Taking Aim

It seems that CNN anchor John King apologized for a guest's use of the term "crosshairs." I would like to target this kind of excessively cautious behavior. At risk of getting into a shooting match with some of my more gun-shy friends, does anyone really think that such talk is to blame for the AZ tragedy?

Rather than continue to beat this dead horse, I'd like to nuke any more discussion of whether trite and overused martial metaphors really do anything more than carpet bomb the English language.
