For a good society, there needs to be a proper balance of arming and disarming the people in it.

The constitution of the USA arms its citizens with certain inalienable rights

- the right life, liberty and pursuit of happiness,
- the right to truthful information about the functioning of the governement
- the right to bear arms to defend their constitutional and legal rights

It requires a balance and it is expected that the elected representatives keep the citizens disarmed by treating them ALL with

- Fairness, Respect and even Affection

The goverernment is supposed to  achieve this balance with laws it enacts in the right spirit of the constitution and enforcement of these laws in practice.

All social and political problems in the USA and from the USA stem from the failure of people succeeding the founders in government to do their part. Rather than disarming people in a postive way, they have tried to do so by trying to render the constitutional rights ineffective.

Other societies like Switzerland have succeeded better in achieving this balance even if they do not have the exact same constitution as the USA.

What do you think?
