    Just noting that per your definition of “gun” (firing directly) mortars and howitzers aren’t actually guns. They are artillery pieces which fire indirectly. Their projectiles fly in a high ballistic arc allowing them to engage targets outside their line of sight (over hills).

    Mortars fire in a very high parabolic arc at relitively short range. Howitzers fire at a lower but still indirect arc giving them very long range. Neither of these artillery pieces fire directly. An artillery piece which does is by definition a cannon.

    Guns are designed to engage an area target while rifle is used to engage pin point target.Both are low trajectory firearms with groves.
