IMHO, finding and using some less offensive wording is a great idea . I like firearm because of the spade thing and it covers most all guns in a conversation . We all must remember that at the end of the day it will come down to the wording and how it's presented to the public and the courts if we wish to continue having the right to bare arms . The other side is winning in the war of words and if we can't change the preception of guns then we may lose them for good . Black & white is good but I don't think thats how this fight gets won .
Why do I carry a 45 ? because they don't make a 46
