One More Idiot With a Gun

School Shooter

This is just another freaking idiot that went unreported, when he had all the symptoms of a seriously deranged person. Does he sound a lot like the idiot in Texas that killed all of those unsuspecting church goers? Everyone of the whackos that have committed mass shootings over the past several years have been mentally deranged. Every time they take a look back into their lives they all seem to fit the same pattern. The talking heads on TV immediately start trying to determine the motive of the shooter. The motive is that he’s a crazy bastard that should have been under the care of a mental health facility, behind locked doors.

Think about this for a moment. I think we can all agree that the occurrence of mass shootings has escalated over the past 15 years. The United States has always been a place where guns are readily available. Semi auto rifles have been around forever. So why is this happening now with such frequency? In my opinion, I think the world today is a lot more difficult to navigate for a mentally challenged person. Everyone is moving at break-neck speed, trying to just keep up with daily grind, and nobody has time to even notice a person that is struggling. Mentally ill people are pushed away, and become lonely, angry people filled with rage. When they blow up, they can hurt a lot of innocent people.

The knee jerk reaction for a lot of people, on both sides of the aisle is to ban guns. That’s a really bad idea for the future of our freedom. The obvious solution is for everyone to just slow down, and pay attention to what is going on around them. All of these people have families and friends. If someone is slipping away, throw them a rope, get them some help, you may be saving more than just one life. The government needs to stop giving able bodied people welfare, and start paying more attention to mental health. What’s wrong with bringing back mental hospitals? Shouldn’t a person with a sick brain, be able to get help the same as a person with a sick stomach?

Here is the bottom line, guns don’t have mental illness. Guns are totally harmless when left alone. Normal, sane people don’t commit mass murder. We need to pay a lot more attention to the people around us that are showing signs of violent behavior. I recently heard someone say when a person kills people with a bomb, they don’t blame the bomb they blame the bomber. Stay vigilant, stay alive.
