If you could eliminate all guns and knowledge of how to make more, those with the most skill and longest knives could dominate.
The biggest could dominate the smallest. Groups could dominate individuals. Bigger groups could dominate smaller groups.
Away from weapons for a moment, in panel 2, they look like they’re wearing nothing.
Need to replace cars and trucks, also.
Someone would just come up with a way to weaponize those water balloons. Wouldn’t be hard to make a boiling water balloon, or simply freeze them first before throwing.
Remember almost anything can be made into a weapon and mankind if nothing else is very very good at finding ways to each other.
How far are you planning to take this? Surely JoJo knows what his father does for a living and the usefulness of a gun in the hands of a good guy. Is his dad supposed to go on patrol with a pocket full of balloons and jugs of water? It’s time for JoJo to think about, as Thomas Sowell says, “And then what?”
It would certainly make the world a wetter place.
Snowflakes would then Outlaw Water Ballons, and then we would have to invent Guns.
“Imagine no possessions.
“I wonder if you can.
“Nothing to live or work for.
“A burial ground for Man.”
