By comparing the more usefulness a knife has than a gun, sarcasm irradiates when she writes “a general substitution of knives would promote physical fitness” (line 5). The hyperbole used shows that a knife creates physical activity whereas a gun might diffuse the common man from a life of physical fitness; furthermore, the hyperbole shows the passion Ivins has against handgun ownership. When Ivins uses the rhetorical question “how do they know [that owning guns] was the dearest wish of Thomas Jefferson’s heart that the teenage drug dealers should cruise the cities of the nation perforating their fellow citizens with assault riffles,” yet again she expresses her witty style against handgun ownership (16- 18).

Sure, guns fire out bullets that can injure and possibly kill others, but who makes the guns fire? The people who pull the trigger do. What the people of the U.S. need to is to stop focusing on stricter gun control laws and focus on the topic on hand.
