    Thumbs up Politically Corrected.....Very good reminder!

    Certain words hurt you when you're talking about your rights.
    People who would deny your rights have done a good job of manipulating the language so far.

    Without even realizing it, you're probably using terms that actually help the people who want to disarm you.

    To preserve, protect and defend your rights in this critical debate, you
    need effective word choices.

    WHEN THEY SAY
    Guns cause crime
    YOU SAY
    Guns stop crime
    ====================================
    WHEN THEY SAY
    Guns are too dangerous to own
    YOU SAY
    Then you should take a safety class
    ====================================
    WHEN THEY SAY
    Guns are too dangerous to own

    Then don't trust the boys and girls in
    the military and police with them
    ====================================

    ====================================
    WHEN THEY SAY:
    Why would anyone want to own a gun?
    YOU SAY:
    You're kidding, right? You mean you really don't know?
    Well, why do you think the police have guns?
    ===================================
    WHEN THEY SAY
    We're not really against people having guns
    YOU SAY
    What sort of guns do you think
    people should have, and why
    ===================================
    WHEN THEY SAY
    Do you really have a gun?
    YOU SAY
    Of course, don't you?

    Then just give it a rest and watch where it goes. You'll hear their
    litany, replete with flaws. Don't rebut, seize the moment, listen hard
    and learn -- then just raise an eyebrow and think, "How 'bout that.
    Feller doesn't even own a gun. It takes all kinds." Then talk about
    something else. And boy, does the disjoint hang in their craw.
