    A gun is a tool that also happens to be a weapon.  It has many practical uses, of which killing humans is just one.

    A sword is a weapon that has no practical use other than killing people.

    Of the two of them, a sword is by far the more violent item in it's practical application.

    That said, neither is inherently bad.  And the sword is considered a positive item in the world.  It's the symbol of truth, justice, freedom, and honor.  Where the gun, in particular the AK, is the symbol of tin pot dictators and tyrants.
