1. "Designed to kill" is a moral declaration.

If killing is immoral than anything designed towards that end would likewise be immoral.

But if deadly force can ever be employed morally, i.e. in defense of self or the law, then morality is no longer attached to the device but rather to the motives of those employing the device.
