Hello everyone. So everytime I get in a debate with someone, they ask "Why didn't Harry just pop Voldemort?". I'm going to list a majority of reasons. I will also list reasons why other Wizards won't die by a gun. I'm going to use facts and interject some opinion here. So, here we go
Q: Why didn't Harry just pop Voldemort with a AK-47?
A: Funny you asked. See, it is stated non-magical objects do not work inside Hogwarts. There is no way Harry could have brung a AK-47 into Hogwarts. Plus, if Harry would have popped him, he simply teleports away, heals the wounds (Gun holes are normally minor) then silently teleports behind Harry, disarms him of the gun with the swish of his hand (like he disarmed him of his wand) then rips him apart.
Q: Why won't bullets work on Wizards?
A: Bullets actually would work on some wizards. See, wizards recieve 11+ years of training, plus 8+ training. I believe. Let me ask you this, Wizards have withstood high falls, and things of the like. It is mentioned that their bodies are very different then Muggle bodies. So, what is a bullet going to do to them? Even a low-leveled student has healing spells, if a bullet hits them and they are good at non verbal magic, a white flash from the Wand wll conceal the wound. If they can only use verbal magic, they are in trouble. Normally you can't speak when you are hit by a bullet.
Q: Would a bullet work on Dumbledore?
A: I'm going to say no. Here is why. I am sure we can agree a Curse is stronger then a bullet, right? Dumbledore had put on a Horocrux ring that weakened him gravely. However, through skills, he survived and got to Snape. Snape sealed it, Dumbledore had a year to live. His body is different then a muggle body. I bet if a Muggle had put that ring on, they would have died instantly. The body structure is different between a Muggle and a witch and wizard. Plus, Dumbledore can wave his hand and disarm of the gun. Dumbledore has the ability to sense things, peer through thoughts, etc. He'd sense if a Muggle was coming for him with a gun, thus he'd go invisible, disarm of the weapon, then handle the Muggle. So would voldemort. There are many things that put Voldemort and Dumbledore beyond a average human.
Q: Could McGonagall get killed by a gun?
A: Depends. I myself am not sure if McGonagall has practiced Occlumency. If she has, then she would obviously sense if someone was nearby. If they pointed the gun at her, if she was quick enough, she could turn their gun into a tea cup. But, again, a Muggle body is different then a Wizard body. Don't forget that, so we don't know if bullets would kill her.
Q: Would Snape get killed by a gun?
A: No. He'd place them under Mind Control before they can even get a target.
Q: Would Draco get killed by a gun?
A: Yes. But, then again, he may be able to heal due to Muggle body differences. He, however, has never used a Healing spell. Thus, he'd die.
Q: Would Ron Wesley die to a gun?
Q: Would Harry Potter die to a gun?
A: Difficult. I doubt he could if he had the ancient magic love Sacrifice still on him. Under other circumstances, it's likely.
Q: Would Bellatrix die to a gun?
A: Again, we don't know if Wizards can take bullets, but they have withstand high falls and the like. So, based off of that, I'd say a bullet wouldn't do much.
Voldemort and his Death Eaters took over an entire Government, Muggles are no threat to him. He can just wave his wand and put the person who's trying to shoot him in a trance. What's stopping him from just entering their minds and influencing their thoughts? Nothing. Legilimency can surely do such.
I hope this answers questions. If you have anymore questions, let me know.
