“My teacher told me guns kill people. I told her my pencil failed my math exam”

“My teacher told me guns kill people… I told her my pencil failed my math exam” is a saying that has been printed on a popular image. It’s not known who created the image. The pro-gun saying means that the instrument or weapon is not at fault—it’s the person who uses/operates it.
   
“My teacher told me guns kill people. I told her that my pencil failed my last exam” was posted on Twitter by J.D. on March 25, 2021. “My teacher told me guns kill people… I told her my pencil failed my math exam” (shown on an image) was posted on Twitter by Sandra (GAB @ladyjane1226) on May 29, 2021. “My teacher told me guns kill people.

“If guns kill people, do pencils misspell words?” is a related saying.

Which reminds me of a funny meme I saw the other day…
A smiling kid is sitting at a school desk and it said:
“My teacher told me guns kill people. So I told her my pencil failed my math test.”
Perfect illustration of the misplaced focus on the tool, not the person behind it.
