[Dissociated Press] On the one-year anniversary of the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, mental health experts across the nation are calling for better psychiatric care for the people who play such a pivotal role in mass shootings.
"Gun control advocates are nuts", noted Dr. Marcus Warren, president of the American Psychiatric Council, an umbrella group of mental health organizations dedicated to the mental health of the American public. "Nearly all of our mass shootings-- from Columbine to Virginia Tech to Fort Hood to Aurora Colorado to the Washington Navy Yard-- have been carried out because shooters were emboldened by the publicly declared fact that no one at any of these facilities is capable of armed self-defense."
Dr. Warren shook his head, clearly exasperated at the extent of untreated mental illness in our body politic.
"Gun-free zones are a lethal weapon. They attract mass shooters like a flame attracts moths. It's a crazy policy-- almost guaranteed to inspire mass shootings."
"Gun control advocacy is probably the most serious undiagnosed mental illness in the United States." Dr. Warren sighed. "Again and again gun control wackos enact lunatic legislation that demonstrably does nothing to curtail violence, and in fact, by declaring schools and countless public places across America as "gun free zones", clearly invite mass shooters to kill without fear of hinderance."
"Long before the Newtown shootings, gun control crazies in Connecticut passed some of the nation's most restrictive gun control laws." Warren observed. "By declaring Connecticut schools "gun free zones", these loons provided Adam Lanza-- a puny adolescent loser who could have been stopped if someone in the school had a BB gun-- with an opportunity to kill 26 defenseless people. Because Sandy Hook Elementary School had no armed security, and legal restrictions disarmed teachers and administrators who could have defended the children, Lanza knew he had at least ten minutes of complete freedom to kill at will."
"Gun control loons were Lanza's accomplices. They provided this demon with his theatre of defenseless innocents."
Dr. Warren shook his head. "There is no question about the diagnosis. Gun control advocacy is insane. It disarms victims, and emboldens killers. Why create buildings full of certified unarmed victims? After all, what is the definition of insanity? It's deficient reality testing, unhinged wishful thinking, and persistence in doing the same pointless thing that you've been doing over and over for decades, expecting a different result next time."
"We need to get these gun control psychos the help they need", Dr. Warren sighed, "before they kill again."
