When Is Gun Control Not “Gun Control?”

Conservative Democrats aligned with the National Rifle Association, shaken by the Newtown school massacre, are reconsidering their opposition to gun controls such as bans on certain assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, writes the National Journal. These Second-Amendment champions could be the key to passing new legislation this year, as could be the language they use. Rep. Mike Thompson, D-CA, an avid hunter who was just named head of a House Democrats’ task force on gun violence, made that clear in an interview. Asked how he can persuade his colleagues to support gun control, he responded succinctly: “Well, we can start by not calling it ‘gun control.’”
