When it comes to the liberal war on guns, one of the most powerful weapons of the dastardly democrats is language.

Of course, the most blatant and bludgeoning example of lefty linguistics comes to us from the world of “assault rifles”, or, as we on the inside call them:  “Rifles”.  What the left is trying to convey is that these weapons can only be used for assault, the same way that a salad fork can only be used to eat salad.

The absurdity is palpable.

On the other end of the spectrum, the left uses omission in their wordplay as well.  For example, in the case of a rather large grant in New Hampshire, the language of the deal states that the funds will be used to promote an “anti-gun” message to the community.

Trending: BREAKING: Kavanaugh Accuser May NOT Show Up to Thursday Hearing (Details)

Republican lawmakers would like to add a word.

For more than a month, a $200,000 federal Project Safe Neighborhoods grant has been held up by Republicans on the Executive Council. They said their concern is about gun rights and language in the grant application that says the money will help spread “the anti-gun message to the community.” 

 “‘This grant, I think it’s important to point out, was put out by the previous administration,’ said Councilor David Wheeler, R-Milford. ‘It wasn’t this attorney General. It was the previous one who worked with this grant.’

“Manchester Chief Nick Willard appeared before the council Wednesday to quell fears over treading on 2nd Amendment rights, saying that grant writers will be more careful with their language in the future.

“‘Instead of just referring to a gun, because that could be interpreted as lawful or illegal, we need to say “crime gun,”‘ Willard said.

“Willard and Councilor Chris Pappas, D-Manchester, said the funding is badly needed, and the grant targets criminals and gang activity, not law-abiding gun owners.”

This important distinction could very well be the difference between how firearms are perceived by the younger members of the community, and adversely equate guns with danger in their impressionable minds.

Children, now more than ever, need positive firearms reinforcement when they are ready for it.  Responsible gun ownership is a powerful tool for American families, for reasons both obvious and obscure.  Without a next generation of Second Amendment enthusiasts, the democrats could very easily win the war of words on Capitol Hill instead.
