Banning handguns and other weapons
"My suggestion is a hope for the future that this nation will early in the new millennium ban the sale of handguns, automatic and semi-automatic weapons to the general public. This would be a legacy without parallel for the generations of Americans to come and it is something that we owe our children and their children."
