  1. That’s a tough argument to call either way; I’m instinctively opposed to it (as a pacifist by nature), but I can see the logical fallacy of opposing free possession of weapons in a world where weapons are always going to be available to someone who wants one badly enough. It’s a heart versus head dilemma, for me at least, and I’ve not reached a conclusion that satisfies my personal philosophy yet.

    Now, if we had a world without projectile weapons, and all combat was one-to-one, hand-to-hand with swords or suchlike … well, let’s just say I think there’d be a lot less people willing to start a street fight where weapons were involved! To face a man with a sword, close enough that you could strike him with your own, takes a lot more guts than popping caps at him from down the street. An improbable situation, I’ll grant you, but there you go.
