The use of labels to shape culture away from fact based narratives…….and toward emotion based falsehoods.
With regard to the shooting and the weapon in Monterey Park……I’d already read multiple accounts of sock puppets stating that the firearm was capable of “rapid-fire” (!!!!!!).
This is what happens when information (“news”) is passed to the public sans facts. This firearm, like every other semi-automatic firearm, fires one round for each pull of the trigger. This, other than minor adjustments of trigger weight, no semi-automatic is capable of what they refer to as “rapid-fire”. Which of course, they’re trying to equate these extremely common firearms with “machine guns” to the gullible public.
This morning however, they’ve amped it up a notch. In a press conference aired this morning on CNN, I was treated to a law enforcement speaker calling the firearm in question an “assault pistol”. He even specified “not an ‘assault rifle’, but an “assault pistol”.
They’ll be coming after our handguns now, without a doubt. Stay frosty.
