    It would quickly burn out the glue gun or trip the service breaker for the socket.

    The heating element will burn out in a short time 

    but before it does, the device wil get a lot hotter than it was designed to. 

        

    Really a dangerous situation that should Not be allowed to happen.

    it will burn out instantly when you apply 240 to a 110 volt appliance.

    You can't because the plugs are different.

    You can't plug it in to a 220v outlet. Why? So you stay safe.

      You certainly "can", if you know how.  But it would be dumb to even try.
