With the never ending barrage of mass shootings that we have bore witness to the past several months, all of which the perpetrators have been said to be suffering from mental illness, it makes sense to make “gun violence” an issue of mental health instead of guns. The media is inundating us with a constant stream of gun control on the left and mental health on the right.
It is reasonable of course to want to keep powerful firearms out of the hands of those who are mentally ill, but let me remind you, this is already the law. When you purchase a firearm through a federally licensed dealer they are required to ask if you have ever been adjudicated mentally deficient by a court of law. Like most gun control laws the real problem we have here is a failure to enforce existing laws. I would fully support an initiative that would ensure this already existing law gets enforced correctly however; as we all know this is not their goal. If you were to ask my opinion I would say that the conservatives are making a mistake by allowing the issue to come down to mental health. It makes sense that they would because they can argue that mentally sane people do not commit these kinds of crimes. You have to ask yourself one thing though. Who’s defining mental illness?
This is an issue that needs to be examined carefully as the mental health profession is dominated mainly by liberals who are practicing a school of thought that originated in Frankfurt Germany near the end of WWII. The school was called the Frankfort School of Social Research and was dedicated to fulfilling Antonio Gramschi’s vision of creating “Cultural Marxism” if you will. What many people, even those in the field of mental health, don’t realize is that this school was moved to the United States in the 1930’s. It is my belief that much of what we are witnessing today in terms of political correctness, propaganda and the infiltration of Marxist doctrine into our lives can be traced back to this school. What does this have to do with gun control? I am getting there. Now I want to tell you about an article published in a Psychology Journal called “Political Conservatism as Motivated Social Cognition.” This article is obviously written by a left wing loon with an agenda because it sets out to prove that political conservatives are mentally ill. The author of this article says that we are mentally ill because we are rigid to change and that we tolerate racist attitudes to justify inequality in our society. Do you see where this is going? What is the common perception of conservatives these days? This article was published in 2003. Based on this article it seems reasonable that jumping on board the mental health argument could mean walking into a trap. Wait there is more.
“Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].”
“Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.”
The quotes you see above are from a document known as the 45 Declared Goals of the Communist Party which can be seen here . This list of subversive goals was presented before the congress in the 1960’s and if you pay real close attention to what is going on it seems that they are trying to accomplish these very things now. This is why we have to be careful and be knowledgeable about what laws already exist folks. Don’t think for a minute that they would not enlist health professionals to raise a red flag if they just “suspect” someone may be unstable. This is where the Second Amendment is under full assault, trust me.
I would recommend anyone who takes an interest in what I am saying go pick up a copy of the DSM IV, or wait until the fifth edition is released. The DSM stands for Diagnostic Statistical Manual, and in it you will see that anyone at anytime can justifiably be labeled as suffering from some form of mental illness. One final thing to take into consideration, there is an epidemic in our nation of young children being diagnosed with Bi-Polar disorder as young as age six. The surgeon General says that 1 in five children are on some form of mood altering substance, some kids are on as many as two or three different prescriptions. When you also take into consideration the ease in which regular doctors prescribe medications for depression some serious red flags pop up. Most people do not want to say it but I will. In a generation the Second Amendment will be gone because they have convinced us all that we are mentally ill, and because the medications made us feel good, or made our kids calm down we let them drug us. The evidence is self explanatory. At the rate they are going it is only a matter of time before gun ownership is a mental illness. In fact, I think that is already being suggested.
