I have been trying to find a single word that describes those who choose to try and oppress any of my civil rights in general, and my 2A rights specifically. In the English language, so many words are already politically charged or carry many definitions and meanings. I went in search of a Latin word that we can use to describe persons and actions that serve to limit our 2A fundamental civil rights. For your review:

Gravo (Latin), pronounced: gra_vō

From Here (http://latinlexicon.org/definition.php?p1=1006917&p2=g):
1. to make heavy, load, burden, weigh down, weight, oppress
2. [figuratively] to burden, oppress, incommode
3. to make more grievous, aggravate, increase

From Here (http://www.latinwordlist.com/latin-word-for/latin-word-for-burden-32461233.htm): The Latin word for Burden is Gravo, Gravo is defined as: to oppress, burden, make suffer.

Usage:

1. That Gravo is trying to steal my civil rights.

2. The Supreme Court has found that the 2A is a fundamental civil right, but this Gravo remains defiantly oppressive.

3. That Gravo doesn't like it when we exercise our 2A civil rights.


So, what say you? Time for a new term for the anti-gun fundamental civil rights oppressors?

I think we need to bring back the word traitor (and enforcement of Article III, Section 3). Gravo sounds too Italian to me.

Always italicize it to differentiate it. Latin words and terms are typically in italics. Once it starts catching on, it will become itegrated into youy stardard lexicon.

I must formally apologize for my spelling fax paus while posting from my Android based smart phone's tiny keyboard. Sorry for the offense.

Always on the lookout for the next "in case of kasos, consider open carring"...

There's already plenty of words. *******, ****head, ****er, bastard, etc etc. Those are some of the words I use, anyway.

Yeah, you need a word that implies something more objectionable like bacterial or fecal related which connotes more accurately the nature of the subject. Gravo sounds to much like Grappa (and that's Greek) to me. And I know Italian and Grappa!

I usually refer to them as sociopaths, as they clearly lack restraint of conscience and humanity for what they inflict upon others. They are morally and psychologically indistinguishable from serial killers.

The word doesn't convey the gravity of the situation.

Doesn't work as a noun.

Hey, there's nothing wrong with nouning a verb. Just don't verb any nouns, though. Verbing nouns wierds language.

I wish that 'bigot' wasn't already taken.

Have you considered "moron"?

Them being moronic is just an act. You don't get into positions of power with a chimpanzee's IQ. You do, however, set up your future trial defense by acting like one.

Since most anti-second amendment bills come from the left side of the aisle, have you considered using the term democrat?

I find that the "F" word is useful in many situations. Noun, verb, adverb, etc.

But when I want to go Italian on them, I refer to them as Fascisti.
