99. NO, guns are designed to get a projectile from Point A to Point B really quickly.

They do it spectacularly well, especially when in the right hands.

Now, what is at Point B can vary wildly. It could be, as you say, a living creature-a deer, a squirrel, a snake, a rabid dog, or even a human. Or, it could simply be a paper target, a cardboard box, or some old tin cans.

Whatever the target is, the gun's purpose and design was the same: to move a projectile from Point A to Point B with great efficiency.

Your nonsense about guns having ONLY one purpose is just that--nonsense. I have four guns and have never killed anything with any of them, yet the guns work fine and fulfill their purpose like any other tool I own.
