For what it's worth, I don't see ANY need for handguns.
The purpose they serve is not justified.
I'm not against guns. I grew up in a hunting environment...hell, who in MN didn't!
But I don't know what the answer should be.
If I were to take a stab at it I'd say that assault rifles and handguns have no place in society. Their conception was out of need to kill humans.
So...is it anti-American to think handguns and assault rifles should be banned with SEVERE punishment for those even found in possession of one?
As far as I can tell, it still is in keeping with our constitutional right to bear arms.
If I'm wrong, toss me an argument in defense of handguns. I'm all for hearing all thoughts.
