    Yeah! This is not like the Old West where everyone was carrying guns. Although if the NRA had their way…

    “most violent” – “violentest” just sound stupid tbh.

    @Tue Elung-Jensen

    Who would have thought that anyone would use a made up word to be humorous?


    I’m surprised more cartoonists don’t do that.

    We don’t live in a violenter world – it’s just that people who want to be violentist find it easier to practise their violentism, because of the ‘improved’ weapons we have, and which are easily available to your average violenter, enabling him/her to wreak carnage easily, efficiently, quickly and with little personal risk.


    Thank you, arms industry and poor weapons regulations drafters. It is you we should be grateful to.

    interesting.
    can you name a weapon that has “improved” in the last 75 years?

    According to Steven Pinker this is by far the least violent we’ve ever been: http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=history-and-the-decline-of-human-violence

    Weapons may be more efficient, but claws and teeth are more satisfying.

    I’m always amused when people complain how bad things are now and how things were better in the “old days.” I always want to ask them, “have you actually studied history?” Things may not be great now but when have they ever been?

    Stuff that happens now is certainly less violenter than when I was young.
    .
    Laser sights on projectile weapons is a tremendous improvement in civilian arms. Military improvements would be the pixel drone targeting.
    .
    Much improvements in violenting.
