A Lovely Mondegreen

As indicated below, I am watching the Canadian party leaders' debate, interpreted live into English.

Whoever is interpreting for Elizabeth May caused me to think that in a discussion on gun laws she had a major concern about "semiotic weapons"! My ears perked up. Finally I realized it was "semi-automatic".

There probably are quite a few semiotic weapons being fired in this debate.

"Mondegreen" explanation here.
