It’s US, Not The Guns

After reading Utah’s post, pretty much on this same subject, I figured I’d finish the post I had been writing the past couple days.  At this point, I admit I am piling on, but I think you might find my take on this same issue a bit different:

SOCIAL ENGINEERING: It’s Not The Guns, It’s Us

Gun Control Laws Are An Irrational Response To A Symptom Of Societal Decay

 By now, I am sure we have all heard about the shooting at the Navy Yard.  If you are one of those who pay attention – and I assume you are if you are reading this – no doubt you have heard the renewed calls for more gun control.  Well, the problem isn’t guns, but the irrational people blaming an inanimate object for the acts of an individual give us some clues as to where the real problem lies.


I am going to state this bluntly: anyone who argues that more gun control will stop the next shooting either wants to take your weapons so they can control you, or they are insane.  Yes, I am saying that the people calling for gun control are doing so because they do not want the people to be able to oppose the government, or they are mentally insane.  Look up the definition of the word insane and you will find I am using it correctly, and here’s why:

A friend and co-blogger, Utah, brought this study to my attention in a post he wrote on the Rio Norte Line:

    Crazier Than Liberals
    There’s been another mass shooting by a crazy person, and liberals still refuse to consider institutionalizing the dangerous mentally ill.

    The man who shot up the Washington Navy Yard on Monday, Aaron Alexis, heard voices speaking to him through the walls. He thought people were following him. He believed microwave ovens were sending vibrations through his body. There are also reports that Alexis believed the Obamacare exchanges were ready to go.

    Anyone see any bright red flags of paranoid schizophrenia? (Either that, or Obama’s NSA is way better than we thought!)

    But Alexis couldn’t be institutionalized because the left has officially certified the mentally ill as “victims,” and once you’re a victim, all that matters is that you not be “stigmatized.”

    But here’s the problem: Coddling the mentally ill isn’t even helping the mentally ill. Ask the sisters of crazy homeless woman “Billie Boggs” how grateful they were to the ACLU for keeping Boggs living on the streets of New York City. Ask the parents of Aaron Alexis, James Holmes (Aurora, Colo., movie theater shooter), Jared Loughner (Tucson, Ariz., mall shooter) or Seung-Hui Cho (Virginia Tech shooter) how happy they are that their sons weren’t institutionalized.

    Tellingly, throughout the last three decades, the overall homicide rate has been in free fall, thanks to Republican crime policies, from 10 per 100,000 in 1980 to 4 per 100,00 today. (You might even call them “common sense” crime policies.) But the number of mass shootings has skyrocketed from 4 per year, between 1900 and 1970, to 29 per year since then.

    Something seems to have gone horribly wrong right around 1970. What could it be? Was it the introduction of bell-bottoms?

    That date happens to correlate precisely with when the country began throwing the mentally ill out of institutions in 1969. Your memory of there not being as many mass murders a few decades ago is correct. Your memory of there not being as many homeless people a few decades ago is also correct.

    But liberals won’t allow the dangerous mentally ill to be committed to institutions against their will. (The threat of commitment is very persuasive in getting disturbed individuals to take their medicine.) Something in liberals’ genetic makeup compels them to attack civilization, for example, by defending the right of dangerous psychotics to refuse treatment and then representing them in court after they commit murder.
