Cool to see gun talk at the lounge. I guess I'm just used to guns at this point, but I really don't see how people view them as weapons. They are tools, they don't become weapons until someone uses them for that purpose. A pencil can become a deadly weapon when wielded properly (actually seen it first hand). It all comes down to how that person intends to use the tool. And if you lived in the area I live in you'd be crazy not to arm yourself with something, all the gangster wanna be's make it dangerous to go out at anytime of day.
