The violent traumatic event that took place today in Newtown Connecticut is indeed painful for all Americans. I think we can all agree all  violent shootings are heart-felt. These Americans  civil rights were grossly violated. Now the discussion, was this the action of a crazy man? How did a mental ill person get so many guns? All this conversation today and the investigation has just started, there are no real facts other than twenty seven Americans were killed in the AM. Custodial interrogation of the suspect brother and friends has produced little information referring today attack . So why the discussion is he crazy,  or mentally ill. The elements of this crime reads like a problematic person who had lost all hope,wanting to show his pain undertaking a planned attack bringing pain to others. It can be said that a person who kills children is insane. However he may not be clinically insane, there is evil in this world, believe it or not. We as a society must address issues as fact not emotion. America is not going to surrender the right to bare arms no one could have predict the Newtown Shooting. Guns don’t kill people,people kill people. Most people who kill people are not crazy or insane. Crime, emotional incidents, are the real killers, not guns. If there were no guns in the street people still would be killing one another, its world history. Americans who get behavioral health counsel are not killers. Like anyone else in this country they can kill, more often they do not. One reason is they are seeking help to control their emotion, impulsive action. Ninety eight percent of people with behavioral health disorders are not people who take guns and assault members of the greater community. Lets get our facts right before we start the discussion.

  1. Updated police reports state 26 dead, not 27. Still the second most violent act in modern America. American history state further the most violent act in America was the Draft Riots July 13th 1863. Atleast 100 black people were killed in the streets of New York, that’s just history.
