What’s in a name?

Used to be assault weapons. If the police used them, they were patrol rifles. And now, reader F-Stop emails this pic:


Now, they are police style rifles.

    […] Uncle has the picture from CNN’s front page, when they still had it up.  See it all here. This entry was posted on Monday, October 8th, 2007 […]

    “Police-style rifles” suddenly revert to “assault weapons” when they are in the hands of “civilians” as law enforcement and official types like to call their CITIZEN employers.

    Damn the propaganda is thick!!!

  4. HardCorps Says:

    Just think how hard those writers had to think to come up with that phrase – what was going on in their mind. Something like, “well we can’t call it an assault rifle or a machine gun be an ‘only one’ was using it…what about a rifle of justice?”

    Smart guns?

    No bias here. Just descriptive wording. This is how you lose your freedom, one word at a time.

    […] and Uncle point out that when a deranged police officer goes on a rampage, it’s a police-style rifle, […]

    Well, you know, these “police-style rifles” aren’t subject to the gun laws so therefore the sue of a non-threatening term. Had a mere “civilian” done this dastardly deed with the SAME rifle, then there would’ve been an emotional political-media frenzy that the “assault weapon” caused the civilian crime and thus more calls for banning them. But the “police-style rifles” will be protected.

    Next, they are “user-friendly rifles”. It does what the user wishes.

  10. Ron W Says:

    I like that McZombie. I would definitely say that my Russian AK, self-defense rifle is “user-friendly”.

    But the political-media estabnlishment of officialdom would only use such a term as long as they are in the hands of the police-state apparatus, but not in the hands of us, citizens.

    User Friendly…… does that make it “non-user unfriendly”? Seems this holds true with the anti-gun loons!

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
