    Public only allowed to get their hands on a Pistol?

    The Kill count in most mass killings would be cut in half. Right or wrong?

    Wrong. People will still acquire other guns illegally.

    Also, handguns are more dangerous than rifles.

    Handguns more dangerous than rifles is debatable.

    I'm no gun expert, but can't you conceal a handgun easier than you can a long barrelled gun like a rifle or shotgun due to it not being two feet long?

    Wrong, the problem is more complex than a law like that could handle. Also the type of person who would commit crimes with guns would not care about a law restricting gun purchases, thus they would have no issue with purchasing one illegally.

    This is pretty much the reason why handguns are more dangerous. Handguns are also more prone to going off due to user error.
