“Guns are made for killing. That's the only thing they're for. And they don't give a flying-flip what they kill. It's the people handling them who have to take all the responsibility. You always handle a gun like your life and the life of anybody around you depends on how safe and careful you are, 'cause it does.”
Bill Wallace, Beauty
