You are continually commiting a logical fallacy.<quoted text>Man- you glom onto a phrase and do your damndest to pummel it into the ground.
No "bait and switch" fallacy here, RR.
And it is YOU who can't see the error in YOUR logic.
A gun is INTENDED to be used to kill.
What you are saying would be like saying:
Because a screwdriver CAN be used to kill, it must be designed to kill.
You have it SO bass-ackwards that it isn't even funny.
I'll tell you this: You and the other gun NUTS here have only strengthened my conviction that MUCH more stringent background checks are DEFINITELY needed before ANYONE is allowed to legally purchase a gun.
As I said earlier, if you can't or won't admit what the ultimate purpose of a gun is, you have no business owning one.
"A gun can be used to kill, therefore it's design is to kill."
Here's another example.
"If there's a fire, then there's smoke. Therefore, if there's no fire, then there's no smoke."
