And shootings. This is from a couple years ago, but still valid.
Multiple people have pointed out to me over my years that if someone is using language designed to create a strong emotional response from you, they're not doing so in order to help you or protect you. They're doing so because by creating a strong emotional response they can weaken your rational thought and make it easier to manipulate you.
All of the running around right now shrieking and screaming about guns is designed to trigger that emotional response. Thankfully, Americans don't seem to be falling for it. That won't stop the Left from trying to strip your rights away.
