I doubt it will catch on. It's not stupid and illogical enough.
Sounds like a new thing that LEO and politicians are describing people as being....
If you support 2nd amendment causes, you will soon also be deemed as "radicalized" or "self-radicalized"
Watch and wait for it and be prepared for this new effort to classify people.
I don't think so... IMO using the term "radicalized" is just another typical leftist ploy of blaming something other than the bad guy for doing bad things. They can't remain politically correct while blaming Islam, a black guy, an illegal immigrants, etç so they blame the boogey-man - someone "out there" who radicalized them. This same response is seen frequently from Ferguson protesters to US state dept spokepeople to MSM.
In this same vein, it is unlikely to be used towards 2A supporters because the left already says that 2A supporters and NRA members and the like are inherently evil child killers. There is no need for them to call us radicalized because they have no qualms about calling us horrid things and blaming us directly for things that have nothing to do with us.

Freedom and the thinking that we have a right to defend ourselves is very radical for some (many or all) of the the antis.
Who "radicalized" me? The founding fathers of our country and an educational system that was not totally broken, encouraged independent thinking. Supported by in home system (parents & grandparents) that promoted standing up for my beliefs.
Now I pass that responsibility on, as do others many here.

Thank goodness that I am safe from the "radicalized" accusation, being a trained reactionary. "Reactionaries are considered to be one end of a political spectrum whose opposite pole is progressivism/radicalism (in the meaning "left"), though reactionary ideologies may be themselves radical (in the meaning "extreme").

If TRUMP 2016 loses then I will shrug off my WHITE MAN'S BURDEN and leave the world to the Dindus and Done Nuffins. Read and understand Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged as a prescription for the future. TRUMP 2016
