Rainsford froze as he realizes there was no time to doge the shot of the general. He closed his eyes and waited, he wondered what it feels like with a bullet digging inside his body until he is finished to the last moment. A few seconds later, Rainsford opened his eyes and noticed the General throwing out his pistol to the ground below. “Consider yourself lucky,” said the General. “I forgot to load the pistol.” “Attending in a battle without any weapons is just like a hunter who does not know how to hunt,” Rainsford said.
As stated in Molly Ivins essay, “Get a Knife, Get a Dog, but Get Rid of Guns, she points out that, “any fool can pick up a gun and kill with it.” Whether you are a child, teenager, or grown adult you can easily use a gun to kill.

Even policeman, who are well trained, can have accidents while cleaning their guns. A Los Angeles County Sherriff’s Deputy was cleaning his gun, thought it was unloaded, and almost shot his daughter while she was doing the dishes. A bullet was chambered and he didn’t realize it!

The soldier says, “This gun will soon belong to you, so you better learn not to be afraid of it.” (Beah, 109) This is just the beginning of the oppression of the army.
Another way violence is shown during the novel is when Deegan has been shot: ‘ Another had torn a gouge out of his throat, like a plug letting the life board drain way in a hot red stream’. Figurative language is also used throughout the novel. This particular quote is using a simile, by saying blood is like a stream flowing from the wounds Deegan has suffered.

Those people can say hello to my little friend; that will teach them to quit complaining about it so much. They have to understand that guns do not kill people and that people kill each other with guns. Imagine this: how many times have you seen a gun walk on the street, sneeze, and the bullet (set off from the sneeze) make its way through some guy’s stomach? If you say you have seen it, chances are you make your nest in the mental institution across the street from the hippie store owned by the Tommy Chong look-a-like.
