Another day, another violent attack in America. The next day, people are protesting the NRA. Typical mindset when there’s a shooting.  I almost refrained from talking about this subject because it’s typical when something like this happens because it seems the argument again is more gun control or the banning of firearms in general.

At least some people are taking the advice of better mental healthcare. Which, needs to happen in schools. It starts with the kids and if we are to stop these violent attacks we need to start with the new generation of society. Additionally I think for gun owners and people who buy guns need to have regular visits with the shrink because well.. It seems if we are going to continue selling guns on the market and if we are to prevent shootings we need to find out why these people are violent in the first place. That may piss off some if not many gun owners but if they want to keep their guns, this might be the best way. I mean unless they got a better idea that doesn’t include arming teachers and students with guns.

Of course better security measures should be in place and 19 year olds shouldn’t have access to guns in the first place but when responsible gun owners are being targeted as a gun addict or whatever we need to come up with ways to prevent these killings.

Its amazing how people are so quick to blame the gun for this tragedy. It’s like the gun walked into the school and started shooting people. Or the gun possessed the guy and made him shoot people. But what’s to stop psychopaths from using a bomb or a knife?

While guns are easy to murder a whole lot of people and by design it’s a weapon for murder, however the original intention is and should be for defense. When you live out in the forest somewhere where their are dangerous animals, weapon of choice is a gun. Even an automatic weapon is much better as some animals may be bold in attacking despite being shot at. Not entirely sure that is the case and may be overkill. However most of the time automatic weapons are only told as a weapon of murder in the news.

If school massacres only had knife attacks I wonder what would people say about that. What would they do? Would they make people register the knife? Would they try to ban them? While you wouldn’t bring a knife to a gunfight, in some cases knife attacks can be just as deadly as a shooting.  Knife attack in China

So while people are protesting the NRA a psychopath is planning his next move. Whether by a car, knife or a bomb it doesn’t need to be a gun to commit mass murder.

Bottom line is America and even in other countries mental health help is extremely poor. In fact mental illness is encouraged. When you have males acting as if they were women and people have tide pod eating contests we really need to evaluate our mental health facilities and resources. As I said it should be mandatory for kids to be checked out for their mental health like they get checked for physical health.

With more research it might be easier to figure out why people kill other people. Then again when we have wars with other countries it’s really not hard to figure out why people are with murderous intent and why guns are the choice of these murderers.
