So /k/, I've got a question...Well, more of a statement. What is with the disconnect between firearms and the point of them as a weapon, in my mind they have one use, Ending lives. It seems there isn't any hesitation to show off firearms but there seems to be a huge void in owning weapons and real life situations where you might actually use it. I'm sure about 80% of you have never actually been in a situation where your life or well being has been put at risk to know if you, as an individual are capable of operating your hardware under the duress most of you claim to be capable of using it under. I know there are people who can and have killed people but, what i'm getting at is why does there seem to be a huge void owning firearms, and there intended purpose, Which in my mind, is killing, Whether that be animals, or people. And target shooting as a purpose for a firearm in my mind isn't justified as a purpose, solely based on the fact that you're aiming and shooting an object with the intent of one day having someone on the receiving end of said sight and being able to hit the target and not miss.
TL;DR: Do some people own firearms just for the sake of owning them, Or are all weapon owners actually willing to use them to end another individuals life who poses a threat at any given point.
