Article – Sen. Chuck Schumer Says the NRA Is an Extreme ‘Fringe Group’

This isn’t surprising coming from the mouth of career weasel Chuck Schumer. What is surprising is this sentence:

He continued: “They are a very extreme group.  They don’t even represent average gun holders.”

Not gun owners, but gun holders. As in the holder of something that is not owned by them, but rather ‘owned’ (or ‘granted’) by the state…the state is just letting you hold it.

Orwell taught us that control of the language is essential to advance political goals. For example, they don’t want gun control..they just want reasonable gun control. Implying, of course, that if you oppose it youre being unreasonable. Who could be against something reasonable?

It’s a culture war, folks. No doubt about it. ‘Ol Chuckie just happen to make a grammatical slip that plainly shows how he views gun ownership: as a a custodianship of firearms to be revoked at any time by the state..because you don’t own them, you  just hold them.
