This article highlights something I have long suspected about the state of things in America, with specific attention to the senseless murder of its
people, by persons in its society who seem to have lost touch with reality. People will use ANY tool, justify any action, when they are in an altered
state, when circumstance and chemical imbalance combine in such profusion, there will be death. Wether a person uses a gun or a brick, there will be
death, unless the core issues are addressed.
These are more deeply important issues than the availability of objects which could be used in a murder. The prevention of wanton, and senseless
murder and chaos, cannot revolve around an argument about guns, and thier availability. If the government in the US wish to change things, then it
must begin to address the psychological disorders that are being suffered by those who are perpetrating these appalling acts.
When a man kills someone with his bare hands, do we consider taking them away from people? No. When a person runs someone over, is there an outcry
against the car in general? No. When someone kills someone with poisons, does the human race attempt to ban the entire segment of the periodic table
from which it came? No.
It is the diseased mind of the killers, that needs to be addressed, the state of mental health awareness in the USA that needs to be dealt with, if
these incidents are to be averted. Although it is true that a gun is purpose built for one single reason, it is not the gun that makes possible the
acts which its user wishes to involve himself in. It is the contents of the mind, that dictate the action of the body, in pulling the trigger, pushing
in the knife, triggering the detonator, or pushing down the accelerator of a car, to whatever end is intended. Until this part of the process is
identified as the root of the problem, nothing will change, nothing can change.
