The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines fear as “to be afraid of something or someone; to expect or worry about something bad or unpleasant.” To be terrorized is defined as “to cause (someone) to be extremely afraid” or “to force (someone) to do something by using threats or violence.” So, if someone changes their behavior or alter their thought process because they fear guns and the carnage they can wreak, have they been terrorized?
