Starting with simple clubs, people just advanced weapons technology further and further. Clubs lead to penetrating weapons lead to thrown weapons lead to launched projectile weapons and so on. Today, we have missiles and drones to kill without risk to any lives of those who fire them
one of the major mistakes so many people make with a semi-automatic is that they carry it not only loaded, but with a bullet chambered. For example, my gun can carry thirteen bullets in the clip which is more than enough, but you can get fourteen by putting on in the chamber and ready to fire. The problem with this is that guns are far easier to fire if a round is in the chamber. This is how so many parents are shot by children who pick up guns from purses or drawers.
But I don’t think I could take a life, so, fine; no guns. And no, it does not make me less of a man. If anything, it proves that I don’t need my courage to come from a barrel.
