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.
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
--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.
