I’m so twisted in the fucking head
Well first of all, I don’t agree that banning guns will resolve the issue. Guns are inanimate objects, this isn’t about the tools, it’s about the wielder. We can ban guns, but those with the desire to hurt others will find a way. We don’t need to ban more, we need to look at the catalysts for these tragedies, the individual psyche’s that compel these nightmarish acts.
What extent of rage must an individual possess to justify the slaughter of children? What amount of pain does it take to twist someone into the cynical beast that ends children’s lives? What grand misconception dilutes an individuals empathy to the point where he feels nothing for anybody? We need to look at the influences, the environments that these individuals live in. We need to look at the people they associate with. We need to look at how they grew up. We need to understand them. There are reasons that individuals come to the conclusion that life has no value.
If we truly desire for these things to stop occurring, we will make the necessary adjustments in this dreadfully impersonal society, a society that lacks intimacy to such a degree that we don’t even know our neighbors are conspiring to kill us. A collective of human beings that pretends to be consistently baffled by the monsters our society conditions people to be. It is our collective responsibility as a human race, as a family, to make sure that nobody has even the slightest desire to behave this way.
