So how exactly would gun control prevent tragedies like this from occurring? If someone wants to do something like this, they'll find a way. Just because something is illegal doesn't mean it's inaccessible.
Heres the rub: (Not to repeat myself) This is exactly what Giuliani was insinuating on CNN the day before the shooting. Where does this idea even come from?
If someone wants to do something like this, they'll find a way.
Certainly not experience.
You can throw a random case of a mass stabbing from Japan at me as evidence but that doesn't make it factual. What happens more often? Mass shootings or stabbings?
As for the notion of mental illness and how to identify , treat and commit these individuals - Thats
the red herring.
We know absolutely nothing about the psychology of the people that commit these crimes. Nothing.
Think of all the psychology we know about murderers , serial killers, rapists etc etc etc. Take all the collective knowledge on psychology we have on criminals and their motives. We have no idea, no concept, no clue, no answers at all to what sets off or motivates anyone to commit massacres like this.
So now what? You guys want to go back to the twenties where husbands could just tell the Doctor - "My wifes crazy" And then shes committed to a mental institution against her will?
Lets loosen these laws instead of tightening these laws - Makes no effin sense.
What does treat these individual even mean? Medicate? What happens when they decide "I'm well now, I dont need this medication anymore"??
Lets just get rid of the guns already ffs. It isnt rocketsurgery
Note : Thirty of these types of mass tragedies have occured since Columbine.
Doing something about the guns *again the thing thats happening in reality
* is overdue.
We can at least try
to stop this.
Pulling a Flanders beatnik parents all "Ive tried nothing and Im all out of ideas" isnt going to fly anymore.
