Municipalities should not ban the possession of firearms by law-abiding citizens

Completely unconstitutional, besides the fact, criminals already acquire firearms illegally. By definition criminals do not care that they are breaking the law, whether or not firearms are banned will not keep them out of the hands of people with the intent to use them to harm others. A firearm ban would only succeed in taking firearms away from citizens who require them for home defence, hunting, sporting and otherwise criminally unrelated activities. The idea that allowing every person the freedom to own a firearm will result in some gun crazed crime spree where any and every confrontation ends in a shootout is ludacris. The right to bear arms is essential to the defense of americans, not for home defense, but in the defense of any foreign power taking our lifestyle from us.

The police are rarely present when a crime is committed, and it is ultimately up to the individual citizen to be able to protect himself in the case of a home invasion.

While I understand and agree with the sentiment, the proposition is a non-starter. Such a ban would be (and has already been ruled) completely unconstitutional.

Dangerous, deadly, incredibly easy to create destruction. Very efficient method of hurting someone or escalating a bad situation into something worse.
