Recent studies have shown that for every 10 American's, there are 9 guns, but for every 10 UK citizens there are around 2 guns. And following the recent events in Florida i really think that guns should be banned full stop!! Also pistols are very very very cool.(like lightning McQueen)
There should be a handgun ban in Washington DC. This does not take away basic rights of citizens because there is so many other places to live with a handgun. The law serves a good in that it can help protect our government and a part of the country important to us.
I think a ban on handguns in the D.C. area would be beneficial to the government and further insure safety of those who are the higher ups of the country. I think it would be a good thing because than anyone with a handgun can be considered a suspect during crimes.
I do not believe handguns should be banned in Washington D.C. I believe people who obtain firearms legally and follow the procedures to get a concealed license should be able to take those handguns anywhere in the United States they want. I think it makes things far more dangerous, considering criminals don't care if its legal or not.
Although I personally think handguns should be banned everywhere, I do realize that we have a Second Amendment which says otherwise. The people of Washington, D.C. are American citizens and as a result, they have a constitutionally protected right to carry and use handguns lawfully. Being in proximity to the federal government should actually strengthen, not weaken, that right.
No, handguns should not be banned in Washington DC, because guns are not the problem. Rather, a lack of respect for laws and the breakdown of the family unit are the problem. Banning guns will only take guns away from people that are law-abiding. Rather, sentences need to be tougher, and there should be more law enforcement in DC.
