what does "he will kill at the drop of a feather" mean?


Plz tell me the meaning of this sentence:

“He will kill at the drop of a feather”

Many thanks.

Hi Ann

I’ve never heard the expression “at the drop of a feather”, however “at the drop of a hat” is a common idiom. I presume the same meaning is intended, so your sentence would mean that ‘he is willing to kill at any given time and he is also willing to kill for no particular reason’.
