    Re: Biden to Sign Executive Action on Guns

    The etymology of the term isn't relevant. In the context of the gun control debate, it is used as a weasel word.

    The agenda isn't "hidden" per se, it's just masked by populist "anti-racist" rhetoric. This has been discussed ad nauseum elsewhere. See Thesaurian's post for a basic introduction. As a quick example...
