Reporters Complain NRA Is ‘Gunsplaining,’ ‘Bullying’ by Insisting They Use Correct Terminology


“While debating the merits of various gun-control proposals, Second Amendment enthusiasts often diminish, or outright dismiss their views if they use imprecise firearms terminology,” Weinstein wrote.

“Perhaps someone tweets about ‘assault-style’ weapons, only to be told that there’s no such thing,” he continued. “Maybe they’re reprimanded that an AR-15 is neither an assault rifle nor ‘high-powered.’ Or they say something about ‘machine guns’ when they really mean semiautomatic rifles.”

Wesintein coined this phenomenon “gunsplaining” and complained that it is “always done in bad faith.”

“Like mansplaining, it’s less about adding to the discourse than smothering it,” he added.

It’s not just terminology. When people say things like, “The AR-15 can fire 700 rounds a minute” or say handguns “are too slow” to stop a school shooter, they speak from a position of total ignorance. Why should we listen to them?

What if the right debated Global Warming with leftists, and when they started to lose the debate they changed the goal posts and started using idiotic terminology like “climate change” in order to win the argument?

Oh, wait.

  1. Typical, like yesterday with Sessions enforcing federal immigration law in CA the Dems can’t argue their position so they default to outrage, insults and name calling.

  2. Leftist propagandists Complain NRA…

    There. I corrected the headline to make it accurate. Weinstein sounds like a typical leftist puke. Someone needs to kick his ass.

  3. Its called factual reporting. Kinda like abortion is taking a human life. You don’t report that factually either.

  4. I think I’m going to need to break down and get a Twitter account so I can bitch slap little Faggots like this. I’ve heard all day today about how AR 15 are much deadlier than any other gun sold to the public, it sucks as a hunting gun, and NOBODY should own one. I did some battling on FB today and the first argument I run into is “They shoot much faster than other full semi auto guns”. No, they only fire once when you squeeze the trigger, so how fast can you move your trigger finger. Next “Well the bullet is faster”. So I ask “which round? You can chamber them in a variety of rounds”. Their answer “What’s a round”. Next argument, “You can’t hunt with them so you don’t need one”. My reply, “The Second Amendment has nothing to do with hunting and everything to do with us patriots defending ourselves from the likes of you people when you get brave enough, or a Tyrannical Government. The Ar-15 is a modular weapon. You can swap calibers as you desire by simply pinning a different upper on the weapon. Very cool for hunting”. No comment after that. Me, anybody want to talk about the AR 10?

  5. FUDGE ‘EM! :flipoff:

    We’re gonna RAM the CORRECT terminology down your libtard THROAT, the SAME way you TRY to ram UN-Constitutional legislation, up our ass! 😡

  6. This reminds me of an idiot named Karen Mallard who is running for Congress in Va. To show the public how anti-gun she was, she took a cutoff saw to a AR-15. But in her stupidity of gun laws, she filmed herself cutting the barrel and building an illegal Short Barreled Rifle. ATF has been flooded with calls asking for her arrest.

  7. Don’t waste your time Brad, it will just get you mad but won’t accomplish anything. I know, I’ve tried and watched many of my military friends try. It’s completely hopeless, your time is better spent elsewhere.
    I keep going on Twitter, and Facebook, and keep asking myself why I am doing this. At least on Facebook there is some social interaction.

  8. I am completely flabbergasted at this …. why is anyone ‘arguing’ on their platform? … you start off debating their stupidity, you’ve already lost

    the Second Amendment is a natural right, as defined in the governing document of the realm … you want to argue the abolishment of natural rights? … go for it … otherwise, stfu!

    I’m sick of this bantering of semantics

    again … what part of “… shall not be infringed.” don’t you understand?

  9. LCD,
    Yes, you are right. Judging by the insulting, impolite, threatening comments I get from ass holes with Hispanic names, the next Alamo might be in California. Maybe a charter flaw, but I don’t take threats well.

  10. I’ll take an AR-10B please……

    Reporters are like kids, you slap the fuck out of them until they learn. Being adult retards you also ridicule, embarrass, and make them feel stoopid during the process.

    Otherwise? Just kick the fuck out of them.

  11. I went to the NRA web store today looking for an NRA crystal broach (pin) like my Trump pin. They don’t have any cool women’s jewelry. I want one so bad just for all the fun I’d have seeing splodey heads.

    DH and I and our whole family are sickened by the idiot media.

  12. Weenie Stein and the other weenie libs have a problem. He/she/it, or whatever they want to be called, ground the argument in emotion. Then, to cover their embarrassment of being emotional, they attempt to hide their emotion under facts. They don’t know the facts they are trying to employ so they get the facts wrong which puts their stupidity on display. We laugh at them and they get more embarrassed and emotional. That’s when the fun begins.

    Don’t waste your time trying to reason with these weenies. Reason isn’t in them.

  13. Great. Next time one of these libidiots is carrying on about how great homosexuality is, start using the old time terms for them.
    Then tell them they’re fagsplainin.
