Not in my day.

"More stupid" was the only proper usage.

I guess we've had to dumb down the English language for dolts like you.

It wouldn't matter. Guns aren't "made to kill things"....
Guns are made to shoot bullets.
Period.
That they CAN be used to kill is irrelevant.
Guns are made to shoot bullets. Sometimes a person kills another person using a gun.
Cars are made for transportation. Sometimes a person kill another person using a car - intentionally....
Would you say that because people use knives to kill people, then knives are "made to kill people"?
Guns don't kill people.

Bullets do.

Why should you shake your head? Those kind of arguments are made daily on these threads.People engage in hair splitting and demand extreme specificity. Some posters are notorious for the practice.
I've frequently stated the zenith of human honesty was when humans could only grunt and growl. No masking of ones intentions or bactracking utilizing weasle language.

Apparently you didn't look very carefully at the chart you provided the link to.
For the chart that lists "Percent of deaths in age groups", death by firearms was the 3rd highest percentage for those in the 5-14 year group, and the 2nd highest percentage for those in both the 15-24 and 25-34. It's *over 20%* in the 15-24 group, and passed only by motor vehicle accidents.
If you don't believe me, take another look.

Your apparently is very very wrong.... and I have no idea why you would have made such a statement!

No I'm not trying to distract you from a school shooting by bringing up the thousands of the others.

That statement is cold, callous, and is a display of antisocial behavior on your part.

I would like for you to be able to stay with us but comments like that is going to get you booted.

Considering our nation just buried a whole classroom of kids and a lot of them were shot through the head by some callous psychopath.

Were guns created or did they evolve?
