Vincent had a number of things in mind when doing this comic. One of them was Looney Tunes along with a handful of other cartoons and comics in a similar vein.
The violence, along with the story and artwork, was a nod to them. However, when you shoot someone, it doesn't end with a face full of soot and a backwards beak: it ends with their beak hitting the wall behind them. This approach is depicted a couple of times in this webcomic.
Vincent doesn't want to over-inflate the purpose of the gory bits and there's no gun safety message. In Vincent's own words, "It's in the comic because it's funny, or at least I find it funny. Excessive violence against cartoon characters doesn't need a finer point on it in my opinion. If it's not your thing, I hope this serves as a decent disclaimer."
