I have a long article on this coming but I just haven’t had time to get it finished. I hate it but I have four long articles in progress for GFZ right now and never seem to have time to finish any of them
We watch as the alarmist create fake words and phrases to try and touch something at an emotional level. I remember reading about how scientist were looking at ways of spreading pure carbon over the ice caps in order to combat “global cooling” which was going to kill us all in the next 10 years as the glaciers all extended south.
10 years later the same scientist were screaming that we were all going to die in 10 years if we didn’t stop “global warming”.
Today the term is “climate change” and in some cases the same scientists are pushing this new “we’re all going to die” alarm.
The gun rights infringers use the same methods. They can’t sell the ban they want so they hide it in scary words.
Grandpas bolt action deer rifle with a 5 power scope becomes a “sniper rifle.”
A semi-automatic with a pistol grip and box magazine becomes an “assault rifle” which becomes an “assault weapon” which is now a “military-style assault weapon”.
In some places you hear this as “military-style semi-automatic weapon”.
The adjectives just get layered on until you can no longer see the actual thing.
From patch.com reporting on State Senator Steve Santarsiero (D-10) latest emotional plea.
“It’s time that we stand up with a single voice and say, enough. No one needs to have a military-style assault weapon. They just don’t,” said Santarsiero, who was joined at a press conference in Lower Makefield by political, religious, community and local school leaders from throughout Central and Lower Bucks County.
“The time has come for us to take a stand and make this a reality. This is about protecting each other. This is about protecting our loved ones. This is about protecting our community. And above all, this is about protecting the kids,” said Santarsiero.
In direct violation of the Constitution.
Article I, Section 21 of the Pennsylvania State Constitution states: “The right of the citizens to bear arms in defense of themselves and the State shall not be questioned.”
