    Wait until they bring forth a ban against assault stones. Completely differe from stone stones.

    I am sure criminals are scared because they have not started about banning assault sticks yet.

    I don't know what it would take to eliminate the roots of violent behavior, however I feel eventually we can teach others that blaming knives, sticks or other items for the acts committed by the person using them is ridiculous. Some of the most effective martial arts based on unarmed fighting originated because knives and other items were banned.

    There is a film in which some authoritarian regime tries to elimitate violent behavior with drugs
    and mind control techniques. Most of the population dies and the rest turns into violent psycopaths
    who start killing everybody.

    My experience is that you never convince people. The way to push change in the eyes of the public
    is to bring people into minoritary hobbies (such as target shooting or knife collection) until
    there is enough people in it, with stakes in it, that it becomes resistent to political tampering.

    Any change in culture that is effective takes time and is done subtly. Just as many other nations have been whittling away at their citizen's rights to
    own firearms, they've been doing it in such a way that people who do legally own and use firearms are viewed as being deviants.

    The US has a gun culture, and instead of trying to hide it, safety and responsibility through safety courses and shooting sports are ways to reverse the stigma that guns only have one evil reason to exist.

    Sounds good, but even most of us who follow the same book do not agree what each page says.

    Complete agreement is not necessary. There is a general theme of respect, kindness, and responsibility.

    Besides that, any two people that totally agree on everything means that one of them is irrelevant. :)

    Put God above all, and treat your neighbor as yourself. The rest is

    But why do those have to be inspired by religion? Respect, Kindness and responsibility are all admirable traits. I don't need a fairy tale to back them up.

    While I agree, that comment feels like a cheap shot at moderate Abrahamic religions, heh.

    Don't have to be inspired by religion at all! You'd think being kind
    and respectful to your fellow man would come natural, but the Truth
    is that the NATURAL thing to do is Sin...

    Calling the Bible a "fairy tale" is an awfully large assumption.
