How to use gag in a sentence?

  1. Jody Steinauer:

    This kind of feels like the US domestic and global gag rule, preventing physicians from being able to talk about abortion. ... This feels like it's an extension of that.

  2. Jessica Stanley:

    Basically each year I watch the kids and see what their natural interests or fascinations are, which usually leads to an idea, for example in 2019, they were obsessed with drones and always wanted me to fly them, so that triggered the 'Fly Like Santa' idea. In 2020, while stuck at home, they got really into hammers and nails, so that led to the nail gun gag.

  3. Pranab Mukherjee:

    There is a growing tendency to resort to disruption as a means of parliamentary intervention. Dissent is a recognized democratic expression, but disruption leads to loss of time and resources, and paralyses policy formulation, under no circumstances should there be disruption of the proceedings. A noisy minority cannot be allowed to gag a patient majority.

  4. Michelle Matlack:

    It's part-gag, but part of it is maintaining this social activity that's become important to me.
