Guns protect innocent people from criminals. Like any tool, they can
be used for good or evil. When Tony says "The designed purpose of any
gun ever made is to kill or maim in the most efficient manner" he's
clearly revealing his bias as if killing people was always a bad thing
:^).


And besides, just shoot 'em in the arm or leg, medical technology is
good enough these days that the perp will survive... though wether or
not you'll get your ass sued somehow is now the question. :^)

You also open yourself to possible criminal charges. The courts
generally consider the use of a firearm to be "lethal force". If you
tell the cops you were shooting to wound rather than kill they're going
to wonder why you shot at all if you didn't think you had just cause to
kill.
