    ...handguns are illegal in Canada. You have to prove a need to get a license for one, and 'I don't feel adequately protected by the police' is not a sufficient need.

    Personally, I think banning handguns would be just about the best step we could take. If you need a gun at home, a rifle should do you just fine.

      And ultimately, gun removal is what it will take.  

      Unlike the dark fantasies of the paranoid paramilitary types, any removal would involve programs like mandatory buybacks, which have proven successful in other places.  

      There are some people who would have a need; people who've filed restraining orders, perhaps, and security/police who purposely enter dangerous situations for a living.  But general fear is not excuse enough.

      Conservatives need to realize that their Silent Moral Majority is neither silent, nor moral, nor a majority.
