No More Newtowns

There is an article on The Daily Beast talking about gun control. What I find interesting is the image used in the article. Someone is holding up a sign that says “No More Newtowns”. The O of no has an AR-15 with a red slash through it.

Its not the protestors, or the sign, or the article that amazes me. What really gets to me is people not placing blame where it belongs, which is on the mentally ill who killed other people.Kevin Felts, blogger and survivalist

Why isn’t the nation debt receiving the same attention as gun violence?

Why isn’t free trade receiving as much attention as gun violence?

Why aren’t mentally ill people receiving as much attention as guns?

Why isn’t corporate crime receiving as much attention has gun control?

The simple answer is people need a scape goat for their problems. Instead of addressing the complex issues, such as the state of mental health in America, lets just ban guns.

Instead of addressing our national debt, high unemployment rates, record number of people on welfare, bank bailouts,,, lets just ban certain types of guns. For some reason banning the manufacturer and sale of AR-15s is going to magically fix the mental health and depression crisis in America? Where does that kind of logic come from?

Time To Ban The Mentally Ill

You are now entering the politically incorrect zone. If this post offends you,,,, good.

I am sick and tired of mentally ill people gong on shooting sprees. What is it going to take to keep those people off the streets?

If the government can require people to have a license to hunt, drive, get married,,,, why not require the mentally ill to get a permit or license?

If the government can prohibit the ownership of gold, why not prohibit mentally ill people? President obama should issue an executive order making families turn over their mentally ill to the government.

If the US government can force Native Americans to relocate to reservations, why can’t mentally ill people be forced to relocate to a guarded facility?

If the US government can force Japanese-Americans to be detained without due process of law, why cant the government detain the mentally ill?

If various states can force undesirable people to become sterilized, why cant we do something about the mentally ill?
