Ignorance regarding an individual's right to own a firearm in this country is rampant, thanks to a liberal media that continues to "herd the cattle" in the direction of the anti-gun corral.
Sure, the world would be a better place without firearms or weapons of any kind. It would also be a better place without disease and death, hurricanes and tidal waves, lawyers and politicians, etc. However, the reality of things is such that those things do exist, and we must deal with them daily. It's a nasty world out there, folks... WAKE UP!
...and as long as it is a nasty world I'll be keeping my firearms close-to-hand, thank you!

I'm not so sure about that. There's an old saying: "God created Man, and Samuel Colt made men equal." I wouldn't want to be a young, cute, 110 pound female walking in a not-so-nice part of any town or city, and be forced to face rape, robbery or murder at the hands of "unarmed" 250 pound males.
I do agree with your sentiment, that the world would be a better place IF it weren't violent. Which reminds me of an old Yiddish saying, the translation of which is: "IF your grandmother had balls, she'd be your grandfather." We all know, as you indicated, that the world is a nasty place. Thankfully, I live in Texas now, and have gotten my CHL (unlike 2 years ago, when I was in NJ and couldn't carry without risking serious jail time).
