A firearm used to murder, someone. The term 'burner' is only used when a firearm has at least one body, on it. After the weapon has been 'bodied' it is usually dropped at the crime, scene or cleaned up and sold on the streets for less than half its retail, price (e.g: Retail for a Beretta 9mm is $900, after being 'bodied' it will be worth roughly $300). It is purchased by another criminal, to murder someone and the process is repeated again.
There has been weapons seized by the police which have more than 20 bodies on them from all different crimes and sometimes even different countries.

4.
A nickname for the participants of a burning event, such as Burning Man, or any of the smaller local/regional "burns" that Burning Man has inspired. The term is not considered derisive, but rather a term of endearment and self identity throughout the "burner culture."

The word derives from that fact that a variety of art work is featured at all such events, and some of it (or much of it) is intended to be set on fire and burned to ashes during the event. Indeed, all burn events climax in the ritual burning of a large, wooden effigy and/or art edifice on the final night(s) of the event.
"Hey, I didn't know you were a fellow burner!"

"Oh yah, I've been to Burning Man twice, as well as a couple local burns back east."
