Gun Control Victim Disarmament

Today, I discovered a far more accurate term for what has traditionally been called Gun Control: Victim Disarmament.

Since the current restrictions on guns tend to prevent law-abiding citizens from having guns while failing to stop criminals from acquring them, the current policies effectively prevent victims from defending themselves. This term draws attention to that defect in our current policy.

Thanks to Tom W. Bell of Agoraphilia for pointing the term out on his blog.
