    Regular human brains with a gun are less dangerous than chemically retarded human brains with a gun. Not every time, sure, but on the whole it would be an improvement throughout society.

    Or, no guns. That's really not dangerous.

    My ex librarian aunt, who doesn't even suffer from schizophrenia or bipolar disorder was violent to herself and others when not on medication. And that's just early onset Alzheimers and/or dementia.

    Not to mention little niggling details like forgetting to eat for days on end.

    And that's just the boring level stuff.

    *Except the heavily armored government

    There was a great Vice documentary about the militarization of America's police recently. Don't worry though.

    By the way, with the advent of 3d printers - guns will only become more prolific. There are new ones that print titanium.

    Viva le Utopia though. Good things always come from utopian visions.
