42. Guns were designed to direct a projectile downrange
Guns were designed to direct a projectile downrange. What they are aimed at is the user's responsibility. The target could be a piece of paper, a jug of water, or potential food (my region is grossly overpopulated with deer, so many gun-owners actually do much good with their rifles here).

I own firearms, farm equipment, chainsaws, automobiles, and all sorts of other tools that could be dangerous if misused. Dead from a chainsaw is no better than dead from a gun. I hope to avoid either (and even more importantly, protect those I love from any such mishaps).
