Guns are made to kill.
That is their sole purpose. Certain guns such as hunting rifles and shotguns are meant to be used to kill animals, presumably for food, but not always. No one is eating a Rhino.
Handguns and assault weapons, have just one purpose: To kill humans. There is no other purpose in making or owning a handgun or assault rifle. There just isn’t.
Either you intend to kill a person, or you intend on fantasizing about killing a person. You can claim you want a gun so you can shoot at paper targets, and most of the time that target is shaped like a human torso and head. So, what are you thinking about when you shoot that target in the head?
You don’t need a gun, you just want one. A lot of us do.
We are fascinated with guns. They’re powerful. They’re scary. There is a reason they’re black and not bright pink. They look fucking cool. They must us feel fucking cool. And we want one.
