The problem is that people who are a little off can't distinguish fiction from reality and the constant reinforcement fuels their disillusion. The normal people know the difference but someone who has compromised perception even temporarily can get worse. If one person in a thousand is a little off it can cause a lot of problems

Odd that while they blame guns for this tragedy
no one has said a single word about how the government's lack of funding have pretty much wiped out our nations mental health system.

You would think a very lib media group would jump on the fact that if this boy had the mental health assistance he obviously needed then it would have been highly unlikely he would have killed his mom and stolen her gun?

Oh yeah, guns bad = good ratings
Forgotten Mental Patients = Who give a flying fig...Unless their on American Idol.

It's been brought up a few times on ATS since Friday, the mental health treatment.

Every time it's brought up it's shouted down as some form of bigotry or intolerance.

Seems it's hateful to suggest proper funding and treatment for the mentally ill but it's perfectly alright to toss them in prisons and let them wander the streets like wild animals.

Remember when all the tv stations were banning tobacco ads and government experts were hollering about second hand smoke killing millions of people? Well, I never thought they' get that done, but they did. And more people are dying of cancer now than ever before.

So where are all the studies about people dying from second hand vaccines and second hand anti psychotics and anti depressants? Oh yeah, those studies are being blackballed.

Agenda 21.

NRA never saw gun control legislation they didn't like. The real pro-gun lobby is Gun Owners of America. That's why so many people have never heard of them.

Yea and its the very bad sort of hypocrisy. The sort that goes to a nice place to eat and orders a plate of cow crap, calls it fine food and takes care to observe all table etiquette.

Oh heck its just NBC. Numbnuts BC.

It's already underway in California, but then idiots willingly gave their oppressors a super majority in this state. They are currently preparing to use synchronized technology to track your DMV, IRS, medical, etc. Then of course there are the smart meters in your homes. You will not be able to have any unexplained cash and the government will be able to track your whereabouts and shut down your power and vehicle at will.


i have lived in california most of my life, and there is a good reason why the guv'mt is doing this:
1...DMV...to track stolen cars, stolen catalytic converters, drunk drivers
2...IRS...people that don't pay their taxes, business scam artists, fake charities
3...medical...save money by ending duplicate tests, safety of prescription drug use, medicare fraud, malpractice
there are reasons, and it usually makes it into law when something is abused, or is unlawful.

This.

You're absolutely right.

It only takes a couple people to affect the freedoms of everybody else.

You said that some people cannot discriminate between fiction and reality effectively. The same thing could be said for someone driving on a busy interstate who's daydreaming and not focusing on the road and causes an accident. Or somebody who's consumed too much alcohol and doesn't realize how much it'll impair their driving. If you hand the car keys to your 8 year old, something similar happens. These people aren't failing to discriminate fiction from reality in the same way as an insane person, but your point still stands: somebody doesn't use the freedom responsibly and others get hurt.

Basically, on a subjective level, when the society determines that a particular freedom is too costly or risky, it pulls back on it. It's figuring out how all that happens that's tricky. Not every country is the same. There're different cultures. No society is RIGHT when it makes a subjective judgment. Even systems of law in modern societies will likely be deemed as despicable and unrighteous perhaps only a few centuries from now when the world is even more locked into a state of precision. And then there's authoritarianism. Look at Germany when it pulled back on freedoms for jews and enslaved them. Look at dictators in various countries that will enforce stringent laws to maintain power.

We in this "free country" - the US of A - are not immune to these pressures. We can just as well as others make our own subjective societal judgments and submit our will to authority.

Big pharma isn't a rich industry? Its strictly hands off any but approved studies. Why?

Obviously the money junkies can print all the money they want and spend it however they want. They don't need tax money, they need your personal information on the tax forms.

Its about control.

We are 3 days out from this shooting.

The MSM is just getting ramped up.

There is no Bin Laden to go after, no WMD's or the Taliban to vilify.

They could just vilify the perpetrator of this shooting, but that would be too boring and would not get the attention that they need to justify their existance.

By cancelling a fringe show that isn't even on their main network, only on their sports network, they appear to be sympethetic without really doing anything, typical sidestepping and vilification.

Go after a legitimate sport while promoting fictional violence on their other shows.

Are they gonna ban shooter game commercials?

Are they gonna ban pharmaceutical commercials?

If not, then THEY are responsible for the shootings, not the NRA and responsible gun owners.

Anyone wondering why when these events happen, there is very little focus on the meds taken by the killers? If you did, just watch thirty minutes of programming on any news network and count the drug commercials vs the nra angun maker commercials. Now you know why Murdoch came out anti second ammedmemt.

This is an ignorant knee-jerk reaction. We should all stop living because a bunch of people were shot?

Stupid.

Well jimmyx you and others like you are all too willing to give up all semblance of your freedom for some perceived sense of safety. What may I ask makes you think these legislators have your best interests at heart? Can't you see the danger in this? Do you really trust other people more than you trust yourself?

So, NBC (often called the National Barack Channel) has decided to support his "guns are evil" campaign? Is anyone really surprised by this? Their tactics are pretty clear, too. Don't show the real uses of guns by most people, for sporting, or show anything about self defense. Do show things with criminals using guns, and running around murdering people, so you can make guns look bad.

The tatics are pretty clear. Yes, I agree. It is exactly as you say. What other motives. The dramas are fiction. They aren't real bullets. So we should not see real bullets fired, but fake ones with fake murders are just fine and dandy. That's the only other spin I can put on it.

They cancel shows where people have guns.

They promote shows where authority and government have guns.
