I believe hand guns should be banned.
They are good only for killing people.
you probably don't want to hear this, but hand guns are often used in hunting, especially dangerous animals that charge, like boars.
They are easily hidden, so they are /or can be carried without anyone realising it.
so can a knife, what is your point?
You have the right to own a gun, why does it have to be a handgun.
because they are practical and compact.
Buy a rifle or a shot gun, great for hunting and for shooting practice & your ready to stop the invading armies you all seem to fear there so much.
the only invading army I'm worried about is a criminal endangering my family and I'll be god damned if i let some criminal hurt someone I love, all because a bunch of crybaby gunsnatchers took away my 1 means of defending my family.
I will never be able to understand the mentality of Americans, you have a major terrorist attack that kills over 3000 people at the World Trade & Convention Centre.
British senses are tingling.... this has nothing to do with gun control! the terrorists used jets, not handguns to bring down the twin towers, they also used small blades to take over the jets.
The Nation mourns & rightly so.
if you say so.
You change your judicial system, on how terrorists are treated, you create a new enforcement branch called the Homeland Security & you give them broad & sweeping legal power.
All that for the death of 3000 plus American's.
Yep, thats the way it works.
Last year over 11,000 Americans were murdered by handguns.
As many or more the year befor that, & the year befor that etc.
people die, simple as that. 11,000 isn't that many considered how many people die in car accidents, around 41,000 http://www.unitedjustice.com/death-statistics .html and I don't hear you bitching about dropping speed limits, or hammering down on drunk driving.
11,000 dead and you do nothing, but try and mask that the problem is handguns.
That is what is wrong ladies & gents.
your grammer is terrible... and your logic is flawed. a person with a well sighted scoped rifle can kill many more people than 1 nut with a handgun out in the open. Perhaps not at 1 time...
P.S. I own 2 rifles & a shot gun my grandfather taught me to hunt & shoot, I believe that owning a gun is a priviledge not a right.
Going to the toilet in elementary school is a privelege. Self defense is a right.
I am saddened by the terrible crime committed in Virginia, it just all seems so senseless to me.
yeah we all feel that way. personally, I believe that issuing hand guns to the students at universities would cut down on the violence at school. this may sound insane but think about it. if the 32 students had guns, 1 of them would have put a bullet in ole Cho and it would have been over much faster.
