CBS 48 Hours Saturday Night Gun Control Propaganda

Last night on CBS television the show 48 hours ran a special report about the school shootings in Newtown, Connecticut. While much of the show was based on honoring the victims both young children and teacher heroes -the program began to veer off course to promote more gun control in the United States.

While I agree no private citizen should be allowed to own an assault rifle, the idea of increasing gun control in the United States would not end there. Political partisans who live in the extremes are never satisfied with winning just one battle. Instead, after banning assault rifles they would begin to chip away on the rest of the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

I've made it quite clear in recent blog posts that the real reason why these shootings of innocent victims continue, is based on mental illness and a lack of understanding and treatment of that disease. No one of sound mind, would ever even think about entering an elementary school to murder six and seven year old children unless they were mentally ill.

That said, on a daily basis, Americans are being preached to by political ideologues - who claim to hold the solution to this tragic problem. Trust me, gun control or putting prayer back into public schools will not even begin to address this problem. This is a mental illness issue that should be dealt with by the U.S. government.

Shame on the CBS TV news-magazine show "48 Hours" for playing on the emotions of devastated Americans after Friday's school shootings in Connecticut in order push their political agenda of more gun control in the United States of America. Conservative Republicans are just as wrong when they insist on no gun restrictions, either. I've said it before and I will say it again, the real problem is mentally ill people who have not been treated for psychological problems.
