Do you remember when America was a place where you could attend a public gathering without having to worry if a sociopath was going to set off a bomb or start wildly shooting people? Do you remember when America was a place where you could walk down the street without having to worry that a vicious pack of teens might attack you for no reason whatsoever? Do you remember when America was a place where you could leave your car unlocked, your house unlocked and your garage open without having to worry about thieves? Well, only old timers are likely to remember a time when you could leave your front door unlocked, but it was once like that in America. Over the past 50 years America has fundamentally changed. Once upon a time you could trust just about everybody, but these days it is difficult to find anyone that you can truly trust. We are literally surrounded by psychopaths and sociopaths as we approach the edge of societal collapse. The truly frightening thing is that we are watching society break down rapidly even though economic conditions are still relatively good. If this is how bad things are right now, what are they going to look like after the economy collapses and people become really desperate?
I was enjoying a peaceful morning today until I came across this headline: “7 dead, including shooter, at Wisconsin Sikh temple“.
What kind of a person does such a thing?
So far there does not appear to be any motive for the shooting. These were people that were just peacefully gathering at a Sikh Temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin on Sunday morning. They weren’t bothering anyone.
But some very twisted individual decided to walk in there and start randomly shooting people.
The mainstream media is describing the shooter as “a white male in his 30s“.
By the time it was all over, seven people (including the shooter) ended up dead and three others were wounded.
But this was not the only incredibly shocking incident in the news today.
Also on Sunday, a man walked into an ICU at one hospital in Ohio, pulled out a gun and shot his wife of 45 years.
Who does that?
Who would walk into a hospital and shoot someone that you have been married to for 45 years?
Of course the mainstream media is going to use examples such as these as reasons why we need to ban guns. But as I wrote about the other day, the truth is that guns actually help prevent crime. U.S. cities with the strictest gun control laws also have some of the highest rates of gun violence. The criminals are always going to be able to get guns.
