    Should handguns be illegal?

    Simple question.

    Should the guns that are used the most in shootings, handguns, be banned in the United States?

    Nope, shot guns are too hard to conceal in your holster.

    only if the police and military cannot use them for the supreme sovereign (The people of the united states) should have free access to any weapon a civilian police officer can use and the standard individual weapon of an infantryman unless one's rights have been set aside by due process of law

    Nope.That said the only way I would support a hand gun ban is if all the handguns that the government has was also banned and melted down,after all what is good for the goose is also good for the gander.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    No firearm should be illegal. Not any of them.

    Those aren't "firearms". A "firearm" is a weapon which expels a projectile by means of explosive action. Grenades are just explosives and missiles are self-propelled projectiles; neither of those are firearms.

    Yes, machine guns and artillery should be re-legalized.

    Only if they have a folding stock and mounted grenade launcher.

    1. No, that would be unConstitutional.

    2. No, because handguns are also the firearm most commonly used for self-defense.

    3. No, because taking mine is going to create a really bad day for some poor unfortunate sumbitch....

    They are legal, just heavily restricted. Muzzle loading artillery isn't even restricted, actually.
