Life, Liberty, and the Handgun: The Function of Synecdoche in the Brady Bill Debate.
Moore, Mark P.
Communication Quarterly, v42 n4 p434-47 Fall 1994
Identifies and discusses divergent synecdochal representations of the handgun as vital to both the construction and maintenance of competing social realities (handgun as threatened liberty and handgun as threatened life) in the debate over the Brady Bill. Demonstrates how such representations serve as divergent rhetorical constructs for competing interests. (SR)
