

2nd amendment...i would like to atleast try to defend my family, friends, and my fellow law abiding citizens if someone was going to kill or hurt one of them, instead of just watching.

You may have my guns when you pry them from my cold dead hands! When your government is afraid of its people it is no longer a government of the people, by the people and for the people!
