Once again, it's not about PC, it's about accuracy, realism and civility.
Your UN Treaty comment, for example. Do you realize that treaties can not override constitutional provisions? Do you realize that the treaty specifically includes qualifiers in it's own text which state that the treaty does not apply to firearms commerce within individual countries, that it does not override any of those countries laws or constitutional provisions and that it specifically applies only to trade between nations?
In other words, whining about it being used to override the 2A is
Chicken Little, The Sky is Falling nonsense. That's why it's called such, because it IS.
Still happily answering to the call-sign Peetza.
The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.
