Oregon electeds call it gun safety legislation. Much less inflamatory to gun lovers

than gun control. I was at a town hall about six months ago when our state reps and senator were obviously just transitioning to the new terminology as several times they would start to say gun control and then correct themselves. There were a couple of gun lovers there accusing our electeds of wanting to take their guns away, but the reply was no, we just want gun safety.

It may seem like just semantics, but I thought it was much more effective framing. Lakoff would approve.

2. There are yard signs in some of the rural places I travel

that say "Legislators Want to Take Away Your Guns."

I look at the signs and thank them for telling me where "the Legislators" need to go.
