The USA is clearly the most homicidally psychopathic nation in the “developed” world – if not the whole world.
At least that’s the case if the US President, a large number of Republican politicians, and the NRA are correct.
What other conclusion could be drawn if the never ending string of US gun massacres is the result of mental health issues and not guns?
Is mental health really the reason the USA has a regularity of mass shootings not experienced elsewhere in the developed world?
If we rule out the gun fetishism that makes American gun ownership and availability far exceed any other “developed” nation, and if we accept the frequent claim that mental health issues and not guns are the cause of these mass shootings – what does that say about the mental health of Americans in comparison to the mental health of those everywhere else
Maybe American political authorities should consider the clear implication of their claims before diagnosing their nation.
And maybe the general population should consider the mental health of their politicians – at least of those who continue to kowtow to the gun lobby while the gun massacres continue to kill and maim their sons and daughters, husbands and wives.
