This is something people could of used besides guns that could of killed people fast
just like guns do, But it would cause a lot of skill and strategy to
find away how to kill someone with a throwing knife. You need aim and
everything if u miss then there is a good chance of people knowing were u
There would be so many more people in the word not dead if we never had guns in the world. Guns kill people fast and you can do it without being herd or seen. Most gun shots cause sudden death unlike other objects like knifes and other weapons because you have to be smart were your going to strike and how u going to get that close to someone without them noticing.
This is another thing they might of used instead of guns, A catapult is another thing people used to attack or kill someone instead of using guns. This was kind of like a cannon used to destroy stuff from a far distance.
They used cannons to also fight and kill people besides guns. The balls that come out of these cannons are very heavy and can travel for a very long time. This is what they used back in the 1700's to defend there bases and to also damage or destroy any large objects coming towards them.
Firearms were invented in the 12th century in China,after the Chinese had invented gunpowder in the 9th century.These inventions were later transmitted to the Middle East and to Europe. The first successful rapid-fire firearm is the Gatling Gun, invented by Richard Gatling and fielded by the Union forces during the American Civil War in the 1860s. A gun projectile may be a simple, single-piece item like a bullet, a casing containing a payload like a shot shell or explosive shell, or complex projectile like a sub-caliber projectile and sabot.
Most guns use compressed gas confined by the barrel to propel the bullet up to high speed, though devices operating in other ways are sometimes called guns. In guns that are firearms the high-pressure gas is generated by combustion, usually of gunpowder. This principle is similar to that of internal combustion engines, except that the bullet leaves the barrel, while the piston transfers its motion to other parts and returns down the cylinder. As in an internal combustion engine, the combustion propagates by deflagration rather than by detonation , and the optimal gunpowder, like the optimal motor fuel, is resistant to detonation.
