L_Killkenny my Webster's New Collegiate Dictionary (copyright 1977) offers the following: Weapon 1: an instrument of offensive or defensive combat: something to fight with 2: a means of contending with another

Every one of my weapons/firearms is perfectly capable of doing the above, although I generally use them for sport and recreation. While I don't think someone who considers a firearm to be the equivalent of a steak knife or a softball bat to be moronic, foolish or worthy of my pity, I do think it shows a fundamental lack of understanding about the nature of these items. I will continue to refer to my guns as weapons, because at the end of the day that is exactly what they are.
