The Emotional Economy of Mass Murder

September 4, 2019

Mass murderers know something most of us don’t know. These murderers figured out that they can break the rules. They know they can do anything they want..for a while. No one will stop the murderer until people with guns show up. Murderers get those 11 minutes to kill at will. Murderers enjoy the thrill of having their way with innocent people. They love the last free acts they will ever have. Murderers are thrilled by the notoriety that they get from the mass media..even if they never live to see it.

Murderers know that the rest of us obey the rules while they don’t have to. They know we are disarmed in “gun-free” zones. After a mass murder, these killers figured out that we will only make more rules.

Here is what murderers know.. and what most of us don’t want to know;

The next mass murder is already planning to break those new rules.

Go ahead and make more laws. We have 23 thousand firearms regulations already. Make all the new rules you want. For a mass murderer, rules are made to be broken, the more the better.

That is the open secret of the mass murderer. That is also the guilty secret of the politician. Both of them know that new rules won’t stop the next mass murder. Neither of them care. Mass murder puts them on camera, and both the murder and the anti-gun politician are in it for fame.

Stopping the next murderer is up to us. Government can’t do it, though politicians will lie to us and say they can. No government on earth has the power to stop mass murder; neither the US government nor any government anywhere around the world. That fact is staring us in the face. We have mass murder in China and Mexico, and they are “gun-free” countries where honest citizens are disarmed. Nowhere is safe because rules don’t matter to mass murderers.

Law enforcement won’t be there when the next murder starts. You and I own those minutes until the police arrive. Those are the new rules we live by.

Many of us want politicians to tell us
that the next rule will fix everything.
It won’t.

Many of us will pretend that the next rule will make us safe. In fact, the next rules will probably make things worse rather than better. The next rules will make it easier for the mass murderer to kill more people. The reason is simple. Only honest people follow the rules. Disarming more of the good guys makes it easier for the bad guys to kill. That unavoidable truth is as simple as it is unpleasant.

  • Go ahead and make your stores into “gun-free” zones. Murderers don’t care about plastic signs.
  • Go ahead and make your schools and churches into “gun-free” zones where honest citizens are disarmed. Murderers don’t care about your rules.
  • Go ahead and pretend that more ink on paper will stop a murderer with a gun. That is exactly what murderers want.

Do what you’ve always done after a mass murder. No one will stop you. You have that freedom, but before you relax and think that a new rule made you safe..

That sigh if relief you thought you heard..
was the next mass murderer laughing at our rules.

I want you to be safer rather than to feel safe. Learn the difference. Millions of us learned that bitter truth and choose to protect our family until the police arrive.

Please stay safe.
