The difference between cars, knives, baseball bats, etc., and guns is that GUNS ARE MADE TO BE USED AS WEAPONS. Cars are made for transportation. Guns are made to be used as weapons. It doesn't matter if you or anyone else might use them for sports, by definition, their intended use is as a weapon.
Should we ban everything thing that CAN be used as a weapon? No. Should we ban things that are made to be used as weapons to kill or maim? Yes, we should.
If it is used for hunting it is not a weapon , it's a tool.
If you assign a gun a singular intended use then cars are weapons airplanes are weapons baseball bats are weapons and knives are weapons.
