You're the first to even post sources. Anyway it's not the guns fault. If guns did not exist the criminals would kill people with something else so the people are to blame. Guns as with any other weapon have no say who lives or dies. If you ban guns that will only make law abiding citizens more vulnerable. Think about it. If you were going to commit a crime with a gun would you want to acquire it the legal way or the quick and easy illegal way?
I am somewhat of a man of honor, but just in a different way. I don't see honor in killing. Many aspects of life can be honorable, but not ending someone elses.

No... but a gun can (i.e. .50 Caliber riffle).
I must call bullshit on this. First off it is a very common misconception that the .50 caliber rifle is anti personal, but in reality it is used as anti matter. It's meant to do stuff like penetrating a trucks engine block stopping it rather than killing a general a mile away. For a .50 rifle much further than 1 1/2 miles accuracy is random at best. There is a rifle though that has a range of close to 3 miles. It fires the same 20mm bullets used in an airplanes nose gattling gun. It's not used by the military though since it is way too big and not practical.
The blue bullet is a 20mm and the one right next to it is a .50 cal.
The small rifle is the .50 cal and the big one is the 20mm.
