How typical. The progressive left cannot make a successful argument on a topic largely because they have no facts to stand on, only a weakening agenda. So, absent the truth, the left must manufacture the emotional equivalent…something that will override common sense and reason.
The most obvious of these is “climate change”, which used to be “global warming”. However, when it became obvious even to the scientific community that “global warming” was a myth with no basis in truth, progressive snake-oil salesmen quickly and quietly changed the stripes on the tiger and inserted “climate change” into the lexicon. Most saw through it immediately.
So it is with “gun control”. The progressive left, knowing that their anti-gun agenda will never move forward if the word “control” is used, has adapted a new brand…called “gun safety”. Now, instead of “gun control” legislation, America’s intelligence will once again be insulted by a simple change of terminology to “gun safety” legislation.
The National Rifle Association began real gun safety education in 1871 and it has never stopped. Highly trained volunteer NRA instructors are spread all over America teaching gun safety in dozens of training disciplines to men women and children in towns and cities everywhere. They teach real safety, not the politics of ownership, because saving lives is the goal of the NRA, not garnering votes which is the sole goal of progressives.
That the progressive left would even use the term “gun safety” is laughable and in fact, they have made themselves a laughing stock. Where the NRA saves lives, the left actually kills folks with their lies regarding firearms. If anything, the anti-gun left should be indicted and imprisoned for crimes against humanity, given the scope of the deadly falsehoods they create and perpetuate.
Too bad for Barry and his stupid lemmings that gun owners have a little more on the ball than the run of the mill “Iphone and EBT card” crowd. Far more, in fact. This continued attack on gun owners cannot help but go badly if the progressive left won’t let it go. By all appearances, the progressives haven’t learned any lessons since 1871, so they will have to be taught…again.
“Gun safety” legislation…what a laugh! What morons!
