Think about it, children are going to grow up being so afraid of guns, violence, hurting others, with all the rules being enforced, all the kids be
reprimanded for even implying violence. You are going to have a population so adverse to weapons of all kind, kinds who think the metal on a gun will
burn you because they are evil.
I am one of artistic talent, born to artistic parents. Ive always loved Swords, Medieval weaponry, Fantasy and Sci-Fi space ships and weapons. Ive
played PC and video games all my life, ive played make believe wars through my childhood with my He-Man and Gi-Joe action figures and watched
countless movies with death and violence of all levels in it.
I make mods and models in my spare time these days for PC games. I imagine, draw up and create uncountable horrors of war, terror and sorcery...
But im a pacifist, I dont like and care nothing for guns and if a world war broke out tomorrow id refuse conscription and consign myself to a firing
squad instead so I can face what ever lays beyond with a clear conscience of never having killed a fellow human. Heck if a person holds a knife near
me cutting vegetables or meat i get quite nervy, even when I do so myself Im not completely happy about it. And real violence is something I dont like
and would happily see the end of but not at the expense of a persons creativity or imagination... one can imagine the unspeakable, but it doesn't mean
that that person will do or like such things because of it.
But hey I'll be honest I can be protective, and given a few specific situation I would have to use violence to protect a loved one or someone being
harmed but that's my limit and I certainly wouldn't attempt to kill anyone in those situations.
Whats better, someone who knows no evil and is totally ignorant of such things... or someone that knows evil and recognizes it but would never chooses
to enact upon it.
