Madness in the Streets : How Psychiatry and the Law Abandoned the Mentally Ill by Rael Jean Isaac and Virginia C. Armat (Aug 1, 2000). Madness

My hope is that this will not disintegrate into another hysterical demand for banning guns. My friend Daniel Greenfield says it best:

THE ONLY WAY TO STOP A MAN WITH A GUN IS WITH A GUN

Too late.

I saw TV last night when reporters were speaking about the mom having the three guns the shooter had with him (and I just heard there was another rifle in the car), plus the cops found two more guns at her house so she had 6 guns. It was asked why does a woman need 6 guns? The point was being made that she shouldn't have been allowed to have six guns - like there was something wrong with her to have that many guns.

Will there be a movement afoot to limit the number of guns someone has? I live by myself and have several guns. Some of them would have been used by my husband, but he is no longer on this earth, so now I have these guns.

If it was broadcast to the public that I have more than one gun, would the public think there must be something wrong with me?

I just hated that the mom was dumped on because she had 6 guns. Maybe, when the divorce happened, the husband left some guns there. We don't know and besides she could have 50 guns if she got them legally.

Oh, I forgot another gun I have. It's a long rifle used in the revolutionary war. Very long and uses powder and ball. Several years ago, I had it professionally cleaned. It used to hang over the fireplace. Does that one mean I might use it to shoot someone? The only way I would know how to use that antique, is to use it as a club. It is very heavy.

Endless. Everybody has to say something about it. A lot of something. My Fakebook “friends”, whom I’ve never met, and who are living on some other continent, have to post lists of victims and anti-gun manifestos. A lot of something and then more.
