Default Gun Control Clichéd Phrases

Here's some hackneyed anti phrases, and my snide comments:

1) "high-powered rifle" (just about all rifles are high power)

2) "weapon of war" (versus what, a "weapon of peace?")

3) "sensible gun control" (there are already 700 gun control laws on the books in California)

4) "common-sense gun control" (who defines "common-sense?")

5) "sniper rifle" (pretty much any rifle with a scope)

6) "assault rifle" (any rifle that's not a sniper rifle)

7) "assault weapon" (anything that looks scary)

8) "extremist gun lobby" (anyone that disagrees with Brady)

9) "assault pistol" (any pistol that's used in an assault)

p.s. - I think I found where Alison Merrilees got her "spray from the hip without reloading" quote:

http://www.bradycampaign.org/facts/faqs/?page=awb

"Q: What is the difference between semi-automatic hunting rifles and semi-automatic assault weapons?

A: Sporting rifles and assault weapons are two distinct classes of firearms. While semi-automatic hunting rifles are designed to be fired from the shoulder and depend upon the accuracy of a precisely aimed projectile, semi-automatic assault weapons are designed to maximize lethal effects through a rapid rate of fire. Assault weapons are designed to be spray-fired from the hip, and because of their design, a shooter can maintain control of the weapon even while firing many rounds in rapid succession.

Opponents of the ban argue that such weapons only "look scary." However, because they were designed for military purposes, assault weapons are equipped with combat hardware, such as silencers, folding stocks and bayonets, which are not found on sporting guns. Assault weapons are also designed for rapid-fire and many come equipped with large ammunition magazines allowing 50 more bullets to be fired without reloading. So there is a good reason why these features on high-powered weapons should frighten the public.

Assault weapons are commonly equipped with some or all of the following combat features:

* A large-capacity ammunition magazine, enabling the shooter to continuously fire dozens of rounds without reloading. Standard hunting rifles are usually equipped with no more than 3 or 4-shot magazines.
* A folding stock on a rifle or shotgun, which sacrifices accuracy for concealability and for mobility in close combat.
* A pistol grip on a rifle or shotgun, which facilitates firing from the hip, allowing the shooter to spray-fire the weapon. A pistol grip also helps the shooter stabilize the firearm during rapid fire and makes it easier to shoot assault rifles one-handed.
* A barrel shroud, which is designed to cool the barrel so the firearm can shoot many rounds in rapid succession without overheating. It also allows the shooter to grasp the barrel area to stabilize the weapon, without incurring serious burns, during rapid fire.
* A threaded barrel designed to accommodate a flash suppressor, which serves no useful sporting purpose. The flash suppressor allows the shooter to remain concealed when shooting at night, an advantage in combat but unnecessary for hunting or sporting purposes. In addition, the flash suppressor is useful for providing stability during rapid fire, helping the shooter maintain control of the firearm.
* A threaded barrel designed to accommodate a silencer, which is useful to assassins but clearly has no purpose for sportsmen. Silencers are illegal so there is no legitimate purpose for making it possible to put a silencer on a weapon.
* A barrel mount designed to accommodate a bayonet, which obviously serves no sporting purpose."

"automatic weapon" - any rifle that has a detachable magazine visible.

I got to hear a nice phrase today.

Apparently criminals who die as a result of the victim having a weapon are "collateral damage" which is a negative result of civilian firearm ownership.

Cop killer bullets

Military-style



"In addition, the flash suppressor is useful for providing stability during rapid fire, helping the shooter maintain control of the firearm."

Is it any surprise that the DOJ can't distinguish between a compensator/muzzle brake and a flash suppressor?

Silencers are not illegal! Just highly regulated. I believe 31 states allow private ownership of silencers.

And preferred in an environment where noise is an issue. However, I'm sure we've all been to a range where it’s necessary to coax non-domestic animals and birds off the range so firing can proceed. I guess the critters just get used to a noisy environment.

Actually, criminals who die as a result of the victim having a weapon are usually called VICTIMS (according to most media)...

"Saturday Night Special" This phrase is discriminatory because it leaves out people who might want to shoot the rest of the week?

"hi capacity magazine", which is anything with more than 5 rounds now to them

Someday in CA we will be reduced to one round magazines. And everybody on Calguns.net will be ranting and raving about how they just bought five Bushmaster 1/30 mags and a mag coupler to be really bad ***, just like people in Europe think they are really bad *** because they have an airsoft M-16.
