    If guns kill, Then why is there a human hand in the image with the gun?

    Regarding the bit about inanimate objects, well, it's often been my experience that left-wing statists imbue all sorts of inanimate objects with talismanic powers. If they can hallucinate into imagining that little bits of wood carved in the shape of an animal has some kind of totemic mystical powers, then why not a gun?

    I'd be willing to agree that "guns kill", to a point..... BUT


    what in Keebler's Cookies is that thing the hand is holding?

    edit: can somebody resize that thing, it is a terrible drawing that deserves to be seen

    If not for fear, ignorance, superstition, lies, and more irrational fear, leftism would have no philosophical foundations.

    My sig' line says it all ......

    The legend should perhaps be ''Guns can potentially kill - in the wrong hands'' By themselves of course - mere inert projectile launchers.

    Equally .. ''knives can kill''. Hammers can kill. ....... etc .......

    This is the gun pictured. If I try to 'cut and paste' the image, all that I get is an image which says "sample".

    That is one strange gun!

    Guns are too scary to draw a realistic picture of one? That's pretty funny. Can't blame the Canadians for this one. Last I heard they aren't allowed to teach the word and there it is spelled out in plain red and white.

    It looks a bit like those old four prong telephone jacks.

    A gun with a modem?

    That's one of the wierdest looking thing's I have ever seen. It kind of looks like it's attached to his index finger.

    Looks like a high tech rubber band gun. Or maybe a cigarette lighter. :)

    One thing for sure - that gun won't kill anyone!

    Looking at the picture it is plain that the artist has never seen a handgun much less held one.
    From what I cansee I'm not real sure he's ever seen a human hand

    Since guns kill people, does that mean I can be let off the hook if I shoot someone? I didn't do it, the gun did, your honor.

    I think we need a bumper sticker:
    Guns Don't Kill People, I Kill People
    or
    Guns Don't Kill People, Bullet Wounds Kill People

    Just to piss people off.

    The guns just make them go really fast

    I'm just trying to figure out how to contort my hand into that configuration. I think my fingers need to be a few inches longer.

    Of course guns kill people. If all they did was tickle, I would not carry one.

    That picture is just generic clip-art of a pointing hand with something vaguely gun-like scribbled over the index finger...

    ROFL

    Hoplophobia (pronounced HOP-li-fobia), from the Greek hoplon, or weapon, is an invented phobia coined by firearms instructor Colonel Jeff Cooper Jeff Cooper (10 May 1920 - ) is recognized as the father of what is commonly referred to as "The Modern Techniques of Shooting". He was born John Dean Cooper and is known to his friends as "Jeff". Cooper is a former Marine Lt. Colonel who served in World War II and Korea. He is also a history professor and an ongoing student of history, a philosopher, an adventurer, an author, and a shooter. In the early 1980s, Cooper published an article describing his ideal of a general-purpose rifle, which he dubbed a Scout rifle in 1962. His intent was to attempt to gain clinical recognition of the irrational fear of firearms. He suggested that "the most common manifestation of hoplophobia is the idea that instruments possess a will of their own, apart from that of their user'".

    From "To Ride, Shoot Straight, and Speak the Truth", Pages 16-19.

    Shouldn't it be that, "The guns just point them in the right direction?" :D
