Good grief. The Left is good at redefining words, and phrases. When it comes to guns, and gun control, the Left throws the term semi-automatic around constantly. They also invented the term “assault weapon”. They do this to create, in the minds of the public, images. Images of machine guns, spewing hundreds or rounds in seconds. these images frighten people. Then the Left comes along and says “Look what the NRA supports! They support everyone owning these semi-automatic weapons”. And meaningful debate on the topic is therefore largely destroyed, and replaced with hyperbole and emotional arguments, which benefits the Left. This video illustrates how ignorant the media is on the terms the Left has redefined
Fully automatic weapons (machine guns) have been illegal for 78 years now. Semi-automatic guns accurately describes most of the guns in this nation. You pull the trigger, the gun fires a round, and chambers the next round, you pull the trigger, the weapon fires again, and so on. It is sad that most Americans get suckered in by the misleading rhetoric of the Left, and even sadder that newsmen like Schieffer do not bother to educate themselves on the topic. This is yet another clear example of why the Left pushes for government-run schools, and mandatory Kindergarten, and preaches that everyone has a “right” to a college education. they want to indoctrinate as many Americans as possible. And they want to teach kids NOT to think, but to emote. they want to teach kids NOT to be pro-active, but to be reactive. The less intelligent the populace, the easier it is for the Left to win elections, and ideological debates.
