There is only one reason to own a handgun in the united states, and one reason only; The genocidal warmonger gun nuts who actively want a shootout with the ATF own guns. Lots of them.
If these loons didn't have guns, there would be no real reason for anyone else to, either. But so long as we have schlitz-soaked trailer park "revolutionaries" muttering about killing off all the "ay-rabs and librulz," while claiming the 2nd amendment applies to them because Moses, er, Charlton Heston says so, I'm rather forced to maintain my own couple of weapons. Mostly because I'm a vindictive sort of guy who doesn't plan on letting any yee-haw numpty live through trying to "cleanse 'murika" of my presence or whatever.

instead of taking away people's guns I propose stricter background checks and more thorough ways of keeping guns out of the hands of sickos. For regular, law abiding people this would not affect them. The NRA shouldnt even oppose that, I mean who wants psycho's (like the VT guy) to get guns as easily as he did. ANYONE who has been committed should be banned from having guns, the end.
Its pathetic and it goes to show that a country that is meant to be the leaders of the world, still have attitudes that are more akin to the wild west. You are a trigger happy war mongering nation and its no suprise that the rest of the world sees you that way
