We have some questions related to gun control/gun rights/weapons on the site, and will likely get many more.
What would be good tags for them (and how many do we need?)?
Ideally, the tag(s) would be objective and balanced.
Some of the possibilities are:
The main flaw is that it's not very specific, and lumpts together questions related to military weapons and war; and civilian weapon ownership; and police weapons tactis (tasers etc... - I recall seeing a taser question recently but it may have been on Skeptics).
The downside is that this is somewhat partisan, as it's the term that IMHO is used with a connotation that the less guns the better. I could be wrong on the connotation though.
This one is loader the other way from gun-control; it has a connotation that guns should NOT be restricted.
The pro is that it is 100% guaranteed to be neutral and objective. The con is that it's an unaesthetic mouthful. Personally, I'm inclined towards this one unless people hate it.
