Handguns should not be banned, as the people have a right to self-defense, however there should be laws to decrease the amount of gun violence. For example, I understand that gun stores run background checks. Make laws that further enforce that. Guns should not be handed to to anyone who have a record of misuse of a weapon on their record. True not every criminal has that record because not every criminal has been caught. However, it is at least a small step in making sure no one is a victim to gun violence.
