    Stupid things...like posting a picture of you (allegedly) holding a BB gun proves you are not afraid of guns?

    Not splitting hairs, this is pretty fundamental. A knife is made to cut; cutting innocent people with it is misuse.
    No. The label of illegal or unlawful is merely a legal term designed to identify that the user has done something against the law. It has nothing at all to do with if the use is proper or not. One can use burglar tools just as they were intended and the result is a crime.

    The invention of a gun - the creation of a gun was as a weapon intended to allow the user to inflict death or harm upon another in the furtherance of their aims or goals. When a criminal uses a gun in the commission of a crime, they are using it exactly as intended. Unlike a knife, it was not intended to have any other utilitarian use.

    well, certain guns were made for shooting birds. some for shooting deer & bear.

    some for shooting paper targets. and some for killing human beings.

    The shooting as sport at targets evolved later. Go back and read the history of firearms.

    A gun is a weapon which fires a projectile intended to kill or maim the being it is aimed at. If that is a human or a beast - the result is till the firer of the weapon exerting their will, goals and dominance over the being that is fired upon.

    The use of a firearm in a crime is exactly that. It may be illegal - but its use if proper in the context of the invention and goal of the item itself. To pretend otherwise is to change history and deny reality.

    the fact is, in 2012, there are MANY firarms that were designed specifically for target shooting or hunting.

    there are also many guns designed specifically for blowing holes in people.
