As soon as the dust settles over the recent shooting in Connecticut the left is going to SCREAM about gun control, banning guns and taking away freedoms from MILLIONS of honest, legal and sane gun owners that have done absolutely NOTHING wrong.
The GUN didn’t do it…
Insanity is the root cause of ALL of these recent incidents of mass murder, and the stability of the human mind is something that no one can judge at the counter of a gun store, unless the potential buyer is a blathering idiot.
Gun bans, weapons bans and magazine bans are NOT the answer, mental health is the answer.
According to sources the Colorado shooting suspect, James Eagen Holmes, was a brilliant science student.
Now sources are saying that Connecticut shooter Adam Lanza was brilliant but remote.
These men were brilliant? Maybe by some definition, but I am thinking that their cheese slid off of the cracker!
Similarities perhaps? Coincidence? Maybe, but what if there is a serious issue at hand and these thought to be brilliant people were truly nothing more than NUT BAGS and no one had the intestinal fortitude to come forward and say so?
That seems to be the case in both shootings; Holmes mother knew immediately that the Police had the right guy, but she had failed to say anything prior to him going on a rampage, or if she did, nothing was done.
If Lanza was *brilliant but troubled* why didn’t his mother get involved and help her Son to help himself? Didn’t SHE see it? Didn’t SHE care about her son?
In every case of mass murder the perpetrator is generally ruled to be insane to some degree. Does that insanity not show up to the public? Do friends, neighbors and loved ones not SEE what is going on?
Or do they succumb to that which is destroying our nation? The disease called Political Correctness! I am NOT one that suffers from PCness, I speak my mind and am unafraid to do so.
Are some people too afraid to speak for fear of trampling the rights of their loved one?
You know, once in a while some plain speech and old fashioned truth is exactly what is needed. Plain speech and truth have gone by the wayside. Americans are too concerned about *offending* than they are with doing the RIGHT thing.
Not too terribly long ago I knew a young guy that made a post on his Facebook page saying something to the effect of, “Sometimes I feel like getting my gun and just killing a bunch of people…”
Maybe it’s because I have some knowledge in the matter, maybe it’s because I wanted to be a good citizen and protect the people of my town, whatever the case may be, I called a friend that’s a Detective on our local Police Department and made him aware of what was going on and the Police got involved.
I don’t know where that young man is today but I do know this, he’s not a threat to our local community because I took it upon myself to intervene as soon as I saw a problem.
I don’t know what took place in the Lanza home, I don’t know if we ever will, but obviously there is one thing that didn’t happen and that is something called parental intervention, and an intervention may well have saved 26 lives on Friday!
I have long believed that an insanity plea in Court is often an attempt to get out of your troubles by taking a trip to the local *nut house* and is not necessarily a person that is insane at all.
But I have to believe that any person that could commit MASS MURDER in such a fashion, especially against the most innocent and unprotected, the children of this nation, has got to be possessed with a special kind of insanity and evil!
There is a multitude of cliches that apply to the coming gun debate and all are true, but the bottom line is this; no *gun ban* is going to work. For one thing; it is damned near impossible to ban and remove all guns from the hands of the American people, for any number of reasons, the least of which is; the American people are NOT going to just roll over and hand you their guns.
The best way I can explain the idea of a *gun ban* not working is this; think about the WAR ON DRUGS and the glowing success that has been.
Not to take away from the efforts made by our Narcotics Officers and such, but the drug flow into this nation has not, and WILL NOT BE stopped regardless the effort. It’s the same with guns.
And back to the cliches; when guns are outlawed only outlaws will have guns.
