When I was in battle on Okinawa as a Marine, I had a Browning Automatic Rifle. I’ll swear it just wouldn’t fire unless I flipped it off of safety and pulled the trigger.
I have a small rifle in my home. When I go to bed at night, it’s near me. I have yet to hear it fire on its own. Guns are inanimate, mechanical devices that hurt no one by themselves.
Way back when there were no guns, people used rocks, bows and arrows, spears, swords, daggers, poison and slingshots to kill one another.
They didn’t kill people on their own. It took people to use them. Same thing with guns.
