5. Agreed...
If you take stupid out of the equation then the damage drops even more dramatically. Stupid drunken violence is never the answer. We will never be able to get rid of stupid. We won't be able to get rid of drunks (I think we tried that one already). We won't be able to get rid of guns. We won't be able to get rid of knives. We won't be able to get rid of glass bottles.

But guns, knives, and broken bottles let smart and sober people protect themselves (to some extent) from stupid drunk people.

So, weapons aren't the biggest problem I see in this article. I think the biggest problem is stupid drunk people.
