if i were to posses a gun that could fire a bullet hundreds or thousands of times faster than the speed of light (impossible i know, but IF i could) what would the repercussions be? could i kill someone before i pulled the trigger because of relativity? what would happen?
idk just curious

Look up the propertied of tachyons on google.  it has been suggested that some particles always travel faster than the speed of light
