“Gun Safety” is the New, & Deliberately Deceptive, Code-Word

Ft Collins, CO –-(Ammoland.com)- “During the Bosnian War (1992-1995), when you didn’t own guns, you were literally dead. Many learned that painful lesson, the hard way.” ~ From a student and veteran of fighting in Bosnia

“Gun Safety” is the new, and deliberately deceptive, code-word for the forced elimination of the private ownership of guns in America.

Democrat/socialists, instead of frankly talking about outright gun confiscation, which represents their real agenda, now dishonestly camouflage their true intent with misleading babble about “gun safety.”

To them, the only “good” gun is a sterile gun. Socialists insist that all privately-owned guns be “perfectly safe,” all the time, because the only “legitimate use” for guns is recreation (and “recreation” is never critically important).

The ‘serious use” of guns, they never talk about.

Many in the American gun-owning community have gullibly, foolishly bought-into this “safe gun” prevarication.

Yet, as Jeff Cooper reminded us, and we need to continually remind each other, guns that are “perfectly safe” are by definition, “perfectly useless.”

Guns are indeed integral to an endless variety of non-serious, recreational activities. Each brags of a veritable army of enthusiastic devotees, and one challenging the “legitimacy” of any one of their quaint hobbies will be in for a deluge of acid, self-righteous refutation.

Understood!

And, the preservation of our Second Amendment surely depends upon their continued status as American gun-owners and “gun-enthusiasts,” regardless of the reason.

The real danger is that American gun-owners and assorted gun-enthusiasts will be persuaded that guns they keep must be sterile/inaccessible until the moment their planned use is at hand.

When socialists can thus describe your guns as otherwise“useless,” taking them from you becomes progressively easier for them to justify. After all, your sterile guns are no more critical to your well-being than is a tennis racket or a golf club.

Operators know and understand that “safety,” like “fairness,” is a relative term.

The more “safe” a gun is, the less “ready.” The more “ready,” the less “safe.” Operators continually endeavor to find a reasonable compromise, rather than retreat to one extreme or another.

Legitimate self-defense, via gunfire when necessary, is at the heart of our Second Amendment.

Defense of oneself, one’s family, and one’s nation.

Since we can’t predict when lethal threats will suddenly appear, a reasonable state of “readiness” of our guns is, in fact, critical to our well-being and thus cannot be casually regulated out of existence, as socialists sincerely want to do.

Our Second Amendment was not carefully, courageously included in our Bill of Rights so that future generations of Americans could occasionally participate in quaint pistol matches, or go duck hunting.

We Americans must never forget the real reason for our Second Amendment, nor for the Bill of Rights in total.

We must jealously protect it forever, from all enemies, and there are plenty of them.

    Their MO has, for years, incorporated the strategy of language hijacking. “Assault weapon” comes to mind.

    It can be fun to play with their pseudo-language though.

    If one looks around at the “gun safety” meetings and does not see a representative from the world’s oldest and largest gun safety organization at the table, it’s time to walk away. Without the NRA there the whole things is a whitewash, and not worth my time to do anything other than oppose whatever comes from the meeting.

    Anything labeled as “safety” must be a good thing in the politically correct society we dwell within. If you can’t stop, control or restrict something using facts, logic and truth, then you can always fall back on claiming it’s a safety or health concern. That’s why we have things like toilets seats mandated and designed by bureaucrats with openings in the front that are totally dysfunctional and “smog” devices on vehicles that only serve to adversely affect vehicle performance all provided by government safety officials (OSHA & EPA) to keep us safe from ourselves by enacting more and more ridiculous… Read more »

    Gun safety means you know how to load and unload your weapon safely, carry it safely and only hit what your are shooting at.

    Your ahole neighbors who needed a job (your “government”) need to be compelled [bodily] to admit that they cannot protect anyone on an individual level (not even themselves, but especially the rest of us). Therefore their b.s. attempts to disarm you must be for some other nefarious reason, and that reason is that they cannot do their communistic and satanic tyranny with impunity while you can still vote “NO !” capitally. The 2nd Paragraph of the Declaration of Independence states no less than 2 x in its flesh-language, that you should chuck such aholes and install “new guards” for your… Read more »

    The new agenda for humanity requires that no one will have the capacity to fight back. It has been said: “Our Task of creating a Socialist America can only succeed when those who would resist us have been totally disarmed.” No other explanation is possible.

