NPR:


And by the way, advocates are no longer calling it gun control. They're calling it gun violence prevention.
All things Considered



House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has adopted a new term for gun control, “gun violence prevention,” in hopes that the euphemism will make it easier to marshal public opinion in favor of new gun laws as well as other policies designed to prevent shootings.
Beltway Confidential

Banana nana fo fana.

I suppose the term "control" carried too much baggage with it.

Watch the newspeak.

Okay, henceforth I will refer to those slimy, liberal gun grabbers as "Infringers".

This is how we do it... soften the language to make it more palatable. Instead of saying eat your "feces sandwich" it now becomes eat your "pre-processed food sandwich". See?

"Socialism" is "Social Justice", Socialists" are "Progressives", "ACORN" is now 150 other renamed entities, "Voter Fraud" is now "By any means necessary"...

It's deja vu all over again. Just more doublespeak to confuse the stupid sheep.

Time for some "Jeffersonian Action", IMO.

How about "Criminal Violence Prevention"?

I worked for many years in the gun business. In my career, I have owned and sold 1,000s of guns.
Not a single one of them, ever displayed the least bit of violence. In fact! I detected absolutely NO emotion from any of them, at any time. Ever!

So...What in the world, has happened to those poor guns of Nancy's, to cause them to behave in such a way?

I think we need to fund a serious study and train a small army of gun psychologists, to try and help these poor guns, cope with whatever tragedies they have experienced which caused them to lash out so violently. It's an obvious cry for help! And, it must be reaching epidemic proportions, for our Legislators to take up the cause, so fervently!

Would you please contribute your time and money to the, "Help Abused & Misunderstood Firearms Fund"?
Together, we can turn back the rust, and save these guns, from the horrors of politcal grandstanding!

Please give!

Too broad. They have to isolate like Piers Morgan is doing to get the right reaction from the wrong statistics.

I agree with "Criminal Violence Prevention" as a more appropriate term as it really has NOTHING to do with guns.
Gun Control is 2 inch groups at 50 yards on the pistol range and NO misses in combat IMO.
Whether you call it regulation or infringement, the fact remains there is far more gun violence carried out by law enforcement than any other segment of the domestic population.

Considering it worked for many other actions the Government has taken:

Insurance ---> Healthcare
War ---> Kinetic Military Action
Gun Control ---> Violence Prevention

Newspeak at its best.....

I think it is become very clear to the constitutionalists, and liberty movement types that this debate will end in the sheeple begging for "Gun Violence Prevention" TPTB will keep slaughtering the innocent as they clearly have done in the past to keep the debate alive until they get the result they want. They want the people disarmed so they can have their agenda 21 and global governance. They know that they can not achieve their goals with an armed population. That is the reason for this plain and simple.

The only way we can stop this somewhat peacefully is to throw them out of office and deport their masters back to Europe. Short of that there is no clear way forward that does not include very bloody streets I think.

Actually, a wide range of pro-gun activists are attempting to stage a peaceful Nationwide protest, only 10 days from now. On January 19, 2013, two days before Obama's 2nd inauguration we will celebrate America's 1st "Gun Appreciation Day"...Check THIS out...!

Also being discussed, HERE...

I am down with any and all peaceful efforts to avoid bloodshed. Looks like a good effort to get behind. Thanks for the link. I had not seen this being so busy working and preparing.
