This is a logical fallacy. You're trying to conflate the intended use of a vehicle to the reason guns were invented.

Drinking and driving = improper and irresponsible use of a vehicle/alcohol.

Murder = improper and irresponsible use of a firearm.

Both have legitimate uses, and both are used for legitimate purposes 99.9999999% of the time. Whether or not they cause harm is dependent upon the person wielding the firearm or driving the vehicle under the influence.

Your argument is fundamentally flawed and has no basis on logic. Try again.
