    Yes/no questions coming up:

    Do guns kill people?
    Does marxism kill people?

    I'm no marxist, I just want to flip the tables on a ridiculous argument tactic abused by the pro-gun crowd.

    You need empowerment? Get a Life Coach.
    Empowerment refers to increasing the economic, political, social, educational, gender, or spiritual strength of an entity or entities.
    Guns themselves are indeed tools. But if they (like other tools) leave you better off economically, politically, etc they are tools of empowerment.

    As guns are inanimate no they dont kill people.
    Marxism, as judged by its implementation across the globe over the last century shows that indeed it does kill people-with guns or without.

    Yes, of course they do. They give a feeling of safety and security. Would someone without a firearm go outside to their dead end road to confront a vehicle that had no business being there? Would you answer a knock on the door in the middle of the night without gun in hand? Would you drive into a bad neighborhood unarmed?

    Do firearms empower people? Note that this is not pertaining specifically to the US or the 2nd amendment, but rather a general question.
