I'll give mine up when the criminals and crazies, tyrants and terrorists hand in theirs. You know, the likes of Hugo Chavez, Michael Bloomberg, Osama Bin Ladin's followers, and the narco-trafficers. In many parts of the world, armed men in uniform equals death. Who will protect you from them once you hand yours in? The Blue Helmets?

1.) A handgun ban would be unconstitutional.

2.) Right to Keep and Bear arms shall not be infringed :)

Enforce the current laws. felons with guns are illegal, murder, robbery stc.. illegal.

Stop repeat offenders, that's what's needed. Not attacking the right of innocent people to defend themselves.

If it worked like the pointy headed folks think it would, fine. But unencumbered by the thought process as they often are, they come up with bone headed ideas that never work and create unintended aggravation for the majority. Simple answer, it will not work. Will be a boon for the crooks etc, less resistance while they are running amuck raping and pillaging.

First, gun controls do not work. Criminals will still have access to handguns by buying these weapons from the black market. This is what goes on in Britain, Australia, Mexico, and in many other country that have already banned guns. Law-abiding citizens who don't possess handguns for fear of being jailed for breaking the law would be left defenseless against armed criminals. Crime rates will skyrocket (this occurred in Britain, Australia, and Jamaica after gun bans were put in place). Criminals are enabled to commit crimes when they know their prey is unarmed.
Second, the Second Amendment is put there not only to defend ourselves from street thugs, but also tyranny. The Founding Fathers saw that guns helped them win the American Revolution. Hitler, Mao, and Stalin all banned guns and this lead to mass round-ups and executions of millions since those people had nothing to defend themselves against these tyrants.
