Here we go again, yet another shooting on a school campus and the inevitable cry for ‘something to be done’ to prevent more of the same in the future. Let’s put aside all the conspiracy theories about how it was a false flag incident designed to further weaken our resolve to allow the private ownership of guns. Let’s put aside the fact that one of the students captured on film appears to have been the same girl who was also captured on film at Sandy Hook…at Aurora….and at Boston, that’s just crazy that our government would do something like that.
Let’s also put aside that in William Cooper’s 1991 book Behold a Pale Horse, we find the following, “The government encouraged the manufacture and importation of military firearms for the criminal to use. This is intended to foster a feeling of insecurity, which would lead the American people to voluntarily disarm themselves by passing laws against firearms. Using drugs and hypnosis on mental patients in a process called Orion, the CIA inculcated the desire in these people to open fire in schoolyards and thus inflame the anti-gun lobby. This plan is well under way, and so far is working perfectly. The middle class is begging the government to do away with the 2nd Amendment.” I mean, if you put aside the fact that MK Ultra has been proven to have been a government sponsored mind control program, that is just crazy talk and anyone who mentions it does not deserve to be taken seriously.
Doesn’t it strike you as just a little but odd that before the next of kin have been notified the media machine and our elected officials are all on the same page calling for stricter gun laws to prevent further tragedies? I was in the Air Force for 13 years and I never knew to government to do anything that quickly. And as Matt Farrell correctly said in Live Free or Die Hard, “It took FEMA five days to get water to the Superdome.” Our government just isn’t capable of reacting that fast unless something has been pre-planned and all that is needed is the order to execute an order given. But again, that is just crazy talk Neal.
Okay, let’s put aside the crazy talk and presume that what we are being told is what really happened, some kid just snapped and took a shitload of guns to a college campus and began selecting people to kill.
Why? What causes these people to snap, to plan a shooting rampage like they do? The news media tells us that more often than not these kids were social misfits, or they were bullied. What they don’t tell us is that these kids have all been diagnosed with some form of mental illness and been prescribed some sort of drugs to combat their so-called illness. The media doesn’t tell us that a common side effect of the medication we pump our kids full of is the same behavior these shooters exhibit when they go on their rampages. They don’t tell us that the antidepressant trazodone has been said to cause, “New or worsening depression; thinking about harming or killing yourself, or planning or trying to do so; extreme worry; agitation; panic attacks; difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep; aggressive behavior; irritability; acting without thinking; severe restlessness; and frenzied abnormal excitement.”
Yet the first thing we hear after these shootings is the call for stricter gun laws. How about stricter control over who is prescribed these harmful drugs? And I don’t buy this bullshit about bullying being the root cause of this extreme form of aggressive behavior, and I’ll tell you why.
I’ve only told this story to a couple of close friends, but now I think it’s time the world knows why I think this whole bullied kid brings guns to school is a crock of shit. When I was in the Fifth Grade my family moved from San Jose, CA to Oroville CA. As most kids did back then, we didn’t have video games, cell phones, so we played outside. One evening my younger brother was playing with some neighbor kids who were younger than he was. He was laying on his back and pulling his knees up to his chest. The kids would sit on my brothers feet and he would catapult them out like cannon balls. One kid landed on his belly and started crying.
A older girl, the same age as I was, saw it and came over and started chewing my brother out. I said, “Linda, it was an accident, calm down.” Without warning she swung around and punched me in the gut and knocked the wind out of me. My younger brother freaked out and ran inside. Less than 10 seconds lager my father come running out, with a gun in his hand, and yells, “Bitch, get off my property before I call the cops.” To this day I have no idea what my brother told my father to evoke such a reaction, I never bothered asking. All I know is that instead of coming out to find out what had happened, he came out, guns blazing as it were, and forever altered the course of my life.
You have to remember, this was the FIFTH GRADE. When I went to school the next day my status had changed from new kid in town to the pussy who needs his dad to protect him from a girl. In the blink of an eye I went from someone who at some future date might have blended in and made friends to someone to be picked on, bullied, and challenged to fights to watch him cry.
That reputation followed me from elementary school to junior high, and to a lesser extent from junior high to high school. I learned what it meant to be a social outcast, a misfit, a pussy. Yet did I ever bring a gun to school and kill my tormentors? And don’t say it was because I didn’t have access to guns, my father had a virtual arsenal laying around the house and from an early age he had taught me how to shoot. Had I wanted to I could have gotten my hands on guns and took them to school…easily. But the point is the thought never crossed my mind. I just sucked it up and took what they threw at me. It made me tough, kind of like in that old Johnny Cash song A Boy Named Sue.
