… [mass murder] is not an American problem, it is a universal problem, but with a common factor: The attacks occur in public places where civilians are banned from carrying guns.”

“With just one single exception, the attack on congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords in Tucson in 2011, every public shooting since at least 1950 in the U.S. in which more than three people have been killed has taken place where citizens are not allowed to carry guns.”

Although largely underreported, Satanic subculture and so-called devil worship has been a factor in numerous other mass killings, including the recent Batman shooting massacre.

An Aurora Massacre Takes Place Every 10 Days in Chicago, Gun-Control Capital                 of the United States

“... the [“Joker”] shooter at the theater in Aurora, Colo., had other theaters between his home and his ultimate target that he could have chosen.  Yet, the one he picked was the one that publicly proclaimed itself gun-free… in other school shooting incidents, such as at a high school in Pearl, Miss., the shooter’s spree was cut short by the presence of an armed citizen able to shoot back… and it was the guard’s presence [at Columbine High School in 1999] and the resistance he and others offered that kept the carnage less than it might have been [there].

… any person who would have shot James Holmes [in Auroroa] and stopped the massacre would, themselves, have been arrested as a criminal!  In Aurora, Colorado, it is illegal to stopa massacre.

We should ban fertilizer.  Tim McVeigh used fertilizer to build a bomb.  We should also ban airplanes.  The 9/11 terrorists used airplanes.

Mental Illness…

At least fourteen recent school shootings were committed by those taking or withdrawing from psychiatric drugs… [and] Between 2004 and 2011, there have been over 11,000 reports to the U.S. FDA’s MedWatch system of psychiatric drug side effects related to violence. These include 300 cases of homicide…

…Untreated mentally ill individuals are now responsible for at least… half of the mass killings such as those at Virginia Tech, Tucson, Aurora, Newtown, and the Washington Navy Yard.

There are unconfirmed reports (from an uncle and a neighbor) that Adam Lanza was medicated at the time of the attack, perhaps taking the anti-psychotic drug Fanapt.  If that turns out to be the case, he will join a dismaying  list  of school shooters and other cold-blooded murderers who were taking or withdrawing from various psychotropic drugs.

Two first-degree relatives of the Las Vegas massacre perp Paddock were                       highly likely psychopaths
That increases the probability of psychopathy in the perp

Paddock prescribed drug linked to violent outbursts
Use of anti-anxiety medication can sometimes trigger aggressive behavior,                psychotic experiences

The genetics load the gun, personality and psychology aim it, and experiences [and/or psychoactive drugs] pull the trigger, typically,” Clemente said. He pointed out that Paddock’s father — a bank robber — was diagnosed a psychopath.

Investigators reportedly believe Las Vegas gunman had undiagnosed mental illness

“If firearms didn’t exist, Holmes had the time, resources, and intelligence to plot something even worse.  Timothy McVeigh killed hundreds using nothing more complicated than fuel and fertilizer.  Julio Gonzalez murdered 87 with a dollar’s worth of gas.  Evil is difficult (sometimes impossible) to thwart beforehand.

In 2011, Connecticut was ranked the fifth-toughest state by the pro-gun control Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.

“… there have already been a whole pile of [gun control] proposals [following the Newtown massacre], and they all uniformly have one thing in common: they wouldn’t have prevented the killings in Newtown.”

[ASND wonders how many of those who immediately called for additional gun control following the Newtown, Connecticut massacre saw these stories, published the very same day as the Connecticut story (well, published everywhere but in the mainstream, liberal media, that is). ]

“A knife-wielding man slashed 22 children and an adult at an elementary school in central China on Friday, state media reported, the latest in a series of attacks on schoolchildren in the country.”

A man angered by a court ruling in the murder of his daughter rammed a car loaded with a gas tank and firecrackers into a group of middle schoolers, injuring 13 in the country’s latest attack on students.

[ ASND also wonders how many of those people saw this story, also published the same day as Connecticut:      Four people set on fire during assault in North Denver http://www.thedenverchannel.com/news/local-news/several-people-set-on-fire-during-attempted-robbery-in-north-denver ]

[ASND wonders if those people also call for more laws against knives, cars and gasoline since everyone knows people don’t kill people, knives and gasoline do.]

[ASND also wonders why American school systems aren’t willing to be more like   Israeli  schools , which provide protection FOR young lives rather than “protection” (prophylactics)  against them.]

Last week’s shootings [in Newtown, CT], which killed [20 children and 7 adults], demonstrated once again the folly of ‘gun-free zones,’ which attract and assist people bent on mass murder instead of deterring them.

http://reason.com/archives/2009/11/11/the-folly-of-unilateral-disarm

[For those who won’t bother to actually read it, that story wasn’t actually about the Newtown, CT massacre, which was “last week” as of this writing.  That article was orginally about  another  massacre   (on a U.S. military base, no less) which, like the Newtown massacre, could have been greatly limited had there been armed adults in the building (as there are in  Israeli schools ).   It probably comes as no surprise to learn that firearm-trained teachers are prohibited from carrying those weapons of mass protection into government schools. But how many of you knew that trained U.S. soldiers are also not allowed to carry their own weapons on military bases?]

Guns actually SAVED many people’s lives — including children’s lives — in Newtown, CT.
