People aren't whining about Nukes because after the previous half-century they deserve a break. NO NUKES, NO NUKES!! (Reminded of the Cold War?)
I agree with jetflock their is absolutely NOTHING positive about guns. But I also agree with digirati. Guns and people who would use them to advance
their selfish interests abound all over the earth and as long as they do guns will be needed to stem this as well as enforce peace. (Notice I said
enforce peace, not stability, that can not be found with brute force.)
It's a viscious cycle I guess. Those whiny reporters cry rat on any related gun issue until they realize their are those out there who don't give a
**** about the freedom of the press and are more than willing to snatch the life right out of them on a whim. Stoking the flames.
Violence begets violence, but pacifism succumbs even quicker in the face of armed aggression from a singularly-purposed aggressor; whether that be a
state or an individual.
