    If tough gun laws stopped the insane or criminals from using guns, the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act passed by the Federal Government in 1968 would have ended all our problems. I’d bet my hat there were never any significant number of prosecutions under that law at all. That law mandated, among other regulatory things, that the insane or criminals could not purchase or possess any firearm or ammunition period.
    That should have solved the evil gun problem IF the guns were really the problem, that is if the mere passing of a law would solve it in the first place!

    The problem is a mental health issue. I believe if the shooter was not mentally deranged, the victims would be still alive and his mother would still have her guns. If there were no guns in her house, he would have found them…criminals will always have guns, no matter what laws are passed. The Tucson shooter was mentally deranged, you have to be to kill innocent people. Mental health issues need to be addressed by our society, BEFORE more tragedies happen!!!

      You are correct on the “problem is a mental health issue”. Now, when people TRY to get things like this taken care of, money comes into play. I’m talking the honest people who realize and try to do what they can before ending up in the poor house.
      Insurance companies do not like to cover “mental” problems. Most families have to shell out thousands of dollars towards the treatment of mental illness, with no way to get reimbursed. Insurance companies don’t consider “mental illness” as a legitimate problem, and deny requests for reimbursement. They have always been that way.
      Yes, the problem is a “mental health issue” but until insurance companies start helping in the treatment of MR’s, the problem is only going to get worse. This is my humble opinion only, but people, check your insurance policy and more than not, mental health issues is on the bottom of the list of “approved” medical approaches. Worse yet, insurance refuses to cover it AT ALL.


    Have you forgotten so quickly the trial
    of the young man in a school over
    there who learned from his video game that
    if he stabbed a school mate
    with a knife without a motive that he couldn’t
    be prosecuted? He used a
    kitchen knife, NOT a GUN ,and stabbed his victim 3
    times piercing the
    heart through both walls so he couldn’t be saved. He and
    his lawyer
    claimed that it was because he had some little known mental
    condition [
    ASSBERGERS DESEASE ] that he had been suposedly cured of.The
    only way to
    prevent a re occurrance of this type of event is to more closely
    the TRASH CD’S that are made available to our youth and the TV shows
    contain such violence. As the movie heroe’s are not available in our

    schools to prevent peoples’ heads from being lopped off by some non

    existant MONSTER. The real monster is the producer and director who make

    the movies. They aren’t interested in teaching your children good

    behavior,only in emptying their pockets of their spare

    WHERE did this all begin? Movie tone News,shown at your local
    climaxed with the Atomic Bomb in 1945? The MOVI E industry believed
    audiences were drawn to WAR movies and scary movies so they ran with
    this genre and made
    endless war and scary movies.
    Frankenstein,werewolf,vampire,creature from the
    black lagoon,Godzilla,King
    Kong, and etc?
    The war was over and they were running out of IDEAS for

    Then the government was faced with the problem of finding jobs
    for the men being discharged from the Army so they created the Roswell Scenario
    of being attacked by Aliens as reason to keep the Army intact.The MOVI E

    industry saw the potential for a totally NEW SUBJECT for exploiting their

    movie audience. Flying saucers,” The day the earth stood still ” all the

    way to ” Star Wars “. With the advance in technology due to the Military

    Area “51 “, color TV,and Communication, the general public became

    subservient to technology. Cell phones,I-pads Lap tops, and etc.. While

    the adults were being mesmerized by all this new technologies,their

    children were being SEDUCED by the NEW gaming industry of Imaginary
    type board games like dungeons & Dragons, followed by video games ,followed
    by EXTREME ACTION GAMES involving
    KILLING, AND ETC. Example: ” Playing Columbine Games ” .

    God gave us
    NOT to kill and
    DESTROY everything we don’t AGREE WITH.

    Are you raising a killer? If
    your son has X-Box ,you might well be!

    Playing Columbine [GAMES ]??? SPONSORED
    BY Cannon,Gerber,& 5 hour energy that promote VIOLENCE,KILLING.BLOOD
    LETTING,With no Moral value! So what, you say?.School is BORING so they would
    rather play games.They LEARN MORE from these games than they learn in
    60 years ago PARENTS blamed bad behavior on RADIO shows and Comic
    books ,both of which ALWAYS showed that GOOD triumphed over BAD / EVIL. Today’s
    GAMES do NOT.It’s all about WINNING the GAME / ELECTION / MONEY ! ! !

    consider myself to be fortunate that, as a child, I had 2 of the
    teachers that anyone could ever hope to have. They read stories
    to us like
    those of Hans Christian Anderson that taught us MORALS and
    rewards for being
    GOOD as well as the consequences for being BAD /EVIL

    Until the people
    insist on knowing the TRUTH ABOUT EVERYTHING, Starting with the

    Putting severe controls on the NEW GAMING INDUSTRY to
    keep our children from being exposed to this VIOLENT GARBAGE might be a step in
    the RIGHT direction. They are creating a NEW form of MENTAL ILLNESS for all that
    are exposed to this perversion of REALITY.

    I PERSONALLY have counseled
    3 teenagers of this type who were sent to jail and youth CONTROL facilities
    before they could perform this type of EVENT as well as many others who were
    already in an Adolescent youth
    Failure on your part to give
    this your most intensive scruteny and total disregard ,in favor of passing Gun
    Control legislation can only result in further incidents of this type ,claiming
    more lives of the innocent at the hands of these Game created MONSTERS in real

    We may be experiencing another case of science fiction
    becoming science FACT. The movie ” Forbidden Planet ” brought to light the
    theory of a civilization who developed technology to the point that it became
    the DESTROYER OF THEIR CIVILIZATION because they overlooked their one tool that
    contributed not only to their successes but also to their downfall. ” MONSTERS
    from the ID ” , ” They could hardly have known what was destroying them “. The
    ID is that portion of the brain / MIND where idea’s and inventions are CREATED
    and CONCEIVED .
    In the movie,the technology they created provided the
    power necessary to create their conceptions from one micro second to the next
    and transport them , physically to any location, making them virtually invisible
    and deadly.
    Our technology hasn’t advanced to the point of providing the
    POWER to transport the MONSTER to any location but it has progressed to the
    point of CREATING the MONSTER by stimulating active young minds with limited
    control through the use of VIDEO GAMES that portray MONSTERS,VIOLENCE,AND DEATH
    for CONTROL.The control is provided by the sights and sounds of the video games. Anyone watching and playing these games for more than 10 minutes can be HYPNOTISED by the game and influenced by the dialog and visual display’s observed during each episode. The words ” KILL THEM ” COULD be applied to almost any situation.

    What is hard to understand appears to be the various levels of mental illness. Without any doubt Lanza was criminally insane, yet he was with it enough not to go to the police station, a firing range or a gun shop and start blasting away. He KNEW they would shoot back ! Almost all of these killers are smart enough to go after someone who cannot fight back, that fact alone proves some degree of thinking on their part involving premeditated murder.
