You can have a free and open society that is extremely efficient at detaining and diverting criminals.

I should clarify. Yes you are right, you can have a that is efficient at detaining and diverting criminals. And I for one support such measures. But my point still stands. Someone has to a criminal before you detain them and for that to happen it means a crimes has taken place.  That meaning that if want a 100% crime free you would have to put people in jail when they have committed no crime.

And my answer is yes.
Then your question becomes what rights do you want to give up? For example are willing to let the government have cameras in your bedroom because the asshole three blocks over raped his wife? If you say " of course, I would never do such a thing, I have nothing to hide" then what happens when the states values differ from your own? Maybe you spank your wife during sex and the government does not approve, what then?

Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

Great movie. I was actually thinking of that movie making these arguments, and that scene right there perfectly demonstrates the moral delimma the movie posits.

My rights end where they begin to trample over someone else, and visa versa, of course. That being said, I seem to have misinterpreted where you were going with your point. I'm not arguing to penalize people before they commit a crime. This isn't quite a straw man yet, but I'm not going to argue the point that you seem to be aiming at me. I'm not sure where all of that came from, because it doesn't seem to belong in this thread.
I don't believe you. Get over it.

You could theoretically prevent crimes before they happen as well as remove the need to jail the potential criminals.

Better short story.  Philip K Dick, man.  When people talk about the prophets of sci-fi they mean that guy, right thur. We've got threads on the boards, at all times, that are as good as lifted from his work.
I am the Infantry. I am my country’s strength in war, her deterrent in peace. I am the heart of the fight… wherever, whenever. I carry America’s faith and honor against her enemies. I am the Queen of Battle. I am what my country expects me to be, the best trained Soldier in the world. In the race for victory, I am swift, determined, and courageous, armed with a fierce will to win. Never will I fail my country’s trust. Always I fight on…through the foe, to the objective, to triumph overall. If necessary, I will fight to my death. By my steadfast courage, I have won more than 200 years of freedom. I yield not to weakness, to hunger, to cowardice, to fatigue, to superior odds, For I am mentally tough, physically strong, and morally straight. I forsake not, my country, my mission, my comrades, my sacred duty. I am relentless. I am always there, now and forever. I AM THE INFANTRY! FOLLOW ME!

But if you need to learn to defend yourself, then something is wrong. You shouldn't need to learn to defend yourself.

If your not going to be responsible for your own protection, who is?

Don't be dense. Do I really have to explain this to you?

What I was talking about before was the balance between freedom and safety. My point was two fold. In order for a society to be there must aways be some level of crime, however small, and that when you trade power to the government for safety, safety is not what you get. I think Parsons in 1984.

In my defense, I wasn't aware we were talking about fending off rapists at first, so I kind of fell into that one unprepared.

Yet still, I don't see how owning a gun would be such a bad idea for a woman who is concerned about her safety.
