    Gun control debate: Background checks

    Between a rock and a hard place stands....


    I wonder if the right to bare arms in America is like the right to freedom of speech?


    Perhaps many are affected by profanity. Censorship has deemed some words less than ideal for the public to hear...


    Let's say dropping the F-Bomb is like a fully automatic assault weapon, figuratively of course.


    But perhaps a semiautomatic is another word. These words are just as they are. Words. Their meaning alone is limited at best.


    Only, the person speaking could be accused of using the words, not the words themselves.


    Language is a tool of communication.


    What would journalists say if the government declared that only certain adjectives would be allowed in certain news outlets and only certain people could have the right to use them?


    I guess it's all a matter of you perspective.
