I don't care if we end up with gun control or not. Gun Control is entirely beside the point. You think only crazy people commit mass murder? You may be right - but that does not change one simple fact: I could drive you batshit insane, all in three weeks or less. And what recourse would you have? None. All of your family, friends, and even employer would insist on mental health counseling - where you would find nothing but denial, and chemical restraint.
It makes me sick to watch the anti-gun lobby use this incident to reshape our society after their own image - and do so without one tear, not one, for the tens of thousands killed in the name of American Consumer Demand -
It makes me sick no one says shit about accidental engineering . . . .
I'm ranting about this issue simply because the mentally ill generally don't go on crusade without some help.
I'm ranting about this issue because if you look at the dsm iv you will see that there is not one single person on the planet who will escape labeling at their hands
I'm ranting about this issue because no one is talking about analytical behaviorism and human engineering
Because no one seems to give a shit about 50,000 to 100,000 human beings slain in Mexico since 2006, all in the name of american consumer demand - let alone the kids slain in the U.S. over sales territory
I'm ranting about this because gun legislation will not stop instances of mass murder like this - for example - were I to contemplate mass murder without recourse to firearms all I need do is put the snow plow on, wait for the next marathon, identify a convenient bottleneck on the course, and have at it.
- With a concerted effort I could probably top most previous mass murderers from among the U.S. civilian population with the exception of McV,. who used a bomb.
Committing mass murder isn't all that difficult to do, with or without a firearm.
Gun regs are nothing but a feel good measure. They don't address the problem.
The problem is that there are those in our society who find mass murder to be both utile and expedient - and they are both in possession of sufficient technology and in a position to employ that technology to make it happen.
In the shadow of silence cowardice breeds -
tears born of horror become a river of shame.
