Perhaps the worst example of gun control advocates’ Orwellian double-speak: their use of the word “gun safety.” Anti-gunners deploy the term as a euphemism for gun control, of course. The idea being that we’d all be safer without guns. Yes, well, meanwhile, neither gun rights advocates nor proponents of civilian disarmament want innocent people to be shot. By anyone. Ever. So you’d think that . . .
we could join hands over REAL gun safety. You know: teaching young ‘uns to leave guns alone and tell an adult, spreading the gospel of the four rules of gun safety and proactively working on suicide prevention. Nope. The antis don’t want to know.
Why? Is their hoplophobia so great that they’re willing to let people die? Or, God forbid, does “gun violence” suit their purposes? What’s the matter with these people?
