I've heard many people from the NRA state that "Guns don't kill people. People kill people." That's true. Guns are just tools, like a hammer, a knife, or a car.
While people can kill other people using these tools, that doesn't make all tools equal.
- A hammer can be used to hit a nail, or to hit a person. It was created though to hit a nail.
- A knife can be used to cut a fruit, or to to cut a person. It's normal use though, is to cut food.
- A car can be used to drive from A to B, or to drive into a person or into another car. It was created as a mode of transportation, and that is it's normal use.
