  • The Solution To Violence

    Become weaker than the person that is trying to kill you

    Take away any and every possible means to defend yourself

    How simple, I'm surprised it hasn't been tried before

    GUNSMOKE

    Chester runs/hobbles quickly down the street, shouting "Mr. Dillon, Marshall Dillon!"
    He enters the marshal's office excitedly saying "The outlaws are going to stop the stage 5 miles out of town, what shall we do?"

    Marshall Dillon says, "Take the guns away from the passengers to avoid violence."

    Anywhere in the world that seems stupid. Yet that is what we do in schools, businesses, and airlines.
    The people think the Constitution protects their rights; But government sees it as an obstacle to be overcome.
    If your religion says suicide and murder are wrong; Aren't you doing both if you are not prepared to defend your life and the lives of others?

      Disarmament is stupid but so are/is quals rooted in bullseye shooting, arbitrary scoring standards, the training most recieve if they recieve any, people's ability to make good decisions especially under stress and so on.
      Failure is an opportunity to learn.

        Learning when NOT to SHOOT is critical. Learning that there may be other solutions is also critical.
        Avoiding "bad places" is not cowardliness but good sense.

          I'm amazed as well, ricco. It reminds me of the political left's efforts in the 1960's to the 1980's to achieve peace. It was to weaken the US military. Their rationale was that a strong US military was seen as a threat by the Soviets and the Communist Chinese, and the best way to insure peace was to lessen the perceived threat and reduce US military readiness.

          Stupid? You betcha. But there were and are people who really think that way.

            They don't think, they feel.

            Gun control ≠ crime control. But it is sold with that lie. Look at Venezuela to see the real truth. Disarmed, now the people can olny throw rocks at armed troops.
