A lot of guns US manufacturers make that fit the assault gun profile aren't intended for killing either.

In general, firearms are made with the intent of injuring/killing. Let's not kid ourselves.

Yes they may not have the intent to kill; but most LEO's will tell you that is the most dangerous thing you can give a person.

Thats hardly an accurate statement painted with a pretty broad stroke.
I could poke a million holes in that.

Well of course, but we're talking about two separate issues.

Ok so what's the intent of most firearms? Educate me. Outside of shooting targets for sport, there's not much else they're used for that doesn't involve killing humans or animals as far as I see.

Shooting targets is fun and hunting is legal. Why should that be taken away from responsible people?

Bad guys will find ways to kill; heck look no further the 9/11; no guns used there

Alvin, what are you using to poke those holes? May I suggest an automatic weapon as you could shoot a million holes in the argument a lot faster.

I live in a very rural area where police response can be measured quite accurately with a calendar featuring kittens in a basket. Ok, any calendar...

I'm not one to hide under the bed should someone come into my home that I don't invite and anyone on here should be able to vouch for how annoying I am. Someone out there must want to do bodily harm, right?

Ever watch Alaskan State Troopers? You seriously need a gun out there. One cop covers the area of Maryland.

Every single firearm I have ever purchased was not purchased so I could use it to shoot at a human being.
I'll estimate there are hundreds of thousands out there in America just like me.
Their capability upon manufacture may be (among other things) to kill, it does not mean the owner will use it that way.
Smith and Wesson doesn't give a rats ass about intent. Nor should they.
Its a hunk of steel until the wrong person comes along.
And you could say the same thing about my garden shovel.

Ugh, I never said to take away guns.

Why does everyone make the assumption that if you're for gun control you want to take away everyone's guns?

More restrictions, tighter laws, and more enforcement is all I'm for.

Think you missed my point.

Just about anything can be used as a weapon. But a gun is a weapon.
