The comment of the day comes from trainer John Farnam of Defense Training International. John is well known for his “quips”. In today’s “quip”, John is discussing the language our opponents use like “governmental interest” and “public safety” and how the police “need” semi-automatic firearms with standard capacity magazines while we don’t.
Regarding semi-auto M4 carbines, John has this to say:
In a final act of hypocrisy, M4s issued to state police are always
called “Patrol Carbines” Those exact, same M4s, when owned by private
citizens, are always called “assault weapons.”
I think that captures the essence of the argument about the perversion of language by our opponents.
