I've always carried a concealed weapon for 8 years and never used it. Yet I should give up the right because of inner-city violence? Like I said, that's not the kind of nation I want to live in.
Why do you need these specific weapons?
"But certain interests of particular people are so important that it would be wrong - morally wrong - for the community to sacrifice those interests just to secure an overall benefit. Political rights mark off and protect these particularly important interests. A political right, we may say, is a trump over the kind of trade-off argument that normally justifies political action." - Ronald Dworkin (RIP)
