could you use the stargate as a wepon by say, sending its wormholes path through a star.    

       And would it you be able to intersept a wormhole the way you would a ring.

1) there was an episode where they accidentally made the wormhole go through a star. it caused the star to start dying. there are safety mechanisms bult into the stargate system to prevent such things from happening, but carter decided to bypass them with their dialing computer. the DHD wouldn't allow a lock if it meant going through a star.

2) No, the stargate goes by dialing a specific gate. the rings just shoot the matter stream in a straight line. unless you overloaded the recieving gate, the wormhole would jump to another gate on the same planet.

Haven't a gate already been used as a weapon?

Carter used a gate to connect a blackhole to a star and caused the star to go supernova..

The gate was also turned into a huge bomb that was suppose to have global impact if they didn't send it into space.

Yeah, I was typing when you were posting.  

Didn't Sokar also do something to the Stargate, or was that just the Iris?

that was some sort of particle beam sent through to heat up the iris to the breaking point. which carter later used to get to O'neill in "100 Days"

oh the ancient device in "Reckoning" used the stargate to spread the molecular deconstruction signal throughout the galaxy
