A World Without Guns
An un-gunned society We cannot un-ring a bell, but we possess the wherewithal to soften its tone. Guns have provided humanity with a false sense of security. This insecurity has now come home to roost. Use your telepathy and transport yourself into the world where guns and explosives are obsolete. A brilliant young man gave me a birdseye view of his imagined world without guns. Let us take a quick look at his world. A New World without guns Imagine a technology that can provide an infrared beam or airborne spray that would disable the propellants in bullets, explosives, suicide vests, and the like. Law enforcement is provided specialized equipment to disable humanely and apprehend criminals. Criminals no longer have functioning guns. Guns can still be used for recreation as normal in specified areas, however. Police officers and other government agencies can employ the Un-gun technology at any designated place to prevent gun violence. Schools, airplanes, and other vital areas will be protected by explosive, and gun deactivating technology. Criminals and other assailants will be surprised when they discover that their weapons do not work. In this world guns used by criminals and other attackers can be neutralized massively or individually. Areas can be designated as gun-free zones, this time with real meaning. It will be impossible to use a firearm in these zones. We can eliminate many fears with this new technology. Some will argue that Second Amendment Rights could be at issue using this new technology. Others will complain that the people will have little protection from the government. We will be required to weigh the utility value of technology that stops gun violence, against the risks of harm caused by irresponsible use of guns. Already Available? The government has already invested in technology designed to limit the effects of firearms. Will this new technology abridge Second Amendment rights? Below is an excerpt from a document explaining how this technology works: “Researchers and technicians at W.I.T.’s material resources division have devised a molecular level chemical binding process that utilizes our patent pending innovations to bind a nominally inert chemical chain onto the oxidizing agent in a firearm cartridges propellant. While the chemical chain remains inactivated the fuel, commonly referred to as gunpowder, functions as it should, with no loss of efficiency or power. But should the use, or threat of use, from standard firearms be deemed dangerous by Law Enforcement or Government Officials, steps may be taken to activate the chemical chain attached to the oxidizing agent, rendering it unable to supply oxygen to the chemical reaction within the cartridge, thus permanently disabling it.” Founded in 1943 as one of America’s first independently-owned nuclear science facilities , The Wyoming Institute of Technology has been at the forefront of scientific research and advancement in the United States for more than seventy years, serving as a leading voice in a wide assortment of fields, from environmental issues to medical science to consumer tech and beyond. We will be providing more on this subject as information is received. This information will be available in our weekly news letters.
