Corpse Coup - Sandy Hook Shooting, Media and Medications
Cowboy Confessional ^ | 12/17/2012 | Guy Smith

Posted on 12/17/2012 10:53:41 AM PST by guyshomenet

Twenty eight corpses hadn’t even cooled before Michael Bloomberg found a TV camera.

(Seriously – it takes about several hours for a human body to reach room temperature, but Bloomberg needed less than three to stammer about what he did not know).

Ignoring my rule for waiting two news cycles for solid facts to emerge, New York Mayor and perpetual odd job Michael Bloomberg sought to make political hay out of lifeless children before knowing even the most basic elements of last Friday’s Sandy Hook slayings. “Not even kindergarteners learning their A,B,Cs are safe,” was one Bloomberg bromide. Then again kids never have been safe in school (the worst American schoolyard slaughter was committed with explosives and not the guns Hiz Horror and religious zealots wish to take from you).

In the absence of information and common sense, prohibitionists began clamoring for gun control and the media chimed in with synchronized laments about America’s “gun culture.” Predictably, Al Jazeera called me to appear on their Sunday evening newscast and when asked about our “gun culture” I politely informed their international audience that what we have in America is a “freedom culture.”

That concept is lost on Michael Bloomberg too.

As predictable as Bloomberg’s bawling was Dianne Feinstein’s threat to do what she does every New Year – reintroduce her failed “assault weapons” ban (her perpetual deceit on this issue earned her a staring position in the very first chapter of my book Shooting The Bull). Dianne’s demagoguery exposes the never ending need for politicians to have a cause, and to play people’s emotional response instead of rationally dealing with evidence. Given that you are eleven times more likely to be beaten to death than killed with Dianne’s so-called “assault weapon”, Feinstein tempts involuntary commitment to a padded cell by promoting the useless.

Maybe Bloomberg can keep her company there.

As the second news cycle evolved, word leaked that Sandy Hook’s shooter had a lifelong personality disorder, allegedly one or another form of autism, and that he was medicated. Autism is occasionally characterized with uncontrolled violent outbursts. Frighteningly, one of the common drugs given to autistics is the same class of medications the Columbine killers were taking, and from which they withdrew cold-turkey in order to amplify their rage. So common is the link between these psychotropic treatments and deadly violence, an entire web site is devoted to listing intersections between meds and massacres.

When one examines mass murder, in the United States or abroad, the common thread is not guns or even a particular variety of firearm. The link is lunacy. A quick review of recent American massacres exposes the root cause:

This little list could go on. Nearly every instance of mass homicide is concocted by a kook. However, the complete story remains masked because our quaint legal system maintains doctor/patient confidentiality even after the patient has littered a schoolyard with bodies. Assembling a forensic mosaic requires public disclosure of all the facts that may be relevant including the perp’s prescriptions. Any right – including the right to life – can be removed with due process. Hence, the medical records of every homicidal maniac (or for that matter, any street thug) must become public knowledge to improve the public’s knowledge. Appropriate legislation can do this, and perhaps we may soon discover that the common denominator is not guns but our failure to carefully treat diseased minds (Michael Bloomberg’s included).

After all, every competent quack asserts that treating the cause beats treating the symptom.

So the truth is that Bloomberg and Feinstein are the ones who cannot be trusted with a loaded gun. Yeah. We kinda figured that. There are fortunately millions of Americans who can fully be trusted with loaded guns. So why project the personality faults of politicians and drug addled lunatics onto the rest of the population ? All the politicians need to do is to provide adequate security. The kind of security 2 trillion dollars a year can afford.

I can’t shake the feeling BS/BO’s friends had something to do with the massacre to try and take away firearms.

Also, Bloomberg was too quick out of the starting gate blaming guns before he knew anything concrete.

Virginia Tech: Murder suspect had come very close to being committed to an asylum

The fact is in most if not all of these cases someone drops the ball. At VA Tech it was the parents who sent their kid to college untreated knowing he had serious problems. In essence, they dumped him. In Aurura the professor treating the psycho ignored his threats. After the shooting the the school sealed those records to protect her.

There are parents in the current case, but not a peep about the father. The mother screwed up in a couple of ways that we know already, although there may be more information forthcoming. The main problem, along with the useless or worse meds, is that the govt lets everyone off the hook with special laws that "protect privacy" and other such nonsense.

I have that feeling too. There are covert and overt possibilities. It is certainly most plausible that another psycho went off spontaneously as they always have and always will. But the MSM seemed to know the mother worked at the school, now there's no record of that. The kid might have popped semi-spontaneously, but why did he choose that school?

I could even have a smidgen of respect for Feinstein and Bloomberg if they actually thought that gun control would work. The fact that they opened their yaps about it right away proves that they didn’t even think before opening their yaps. They behave like children.

From an atheist/humanist point of view,

why is the murder of a bunch of 6 yr old pieces of cosmic dust
by a 20 yr old piece of cosmic dust,
being called “evil” (what’s that mean?) by a bunch of other pieces of cosmic dust?

It is time to open the mental hospitals which were closed in the 1970s.
