Why is the website named Airgun Diaries?

I read an article that said the Dalai Lama sometimes shoots his air rifle at hawks to scare them away from smaller birds. Here’s the link and snippet to the article:
https://www.nytimes.com/1993/11/28/magazine/the-dalai-lama.html

Q: I once read that as a little boy in Lhasa, you liked war toys.
A: Yes, very much. I also had an air rifle in Lhasa. And I have one in India. I often feed small birds, but when they come together, hawks spot them and catch them — a very bad thing. So in order to protect these small birds, I keep the air rifle.

Q: So it is a Buddhist rifle?
A: [ Laughs ] A compassionate rifle!

 

I also believe that the mouth is a gun, using air to throw words out, to say something. So that’s a second meaning to Airgun Diaries:)
