"If you choose to own a weapon primarily designed to kill people the you are demonstrating premeditated intent to .... errr .... kill people."

no no no no no

If you chose to own a weapon designed to kill people you may be demonstrating the ability, as a last resort in defence of person or property, to stop people doing you harm. I own a computer and have the skills and ability to do harm with it - does that mean I have a pre-meditated intent to do so? I own knives and tools that make me an proficient butcher - does that mean I intend to butcher people? I own firearms - does that mean I intend to shoot people?