Have you people ever watched an old western and seen how large herds of cattle are moved…CONTROLLED…by just a few cowboys on horseback? That is how I see most people, a big herd of mindless people who follow the instructions of a few in the media or in politics. Your thoughts, your beliefs are spoon fed to you and you don’t have an original thought of your own running through your minds.
People today are so easily influenced. Just the other day I did a small experiment. We were out grocery shopping and as I pushed my cart out into the parking lot towards my car I kept gazing up into the sky. As I did I noticed other people began looking upwards too. There was nothing up there but sky and a few clouds, but people assumed that since I was looking up there that there must be something to see, so they looked up too.
That is how the media works. They say a few key words, key phrases, and the people do the rest. They have been programmed to trust people in these positions of so-called authority and when they hear these key words or phrases they react a certain way without thinking. So when the news says rampage, tragedy, shooting, the people react accordingly by repeating the phrases they have been taught…STRICTER GUN LAWS.
When I was stationed at Vandenberg Air Force Base my mother notified me that they found a tumor on my father’s back and that it was cancerous. They removed the tumor but the cancer was still in his body and had spread like wildfire and was in his colon, his lungs, and his lymph nodes. He died within 6 months.
Cutting the tumor off did nothing to stop the spread of the cancer eating away at my father. That is how I view gun control laws enacted in response to these rampage style shootings. The root problem still exists, that being evil people seeking to bring harm to innocent people. Guns are just the tools these sick people choose to enact their plans, if we could take all the guns out of circulation in the public these sick people will still be there, and they will find some other way to kill.
The problem is not guns, the problem is that people today have no value for life. People also have been taught that life owes them something, that society owes them something, and that when they don’t get what they believed they are owed they act out because they feel like they have been singled out by society. People need to be taught that life is not fair, that you need to be tough to make it out of life alive. Instead we have a whole group of pussified people who are heavily medicated and believing that life has slighted them. It is a recipe for disaster and taking the guns away from innocent people isn’t going to do a damned thing to stop further shootings.
But that is just what they want, they want a society full of people afraid of guns, not thinking about the WHY of these school shootings. They want the majority, YOU, calling for the disarmament of the minority, ME, and all the other law abiding gun owners. And how exactly do you think taking everyone’s guns away is going to make the world a safer place, when the only people who have guns are in positions of authority over you?
A disarmed society has no means of fighting back against oppressive power and abuse of authority. They could begin rounding up all these people with all these so-called mental illnesses and there would be nothing you could do to stop them. Your kid with ADD or ADHD, they could come get him/her and you couldn’t stop them. The returning Vet with PTSD, round them up and lock them away. Then what about writers and bloggers like me who espouse all these pro Constitution articles…round us up and lock us away and there would be nothing we could do to fight back.
If there is anything left of the patriotic spark left in your minds, if there is any ability to think, to reason, I’d like for you to consider very carefully two quotes. The first was taken from a speech delivered by Patrick Henry on June 5, 1788 and the second was from the Protestant Pastor Martin Niemöller who openly opposed Adolf Hitler.
Read and think…
“Oh, Sir, we should have fine times indeed, if to punish tyrants, it were only sufficient to assemble the people. Your arms wherewith you could defend yourselves, are gone; and you have no longer an aristocratical; no longer democratical spirit. Did you ever read of any revolution in a nation, brought about by the punishment of those in power, inflicted by those who had no power at all?”
“First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out–Because I was not a Socialist. Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out–Because I was not a Socialist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out–Because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me–and there was no one left to speak for me.”
Who is it that you think defends your freedom, your liberty? The government? If so you are a fool and there is no hope for you. We, the gun owners of this country, who understand that power corrupts and that it is our duty, our responsibility as patriots, to stand against unlawful abuse of power, are the only thing standing between you and a government that would deprive you of every freedom you still enjoy.
As Joseph Story wrote in his Commentaries on the Constitution, “The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered, as the palladium of the liberties of a republic; since it offers a strong moral check against the usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers; and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist and triumph over them.”
And you want to see us disarmed? If you ask me, you guys are the danger to society and are the ones that need to be locked up.
Guns aren’t the problem, people are the problem. But it is easier for you to call for gun control than it is to call for a revision of the way you think and feel so, as always, Americans take the easy route and then feel good about themselves by saying they fought for something to make the world a better place. But make no mistake, you take away our guns and the world will be a whole lot more dangerous for you than it is now. And you can take that to the bank.
