Immediately following any tragedy involving gun violence, there is almost always a renewed push by the left to restrict the Second Amendment rights of the citizenry.  Now, as honesty would work against them (and is a foreign concept to the movers and shakers on the left anyways) rights-restricting gun legislation and the propaganda used to ease it’s way has to be carefully worded.   Don’t say you want to confiscate weapons from law abiding citizens, say that we need to get guns off the street so we can all feel safer.  Don’t say that those in power should decide who can and cannot exercise their basic and Constitutionally protected rights, say that licenses and permits are necessary to make sure ‘only the right people’ have access to guns (again, don’t worry what qualifies one as the “right” sort, that’s none of your concern).
