"A well armed society is a polite society"

Anyone feel up to defending this topic against me? I'd start the debate myself but that puts the Pro at a disadvantage in my opinion.

How could you debate this? There's no way to quantify what a 'polite' society is.

It is commonly interpreted as simply meaning that when most everyone was armed (50 years ago and beyond), people weren't so rude and willing to call people names, because it was acceptable in society to simply take six steps back and shoot if someone did something as simple as calling you a liar or saying you cheated in a game of cards.

While I don't agree with shooting people over a game of cards, I agree with the general idea that the general population owning guns is a deterrent to criminals attacking the general population.

A well-armed society can be a polite society.
A well-armed society can be an impolite society
an unarmed society can be a polite society
an unarmed society can be an impolite society.
