You can use it to shoot targets or hammer your nails or as a paperweight, but it is an implement designed with that sole purpose in mind. I mean everyone has their own opinion on gun control but can't we do away with these absurd "But are we going to ban cars next?? How about knives??" argument.

Bolded above = Wrong.

It's really not that absurd. We all have opinions on this stuff. Some of us are wrong. Someday in our lifetimes we are going to find out who.

The evil people in this world who intend to do harm don't care about the rules. I'd rather be on the side capable of defending themselves and fighting back rather than those who are already dead because they couldn't/wouldn't/didn't want to.

I'd rather be in a country where neither of the people in that scenario had a gun...

That's not the world we live in. That's not reality.

Wrong how? What is a guns purpose other than to kill? What other purpose could it be used for that wouldn't be better served by another implement?

I'm ok with people owning a pistol to protect their home or a rifle for hunting, but I don't understand the need for assault weapons or high capacity ammo clips.

In my opinion, practicing to be more skilled with something does not change what the items function is.

So, all Olympian shooters are practicing to be better killing machines?

No, not necessarily. They are practicing to be more skilled with a weapon which was designed to kill.

No, as we have been over you could stir your tea with it, use it to pistol-whip a guy, scare a horse by shooting it into the air...

You can use most anything to do most anything else. But a gun is designed with one purpose: to shoot a bullet or bullets or musket balls or pellets through a person or animals body with enough force to kill them. Practicing to be better with this weapon, or organizing competitions or your skill with this weapon, does not change its purpose.

Dear NuggetFiend,

You are right. I think that's what you want to hear.
