If you own a firearm whose only purpose is to shoot people, then yes, it is safe to assume you intend to shoot people.

Except there is no such firearm. Simply because you cannot conceive of other purposes does not mean those purposes don't exist. Most firearms in the US, regardless of type, are used in sport or training far more often than they are used to shoot people.
