Spare Me the Bullshit on Guns

THOUGHT OF THE DAY:

“Spare me the bullshit about mental illness. We don’t have any more ‘mental illness’ than any other country in the world. You cannot explain this through a prism of mental illness, because … we’re not an outlier on mental illness. We’re an outlier when it comes to access to firearms and the ability of criminals and very sick people to get their hands on firearms. That’s what makes America different.”

— Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT)

Note: I’ll add the following comments…..

(1)  Spare me the bullshit about the decline of religion and bible verses not being taught in schools as a factor in gun violence….nations that are *far less* religious than the United States and have *no bibles* in the schools have virtually *no school shootings.*

(2)  Spare me the bullshit about arming teachers and lunch ladies. If 120 heavily armed police officers and a SWAT team wouldn’t or couldn’t stop one 18-year-old kid while he shot up a school for an hour on a rampage, the teacher and the lunch lady aren’t going to save the kids.

(3)  Spare me the bullshit about arming more citizens. This fearful nation has more guns than people. Double the number of guns, or triple it, or even quadruple it, and the violence arrow is going to go in just one obvious direction. There’s been a massive increase in gun violence in the last few decades.  Why? Because there are more guns. If you don’t understand this, you don’t understand simple math.

Okay, so it’s a ‘mental health issue.”

Let’s go along with this claim for the sake of argument.

“State of Mental Health in America” by Mental Health America, a nonprofit that advocates for people with mental illness recently ranked access to mental health care across America. The study indicates how much access to care exists within a state. The metrics considered (1) access to insurance, (2) access to treatment, (2) quality and cost of insurance, (3) access to special education, (4) mental health workforce availability, and (5) state funding.

Fact: In the group’s 2022 report, Texas ranked 51st out of the 50 states and the District of Columbia.

Not 50th. 51st!

TEXAS RANKS DEAD LAST!
