AMERICAN PSYCHO

newtown kidsOnce again America has shocked the world with its exceptional penchant for producing lone, lonely, gun-toting, bullet spraying, mass-murdering psychos. The classic misguided American psycho, who takes out his anger on helpless and hapless school children, be it at Columbine or Newtown, or as exhibited in a movie theater in Aurora, is threatening to become as synonymous with the USA as McDonalds and Hollywood.

Such tragic incidents always revive the age-long debate over gun control. America, a country with a sickening love for guns and the right of citizens to carry it, always splits down the middle at times like this (the mother of the Newton was a gun aficionado and owned the three semi-automatic guns used by her son to kill her, 26 others and himself). I’m still waiting to hear the NRA make their usual guttural and irresponsible remarks of “guns don’t kill people, people kill people.”

Yes, guns don’t kill people, but guns give a psychotic and crazy person the ability to wreck maximum and massive damage with minimum effort. Easy access to guns help a misguided or mentally handicapped fellow to play out his or her fantasies at huge costs. The culture of guns makes the American psycho a more dangerous and gory, glory-hunting specimen, who destroys families while making a firestorm exit.

Mental illness is a global phenomenon, but nowhere else in the world is that deadly combination of  easy accessibility to guns and end to end media coverage which fuels this copy-cat crime of unloading magazines on school kids. Gun ownership might have been useful in 1812 but certainly not in 2012.

Adieu beautiful ones.
