An engineer’s observation:

All humans make errors; all human processes sometimes result in errors.

Guns amplify human errors.

This was triggered [sic] by this news article:

There were (at least) two very different sorts of error:

  1. The decision to shoot was wrong
  2. The shooting itself was poor quality

When someone says “guns don’t kill people, people kill people“, is that supposed to make me feel better?

No! If people can amplify their errors with guns this scares the shit out of me!
