    Yes, but the op mentioned that handguns kill more people; if that is the case, then we need more controls on handguns (in my opinion)

    I'm sure many people on this forum will vehemently disagree.

    Small problem.... Statistics also show that the most commonly use self-defense firearms are handguns as well.

    But you do not care about the killings, because you do not want to "control" the other killers.

    You bet they will, starting with me.

    That's cool. I'm not going to argue about it with you because I won't change your mind and you won't change mine.

    Have a nice day. Hope your gun doesn't go off as you pull it from your truck and shoot your child.

    Why do you think there is a waiting period on guns in the first place?

    Furthermore suicidal people are NOT a danger to anyone but themselves.

    Truth is - if you want to kill someone or yourself you don't need a gun to do it - progressives believe you do.

    There are no guns in prison yet people are whacked everyday and people kill themselves everyday, does the anti-gun crowed have anything to say about that?
