I see she’s adopted the rebranding “gun safety.” “Gun safety” has traditionally meant handling your guns safely, but now it’s supposed to mean what has more commonly been called “gun control.”

“Safety” sounds nicer than “control.” “Control” is what a repressive state does to a cowed citizenry and what sexist men want to do to women. It’s what puts the freak in control freaks. But “safety” feels like a caring mother, a loving partner, a beneficent government.

Via Althouse: Is Hillary Clinton sorry she reacted to the San Bernardino massacre with a call for more gun control?
