Obviously purpose plays a factor along with intent. I believe Brian mentioned this earlier.
MoreToasties, you ain't wrong, nor is Brian, however what youngguns said is still true. Without a gun, someone intending to kill another will be able to find something else for sure, and guns still have purposes other than as a tool to kill.
I persist to believe that the bottom of the problem is people.
