hehe hmmm... so whaddya think of martial artists? are we more likely to be violent? how does that fit in to this? and whats the diff between an average martial artist and an average guy with a gun?

i think the main diff is education. many martial artists, like many legal gun owners, know what their doing, and how to do it, and what it does, and what the reprocussions of using their violence are. they are not ignorant about their ability for violence. ergo, they are more likely to be intellegent in their use of violence... and i think that makes all the difference.
