Enough

I’ve had it.  I had hoped it was just an anomaly the first time.  But it seems like every time I get on the internet, there has been another one, and one more is too many.  Now, it is time for us to accept some reasonable restrictions, and enact some commonsense reforms.

And don’t go waving the Bill of Rights in my face.  The farsighted Founders of our great nation never envisioned atrocities like this, and I am sick and tired of it.  I do not believe for a moment that the eloquent, educated men who wrote our Constitution ever intended the First Amendment to protect the use of the words “booger hook” and “bang switch”.

Just stop it.

It sounded sort of clever the first time I heard it a couple of decades ago, for about two minutes.  But I’m pretty sure that using playground words instead of professional and correct terminology doesn’t really help make the case that we in the gun community take ourselves or our hardware seriously.  It’s time to grow up, and speak like adults.  So next time you need to show what a savvy gun person you are and lecture about how not to shoot yourself, remember…

This is a finger.

 

This is a trigger.

 

Use your words…
