Dude, unless I'm wrong. The reversed those bans (at least in DC, with Chicago soon to follow, last I heard) as unconstitutional. Set our country free!
All guns are tools. Just like an axe, shovel, hammer, saw, knife, and whatever else you want to use to perform a job. Yes, guns are meant to kill. It is up to the evolved animal holding that tool whether or not to use it. Not the gun or handgun as you like to villainize it. Handguns are a useful tool. I have a few of them and more than once it has given me the peace of mind that I needed.
Do I have an ego? Just b/c I'm a hand gun owner? That is ridiculous! Absolutely ridiculous!!! That would be like me making a racist statement just b/c I saw someone of a particular race do something that I could lump as a generality of his/her race. Stupid! That is stupid!
I have as much confidence with a handgun next to me, as a tool, as I do with a chain saw walking into the woods, also to be used as a tool. Tools...They are all tools to be used with caution and respect.
So, I have no problem with people not wanting to own guns for their own personal choices. Just don't infringe upon my own! I don't tell you what you can and can't do with your freedoms. Don't tell me! Especially when it comes to my CONSTITUTIONAL FREEDOMS!!!
