But what if there are no laws to establish morality? Without a commonly-accepted moral ground, anything you do is technically good and moral, because no one is able to tell you otherwise.

commonly-accepted moral ground is only applicable within a community ancient civilizations used to find it completely moral to sacrifice their own children but its generally frowned upon today.

Real life experiment was police strike in Canada. You would think that super nice Canadians would behave but shit hited the fan. Army had to take to the streets to restore order. Google it

laws only apply to law abiding citizens. which is why gun laws and drug laws dont work.

A more accurate description would be "Good people don't need laws to tell them to act responsibly, and bad people won't concern themselves with the laws anyway."

I'm fairly certain Plato never said anything like this. He held that laws were important to a well run state (at least if the Republic is any guide to his thoughts).

If something like this does get said in one of his dialogues I'm guessing this graphic has it out of context.

So, source or it didn't happen.

Nah... Fear of the law is the only thing that's stopping me from stealing everything that isn't bolted down.

I would've considered this as possible if it wasn't for the fact that plato is damn near always wrong

This is what I always thought for gun control, the good people will not buy a gun because it illegal but the bad people will find a way to get one anyways. Thus creating more unnecessary murders. If everyone carried a gun you would think twice about committing ANY crime against the general populace.

The main issue with this would be completely restricting the mentally ill from owning firearms. Despite what the media seems to portray the mentally ill are less likely than the general population to commit a violent crime, and are far more likely to be a victim due to there vulnerable nature. They still should be evaluated, but a mental illness should not be a barrier to owning a firearm. Plus, automatically restricting the mentally ill from gun ownership would discourage people who are suffering from a mental illness from seeking help, as doing so would both reduce them to a second-class citizen and stigmatize them. So it really would be better not to start taking rights away from the mentally ill unless absolutely needed (l.E. Imminent chance of harm to self or others), as it will stigmatize those who suffer from mental illness and cause more peoples to not seek treatment. Personally, I would rather see someone who's known to have mental illness be in treatment and own a gun, instead of owning a gun solely because they refused treatment.

Finding a way around the law isnt that hard, you just have to by-pass him

It's interesting to note that there are barely any "good" or "bad" people out there.
Most people are neutral. We all have capabilities to "do good" or otherwise "do bad" and we've had our fair share of both.
