Mass Murder Rampage AGAIN

22 Jul

12…12…12…KILLED with maybe more to come out of the other 58 WOUNDED in Friday’s Mass Murder Rampage in Colorado, the same state that was the site of the 99′ Columbine HS Mass Murder Rampage.

What can be done about these senseless rampages? First, before I walk off that cliff, my prayers go out to the wounded and to the victims’ families/friends/co-workers.

If you refer back to my 4/16 post entitled, “Anniversary Time for Massacres”, I proposed some ideas there. But today, I will provide more ideas to stop this type of horrific activity.

So in the 4 most infamous massacres since 99′: Columbine, Virginia Tech (07′), Fort Hood (09′) and now Aurora, CO, what are the common threads running thru these horrors?

First off, all of the killers were most likely suffering from mental illness. Yea, of course, Darron, you have to be “insane” to carry out these mass murders. Well, well, “insanity” is not the point. The point is: all of these mass murders could have been possibly prevented if the killers’ mental illnesses would have been treated properly and earlier.

When the alleged Aurora killer dropped suddenly out of college and started to isolate, where was the help? There was none. Today, people are too busy to be bothered by some guy who suddenly appears to have a major behavior shift. Then think: he is a smart guy, he will get over it. He doesn’t need my help. Oh, guess what? He needed help (BAD). Now, he is alleged to have killed 12 innocent humans, including a 6 y/o child who had her whole life ahead of her.

Second, why do we (citizens of this great country) allow a person to purchase 6,000 rounds of ammunition? Why does he need with that much ammunition? Let’s see…shoot up a movie theater full of innocent people. Next question, why does a “responsible” person need to have an assault rifle, shot gun and two pistols? That’s not responsible, that’s insane. Mr. Holmes walked into that movie theater on Friday night with an assault rifle fitted with a drum clip of 100 rounds. Why do we allow drum clips capable of 100 rounds out the door? Well, the easy answer is the National Rifle Association. The more challenging answer is the second amendment of the Constitution.

Have you ever read the Second Amendment in detail? Probably not. I have, and the whole essence of it was (needs to be updated) to allow Americans (after the American Revolutionary War) to possess weapons in case the government needed to form militias again to protect its interests. Our early brothers and sisters didn’t have the Defense Department with its zillions of dollars being spent on nuclear weapons we don’t need and defense systems that won’t work so they needed the informal structure of militias in place. Well, fast forward 236 years and we now have militias that stockpile weapons (because they can) and try to carry out their hate agendas like against homosexuals and other minority groups, including our President.

Lastly, I get really tired of hearing NRA members spew out that “Guns don’t kill people, People kill people.” Yes, people kill people because they CHOOSE to use weapons like an assault weapon with a drum clip loaded with 100 rounds to mow down innocent, I repeat innocent people who are just trying to go to school, go to work or even watch their favorite movie.

In 1994, a Republican controlled Congress passed the assault weapons ban, banning over 19 assault weapons like the AK-47 but the ban expired during W.’s term and here we sit, once again scratching our heads. Why does this keep happening? In 90′, 78% of Americans wanted stricter gun control. Fast forward to 04′, and 54% wanted stricter laws on the books and just last year, only 42% want you know what. What happened during those 21 years? Well, first gun control is a “loser” on the National Political scene. Second, the NRA and its sponsors have done a “bang” up job of making people think they will be safer with an assault rifle with a drum clip strapped to their body.

I once again plea to stop this INSANITY, you may be the next INNOCENT victim. God Bless
