Gun-Banners Change Rhetoric, Not Goals

posted on July 21, 2016

A Politico.com story posted Tuesday under the headline, “Dems Urged To Retool Their Guns Message,” described how anti-gun politicians and gun-ban groups are attempting to tweak their message to make it seem more palatable to the masses—while not changing their ultimate goal of destroying the Second Amendment.

“… representatives from a broad mix of progressive groups sat around a table last week at the Washington offices of Global Strategy Group, where they received a tutorial on how—and how not to—talk about guns,” the story reported. One of their ideas: Get away from “gun control,” talking instead about “gun violence prevention” and “preventing gun tragedies.”

While some might be fooled, most gun owners in the know will recognize this as simple sleight of hand, since gun-ban groups aren’t actually changing their desire to push more restrictive gun-control laws on law-abiding Americans. The fact that they are meeting together to figure out how next to mislead gun owners says a lot about anti-gun organizations and their attitudes toward law-abiding citizens.
