Maybe hold it against your head and pull the trigger. That way you’ll know for sure if your gun is defective or not. Given the number of guns in circulation your fear mongering doesn’t seem to be making the country any safer.

…if it saves one life…?
I am somewhat ashamed to say that when I first read the quote I parsed it as coming from ‘our side’ and referring to the anti’s attempts to get firearms more regulated via the Consumer Product Safety Commission, and calling them out for their fear-mongering on the ‘defective/inherently unsafe*’ nature of guns.
*Obligatory “Is GUN! Is not SAFE!” quote. 😉
“You can’t give her that! It’s not safe!”
IT’S A SWORD. IT’S NOT MEANT TO BE SAFE.
“She’s a child!”
“What if she cuts herself?”
THAT WILL BE AN IMPORTANT LESSON.

The dark beast wants me dead.
I don’t understand what the Beast is saying. He should demonstrate the technique he advocates first, just so we can all be clear on the concept.
