Don't use "high capacity magazine". Use standard capacity, and restricted capacity.

Don't use "assault rifle/weapon". Use Modern Sporting Rifle.

If you let the Liberal/Leftist/Progressives define the terms you've already lost.

There was a letter to the editor in our paper the other day. The hysterical woman was saying that no one needs an "assault rifle" as they are ONLY designed to kill as many people as possible as quickly as possible. But she wasn't coming after grandpa's hunting rifle.

Well....I'm a grandpa and I hunt with an AR-10 or an AR-15.....you know those things designed to kill as many people as possible as quickly as possible.

I'm sure she thinks that NO ONE hunts with an "assault rifle" or target shoots with one. Well she's probably right on the first point as I don't think it's legal to hunt with a select fire weapon in any state. But she wouldn't be able to tell the difference between a M-16 or an AR-15 if you paid her to. They are both black and scary.

Any way, the AR-15 is not an assault rifle. Just because the LLP crowd calls it one doesn't make it one. They can call an elephant a mouse but it's still an elephant to anyone with a brain.

I'm sure most of us do, but we simply can't compete with the 24/7/365 bombardment the public gets from the leftist media. They control the narrative because they control the airwaves.

Armalite rifle copy

Really throws them for a loop.

One anti that I know was convinced that AR meant assault rifle.

They day I'm finally lucky and win the lotto, I'll buy an original STG-44, then I'll officially own an 'assault rifle'. Until that time, I only own rifles, regular, run of the mill rifles. I hate........hate.... the term 'modern sporting rifle'! What the hell does that mean anyway? A Mini-14 or a Uberti '73 clone? It's switching to 'sensitive' terminology so as not to offend idiots, which is not something I care to do..... not offend idiots, that is. It's a stupid term, meant to coddle stupid people. We need to stop using it. When some fool defaults to 'assault rifle', the correct retort should be: "It's just a rifle, you idiot!"

Most of the time I avoid even using the word "Gun". Pistol, rifle and firearm are plenty descriptive enough and less likely to blow gaskets. I use "magazines" or just "Mags", regardless of capacity. My newest rifle I do no associate with ARs even though it is commonly referred to as an AR10. It's not. It's a DPMS. And people who want to argue those terms clearly have no clue what they are talking about.

Most importantly, I avoid discussing them in public or on open forums an anti-gunner may wander into. Don't even try to argue with them. They are NOT going to listen. They are NOT going to change their minds. And ALL they REALLY want to do is get you riled up and angry because if you're getting angry, that prove you're wrong and they win.

I'm always reminded of the Texas Aggie Daffynition of Political Correctness.

"Political Correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical, liberal minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a lump of feces by the clean end."

I don't allow people to use flawed definitions.

A conversation with a Control-Leftist was "I don't see why anyone needs an Assault Rifle." So I asked, what is your definition of an Assault Rifle.
The answer was "A rifle that's used by the military and civilians don't need them." So I asked which rifles that are readily available fit that definition.
The answer was "AR's and AK's". To which I replied that none of those available have ever been fielded by a Military Force anywhere in the world.
I then asked "What about a Springfield Bolt Action Rifle in .30-06? Is that an assault rifle?" Their answer was "No, Bolt Action Rifles aren't Assault Rifles" and ".30-06 is just a deer hunting caliber and isn't used to kill people.
To which I pointed out that the Springfield Bolt Action Rifle in .30-06 was in use by the U.S. Army, Marines and Navy for about 50 years in multiple wars including WW1 and WW2, that the Springfield Bolt Action Rifle, M1 Garand Rifle, M1917 Machine Gun, M1918 BAR, and M1919 Machine Gun all fired the .30-06 Caliber Cartridge.
I was told I was being "Obtuse".

I pointed out I was being Factual and that they were the ones being Obtuse by definition. """annoyingly insensitive or slow to understand.""" (and to add """Obtuse, which comes to us from the Latin word obtusus, meaning "dull" or "blunt," can describe an angle that is not acute or a person who is mentally "dull" or slow of mind. The word has also developed a somewhat controversial sense of "hard to comprehend," probably as a result of confusion with abstruse.""") and that Freedom was obviously an abstruse concept for them.

I got a very blank look ( they didn't know what abstruse meant) and was told I didn't know what I was talking about.

I commented that if they wanted to know who didn't know what they were talking about, they only had to look in a mirror.

For some reason, that particular relative no longer speaks to me.

Fine by me.

They honestly think they are in control of things, that their outlook is correct.
One, just one bump in the road and their world implodes. They curl up in a ball and refuse to engage. Crying is their new normal. More anxiety meds please.......

I think the term "Modern Sporting Rifle" is silly. It's just more spin & wordplay in response to other, opposing spin & wordplay. It's just further gamesmanship in an absurd mudfight of banter & terminology.

The 2A was designed to allow us to defend ourselves from tyranny and/or invasion. Not to hunt bunnies. I'm not going to softball that reality to sway the unknowledgeable.

My bedside revolver is a BURGLAR GUN. I'm not going to call it a Home Security Device to downplay it's role to the tofu-eaters.

Agree 100%. I always tell people that the Second Amendment isn't about hunting, and it isn't about being able to protect yourself from criminals. It's about being able to overthrow a tyrannical government. Our Founding Fathers knew that, because they had just done it. That's why they wrote the Second Amendment.

That’s exactly how it’s explained and written. Democrats think they can reinterpret continuously until the end of time.
Here’s one for you to swallow. A Jewish friend got mad at me online because I have an AR. Imagine that out of all people you’d think they would know better.

What I've found is that Jews in the U.S. are much more "Liberal" than they are "Jewish". A Jewish friend of mine living in NYC can't explain why Jews in the U.S. vote Democrat against their best interests and the interests of Israel.

I've had that same conversation with many Jewish people in the past. There seems to be this disconnect between the past and now. One of them was even the campaign director for the state I lived in at the time. When I questioned her about it later on she just looked befuddled and didn't have an answer.

This one would take a lot to unpack. Being the oldest surviving ethnic/religious group in the western world comes with baggage.

Pretty sad that a liberal/dummocrat/socialist/douchebag wouldn't even make for a decent zombie meal. Brainless is as brainless can't?

So many people think the 2nd Amendment was added to protect our hunting rights, not to defend ourselves and our families from the bad guys, including an oppressive government.
