why was this page created?

there are already tons of pages for different guns why does there have to be a page for all guns in general?

In FESTERS QUEST there is an item called GUN. The blue GUN's upgrade your GUN, and the red GUN's downgrade your GUN. Dude. Yeah.

so shouldn't Fester's quest be the only game in this page

It essentially works as a category for the guns. I just went through the entirety of the objects database checking the guns I found and was making sure they were connected to this page. Yay for OCPD! So if you went to the objects page of the guns page you should find most if not all the guns in GB.

Makes sense to me!

This seems weird to me.  Let me see if I got this right:
Call of Duty 4 includes a Desert Eagle, which means Gun, Pistol and Desert Eagle should be attached?
 
Why not add some more categories while we're at it? 
Weapon -> Gun -> One-handed Gun -> Pistol -> Desert Eagle -> Golden Desert Eagle.

Ryan keeps trying to post a picture of his right arm in this section. He also does the same thing in the python section.

What does his left arm count as?

Until they invent a camera that doesn't need at least one hand to operate we will never know.

Well, that's not what it was originally for I think but its sort of evolved into that I guess. Its got other uses. For instance, for games that have no particular gun but do in fact have one, like Asteroids. the ships have guns but there is no name for them.... unless there is a pea-shooter concept page (I'm actually not sure)
 
In any case, weapon would not be a object. It's vague enough where I'd consider it a concept maybe. As for "one-handed gun" I'd say that it is a bit of a stretch to say that there a point to that one. That is like saying "yellow fruit" (unless there is a specifically named object in a game that goes by "Yellow Fruit") should be an object. "Adjective + Noun" does not make a object page.
 
So Maybe: Weapon(concept) > Gun > Pistol > Desert Eagle > Golden Desert Eagle
 
Oh and for your first question, IMHO, I'd say yes, they probably should if they are not.
