Another guy I knew really did threaten to have his personal enemies killed by hired gunmen after the war” (Vonnegut 1).

Due to the charac- teristic of Johnny’s father, the hereditary gene of violence affected fixed some of Johnny’s personal- ity. Also, Johnny was only the one who serves as a vent to his parents’ anger.
