If you can figure out how I got this number, you will be rewarded with a virtual cookie.
I shall start by saying that human is plagued with the impurity of imperfection. What one man wants, another does not want. With this having been
said, it's inevitable a utopian society is unattainable because of dissidence among society members.
I won't go into much detail of my utopian society, but one of its characteristics is the banning of guns. In all honesty, I see no purpose in guns
if a state of nirvana has been established. In a perfect society, no one hates each other or feels homocidal. Therefore, guns would only exist for
accidents waiting to happen. In order to alleviate the number of life-threatening risks, guns would be banned.
Unfortunately, what I've described is a perfect society, and as I said earlier, perfect societies do not exist. Although the authoritarian country
of North Korea can be argued as being perfect, their country sucks so badly that their form of "perfect" is unfavorable/imperfect to any conscious
man. A utopian society would not work anywhere since developed countries have intelligent people with high standards of living, and developing
countries have oblivious people with low standards of living. There ends up being suffering in both situations.
It must be acknowledged the world is full of diverse people with different intentions. Some seek to establish peace, and some seek the agony of
mankind. Guns make a portion of us feel safer. Regardless of this, it is written in the Constitution that we citizens have the right to guns, and
that should overall dictate we have guns. Personally, I feel less safe with guns everywhere, but I have no right to complain (oh, the irony...)
because it is mended into our constitutional document that guns be legal.
When the Second Amendment was written, the imperfections of humanity were recognized. The Second Amendment is for when our security is imperiled. In
the last 30 years, guns may not have stopped any massacres, but rather perpetuated them. But, if our lives are at risk when alien or even native
forces pose great harm to our nation, the right to bear arms may just make itself useful (other than hunting, etc.).
