From my reading, the original hand cannons were invented in China.
Do you really think they were invented for target shooting?....
I can just see them now at the target range with this:-

This poem is metaphorical. If you can tell me what it's about, I'll give you a prize.
Tisk tisk,
you know not what you risk,
with your blathering and ramble,
you talk too much to gamble,
your game is in distraction,
mine is addition, not subtraction,
I'll take your money,
take your time,
raise me a nickel,
I'll raise a dime,
for whoever has the most to lose,
loses whoever luck decides to choose,
I was never in danger,
with my lowly pair of twos.
Is it about a card game?

Again you are talking a intended use, not intended design criteria.
I agree an assault weapon is manufactured as a weapon of war.
But you cannot assign an intended use for a potential civilian gun buyer.
You do not get to decide for them their reason , that's being disingenuous and fallacious.
The fact is a car could be bought to kill people , it is quite capable of mowing down lots of people. But then again maybe they are buying the car to have fun using it legally.
The indented design of a gun is to kill and injure.

The indented design of a car is transport.

A gun is only a *potential weapon.
So are cars, airplanes , knives, and baseball bats .
You are looking at a man from a christian country and swearing him a christian. He is in fact only potentially a christian.
No a gun is a weapon what is so hard to understand about that?

When I was a teen, the guy remodeling my folks kitchen let me shoot his .44 Magnum.
When I was done getting knocked on my ass, he put some hollow points in and took down a tree with a 4" diameter trunk with one shot.
I was bringing down a bigger tree.

I would have used a chainsaw but those damn Keebler Elves wouldn't let me get near it.

Ok say you're out camping in the wilderness, just got the tent set up and then a bear comes into camp so you run he chases you 400 yard south 600 yards west and 400 yards north and you're back at your camp. What color was the bear?

Assuming you mean "atheism" and "belief", atheism is not a belief. It is the lack of theistic belief.
