Here is my best explanation:

'use guns' is the definition.

'unruly mob in shakespeare' is the wordplay.
'unruly' indicates anagramming the letters.
'in' means one lot of letters goes inside another.
'shakespeare' becomes 'bard' (I've seen this before).
'mob' with letters rearranged gives 'omb'.
'omb' inserted inside 'bard' is 'BOMBARD'.
