I also hunt with handguns & target shoot & yes...Defense....
If you want my handguns you will have to get them away from the criminals first....Any thoughts on how that can be done ?

There will always be handguns.
There will always be criminals.
There will always be criminals with handguns.

I guess it's the guns fault, right?

The plane truth and fact of the matter is this:

If the gun is handled and used properly and responsibly it will pose NO harm to a human being. Period.

Unless, of course, it is needed for self defense. Just remember, there are plenty of deaths caused by baseball bat beatings. Should we outlaw baseball too?

There is no way to rid the world of handguns. Work with this premise and come up with a better plan.

Kill him, Yep, if that's the only way. But it doesn't matter if he or I or he uses a club, knife, shotgun, rifle, or handgun.
The issue with handguns and CCW is continually proven to be the opposite of Gun control advocates. In Australia they are taken away, crime goes up. In FL and a dozen other states, CCW permits are issued and crime goes down. Yet gun control advocates continually want me to register my gun, have it taken away, etc to decrease crime. Their premise has been proven false too many times to hold any water.
