A most convenient solution. By allowing every individual to carry arms,
you neatly bypass such institutions as police, judge, jury. Of course, OmSig David advocates that completely free access to guns will lead to a decline in violent crime, since criminals are likely to be shot should they try to perpetrate a crime.
And punishment is easy. The same penalty applies to pickpockets and murderers: Death. Of course, there could be problems in social institutions, such as schools. For instance, how to resolve bullying if kids have access to guns? And even if they don't, it won't be hard to get them if their parents and other adults are free to use them.
But, let's skip that issue and only focus on adults and guns. Suppose Eve walks on the sidewalk, on her way to work, when two guys on a scooter pass her and one grabs her handbag. In righteous anger, she pulls her gun out of the holster, and shoots.
Two situations
1) She misses and hits an innocent bystander instead. Oops! Well, that is the risk of walking on the streets, huh?
2) She hits her target in the back, and he falls of the scooter. Now, his buddy is pissed off, so he grabs his uzi and drives back, shooting at the woman but not caring what he hits. As long as he gets the bitch that shot his buddy!
Or should I assume that in your society all Americans are not only immediately expert marksmen, but also that there is no such thing as retaliation?

Society at large would disintegrate if people could use bullets instead of words to solve their issues.

Najmelliw

Recourse to history,
and to current events in Vermont ( which has NEVER had any gun control laws )
and to Alaska ( which has repealled all of its gun control laws )
show that this state of affairs exists ONLY in the fevered brains
of paranoid leftists.

Thru out most of America,
the only gun conrol law was that guns possessed
be shown openly called " open carry ".

The ill effects that u describe did not follow;
the police, & juries, etc, continued to work the same as before.
As to bullies:
there are a lot less of them in practice;
" an armed society is a POLITE society. "

OmSigdavid,

Ok, so all Americans do indeed become marksmen! That's good to know.

It only takes one.... How many did it take at Columbine?

The REAL Weapon ( BEHIND the SCENES )
The REAL problem is how parents choose to have their children raised. The apple usually doesn't fall far from the tree. It seems that in these times, as a new generation is born, each new apple gets further from the spot where the previous apple fell, morally speaking.

But people usually don't want to look inward, so they re-direct that blame outward. In this case, they blame the tool instead of the user of the tool.

Using this same line of thinking, it would then be just as justifiable to outlaw automobiles. After all, more people get killed in vehicles than in wars! According to the law, in certain legal cases, the automobile is considered a deadly weapon. So does this mean that we then outlaw cars? Come on. Everything goes back to square one.

The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world, and that hand has increasingly become either the government or day care centers.

Don't get me wrong. I'm not saying that all women are supposed to stay home while the men go out into the world. But some kind of arrangement and schedule must be made between them, so that they can raise and (where suitable) educate their own children, and be willing to make the necessary sacrifices to do it.



The Hand that Rocks the Cradle

(William Ross Wallace / 1819-1881)

Blessings on the hand of women!
Angels guard its strength and grace,
In the palace, cottage, hovel,
Oh, no matter where the place;
Would that never storms assailed it,
Rainbows ever gently curled;
For the hand that rocks the cradle
Is the hand that rules the world.

Infancy's the tender fountain,
Power may with beauty flow,
Mother's first to guide the streamlets,
From them souls unresting grow--
Grow on for the good or evil,
Sunshine streamed or evil hurled;
For the hand that rocks the cradle
Is the hand that rules the world.

Woman, how divine your mission
Here upon our natal sod!
Keep, oh, keep the young heart open
Always to the breath of God!
All true trophies of the ages
Are from mother-love impearled;
For the hand that rocks the cradle
Is the hand that rules the world.

Blessings on the hand of women!
Fathers, sons, and daughters cry,
And the sacred song is mingled
With the worship in the sky--
Mingles where no tempest darkens,
Rainbows evermore are hurled;
For the hand that rocks the cradle
Is the hand that rules the world.

The male's organ for copulation and peeing can be a weapon as well.

Here's a pic from a manoeuvre I attended a couple of years ago

True, which enables him to shoot from the hip. Laughing

<For those who don't know what this means (from answers.com)>:

"shooting from the hip" - the fast shooting accomplished by drawing a gun from a holster and shooting without raising it...(Slang; mid-1900s)

I love this one LightsAndMagic. I'm not sure if I've read it before but it seems familiar.

I'm not saying you are wrong in general, but your point is just a variation of "guns don't kill people" with a "cars kill people too" twist.

I think a certain level of common sense should come into it when debating the merits of machines potential usefulness vs it's potential danger. To me, a cars usefulness outweighs the danger, while a guns clearly does not. (Although I can see situations, mostly rural, where they might). The level of gun ownership in the USA is outrageously stupid from where I sit. Have another look at those stats I posted earlier.
