no i don't think that they are a great innovation because they cause too much violence with younger children. and that causes them to think its OK to use them on others.

Its not a matter of that... The fact that parents let their children play with guns and knives is their own fault. In fact, weapons help protect us.

The gun is the great equalizer.

An old lady can stop a body builder from raping and killing her if she's got a gun.

and of course, guns can be used for bad... like shooting up a school.

weapons in general? we need them. if relied on our fists for everything, the weak would die out so soon. unless you're a social darwinist, that's a bad thing.

They aren't a "must", although we have gotten so far with them, weapons do have their faults.

Side: Not a great

Although I don't like guns or their use, I must admit they are truly a tremendous innovation in their complexities. Weaponry has come a very long way throughout the ages and they are, perhaps, an important innovation insofar as modern warfare is concerned. I do not condone their use but can understand their significance.

Weapons don't kill people. People who use those weapons kill people. If there were no weapons, us, as humans wouldn't have survived the stoneage. We'd have been hunted down by hostile animals and we'd never have a chance! Today's world wouldn't exist without weapons. America wouldn't have been created. Just put it like this: If there were no weapons, the human race would never have existed!

I love bladed weapons, they are so artistic! It's art with a purpose, like architecture, and the nature of that purpose gives them darkness and depth. Each of them has a history, an application and links to famous warriors. Each of them has their own disciplines, so much so that it would take years to truly understand the legacy of art from a single weapon.

I think weapons are a great innovation, we owe our freedom to them. They helped us liberate ourselves from England.

Weapons are evil. But they are also inevitable.

Violence is a big part of human nature.

However, in this age of modern technology, weapons have become too powerful. It's too easy for any of us to wipe out all of us. So now we must work to redirect our violent impulses and find peaceful ways of resolving conflicts.

Without weapon technology innovations and breakthroughs we wouldn't have lots of other cool stuff like the microwave oven. It's like that trickle down theory thing.

The potential for microwaves to cook food was discovered when building radars, not weapons.
