I do not think you know what projection is. I really know of no other term to describe developing an argument based on definition of a term. And no, a retort does not show anything about being in the wrong, whatever that term means.
FYI - The term was used by the USCCB. It is neither a lie, another term you do no use correctly, nor is the Catholic Church “sans all morals.”
If you want to make your argument against what others will consider common sense gun control based on terminology, then I thank you. We need to limit the number of the more dangerous firearms circulating and it is my opinion such arguments serve that purpose through the shallowness of the thinking behind it.
