You can keep your guns, I'm saving up for a drone :)
Something to think about: Rats given a good environment are less likely to take drugs than ones that are not. Hmm, dont seem to be able to find that study now, think it was done with cocain lased water.
Know what I mean? Are places bad because people are getting shot, or are people getting shot because the place is bad? (As a general statement, not thinking about wars).
fredbill, me and my old man used to use connex to see who could throw bits the furthest, the rules were you had to stick to connex, no elastic bands, just the flexiness of the plastic, turned out however, the trebuchet was the best design.
@lowestOne I once heard that canada had more guns per head and less crime, that graphic turns out say otherwise however but of course thats true, the only use for guns in utopia would be for target practice and shooting cheating partners :D
A lot of the time in america there's no alternative apart from to turn to crime, Imagine you were dying of cancer and could not afford the treatment to stay alive, and its perfectly justifiable, anyone who accepts their fate without being angry at society is going to be a blind fool.
as for drugs though, Its always been a part of our human nature to take them, they aren't unnatural to us at all, every tribe ancient or modern has something to alter their mental state.
Nope, im saying if you create a society that puts you in a position of desperation through no fault of your own then society should expect that person to ignore the rules of society, with a lot of anger as a side effect
EDIT: society is not everyone, society is the system that everyone abides by
