What's In A Name Pt II

To add to a previous post about the rotating names/terminology of 'gun control'.

The group led by Gabby Gifford's husband as his own personal slush fund is starting a chain of department stores apparently.
Her group, Americans for Responsible Solutions, is changing its name to Giffords. The new name is part of a larger intention of breaking free from the group’s failure to place further restrictions on the Second Amendment.
So I guess they're no longer 'Americans', 'Responsible', nor looking for 'Solutions'.  Funny how that works.
