"A gun is a powerful thing, (…).
The concept of a man empowering himself by penetrating the flesh (…) of another
man (?)(…) an independent (…) and phallic appendage,
in the embodiment of a gun. It's unnatural, It's an unnatural and
superficial way of proving one's superiority. There's no connection,
It's that lack of connection. It dehumanizes violence(,) I don't like it."
-The protagonist of the novel "Bar Fight," while held up at gunpoint.
