I have been thinking about this and you know what this term is completely wrong with what is supposed to identify.
It's not the gun that is violent - its the person using it - the gun is only a means to that end.
So, we need to stop using the term "gun violence" and call it what it really is "Violent person firearm crime".
This puts things in perspective and it identifies exactly what it is - it's a violent person using a firearm in to commit a crime of violence
So if we want to be politically correct about this we need to call it what it is - a violent person using a firearm to commit a crime of violence.
