So guns are the problem?
The problems are this. You cannot un-ring a bell. You cannot, un-see something.
What you put into your head has an effect on you, whether you know it or not.
Below, after a brief search I found a few movies that exemplify what I am talking about. Add to this the more than ample amount of violent video games along with the lack of fathers in the household or, children raising themselves with the TV or X-Box and you have the perfect storm for mental health issues.
Hollywood elites (who all have body guards…with guns) don’t want to address the problem so, they want to take away your guns. Less guns equal less crimes. Not true. Criminals will get guns no matter what laws are on the books. Mentally disturbed people will get them as well.
Mental health is the main issue…take a look at some of these movies…these are just a few….

When your flesh Screams 2015
is a gritty independent rape-revenge thriller from Argentina. It was written and directed by Guillermo Martinez, and while this is his first venture into directing, he did previously write the novel that would become the Elijah Wood/John Hurt film, The Oxford Murders. It might take a little while to get where it’s going, but overall this is a fairly impressive debut.
Concrete (schoolgirl in Cement) 2004
In 1988, a 17-year-old girl was abducted for a period of about six weeks in Tokyo. After suffering hideous acts of rape and torture, her juvenile captors murdered her and abandoned her body – in an oil drum filled with concrete. The case inspired further controversy in the form of public debate about the sentencing and rehabilitation of underage offenders, and inevitably became fodder for several brutal exploitation films in Japan.
The movie starts innocently enough with two male friends driving down a dark road, making jokes about each others’ mothers and searching for some legendary house of ill repute that only truckers know about. As they speed along down the road, they aren’t paying attention, and accidentally plow into a woman who had wandered onto the roadway. They get out of the car to check on her and see there is blood everywhere, she is missing a leg, and she’s coughing up blood with the last of her breaths. They panic and get back in the car, leaving her for dead. As their tail-lights fade into the distance, we are left with an ominous feeling as another figure walks onto the screen and drags the dead woman into the woods.

Some of the quotes are from the actual source which I gave credit to. Some of them are mine. This is not literary excellence…this is point that needs to be made.
“I find it interesting that Rape, torture, and other brutal forms of violence is what sells. What does that say about us as a culture?”
Pass this along, share it etc… Me personally, I pretty much have stopped watching TV. For the last several years I watch less and less. If I watch and hour a week, that would be exaggerating in that I don’t watch that much.
I am neither young, or impressionable; but I still protect what I put into my head. Isn’t your sanity worth it?
