When it comes to mass shootings, we’re not 100 percent sure what kind of sickness in the human mind pushes these people to kill as many of their fellow humans as possible. What we do know is that at least some of these killers seem to be attracted to the fame associated with these types of killings. The Virginia Tech shooter referred to the Columbine killers as “martyrs,” for example. The Sandy Hook killer maintained what has been described as a “score sheet” during his preparation for slaughter.
In other words, it seems that on top of a great deal of anger, these individuals want to be famous.
That’s why we don’t name these murderers here at Bearing Arms. While it’s just a small drop in the pond, we still hope it’ll catch on.
Unfortunately, it seems far too many people embrace the ramifications of making these guys famous.
“What is going on here?” asked Fox News host Laura Ingraham on Thursday night’s “The Ingraham Angle.” “What gives with these women? What kind of issues do they have? It’s mind-blowing.”
Serving up some answers were two guests, forensic criminologist Ron Martinelli and forensic psychiatrist Carole Lieberman.
“These are clearly women that are off balance,” said Martinelli flatly. “They probably share some of the behavioral characteristics of people like [the killer]. And they tend to become infatuated with people who do horrible things.”
“ [The killer] is the baddest of the bad. He’s what I call a ‘lethal lover,’” said Lieberman, author of “Bad Boys: How We Love Them, How to Live with Them, When to Leave Them.” “The women who are attracted to him have had the most dysfunctional relationships of all with their fathers that have made them feel unlovable.”
In other words, they have daddy issues. Got it.
Meanwhile, take a look at this kid. It’s unlikely he’s ever been showered with affection from the opposite sex. I’m sure he may have had it occasionally, but nothing like this.
So now he’s getting adoration for his act. He’s getting affection. Girls are sending this guy love notes and selfies of themselves looking all sexy apparently, all because they find this guy irresistible after he gunned down 17 high school kids.
Now, allow me to ask you what you think the ramifications of this just might be?
If you don’t think that this may encourage the next school shooter, you’re delusional. While the media are telling us all about how we need to curtail our Second Amendment rights for the betterment of society, they’re also reporting something like this, something that may open up a sliver of hope for that lonely kid out there who has no companions, let alone a significant other, and is angry as hell.
But that particular sliver of hope isn’t a good thing. It’s not really hope. It’s a spark that can ignite a whole lot of hatred that may be deep within the soul of someone.
Even reporting this could well encourage that next school shooter.
Now, unlike the mainstream media, I’m not about to call for the curtailment of anyone’s rights. However, I will point out that while most gun owners use our firearms responsibly, the media is less responsible with its First Amendment protections.
