Well, kinda, sorta.
I was watching the news. There was Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Whackjob Five leader speaking at a press conference. Now, most of what she said was absolute typical liberal snowflake garbage. I won’t bore you with that since it all belonged in the toilet.
What I did agree with her though was when she said we needed to build more hospitals and mental health facilities. Now, she was saying she’d pay for that by building less prisons. I don’t agree with that. But we DO need more mental health facilities.
Most of you probably never heard of what happened out here in the desert over the past week or so. We actually had a mass shooting, and some people that we know were killed in it. They had nothing to do with the shooter, it was apparently just someone who went off and went nuts and started shooting people at random. But still, the whole thing boils down to the fact that had there been some sort of mental capacity or mental test, like a physical at a doctor’s office, we may have been able to avoid this catastrophe.
So, in the short term, I’ll agree with AOC, and I’ll even take it one step further. My suggestion is that we build more mental health facilities, and everyone in the United States gets tested on an annual basis. Yes, you’d end up with some sort of “I’m sane” card to carry around with you, but my hunch in saying that is that everyone would be tested, and those found not to be sane, or having mental issues could get the help they need. This would at least do a better job at keeping mentally unstable people off the street, and certainly away from guns.
Let’s get this straight. It’s not the gun that is doing the shooting. It’s the mentally ill person that doesn’t have any respect for human life. That is the cause of all of this. And all of the “gun laws” in the world won’t stop someone that is hell-bent on taking someone’s life. They will figure out a way to do it.
And there would be no exemptions for this either. Everyone, including the President of the United States on down would be subjected to a strict and rather long mental acuity and saneness test. So would the members of Congress. Anyone found not measuring up to standards would be immediately suspended for 90 days from whatever job they held, so they could be re-evaluated and it could be determined if they need further attention or not.
You also couldn’t choose the mental health professional that would be doing your examination. That would stop Joe Biden say, from going to his big time donor who happened to be a psychiatrist, and get it done on the QT without any real work being done. You would be assigned to a medical practitioner at random to insure as complete and thorough exam as possible.
If you’re looking at what should be the next step in trying to solve all of the senseless mass shootings out there, this is it. It has nothing to do with limiting magazine capacity. It has nothing to do with bump stocks, or types of guns. It starts with the space between the shooter’s ears. That’s where the problem is. And realize, not everyone is going to be healed or curable. It’s just the way it is.
Another problem solved. And the hits just keep on coming!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
