    "gun control" is a phrase that has been demonized.

    but I have heard people talk about "gun safety" with some success.

    and someone here at dK often uses the term "gun responsibility" which has too many syllables when spoken but reads very well in print.

    "gun regulation" has the advantage of referencing the well-regulated word in the 2d Amendment.

    we might need to let go of the term "gun control" and come up with a better descriptor that Joe and Jane Averagevoter will relate to more easily

    Politics is like driving. To go backward put it in R. To go forward put it in D.
    Drop by The Grieving Room on Monday nights for support in dealing with grief.
