The most effective tool the Anti-Gunners have is the power of perception. If they can re-direct your focus, they can sway public opinion. They do this through the use of terminology like “gun-violence,” “weapons of war,” “assault weapon,” and many other terms that evoke an irrational fear of guns. Along with terminology, the anti-gun crowd will use “statistics” calculated in studies that are done for the purpose of proving a biased anti-gun result. Often times the “studies” are conducted using anti-gun lobbying money, then reported on in “progressive” publications, and verified by left-wing biased “fact checkers.”
Once the base data is constructed and made public, groups like Moms Demand Action and Everytown for Gun Safety, peddle the faulty information to any and every media outlet that will regurgitate it. The narrative that makes its way into your living room on the evening news can be very convincing if you’re not paying close attention. If you doubt the narrative, you can bet the most popular search engine will already have supporting articles waiting for you on the first page of search results. The scary gun-narrative is designed to create fear in the hearts of people who don’t know any better, while urging them to support more gun restrictions. The irresponsible people who push that narrative don’t seem to care about saving lives as much as they want to ban guns, even if it means people will die in the process.
The message is always the same. “We must do something,” but do they really want to do something that actually works to save lives and stop crime? That “something” is always implied to be more gun-restrictions, even though we have thousands of gun-restrictions on the books that have proven to be ineffective at stopping human-violence. What if the anti-gun smokescreen is really a cover-up for a much more nefarious culprit?
In an article by Dan Roberts for Natural News, Dan talks about pharmaceutical drug use often being directly linked to shootings and how mind-altering medications can convince traumatized youth to harm themselves and others.
When referring to a group of mass-killings, Dan Roberts said:
“… all of the perpetrators were either actively taking powerful psychotropic drugs or had been at some point in the immediate past before they committed their crimes.”
A list provided by the Los Angeles Times of the shooters it looked at, clearly reveals that almost every single one was taking Prozac, Paxil, Zoloft, Luvox, Effexor, Xanax, Ambien, Lexapro, trazodone, and/or some other similar mood- and mind-altering drug right around the time when they flipped a switch and went on shooting sprees. This according to Natural News.
“Those focusing on further firearms bans or magazine restrictions are clearly focusing on the wrong issue and asking the wrong questions, either as a deliberate attempt to hide these links, or out of complete and utter ignorance,” Roberts contends.
So why do the Anti-2nd Amendment Radicals refuse to talk about this? Could it be, they profit monetarily from their anti-gun position? Could it be they really do believe that they can have their Socialist-Utopia by disarming their own fellow citizens? Could it be they really are ignorant to the truth. Or could it be, they would be embarrassed to admit that they have been wrong about the actual causes of human-violence the entire time?
Regardless of their motivation, which could be a combination of all the above, the gun-grabbers have a responsibility to the families who have lost loved-ones in these avoidable mass-killings. While the Anti-2nd Amendment Radicals perpetuate the gun-lie, ignore the real causes of human-violence and work hard to disarm law-abiding citizens, lives are lost. The question is, are the gun-grabbers in any way responsible for these deaths? The anti-gun media and the dishonest anti-gun lobbying groups have a responsibility to tell the truth. In the meantime, it is the responsibility of those who see through their lies, to call them out.
