    It’s not the gun, the knife, or the rock. Its the person using it.

    You leave out a crucial element here. You say knives kill four times as many people but don't specify then what. It's true that knives, which includes other cutting implements as well, kill several times the number of people as rifles. But they kill far fewer people than guns total. Most victims of gun violence are shot with a handgun. They are the real danger in terms of crime. The reason that we don't call for a ban on cutting implements is that there's not an easy way to do so. Knives are omnipresent and used in lots of different daily tasks. There would be no way to restrict their usage. Furthermore, their numbers in terms of deaths are relatively small compared to guns.

    Whether you think they should or not, they will eventually.

    Late one evening in Durkee, OR, a husband and wife noticed a strange car parked in the driveway of a house their neighbors reside in periodically. Curious, the woman called her neighbor to check with them. Discovering the house was supposed to be empty, the woman's husband retrieved his shotgun and headed to the neighbor's house. He found two trespassers and ordered them to leave, while he held them at gunpoint until deputies arrived. The trespassers were determined to be squatters. (Idaho Statesman, Boise, ID, 02192019)

    After Security Officers in St. Louis prevented an intoxicated, argumentative man from entering a balllpark, that man turned his attention to a passing motorist. A conversation ensued between the drunk man and the motorist. As the motorist tried to drive away, the drunk man became violent, leaning through the vehicle's window and punching the driver in the face. The driver was an armed citizen. Fearing for his life, the driver pulled out his firearm and shot the suspect, who was transported in critical condition to a hospital. (kdsk.com, St.Louis, MO, 02112019)

    In Corpus Christi, TX, officers were called to an apartment to treat a young woman for non-life threatening injuries. Earlier in the evneing, a man answered the door to his apartment to discover two men and two women asking him to lend them as money for someone he knew personally. Pepper spraying the man, the four intruders forced their way into his home. In self-defense, the armed citizen drew his firearm and shot several rounds to protect himself, striking one of the women. Afterwards, three of the home invaders fled and were at large. (caller.com, Corpus Christi, TX, 03052019)

    Studies indicate that firearms are used more than 2 million times a year for personal protection, and that the presence of a firearm, without a shot being fired, prevents crime in many instances.

    Shooting usually can be justified only where crime constitutes an immediate , imminent threat to life, limb, or, in some cases, property.

    That is fake. It is rifles and does not include pistols or guns where they type is not in the report. Guns win hands down.

      Every weapon has been a weapon of war. Rocks still are weapons of war in many parts of the world.
