Why do Progressives call it “gun violence” and not “gun crime”?

Democrat Bullies

Given what has (allegedly) happened to Susan Olsen again, a couple of quick thoughts. First, there ARE no “common sense” regulations – that is only a cover phrase for the continued civilian disarmament movement by the Progressives / Socialists. It is simply about control – they seem to have this belief that it is their God-given “right” (if and when they actually believe in God – after all, back in 2012 at their Convention, they booed God) to boss other people around.  That’s it – the Bossy Party!

Second, the phrase “gun violence” is just a ploy; if they were really serious about people getting killed, they’d still call it “gun crime“.  Crime is something for which you can punish a single guilty person for but not until the crime has been committed.  “Gun violence”, however, is the linguistic shield in which the Democrats believe they can punish EVERYONE before a crime has ever been committed. They do believe that if ONE person “sins”, all people in that group have sinned – and must suffer the consequences.  After all, Obama made it clear:

…that my individual salvation is not going to come about without a collective salvation for the country. Unfortunately, I think that recognition requires that we make sacrifices and this country has not always been willing to make the sacrifices that are necessary to bring about a new day and a new age.”

And “collective salvation” requires that a collective sin /guiltiness be present. And the Bossy Party has decided that they are the High Priests, like the Pharisees and Saducces of old, that are the only intercessors between the common man and God.  Wait – since they don’t believe in God (and study after study has shown they are much more likely than the Right to be non-religious on a theological basis), and they are declaring others to be sinful, are they wrapping themselves up as both priests and their own God(s)?

Face it – with all of the anti-gun bills they’ve passed this year, they are calling ANYONE that has a gun the same as a stone-cold killer, an insane murderer. One in the same – no difference. We’re all criminals that must be subject to the Progressive principle of Collective Guilt: if one, then ALL (no exceptions). So contra to our Constitutions, contra the American philosophy of innocent before proven guilty, we gun owners have already been deemed and ARE guilty and must pay for our sins (and crimes-yet-to-be-committed-but-they-are-sure-it-is-just-a-matter-of-time-until-we-do (e.g., not if, only when).  There really is no other explanation for their actions. Let’s face it, they are “projecting” in that while they call out the Right for “Othering” people, here they are doing it to almost half the US population (and certainly a large swath here in NH).

Thirdly, in addition in truly believing they are morally superior to the rest of us, they want us to know they can “social engineer” us any way and time they want. It’s their “right”.

So why hasn’t the rest of the NH Media called them out on this? Why hasn’t even ONE “journalist” that covers the NH political scene said anything? Adam Sexton? Kevin Landrigan? John DiStaso?  Others? You say that you are “objective” about such matter, taking no position as true “journalists” – why aren’t you “afflicting the Powerful” when it comes to basic Rights? As the Fourth Estate and recipients of First Amendment protection, aren’t you duty and morally bound to also protect the other negative Rights in the Bill of Rights?
