Are guns designed to kill?

Yes. That is their sole purpose. It's not to put flowers in, it's not to use as a leg for a table, a gun's purpose is to put an end to something, be it a target, an animal, a ceramic disk or a human. If anyone thinks otherwise they shouldn't own one to begin with.

Side: Yes.

I am so glad pretend moralists like you are there to tell me what I should and should not own. What a shame being a busybody is no longer known to be a character flaw.

And factually, you err specifically as to the AR-15/M16/M4 family of weapons that shoot the .223 caliber round.

Side: No.

Her statement was contingent on whether or not you know what a gun is for. If you believe she was talking to you, you are admitting that you don’t know what a gun is for.

Side: Yes.

If's not being a "moralist" or a "busybody" to say guns are designed to kill. It's stating an obvious fact. Such a shame people who don't know that can own them.

Side: Yes.

Now we have the Jewel that thinks in it's shallow mind that a gun puts the end to a target or a ceramic disk. Both can be remade Jewel you are aware of that ?

Shooting an animal is a tax base Jewel !You Progressives are all about taxes !

https://www.doi.gov/pressreleases/new-5-year-report-shows-1016-million-americans-participated-hunting-fishing-wildlife

WASHINGTON - The U.S. Department of the Interior announced a new report by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service that shows that 101.6 million Americans—40 percent of the U.S. population 16 years old and older—participated in wildlife-related activities in 2016, such as hunting, fishing, and wildlife-watching.

The survey illustrates gains in wildlife watching—particularly around the home—and fishing, with moderate declines in the number of hunters nationally. The findings reflect a continued interest in engaging in the outdoors. These activities are drivers behind an economic powerhouse, where participants spent $156 billion—the most in the last 25 years, adjusted for inflation.

Now Jewel do you Progressives want to see what is reported by the Department of Interior( Note for you Dummies the Government) as tax dollars be erased ?

Jewel this is from January 2018 !

The vast majority are. If the goal instead was just hitting a target accurately then most rounds would be low power and low caliper like Annie Oakley used to do her amazing shooting shows.

Side: Yes.

If liberals would quit protecting criminals and gangs from the police & ICE, we wouldn't need high powered guns. But guess what.

Side: Yes.

Guns were invented during the 14th century specifically as a method of more efficient and deadly warfare.

There are air rifles designed for nothing more than target practice, of course, but that's a denomination of guns themselves.

A vehicle is designed for travel, but different types of vehicles have different purposes for travel. A lorry is designed for delivering goods rather than people, for example.

Just because a few guns (in the MODERN era) are designed for target practice doesn't mean that guns, in and of themselves, weren't initially and still are made for the main goal of killing and harming other human beings.

Side: Yes.

Progressive if all the firearms were confiscated than what would organizations like PETA have to complain about and how would they profit from that non-profit organization ?

Side: No.

No, they can be used for knee capping, or target shooting, or to intimidate staff in an armed robbery or for giving a warning shot to the back of the head of intruders.

Guns have so many uses the biggest of which is THE PROFITS THEIR SALES MAKE FOR THE WEAPON MANUFACTURERS.

I didn't say target practise I said, target shooting., as in competitions, such as the Olympics.

Whilst some modern air rifles may be able to kill they are not designed to kill but are used primarily for the sport of target shooting, loosely in much the same way as darts are designed to be thrown at target boards.

No, for example, the AR-15/M16/M4. The .223 cartridge is designed to wound, not kill. The Army believes that wounding a man takes three people off the battlefield (the wounded man and two men to carry him) while killing a man takes one off the battlefield. But fact mean nothing to liberals who will accept any tyranny that gives them the warm and fuzzies.

No Guns are not designed to kill……

A Gun holds not more danger than a hammer or club……

The bullets are what can be designed to kill…….. And at one time a bullet was the most popular way to obtain meat to eat. Cars and Plastic Trash bags are not designed to kill but are both a greater cause of teen deaths then bullets. T.V’s have been found to cause a high number of untimely deaths as well.

"Guns are technically understood to be designed to kill first, they are in fact designed and sold by power and accuracy. The problem is hunting generally requires that an animal is not alive when it is eaten. Note not all animals kill there food and let it cure before eating.

Technical guns are a tool to fire a bullet at someone who is firing a bullet at you. Guns can just as easily be seen as a piece of moving art as machinery, or a mathematical practical mechanism to demonstrate physics and calculus. A gun can be used to drive a nail into a piece of wood, though not as fast as the FYI nail gun. The problem is your lack of intelligence has given you the impression everyone can be indiscriminately punished due to the actions of others. Which may be the real reason behind your fear of a common defense to the general welfare.

Side: No.

If you think guns are not designed to kill and that an automatic assault rifle capable of firing hundreds of rounds of scorching hot lead at thousands of feet per second in mere moments is no more dangerous than a club then you are hopeless. And literally too retarded or moronic to even argue with.

I'm also guessing that due to your blinding and truly impressive ignorance of fire arms that you've never even been near a battlefield nor seen gun damage first hand.

You're a sissified NRA sycophantic dipshit.

Stay the fuck away from me. And other combat vets who you are nor even worthy of wiping our assez for us.

Side: Yes.

The last I knew, targets are not alive so how can the gun kill it?

The last I knew, defending ourselves from intruders is self defense and if you are trying to say we have no right to self defense, then go live in some gun hating socialist European nation.

You might have to use the sword or the knife in those nations to protect your family from intruders.

After all the wars in Old Testament times, do you actually think God is against the weapon?

God is against the shedding of innocent blood! It's the killer behind the weapon that God hates, not the weapon!

Weapons have changed throughout the ages, and thank God for the gun so that the weak can now defend themselves against the strong.

I guess you would be ok with a strong man coming into our homes killing each family member with a streak knife.

If one child in that home could get his hand on a gun, the scales are now even!

Side: No.
