Jump the Gun
Knives hates guns. He never touches them unless he absolutely had to.
Because the last time he had, people had died.
'…This is…a tool for killing people.'
'Bullshit…it's a tool for protecting your life.'
'I don't want to kill a person in cold blooded murder…'
'You just did. Don't see them having second thoughts do you? You were just shot in the leg…!'
'Grow up, Knives. Life isn't a do-over. Either you fuck up; right here, right now, or you go and screw someone over. There's no such thing as second chances.'
He knows someone who loves the ghastly weapons; like a child lavishing attention upon a puppy. Someone who knows a gun almost as well as he knows the crippling darkness he is forced to wander in for the rest of his life.
A person who is steel tempered in fire; who has tasted metal and the sweet copper that is blood all at once.
'…Christ be done with this. You're such a child.'
