Quick: Think about any recent gun-control article or statement written by or about someone who favors the gun-control argument. Have you noticed anything? NRA News contributor Colion Noir has: the term “gun control” is being replaced by “gun safety.” And he’s none too happy about it.
“Unless they changed the gun safety rules, which are pretty much the Bible of the gun world – so I’m pretty sure they’re still the same – I don’t see how any of the proposed measures by anti-gunners will aid in the safety of gun use,” Noir says of the “gun safety placebo” in his latest video after recapping the four foundational rules of gun safety.
“Think about it, what changed?” he adds. “When they were calling it gun control, they wanted universal background checks, an assault weapons ban, high capacity magazine ban, round limitations, and every other useless measure that would do nothing to stop criminals. Now they’re calling it gun safety like that somehow changed their intent, but nothing has changed. They still want the same things, and they’re still going to get the same ineffective results.”
“Their idea of gun safety is: ‘Here, give us all the guns and we will keep you safe because you can’t be trusted with an AR or a gun that has more than two rounds,’” Noir says near the end. “We already said no to these options. Try something else.”
“For them to think that all they have to do is change the name of the same nonsense laws simply means they don’t respect us, the same way they don’t respect our Second Amendment right,” he concludes.
