    Criminal misuse of firearms would dramatically push up negative externalities and we would have a war on guns.  

    Don't get me wrong, if you feel better being beaten to death than shot to death in a home invasion or robbery gone wrong, it is a victory.  

    We would also see the strong dominate the physically weak.  Women who leave abusive relationships would be less able to defend themselves against there abuser should he go looking for her.  

    An armed society may or may not be a polite society, but its also one where self defense does not require being built like a viking.
