Congresswoman: Don’t Say “Gun Control” When Talking About Gun Control

posted on June 14, 2017

When it comes to gun control, anti-gun advocates want more of it, they just don’t want gun owners to know what their real goal is—control.

We see more proof of that this week as Rep. Elizabeth Esty, D-Conn., called on those wanting more restrictive gun laws to use more politically correct words, according to a report at pjmedia.com.

“I’d never say gun control; never ever, ever say that. Do you want the government taking control of your life, anybody in this room?” Esty asked while discussing gay issues at the Center for American Progress Action Fund. “We want the respect and rights and privileges and responsibilities of every other American. That's what we want, right? That's what we want and so that's why we really should be talking about gun safety.”

Whether she calls it gun control or gun safety, Esty is still talking about the same thing—making laws more restrictive for law-abiding gun owners instead of actually addressing the issue of violent crime.
