Thought Experiment on Weapons

A thought experiment: For the following weapons, if you could push a button and somehow make them all ineffective or unobtainable, would you?

  • Nuclear Weapons
  • Automated firearms (think, machine guns)
  • Nonautomated firearms
  • Semi-Autonomous armed drones
  • Human-directed armed drones
  • Non-nuclear long-range missles
  • Land mines
  • Naval mines
  • Tasers
  • Nonlethal sonic weapons
  • Poison gas
  • Nonlethal gas weapons
  • Directed EMP generators
Two additional questions:
  • What if you had to have the country where you live (or to which you are loyal, if applicable) make the sacrifice 10 or 20 years before the rest of the world?
  • Would you have prevented the American use of a nuclear weapon against Japan? Any additional thoughts on that?
