Exactly ONE MONTH and ONE DAY after I wrote the article “CRAZIES WITH GUNS, who ever thought that one mentally disturbed 20 year old could reek such havoc, shock and sadness over the entire world in just a few hours time. There are many parents of autistic children, bi-polar children and children diagnosed with Aspergers wondering if they have an emotional time bomb living under their roof.
Four days after 20-year-old Adam Lanza forced his way into the Sandy Hook Elementary school and gunned down a score of 6- and 7-year-olds, in addition to six faculty and staff, it is an active crime scene. Lanza’s senseless massacre was one of the deadliest school shootings in U.S. history, prompting many politically flawed lawmakers to use this opportunity to further their campaign for “GUN CONTROL”, calling for automatic weapons ban, magazine bans and tighter restrictions on guns. More importantly, it is causing school administrators around the country to assess their safety standards.
First of all, STEP BACK and examine what has taken place over the last year. In all of the massacres in which guns were involved, it was not politics, robbery or war. They all were caused by singular young mentally disturbed individuals like Adam Lanza. In Arizona, Aurora and now Sandy Hook. So what message does that tell us? Is it guns, knives, fertilizer, gasoline, explosive chemical concoctions, vehicles or airplanes that are the problem and would banning them stop the crazies from killing innocent people. NO, but it makes great political fodder for extreme socialists with an agenda. That agenda is firm CONTROL and REGULATION of personal freedom in the USA. Yes, I do believe that gun security and keeping guns out of the hands of people like Adam Lanza is a priority, but that is as far as this should go.
