Did you even make it past the title before you decided to post?
Very good point OP. I had a definite "Why didnt I think of that" reaction.
What is the point again? Your avatar is beyond absurd.

Let's check wikipedia.... en.wikipedia.org...
A gun is a weapon designed to discharge a projectile.
What's a weapon you ask? en.wikipedia.org...
A weapon, arm, or armament is a tool, device, equipment or instrument used in order to inflict damage or harm to enemies or other living beings, structures, or systems.
Oh wow? It's a machine....you're right about that...that's used in order to inflict damage or harm. Using it to "scare away animals" or for "plinking" doesn't change the fact that it's a tool designed to kill. Why do people use these "machines" as protection? Oh that's right, because they severely injure/kill whoever is impacted by the projectile that is fired. Otherwise, they'd just use a nailgun for protection like you mentioned....or bash two metal trash-can lids together to make lots of sound.
Let's get serious....Guns are -designed- to kill and/or severely injure when fired. It just shows how you are if you can't even admit what the purpose of a gun is.
