If everyone where given weapons would we destroy ourselves?
I remember seeing a Sci-fi movie long ago, it was the usual alien invasion kind of movie. However in this movie the Aliens didn´t exterminate the humans by directly attacking them.
Instead what they did was supply each and every one of them with powerful weapons, thus allowing the humans to do the extermination of the human race themselves.

Now my question is this lets say that an Alien race did indeed arrive on Earth and like the ones in the movie gave all the people of the earth access to equally powerful weapons what would happen? Would we destroy ourselves in a huge wars or might our self preservation instinct be large enough that we would cheese any war before it got big enough to destroy human civilization?.
