On a smaller level, societies where people own guns are usually more peaceful ones.
In what world are you living where societies where people own guns are peaceful ? If people own guns, people will be killed by guns. If people have no guns, they can't kill their family by mistake when thinking being in presence of a criminal or when being drunk. If people have no guns, children can't take them at school and kill other students. I live in a country where there is a few guns, and we have many less problems. No Columbine here. No Corean killing others after playing Sonic... And, when a problem occurs, no need to say that's the GTA fault cause we don't have to protect guns sellers' business.
Numeric stability is probably not all that important when you're guessing.
