Just about zero talk about "common-sense gun control" on CNN and MSNBC.

Focus is on the "broken" mental health system and inadequate care of returning soldiers.

And they're even asking why in the hell there aren't more of the competent personnel on bases aren't armed and prepared to deal with exigent situations like this.

Yea but but but more armed people means more chaos! We don't need a bunch of armed people spraying bullets everywhere, how are we going to know who the real bad guy is?

Oh, they're government employees with specialized training you say. Well then they're allowed to have guns.

I know you're being sarcastic, but CNN is actually raising that argument and allowing it be answered with the fact that military bases are rife with trained--- but disarmed--- individuals.

Really, it's almost as if the NRA's arguments have actually begun to sink in.

Pinch me.

The mental health argument is wayyy scarier than "common sense gun control". EVERYONE will have something happen at one point in their lives or another that a liberally minded psychiatrist could diagnose as mental illness I don't care who it is. The mental illness attack method will be the way to disarm everyone especially since every school seems to have a staff psychiatrist or psychologist these days most people will be banned from owning guns before they are old enough to own them if things carry on their current path (the breakup with the first girlfriend with an angsty hormonal teen involved anyone?). What really pisses me off is that the NRA and so many pro-gunners love to blame other things for gun violence whether it is video games, mental illness, movies and TV, prescription drugs or whatever else.

The message from the NRA needs to be to the antis should be this; "FUCK YOU! Our rights have an implicit cost to maintain our freedom, that we as a society need to decide whether we are willing to pay that cost." Whether people have guns or not there will always be the fuckup that lights up his office, drives a bus into a crowd of people or sets off a bomb in public and this will carry on happening until perhaps we live in the world of 1984 where everyone is under surveillance 24/7 and there is no freedom and even then I'm sure even then murder will still happen from time to time when someone bashes someone else over the head with a rock in the heat of the moment.

It's like the bullshit that has happened with smoking. For the record I hate smoking, my mother smoked like a train for as long as I can remember. I remember the headaches the smoke on long car rides in my mom's car. The smell of the upholstery in her car is scorched into my memory and makes me ill thinking about it and I would never even consider picking it up for any reason. Still though I respect someone else's right to smoke because look at the progression that happened:

-You can smoke at the movie theater.

-Then you couldnt smoke at the theater anymore but you could still smoke at the restaurant.

-Then you can only smoke at the restaurant in the designated smoking section.

-Then we had, you can only smoke at the bar, there is no other smoking section.

-Then you have to go outside to smoke.

-Then you can only smoke if you do so 45 feet from an entrance.

-Then we went to no smoking in public parks and we won't hire you if you smoke.

Where the fuck does it end?! The other day I was walking outside a store and I saw a person approach someone else who was smoking OUTSIDE and away from the door and said no joke, "Your smoking offends me!". I was so disgusted and nauseated that this person felt the need to walk up to someone else and say some shit like that to another person (and breathe the smoke they found so offensive at the same time in order to do so!). The number one principal we need to teach is, "Mind your own god damned business!".

As far as I'm concerned Wayne LaPierre needs to be on MSNBC defending my right to own a Browning M2 mounted in my truck bed and an anti-tank missle behind the seat and tell anyone who proposes any level of gun control to a long walk off a short pier rather than playing the blame game which is so pathetic. We should be playing offense and not bargaining with liberals for what few shreds and scraps remain of our rights. This mental health gun control business will be our undoing at the hands of the NRA and their blame game mark my words! We should not concede at all on anything with regards to ANY of our rights!
