But that implies that everyone is out to kill someone with the gun they're buying. Why should all citizens be assumed to be killers just because they want a gun? What if people actually need the gun quickly?
It doesn't imply or assume any such thing.
And if someone legitimately "needs a gun that quickly", then I would suggest they should instead head for the local police station.
The police don't hand out or sell guns for personal protection. And it's highly doubtful they'll send an officer to be someone's personal security for a while.
If someone legitimately "needs a gun that quickly", then I would suggest to you that there is absolutely something the police can do regarding the situation. Otherwise, that individual really doesn't "need a gun that quickly".
