    People killed people when clubs were state-of-the-art, then with spears and arrows and knives and swords and poison and bare hands and sharp rocks long before guns came along. All indications would seem to point to them killing each other when the urge strikes, whether in ones and twos or wholesale.

    You can maybe marginally affect the manner, but I see no prospect for changing the fact that a very small portion of any population of humans will be willing to kill, out of rage or greed or a desire for notoriety or recognition or revenge or some damned thing else.

    Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government.
