Do not ban handguns
Make restrictions (specify)
Either way it would be ridiculous to ban handguns or cell phones or make us use 1986 technology. We are well beyond Super Mario and we do not need the government telling us how to defend ourselves.
I have a question. At what projectile size does a gun become something else, e.g. a cannon?
Not all guns are cannons, but all cannons are guns.
The defining criteria the ATF uses to define a hand gun is not the projectile size, but the cartage size and the barrel length. A pistol bullet can be larger than a rifle bullet, but it will have less power because of the smaller cartridge.

It's questions like this that give all those gun nuts their legitimacy when they whine about slippery slopes. People wonder why we can't get gun reform on the table.
Yeah yeah...I know...this isn't the legislature or some law maker asking this question. But last I knew law makers don't bring stuff up unless someone in the public starts wanting something done on any given subject and it gains momentum.
I have an answer for everything...you may not like the answer or it may not satisfy your curiosity..but it will still be an answer. ~ Kal'Stang

Why should handguns be banned? Why is there even a question now about banning handguns?
First they ask if we should ban assault weapons. Then Magazines. Then Rifles. Then Shotguns. And now Hand guns. Funny how the same questions appear all across the spectrum with Political Sites.
As if the argument changes with the specificity of the weapon.
Here Obama loses on the argument and his issue. There will be no Assault weapons ban. Then the Switch up to Background Checks, even tho Biden says they don't have the time to go and prosecute such cases. Feinstein Shot down in flames with her Bill. Making a second loss for Obama with Reid stating it doesn't have enough votes.
Obama launches full scale assault and with Bloomberg since he lost on the issue. He cries out.....but the Majority of Americans are with me. Until a CBS Polls shows they are not. Now He changes up terminology and begins to call it Gun Safety. With a renewed vigor. He will tour the Country a 2nd time to push this agenda. Costing the Taxpayer even more money for a losing cause that he just cant turn around.
It's real simple for this question about handguns. Our answer is the same as all the Rest. There is no chink in the Armor. You can ask about all the different guns out there. The Answer Remains the Same. There shall be no Infringement upon the 2nd. With the 2nd. Or of the 2nd!
