Comments: Language Police?

"Gun culture" and "common-sense gun control" are greatly misused.

How about "arsenal," "weapons-cache," and "thousands of rounds?"

I wonder how the contents of my safe would be described on the local news...

"Stray bullet". It's, like, when, you know, some poor little bullet doesn't have a home. Mommy, can I keep him?

How 'bout "high-powered" in reference to anything less potent than the 30-06?

"No legitimate purpose"

"Weapons of war" (even though it's technically correct, it's mispercieved)

"cop-killer bullets"

"armor-piercing"
