    It's fairy tale time. Suppose that there's no crime whatsoever in our world of any kind whether it's violent or "victim-less". Crime would never occur in the future. Remember, this is a totally hypothetical world so no "not possible" replies...that's not the point of the thread.

    *edit: changed the question to be, "Would you carry a weapon in a world without crime?"

    And no, I'm not trolling...I only do that in the clusterfuck we call the main forum.

    if there was no crime there'd be no reason for them to make us give it up. I'd probably stop wearing it but i'd be pissed if i had to "give it up"

    *buzz* I'm sorry, that's not the question being asked, would you like to try again?

    And maybe there's a better way to ask the question...would you carry a weapon in a world without crime?

    Depends. I probably wouldn't carry in a big city, but if I lived in AK I'd still strap a big-ass revolver to my hip in case of bear. (& Etc)

    I'm asking this question partly because here in Shanghai, "Demolition Man" is on HBO and I'm laughing my ass off at lines like, "We're the police...we're not trained for violence like that!"

    Daily carry, probably not.

    But I purchase and collect guns for other reasons than personal protection. The guns I have for personal protection are actually dwarfed by my race/game guns.

    I would carry if I was the last being on earth. I just feel naked without a gun.

    After a few days of thought, I have changed my opinion.

    I would carry MORE guns because if this happened, you know the world is ending and fucking zombies are coming.

    I wouldn't carry unless I was going into a place of known wildlife threat. but then again, in a Utopian society, there'd be no guns anyway.

    I'd still have them, if available, for collecting and recreational purposes.

    I probably wouldn't carry, but I wouldn't give up my license.

    Unless you live in wilderness or are otherwise at risk of attack by a particular kind of animal, that would defeat the whole point of carrying. That said, I wouldn't place restrictions on possession or carry: for all I know, it's simply a more convenient way for you to transport the firearm to the shooting range, among other reasons.
