Orwell Called and Says He Had You in Mind When He Wrote His Books

From Talking Points Memo. (NO LINK- are you kidding?)

Anyone who’s written the words “gun control” since the push for gun violence prevention began in the wake of the Newtown shooting has received the emails. It’s not called “gun control” anymore, proponents of new and more stringent regulations on firearms write. Start calling it “gun safety.”

“I could see a case for changing it. ‘Gun control’ has kind of a negative connotation. It almost implies taking something away, you know?” said Rich Robinson, spokesperson for the Advancement Project. “I think ‘gun safety’ makes good sense because ultimately that’s the goal right? It’s gun safety.”


Advancement Project. That almost implies that the left is a positive presence.

    I thought gun control was using both hands, and not holding it ‘gangsta style’.
