If you are worried before you pick up a dream dictionary that gun won't be listed in it, don't bother worrying. The word gun is listed in just about every dream dictionary imaginable because of how prevalent they are in the media and culture. The gun as a dream symbol is just as powerful. We see guns everywhere now, in movies, in TV, and sometimes in the streets. We even have to hear about them in lots of popular music. Guns have taken over the list of top fears, higher than snakes and almost as high as public speaking. With this in mind, it is hard to imagine the meaning of dream regarding guns as anything other than powerful. Correctly, it seems that a conventional dream interpretation for a dream about guns is very powerful indeed.
When a gun enters your dream, the first thing you imagine is probably danger. Well, that is probably a good thing, since the gun symbolizes danger in dreams just as it does in waking life. The gun as an emotional symbol is also host to many other dream interpretations. Some say that guns symbolize anger and aggression, or fear and cowardice. Some even say that they symbolize death. These are all true, the only stipulation being that it all depends on who is holding the gun in these dreams.
If you do see a gun, there is a good chance that you are really worried about something in your life. There are many different dream symbols that represent worry or fear, but the gun is one of the most urgent ones. If you are dreaming of guns, then you may be considering something very serious and important happening within the next few days that is of a very threatening nature. Gun dreams should be dealt with in some way immediately.
If you are dreaming about loading a gun, this is your subconscious way of warning yourself not to get too carried away with your angry emotions, it could lead to violence. If you dream that you are using a gun to shoot someone, then it denotes your aggression and anger, and at the same time indicates that you are feeling particularly angry towards one specific person, if the person in the dream is identifiable. And if you are attempting to shoot someone and the gun jams, fails to fire, or misfires, this indicates feelings of aggression as well as feelings of powerlessness. You may be extremely angry at someone for something they've done to you, and want to get back at them. This dream stands as a sign that you don't actually feel capable of getting retribution.
No matter what is happening in your dream, as soon as a gun is pulled, or even seen, the atmosphere of the dream becomes dark, and the gun is the focal point. When you see a gun in your dreams, make sure to find out why it happened as soon as possible.
