Actually it makes sense to me. Handguns can be concealed, they are great for criminal activities. Longguns is what you want when the brown stuff hits
the fan, military invasion, a corrupt goverment tuning against its people. If "they come to take your guns" you stand a better chance with an
assault rifle, if they send soldiers and you have your pistols you are out of range by a long stretch.
Sadly the tune out of goverment is the opposite. You are being told that "normal" people do not need assault rifles, but handguns are

a hunters perspective in West Texas:
Ever try to shoot a rabbit with a rifle? Or a rattler? Sure, a shotgun may work best...but if you are already lugging an 8 lb rifle in the brush
(and possibly a 300 lb deer out of the brush) why carry a shotgun, too? A nice sidearm is excellent for such a situation.
As well, protection of personal property. Granny may not mind using a 4-10, but most females (my mom is a widow) are intimidated by a shotgun, even
one that small. But a .22 or a .25 works well and isn't intimidating.
There is no need to limit guns. None. It needs to be enhanced. Open carry. This puts more required training into the populace, and more guns in
more hands. Crimes drops, less cops needed, less court time used, etc, etc, etc.
