It really scares me that so many people really believe in all this "hidden in plain sight" symbology.
Pulling the song off the radio? Give me a break. How spinless and weak stomached have the American public become? Are we so full of fear these days
that anything that hurts our sensitive little ears must be banished forever?
People, kids died. I get that. It wasn't the guns that did this, but the person behind the trigger. Instead of falling in line out of fear (like we
are supposed to) -- lets stand up and come together and address the real problem -- mental illness.
The loudest voices I've been hearing are urbanites that live in tiny little apartments in high-density cities. Most of these people never have been
around a gun. They are litterally screaming and crying and sobbing over a terrible incident that has no direct connection to themselves.
Sometimes there isn't an easy answer -- and I find when that occurs people go NUTS. They NEED to find some place to lay the blame. But it can't be on
the abysmal mental health system ... no no no, that's to big and complicated of an issue to tackle. I know, lets just go after the guns! Yeah!
That's like giving someone dayquil for a persistant cold. Get to the root of the problem!
Music isn't part of this either! And now, it's not just about guns ... now it's even music and video games. WTF people? Buck up, put your big boy
American panties on and man up to the real problem.
I know it's a messy one, I know it's a complicated one. I know most people are ignorant and want to ignore mental health issues due to the stigma
attached to them. But it's what NEEDS to be looked at. Why are people behaving like this? Is it the food? Is it genetics? Is it lack of social
standards? Those are the hard questions we are facing.
I smell the same hysteria and fear I did after 9/11 ... and look what that got us? TSA, DHS, 2 wars...ect, ect.
We really have become a country of soft, easily scareable wimps. Maybe we deserve to have our guns taken away, I sure as hell don't think anyone left
in America has the intestinal fortitude to use them safley and responsibly anymore anwayway!
