I agree the "title" of organizations and laws are important.

They see where a woman used to gun to stop a mean drunk, even though she never fired a shot. Mayors can't see the point of disarming the public. Unlike Bloomberg most mayors try to serve their community.
I think it is very important to recognize and distinguish the intent in comparison to the solution and approach. They aren't nearly as focused in fixing the problem as evident to some of the "stupid" ways they are trying to accomplish such. But then they bury "false" solutions by promoting a solution of taking guns from everyone. Even their own know that won't fix any issues.

Edit:

All good reads - take your pick.
