    Excuse me, but does this smell like chloroform to you?

    Some people are interested in the mechanics of guns, as I have pointed out. Just because that is its function doesn't mean that that is what they are used for by our American society.


    And why is integration of our culture and guns so "sick and twisted"? I can think of many, many, MANY more things more sick and twisted than a culture which accepts guns. It doesn't integrate KILLING, it integrates GUNS.

    I just don't understand what is so "sickening" about guns. So please explain.

    On some level, yes, with the emphasis on "wannabe". Perhaps there are a few people who are into that kind of thing purely and exclusively for the engineering, but my personal observation is that there generally tends to be far more people who are impressed by nice bits of engineering than there are people who know the first thing about engineering.

    In the case of tank enthusiasts, I find it less distasteful than gun enthusiasts because fortunately tanks are somewhat harder to get hold of. Hence it being more harmless than gun fetishism.

    I do accept your argument up to a point. I'm a photographer, and although I don't do the whole camera porn thing to such a great extent like some do, it's hard not to get excited by a particularly nice bit of equipment. But I'd struggle to muster that enthusiasm if I didn't like shooting people with my camera.

    They are designed to kill.
