    Everything has a politically correct label these days. Something to make it seem less offensive or to give it more value than it really deserves. Well, I want to see what you guys can come up with when it comes to PC terms for things related to guns.

    I'll start it off with a few:

    Sniper: "Cranial Matter Removal and Marksmanship Technician"

    Ricochet: "Directionally challenged projectile"

    Boresnake: "Erectile dysfunctional cleaning apparatus"

    AR-15: "Rodent/Human removal apparatus"

    AK-47: "Assault rifle for the religiously challenged"

    Stovepipe/ CAR-15 buttstock: "Bill Clinton"

    Glock: "Polymer-based self-defense option"
    JHP: "Dimpled space-filling projectile"
    Assault rifle: "Time-conserving sporting goods"

    What channels have you guys been watching?

    The politically correct term for any gun I thought was "tactical long-range assault high-powered armor-piercing sniper weapon system"?

    I'm not sure where you got your notions of "politically correct". Guns themselves are not politically correct. With that in mind....

    Self-defense shooting = "Gun violence"

    FMJ ammunition = "Armor piercing cop killer bullets"

    JHP ammunition = "Armor piercing cop killer bullets"

    Ball ammunition = "Armor piercing cop killer bullets"

    Semi-automatic rifle = "Military style assault weapon"

    Bolt-action rifle = "High-powered military style sniper rifle"

    Semi-automatic handgun = "Mass murder weapon favored by gang members and school shooters."

    Revolver = "Dirty Harry style cop killer handgun"

    Politically Correct
    Handgun - Handheld Survival Insurance Device
    Rifle - Long Distance Food Gathering Tool
    Flamethrower - Farm Equipment

    Though it seems like the media makes it seem like:
    Any Firearm - Weapon of Mass Destruction :p

    Blackbeard made me wonder... is there a difference between FMJ and "Ball" ammunition? :confused:

    No they're different terms for the same thing.

    Handgun- "Handheld Self-Defense Empowerment Tool"

    Pump Shotgun- "Manually Operated Burglar Deterrent Device"

    EBR- "Medium Range Sport/Utility Force Amplification Projectile Launcher"

    Bolt-Action Rifle- "Long-Distance Capable Precision Chemical Propellant Powered Sporting Aid"


    Naturally, these innocuously-named objects are far more appealing than the following:

    Stun Gun- "Highly Concealable Electroshock Torture Device"
    Tazer- "Ranged Skin-Piercing Weaponized Electrocution Device"
    Knife- "Concealable, Stealthy Assassination/Murder Weapon"
    Pepper Spray- "Pain-Inducing Chemical Torture Spray"
