How many would still carry?
How many people would still carry if the world was a perfect place and there were no such things as bad guys and crime?

Let's put it like this...I'm going to miss my guns in Heaven, that's the only time your scenario will come true!!!

I said "yes" because the only world that could ever be crime-free is a world where everyone carries 24/7.

I don't carry just for the two-legged critters, and a crime-free world won't change the occasional need to shoot a four-legged critter.

The only 'polite' world we will have is when everyone IS armed.

If there was no chance of crime, and no chance of being attacked by dogs, or other animals. I guess I'd have to say no, as there would be no need then. But, that's not possible so the gun is always on me or within reach.
Better to die on your feet, than to live on your knees.

I voted yes. It's hard to break a good habit.

Carry is a drag, literally.
Holster, gun, spare magazine if not two, magazine holster, knife, OC/CS, planning my clothing and body motions as related to a given outing & situation amongst the public, being and staying 'aware' of my surroundings, ongoing study and analysis of multiple state & local gun, carry, and civilian defense laws, constant ongoing training, continuing education as related to defensive handgun/shotgun/rifle skill$, maintaining membership$ at multiple indoor and outdoor ranges, hunting down and purchasing ammunition which is no longer Budweiser priced, quarterly 'discussions' with my wife about why do I "walk around wearing a gun", having to tell my kids and deal with crying when I say no we can't stop at some random K-12 school to play in their playground...because daddy is carrying and it's unlawful to posses on or about school grounds.
I could continue but you get where I'm going.
Carry and the responsibility that comes with it is a drag.
If such a hypothetical world were truly existent and sustainable, which it isn't not even in comics and fairy tales (!), then yes I would trade in my weapons and all my gear tomorrow and be done with the aggravation.
I wouldn't miss them either. I'd not mind spending my time,money, and brain power/overhead on something other than sharpening my claws and postulating from which direction would I predate myself if I were a predator.
To me and my mind guns are little more than tools.
Tools as a means to a stop or survive crime against my person end.

The question is so ludicrous that I didn't bother to vote...
