On arms control

The object of arms control should be to limit the possession of weaponry to those with noble intentions, and not to limit the manufacture of weapons outright.

Arms proliferation is only a problem because people use arms to commit crimes, such as robbery or genocide. There are certain types or groups of people who obviously intend to acquire weapons for the express purpose of social crime; it is in these cases that the transfer of possession of weaponry should be regulated.

Weapons should not ingress on any social interaction unless the interaction has been previously unanimously agreed upon to be an armed conflict by all involved parties.

The only truly noble intentions for the manufacture and use of weaponry are to demonstrate the creativity of the designer, to demonstrate the skill of the manufacturer, to demonstrate the skill of the wielder, and the enjoyment of the user and audience in the harmless operation of the weapon, and not in its effect of fatality.
