As another Lame Cherry exclusive in matter anti matter.
There has been a talking point in use by Gary Kleck and the National Rifle Association of an Armed Society Is A Polite Society" and most do not know the source. It delights me to share it here as it resonates from one of my favorite authors.
An armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one may have to back up his acts with his life.
The 2nd amendment is the sentry at the gate that protects all other rights of free men.
No other right has as great an impact on keeping a society peaceful and safe.
Pray to god the exercise of that right is never required.
Hosts Peter Gun and Mr Sommers "Floating somewhere in his pirate ship" talk about everything orbiting the 2nd amendment and beyond.
― Robert A. Heinlein,
The numbers of weapons in a society never elevate the number of crimes. It is in fact the opposite which the ignorant never consider in their fear of weapons, because weapon ownership expands when the threat of violence rises due to regimes enabling crime to promote a police state agenda or as in the Obama regime, threaten to deprive the Citizen from the right of weapon ownership, which moves the Citizen to arm further against the threat.

For those who worship at the altar of the Uniform Crime Rate reports and fixate on the majority of people know their assailant, that number in a majority is 53%. That is not a conclusive majority.
Furthermore the crime rate statistics are massive flawed as admitted in the data.
Voluntarily reveals that the data is incomplete as not all are participating, and generates from a sample of those who are prone to report crime statistics for federal funding.
The sample is based upon high population centers, where there is of course more aggression and rude misbehavior, due to the fact that urban populations are conditioned to dial 9 11 and trust in the police state, compared to the rugged individual rural areas who are constantly armed, and therefore the Armed Society Is The Polite Society.
(Data are for law enforcement agencies serving city jurisdictions with populations of 10,000 or more and county agencies of 25,000 or more.
Hence the Lame Cherry Inspired quote:
An armed society is a polite society, while a disarmed society is a police state.
