Good point. Then have gun-free bars with metal detectors. Some places attract morons with guns for a variety of reasons (airports, courtrooms, bars) and the unarmed should be able to choose and set up places where they can enjoy each others' company without having to concern themselves with the possibility that someone else there is armed.
That would concentrate the armed drunken morons in fewer places, increasing the chances of them doing us all a favor by taking each other out of commission. Combine it with a noble political statement and set up bars that require
everyone entering to be armed.
