2. Sorry but I think you are wrong.

Banning handguns would fewer being manufactured. It would prevent a hell of a lot of people being prevented from having one. Everyone? Of course not. But a lot. UK largely bans handguns. The result -about 40-50 gun deaths a year as opposed to our 9-10000. Yest if you look at the overall violent crime rate, UK and USA are an awful lot closer. Yes, it's an overall culture of violence but it;s also the easy availability of handguns.
