It’s not mental health issues. It’s not video games. IT’S THE GUNS!!!!

It’s not mental health issues. It’s not video games. IT’S THE GUNS!!!!

Yesterday was a typical Thursday for me. At ten am, I spent almost an hour talking to my therapist. It’s something I’ve done nearly every Thursday for the last year. We’ve been working on a few issues that have been bothering me. It helps!

When I was done, I went on with my day. I didn’t grab an assault weapon and go out to shoot anyone. That’s because it’s not mental health issues that are the causes of mass shootings in America. IT”S THE GUNS!!

A few hours later I made a trip to my local grocery store. They have a room where you can play old-school video games for free. Frogger, Ms. PacMan, Donkey Kong, and Astroids. There’s plenty of violence in those games. It ranges from frogs being smashed by cars to firing weapons at shooting stars. I played all of them for a total of about thirty minutes.

When I was done I went home, had lunch and watched some television. I didn’t grab an assault weapon and go out to shoot anyone. That’s because it’s not video games that are the causes of mass shootings in America. IT’S THE GUNS!!

People in other countries have mental health issues. People in other countries play violent video games. Yet, mass shootings don’t occur in those countries. They only happen here. In the United States of America. Why? IT’S THE GUNS!!

It’s now three days since the massacre at a Texas schoolroom. We’ve heard all sorts of ridiculous excuses for why it happened. They’re all bullshit. There’s one real reason for what happened in Uvalde. There’s only one reason for what happened at Newtown. There’s only one reason for what happened at Santa Fe. There’s only one reason for what has happened at so many other schools over the last few decades.

IT’S THE GUNS!! IT’S THE GUNS!! IT’S THE DAMN GUNS!!

Every five years or so I decide to update this section. I can’t believe I’ve been doing this for close to ten years. The last time I did this I was close to sixty years old. Now I’m just a few months away from the big 7-ZERO. Scary AF!!! I’m pretty sure I won’t be doing an update when I hit 80, but you never know. But until then, lets just be grateful.
