So.. why are guns bad. Let me start you off...
1) Instant death if used in anger
2) Instant death (if misused)
3) Instant death (unlike a punch up)
4) Instant death (unlike a knife)
Let me attempt to address these statements one-by-one.
1) When angry, a person may be so angry that their judgement is impaired. This impairment (although temporary) clouds their thought process and
reduces their focus. Perhaps they grab a gun (in anger) to kill someone. That gun happens to be unloaded....and click...click... Hmm....its a gun, but
it did not equate to "instant death". So, they grab a club (baseball bat, flag pole off the side of the house, axe handle, etc...) and beat the life
out of someone.
2) See #1. since killing someone with an object (any object) outside of a declared war scenario is misusing that object ....wouldn't you agree.
3) You get in a fight, a bar fight, a street fight, gang fight. etc... (The type of fight and location matters to the choice of weapon used). In a
close-in fight, it is MUCH easier to pull a knife. It's small, concealable, simple to use, no moving parts, nothing to chance it not working So in
close quarters, you stick the person under the rib-cage, making a gesture similar to a "7" that slices though the lungs (preventing them screaming),
all the major organs, and aorta......instant and silent death. A gun makes a noise....doesn't it? And even in close quarters, does not guarantee
instant death...(I know, I've been stabbed a few times in my day, and I'm still here to write aren't I).
4) See #1 - #3....same argument.
You see, the skill of the person wielding the weapon is the deadliest part of any scenario. The object is not "bad" nor "good". The intentions of
the person using that object is "bad" or "good".
So, I suggest you crawl back under your momma's skirt, and hide from the "boogie man". Let the adults have a serious and productive conversation
about the topic at hand.
