This is ridiculous. No one, not even Kucinich, is currently advocating banning handguns.

Be aware folks: I consider myself a far left liberal and anyone with a brain supports the 2nd amendment. The scary gun talk mostly comes from the GOP trying to scare you into voting Republican.
thanks

Come on, if you are going to support your cause, please spell it correctly...BEAR ARMS. To "bare arms", means something totally different, and spelling it like that makes you look like an idiot. Say I was to bare my ass at you, that means to pull my pants down and show you my ass, it doesn't mean to carry it around.

Definition of BEAR
transitive verb

a : to move while holding up and supporting
b : to be equipped or furnished with

Definition of BARE
adjective

a : lacking a natural, usual, or appropriate covering
b (1): lacking clothing <bare feet> (2) obsolete : bareheaded

Sure i support it, right after they win the war on drugs.

Criminals dont care about a ban and will continue to posses firearms the same way drug addicts dont care if drugs are illegal. The only thing this would do is remove arms from people that obey the law.

No way do we need to ban any type of weapon used to defend yourself or your family in Poplar Bluff.Just listen to a scanner and read the police reports.You have almost no protection from the Police.They don't do much if anything if they show up.If they do show up it is always way after the crime has happened and are reluctent to take a report.That is because the Prosecuting Att. will probably throw it out unless it is against a few select families in P.b.,or against one of P.b.'s finest ,families.If it does accidently go to court it is to make the city money then they let the criminals out.We have burgelers,rapists,theives,chil d molesters and drug addicts walking and riding up and down the streets every day in P.B.,The judges are a joke as the Pros.Atty.,We need to clean this town up .Vote these liberal Judges and Sheriff out on election day.

Il has a law reqiring gun owners to pay $5 for an ID card to own firearms. Criminals can get all the firearms they want. Of course wound a criminal defending yourself or your family and you will be sorry. So much for our rights.

I have some words for you too, "spelling", "sentence structure" and "punctuation".

You should have typed..."What a funny joke, you are better than everybody else. Two words for ya."

And yes I am better than everyone else, but specifically much better than you.

Slim: you have a narrow view of reality. Your ad hominem fallacy shows your lack of logic.

RAK: People illegally firing handguns on the east side will not care whether there are handgun laws or not. Those people are already breaking the law and its very likely their handguns are not legal but stolen.

I say let those east siders shoot guns maybe their actually start hitting each other.

You do carry your ass around but you keep it concealed and holstered in your undies. Remember, only moon someone in self defense.

If they ban handguns,then what's next? That will open the door for ALL your freedoms to be taken away! Something to think about.

It's a fact, proven and recorded that banning any type of gun in a specific area, raises the crime rate by 198%...all it takes is a signature on a bill that becomes law of the 'land'.

The reason the crime rate rises by so much is simple, refusal to turn in weapons, ammunition and accompanying items.

Dictatorships and other nonviolent take overs of countries have always started with disarming the citizenry.

I have to agree with Actual Liberal, the GOP keeps hammering home the message that the so called liberals want an unarmed citizenry...the funny part is so many of those liberals are members of the NRA.