    One in the Army, Navy, Marines (and even the Air Force!) will never refer to a rifle or pistol as a “gun.” A GUN is an artillery piece. In the Air Force, it is a 20mm or 30mm cannon (usually Gatling Gun style) mounted to or in an aircraft. People firing rifles at a military burial are NOT giving a “21 gun salute.” It is a rifle salute. 21 gun salute? You’ll see one when you look at pictures of the field pieces being fired for President Kennedy.

    “Gun Safety” another code word for “Gun Control”, which is nothing more than People Control right out of the Communist play book. A recommended read is the TheNakedCommunist_byWCleonSkousen published 1958. I refer you to page 401″ Current Communist Goals”, 41 are stated, many of the goals have been accomplished, a few do not hold true, considering 61 years have passed. Again, the basic foundations were set in motion 6 decades ago, many of which still ring true today… Socialism>Communism>Gun Control=Disarmament=Extermination… The Impoverished Deadly Agenda…As history has proven…. “Seemingly Utopian pacifists are free to profess their love of a weapon-free world,… Read more »

    IMOA “Common Sense Gun Safety” is code to ban, restrict and ultimately confiscate any and all firearms from law abiding citizens.

    If it just saves one life – what, wait, does that apply to banning abortions as well, if it just saves one life? Gun Safety is a false safety chilling Liberty. Even President Trump confused the issue when stating take the guns first, due process second! Think about that for a minute – swear or affirm an Oath to uphold the Constitution and then openly advocate violation of same. I would like to have hard ball questions to him about this comment and his support of the bump stock ban which makes illegal what was legal commerce and takes property… Read more »

    As they are now grouping all types of guns together I have to look at it this way ( Democrats, communism, socialist, Nazi ,) I guess we have to group things together to try and make people understand!! These are the groups of people who ether have or want you to not have guns! Just look into history and see how well that worked out !!! There’s millions of people who weren’t able to defend themselves and their families!! Hmmm guess it didn’t work out to well when unarmed !!

    Gun Safety Should Be About Not Shooting Yourself In The Foot When Using Your Firearm And Not About Having Your Weapon Locked Up And Getting Killed Because You Can’t Access It When It Is Needed.

    Just rebranding to make the sale of gun control more acceptable. Works for the weak minded fools that subscribe to the theory that all guns are bad and no one should own one, except of course the gov’t which will use them to confiscate them from us.

    The Left can refer to gun control by any other name than a rose and all of it remains UnConstitutional.

    You only need to look at what happened here in Australia and now happening in new Zealand to get a good idea as to the dirty tactics of politicians when it comes to gun bans, take it from an Australian, once they start…… It never ends. Open ended definitions and scare tactics of gun control activists, closed doors on gun reform conversation, slowly claim more and more. Stay strong America it’s all a lie.

    Demonrats call it “gun safety”; safe for tyrants, safe for criminals, safe for all the ne’er-do-wells but not safe for We The People.

    Any gun is perfectly safe if it is left alone, just like any tool is useless until it is picked up. Then, every tool has a purpose that depends upon the opposing thumb.

    Any use of any term, or phrase, including the word “gun” is an intentional communist misdirect to draw attention from the actual source problems. Crime control. Democrat communist gun confiscation. Protection of the communist democrat voter base. And covering up democrat communist vote buying scams.

    In the 1953 movie “Shane” ALAN Ladd tells Marion “a gun is a tool no different then an axe or a shovel, it is as good or bad as the person using it.”
    This is what people here in the USA have forgotten or don’t care about. People are the problem they have given up on morals and honor and respect of others. The simple ten commandments. People have let the devil whisper to us and have fell for his lies lock , stock and barrel. This country will fall like Sodom and Gamora destroyed by their own actions.

    @ James I have to agree with you about this country being close to the Sodom and Gomorrah situation. History has a great lesson and it will repeat itself. The democrats are removing anything that references God from anything they can because they do not want a higher power than they are. How wrong they are, because no matter how strong they think they are there is always someone stronger. It remains to be seen if God will find it worthwhile to save this country or to let it destroy itself. Every patriot needs to stay vigil and not be… Read more »

    Another line I like in “Shane” , changing a word: ” damn anti-American liar”. That is whom we are dealing with. When our civil war’s half time is over there will be a team change. I do not habitually pick on Yankees that much or as often any more. That is why the word change.
