Like clockwork, the conspiracy theories are flying around about an elaborate setup in order to take the guns away from the citizens. I’m a bit unique from the standard conspiracy theorists in that I’m sort of okay with a little gun control. A little gun control. I don’t think more background checks is a damnation against our Second Amendment rights, but I wouldn’t want to see a full-on ban either. I’ve read a decent amount on both sides of the issues, and I do find it necessary for the public to have the ability to own guns, but sometimes the nuts just have too easy access to this stuff. Some of the arguments against gun control that come from the ‘conspiracy’ side of the fence get lost in too much paranoia, as was Alex Jones argument on Piers Morgan last year (see my post where I fact-checked the show).
Anyhow, here’s what we’ve seen so far; Alex Jones is going off on gun control:
And you know what, he makes a decent point. D.C. was one of the most strict areas for gun control at one time (they had that ban on handguns until 2008), and it’s true that time will tell what wacky agenda these shooters had. Infowars.com has several articles going on this D.C. shooting, including some theories on the removal of semi-autos.
TheSmokingGun has an article about one of the alleged shooters:
Alexis was arrested in mid-2004 after allegedly firing several shots into the tires of a vehicle parked in front of his Seattle, Washington home, according to a police report. Alexis told cops that he had perceived that the car’s owner–a construction worker from a nearby job site–had “mocked him.”
Police recovered a Glock .45 caliber handgun and ammo that Alexis stored in his bedroom in a residence owned by his grandmother. After waiving his Miranda rights, Alexis told investigators that he believed the victim had “disrespected him” and that perception resulted in a “‘black out’ fueled by anger.” Alexis added that he did not remember pulling the trigger until 30 minutes after the shooting.
Alexis, a New York City native, told police that he “was present during the tragic events of September 11th, 2001 and how those events had disturbed him.”
In a subsequent interview with Alexis’s father, the man told cops that his son had experienced “anger management problems” that family members “believed associated with PTSD.” Alexis’s father “confirmed that his son was an active participant in rescue attempts of September 11th, 2001.”
Alexis, who had a Washington State concealed pistol license, was charged with illegal discharge of a firearm and property damage. The disposition of those counts remains unclear.
One thing that I am surprised not to see thus far, is the Illuminati associations with the Washington D.C. area in general. Dan Brown wrote the novel The Lost Symbol, the sequel to The Da Vinci Code and it takes place in D.C. which is absolutely riddled with Illuminati and Freemason symbolism. In fact, about three miles from the Naval Yard is the 33 degrees Scottish Rite of Freemasonry temple:
D.C. is also known for the bird’s eye view map which features a distinct owl; symbolizing the occult worship of Moloch:
Here’s David Icke on D.C. and its symbolism:
The Associated Press reports that Alexis, “had been treated since August by the Veterans Administration for his mental problems,” which included paranoia, sleep disorder and hearing voices in his head.
According to his father, Alexis suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder as a result of his harrowing experiences during his involvement in rescue operations on 9/11.
SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor) drugs are the most common form of treatment for PTSD, with Paroxetine being one of the most prescribed medications for this purpose. Paroxetine was also listed as the number 3 top violence-causing drug by the Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP).
The study, which is based on FDA figures, reveals that antidepressants Pristiq (desvenlafaxine), Paxil (paroxetine) and Prozac (fluoxetine), all appear in the list of the top ten violence-causing drugs.
We also know that Alexis “blacked out” during a violent confrontation in 2004 when he shot out the tires of vehicles belonging to construction workers parked next to his home. Black outs are also a common side effect of SSRI drugs.
We’ve also learned that Alexis had “anger management” issues. SSRI drugs including Paroxetine, Prozac and Zoloft are also routinely prescribed to treat anger issues.
