You completely changed my point. I didn't say a car is not a car, or a shoe is not a shoe.

I said, by the logic that a gun is not a weapon unless it is used a such, a car is not a vehicle unless it's being driven, a hammer is not a tool unless it's hitting nails and a sneaker is not a shoe unless you're wearing it.

Of course a "car" is a "car", a "shoe" is a "shoe" and a "gun" is a gun".

By your logic, a car is not a vehicle unless it's being driven. It's the exact same logic that a gun is not a weapon unless it's being used as one.
