Is The Invention Of Guns An Extension Of The Human Need To Kill?
Killing animals, other humans, wars etc
Guns were invented as an effective method of immobilizing an enemy in war. Then as a means of self defense and for hunting animals for food. Though guns may still have relevance in hunting and some sport the love of guns (Gun culture) arose out of society's unwillingness to seek civilized answers to the issues that plague us internally and externally.
but i think "an effective method of immobilizing an enemy in war" is a polite way of saying killing them.
Don't you think guns (weapons) were made to kill whether it's an enemy in war, a dispute over resources, or an animal for food?
Yes, but in war immobilizing an individual is more effective to the theater than killing him. The guns and bullets made today for domestic use are designed solely to kill because we prefer to kill instead of seeking alternatives in disputes.
Guns were made to be more (effective) tool for killing whether it be for food, protection, on in times of war. Prior to guns there were sling shots, knives, swords, ax/hatchet, spears, bow & arrows, poisonous darts on up to today's nuclear bombs. In other instances things that were orignially invented for other purposes have been modified to assist in killing by adding guns or bombs to them. The airplane, boats, or autos/tanks are a few.
Man has always found a way to kill.
