Quote of the Day — Derek Hunter (Oct. 8, 2015)

From his piece, "Words Matter, Or At Least They Used To (And Need To Again)":
Word choice may not seem like much, but it matters. Subtle manipulation is still manipulation. […] Marriage used to have an unambiguous meaning, as did racist. Not anymore.
He makes a lot of sense, and based on this, henceforth I will not be using the word "shooter" to reference any scumbag seeking postmortem fame with the deaths of others. These individuals will instead be referred to properly as "killers", "murderers", or other appropriate terms, and the modifier "mass" will be added as circumstances warrant.

This being a gun blog, it's likely that most of our readers can rightfully be described as "shooters", and I do not desire to conflate our good readers with the murderous scum of the earth. Let the "Progressives" fall over themselves doing that; I'll have no part in it.

Stay safe.

  1. Thanks for sharing your ideas. You have correctly explained the term killers. The guns are supposed to be the means of safety and self defense. They are not supposed to be used to kill others for your own self-centered attitude. They must be used in a case when your life or your loved one's life is in danger . All the acts of a person should only be according to the prevailing law of any nation. To know more about guns you may visit the Firearm Training Center Boston.
