It is sad for me to hear many 2nd Amendment advocates play the game of the mainstream media and politicians who use inaccurate phrases, especially the most prolific one:
We repeat what they say which reinforces ‘their language’.
Why don’t we use true and correct language to describe something to which the anti-gun people are so ignorant of? Let’s teach them basic common sense grammar with contextual, clear descriptions.
ASSAULT: An act of any type in order to inflict harm, whether physically (simple or felonious) or verbally (libel, slander) onto another person with evil intent.
WEAPON: Any object or word whatsoever… whether a person’s hand, foot, pencil, automobile, spoon, baseball bat, kitchen iron skillet, golf club, firearm, verbal words, telephone, written words, a tree branch, antifreeze, acid, hot grease, and the list is endless.
Let’s stop playing and using ‘their’ words and use proper, clear, concise and descriptive words. The conservative media, gun-rights organizations, and freedom loving citizens have to help take the lead in this effort. After all, every word of the Constitution was chosen intentionally for a reason. They were not frivilous in their effort…it cost many of them their own blood.
If you repeat a lie long enough and often enough…it becomes the truth to the listener.
Let’s please stop using their ambiguous phrases. We play into their lie every day.
After thought: Man does not create ‘law’, he only discovers it. Law is God created and revealed. He is the Supreme Law-Giver, Judge and Executor. The sooner we seek to understand this the better we’ll be…that’s why ‘rights’ only come from God. If man grants anything, it’s only a ‘privilege’ under his control (or so he thinks). God is still in control. We, as a nation, have a hard lesson to learn.
