People who say that anyone can shoot a gun are not entirely correct. Anyone can pull a trigger but being able to effectively use a firearm and understand how one works is more difficult than people give it credit for. My guess is that a guns are considered inelegant due to their noise, silencers...
Life isn't that simple!
There are other things that need to be taken into account here. Like the whole spectrum of human emotion. You can't just lump everything into these two categories and then just deny everything else!
