PS To `split the difference’ maybe we continue to lash the lefties on the mag-clip distinction, but cut ourselves some slack.
Like `lose’ & `loser,’ etc., usage here: lose is (almost) always spelled ‘loose’.
We know better, but the sight of it—especially lately—is offensive & hurtful, like `GOP’ without the `-e.’
I do have expectations that the media would at least report it right, but the truth is that they are almost always wrong on everything, firearms related or not. You can't fix stupid.
I prefer not to get into the mag vs. clip argument with Lefties, because I reject their underlying arguments and that is the MUCH BIGGER deal. I don't want to lose my audience getting into the terminology when it doesn't ultimately matter. We've already won over the folks that know what we are talking about and we aren't going to impress the low-information folks with our precise descriptors. The issue is basic freedom, that is an easy concept to understand.
