Guns in the Star Wars Universe are called blasters. They are never referred to as "guns". Blasters shoot lasers, which are highly concentrated beams of light which can do great damage. Most blaster pistols can be set for stun or kill modes.

Blaster is also the name of one of the Autobots in the Transformers cartoon. He transforms from a robot into a boombox (aka ghetto blaster). He also talks in "jive" talk. Like his Decepticon counterpart Soundwave--who transforms into a tape player--Blaster would carry several robots with him. These robots would sometimes stay in his chest (sicne they transformed into tapes), and he would eject them when the Autobots needed reinforcements.
