As usual, the Captain has this pretty well locked down.
After a shooting...a consistent and dangerous narrative has
emerged—an explanation all-too-readily at hand when a mass shooting or
other violent tragedy occurs: The perpetrator must have been mentally
... Jeffrey Swanson, a professor of psychiatry at Duke University. “I say
as loudly and as strongly and as frequently as I can, that mental
illness is not a very big part of the problem of gun violence in the
...The overwhelming majority of people with mental illnesses are not
violent, just like the overwhelming majority of all people are not
violent. Only 4 percent
of the violence—not just gun violence, but any kind—in the United
States is attributable to schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, or depression
(the three most-cited mental illnesses in conjunction with violence).
In other words, 96 percent of the violence in America has nothing to do
with mental illness.--Quoting The Atlantic
And the Captain has the rest of the story, too; one that the Therapeutic Society will not tolerate:
...The problem is always world and life view, or presuppositions. If you
reject the Biblical account of the origins of evil and the state of
mankind, you have to have another explanation. Psychiatry serves that
role, with the mental health physician playing the village witch doctor
for the CLEO...
Why is that 'witch doctor'/Chief Law Enforcement Officer line there?
...for the CLEO to decide who gets to have concealed handgun permits. and recommending what kind of laws we have on the books....
Yes, they will be happy to declare you 'psychologically unfit' to keep and bear arms.
