San Francisco is proposing a law that will ban handguns for its residents excluding, of course, the police, military, security and other jobs that require one to own a handgun. I can find no reason for anyone to have a handgun at home or even carry one around. I know this is a hot topic, but thought it would be interesting to see what others' opinions are on the subject. For the general public: Do you think people should own guns? Do you think people need to own guns? Do you think current gun control laws (Federal) are a true form of control? -- okay obviously I have a bias based on how the question is posed.
