Since the school shootings on Friday, the calls for bans on “assault weapons” or automatic weapons have reached a crescendo, and I can’t help but wonder if any of these so-called journalists have a clue what they’re talking about.

CNN anchor Don Lemon said, “We need to get guns and bullets and automatic weapons off the streets. They should only be available to police officers and to hunt al-Qaeda and the Taliban and not hunt elementary school children. …

“Yeah – yes, we need to address mental health, but mental health in this particular issue, let’s not get it twisted, is a secondary issue. If someone who has a mental issue did not have access to guns that should only be available in war zones, we would not be dealing with this.”

He was far from being the only journalist to abandon objectivity and lecture the country.

MSNBC’s Ed Schultz tweeted: “Write all the feel good laws you want, it’s the confiscation of these types of weapons that counts and will have an impact. …Why should anyone own an assault rifle ? We need to be realistic about the 2nd amendment..society has changed, views have changed.”

Another TV journalist was going on about “armor-piercing bullets.” I don’t think I’ve heard anything yet to indicate Adam Lanza actually used armor-piercing rounds.

All this blather about automatic assault weapons and armor-piercing rounds leaves me scratching my head.

I’m not exactly a gun enthusiast, but I’m a strong supporter. As far as I’m concerned, the Second Amendment exists because a person has a God-given right to defend himself, his family, friends, home, state and country, using anything up to and including a rocket launcher, if that’s what it takes.

The big, scary gun the liberals are most excited about is Lanza’s Bushmaster rifle, supposedly an “assault weapon.” From what I understand, it’s a .223-caliber weapon, which is either the same or very similar to the .22-caliber rifles I learned to shoot with when I was a Boy Scout.

While a .22 can be fatal, it’s either the smallest or one of the smallest bullets around. We’re not talking about a cannon. The  Marine sergeant who taught us young Scouts referred to them as “squirrel guns.”

The Bushmaster is also a semiautomatic, which has some speed advantage, but even old bolt-action rifles carry multiple rounds and can be fired pretty fast by someone who is experienced. Again, we’re not talking about a machine gun, despite the current misinformation about automatic weapons in the Connecticut shootings.

Making all the “assault weapon” talk doubly silly is a report that Adam Lanza may have left the Bushmaster in his car’s trunk, using the two pistols he carried in the murders.

But all this talk about gun bans is just beside the real point, which is that Lanza was off his rocker, immersed in a solitary world of violent video games and almost no real human contact when he decided to act out his fantasies, or take revenge, or cook up some other rationalization for what he did.

No weapon  laws will stop a madman.

I recall in 1995, when veteran Shawn Nelson snapped, stole a Patton tank from the National Guard armory and went on a rampage down San Diego freeways before being killed by police. I think he broke a few laws in the process.

In 2004, Marvin Heemeyer, a welder having a zoning dispute with Granby, Colorado, officials armored a bulldozer and tore down the town hall, the mayor’s house and other buildings before killing himself. The law didn’t stop him.

Timothy McVeigh used a truckload of fertilizer. The law couldn’t stop him until after the fact.

It’s not the weapons, it’s the people who commit mass murders who are the problem. Until we recognize that, we won’t ever find a real solution to tragic acts like those in Connecticut.

The ‘red pill’ and its opposite, ‘blue pill,‘ are pop culture terms that have become symbolic of the choice between blissful ignorance (blue) and embracing the sometimes-painful truth of reality (red). It’s time for America to take the red pill and wake up from the fog of apathy.
