Let’s do a simple, objective experiment and test a popular view. Let all those who deny that people are”killed by guns” have gun-armed killers put down their guns and see how many deaths at malls, movies, schools, bases, streets, homes, workplaces result from deaths committed by “bare hands.” (I’m even willing to include blunt objects!)
Don’t you know it: Guns kill! The instrument is the instrumentality! [The fact or quality of serving as an instrument or means to an end].
