Before Discussing School Shootings Any Further… by Morgan Freeberg

Let us dispose, I say, of the following bits of sticky persistent nonsense. I can see here there’s work for me to do because I’m seeing lots of people crying out for “new solutions that will work,” and then answering their own plaintive pleas with a lot of garbage that everyone’s heard lots of times before. Into the breach, I bravely step.

1. This is unacceptable! We have no place for this!

Congratulations on the good intentions. Like any decent, not-crazy person, I wish you luck in what you’re trying to do.

But what I see here, is what it is. More of that dreadful mannerism. The indignant, matronly yard-duty teacher talking down to the dimmest third-grader in the class, letting him know she has had plenty enough of his crap. These shootings are overwhelmingly male-centric, and if we’re going to take a look at something to try to make this the last one, we need to be looking at how we get along with the males…which we haven’t been doing. The message to younger, developing males has been one of: Finger-waggling fists-on-hips nanny nanny boo boo stuff. You’re a pain, my approval decides everything, you can do nothing, you’ll never amount to anything. You are ineffectual, or at least, should be. As the profile of the school shooter develops and sharpens, we consistently see it’s a disengaged male who’s been made to feel ineffective, and this is his way of saying back to society at large, “Oh yeah?”

There is also the problem of accuracy. We do have a place for this violence. We’ve been making one. These shootings happen often at places that have strict anti-gun policies, so that shooters know they won’t run into armed resistance. They don’t want anyone shooting back, and we have been accommodating them.

2. What we’ve been doing up until now isn’t working! When are we going to finally do what we all know we have to do?

What we have been doing is cobbling together in each state an unworkable, byzantine briar patch of zany gun laws. Anti gun activists, like our predator President, like to say stuff like this as if they’re only just now being empowered, potentially, to constrain and curtail lawful gun owners. We’ve already been doing that. That’s what isn’t working.

3. We have to make sure people get the mental health services they need.

Such services are provided by practitioners, and practitioners carry with them a variety of different agendas. To say “more services” and then just leave it at that, is irresponsible, especially now when we know the practitioners have been “treating” kids who start out without anything innately wrong with them. “First do no harm,” remember that? It used to be, as they say, “a thing.” Primum non nocere. The fact of the matter is, too many boys-becoming-men are brought to adulthood without any vision of ever being functional or whole, and “get counseling” when there’s nothing wrong with you, just exacerbates the problem. How about…teach young males what we teach young females? That nobody’s perfect, you can be anything you want to be when you grow up, and you have within you already what it takes to make the world better? You’ll notice it’s popular to say that to girls. And grown women rarely shoot up schools.

4. Toxic masculinity!

The “Morgan Rule” is my invention: “If I’m gonna be accused, I wanna be guilty.” But let’s be clear, I only invented the words to stitch the ideas, which came along way before I did, together into a coherent statement. Right or wrong, this is how people function, and it has always been how people function. If the verdict is already in on me behaving badly, I have no incentive to behave any better. Anti-masculinity activists, you just got done telling a whole generation of males that they’re monsters just because they’re males. Now you’re wondering why they’re shooting up schools. Hmm.

As noted above, our sadly acquired cumulative wisdom continues to reinforce the observation that these are ungrounded, unattached, disoriented boys-becoming-men. Amid all this talk of “sensible gun laws,” can someone please enlighten me with the complete inventory of our recent efforts to ground, attach and orient growing boys? I’m sure the localized and isolated efforts exist here and there, but that’s clearly not enough. What about the widespread, intensive, sustained efforts to ground them, attach them and orient them?

As noted earlier, there’s a lot of social upward-mobility involved in plying encouraging messages onto the female; hardly anybody ever thinks of doing that with males. Make her feel “powerful”; make sure she “thrives.” Also noted earlier, chicks aren’t shooting up schools, it remains a dude thing. Once again: Hmm.

5. Medication to make his brain work right…

Actually, we saw our current spate of these terrible, violent acts after you amateur chemists got super slap-happy with your faddish psychotropic drugs. Some, like me, have been asking the question of how these drug patients should ever learn how to function in society without a constant dosage year to year, day to day…y’all never did get around to giving us a straight answer. Maybe the shooters have finally given us the answer! It’s not an answer I like too much.

There. Now that I have “fact checked” you, let’s go ahead and have our discussion about what’s broken, and how to fix it. Just don’t go swaggering around Beto Style, like you’re the genius who’s finally going to restore sanity and deliver us to peace, love and harmony, after we empower you to do so at long last…when the reality is, we’ve already been doing things your way.

I can’t put into words how scary it is, watching these rotten old ideas dressed up in new activewear, and paraded around under this phony pretense of “Now let’s do something about it” as if we’ve been sitting on the sidelines for years and years just letting these young men shoot people. And now Sparky here is going to offer up his revolutionary new idea: Make everybody else defenseless. It’s scarier than — an active shooter, barging through the door, crazy as a fox, looking for his next target, making eye contact. Because that guy, at least, would be intentionally shooting things.

These assholes are more like a toddler with a flamethrower who hasn’t quite figured out the connection between the hot bright stuff coming out the muzzle, and the trigger he’s pressing.

I can understand coming up with silly stuff in the immediate aftermath of a terrible event like this, letting the emotions gain the upper hand. It’s an emotionally charged thing.

But I can’t excuse it. That’s different from understanding it. The whole phenomenon carries all the tell-tale signs of a societal problem that’s getting worse because it isn’t being handled the right way. And these local-vocals, whether they realize it or not, are just reciting the wrong-way we’ve been handling it up until now, in a different tone of voice. If we conclude they just don’t know what they’re saying, we conclude as charitably as we possibly can, for the alternative explanation is an intent of harm. But either way, they haven’t got the right idea, and they’re still monopolizing the sound space which is something that doesn’t have to happen. That part reflects poorly on everybody else.

    “I didn’t want to post about this, because frankly, it is exhausting. I’ve been having this exact same argument for my entire adult life. It is not an exaggeration when I say that I know pretty much exactly every single thing an anti-gun person can say. I’ve heard it over and over, the same old tired stuff, trotted out every single time there is a tragedy on the news that can be milked. Yet, I got sucked in, and I’ve spent the last few days arguing with people who either mean well but are uninformed about gun laws and how guns actually work (who I don’t mind at all), or the willfully ignorant (who I do mind), or the obnoxiously stupid who are completely incapable of any critical thinking deeper than a Facebook meme (them, I can’t stand).”


  • Mike Austin May 29, 2022, 6:25 PM

    This well answers every argument about “gun control” one could reasonably have. But the issue with the gun controllers has nothing to do with reason. It is about emotions and, well, control. And the gun controllers are not really against guns. They are all for the government agencies possessing firearms. They are absolutely against you possessing firearms.

    There is one other thing. Almost every mass shooting involves young males with similar profiles: psychotropic drugs, broken home, loner, anger issues and so on. Trouble is that there are tens of thousands of young males with just that profile in the US. And how many of them commit shootings? Maybe .01 of one percent? So there is an associated—and absolutely necessary—variable involved as well.

    Since I want no trouble from any 3-letter agency in the early morning, I will stop here. I do not wish to be hounded like Richard Jewell or end up like Randy Weaver or become trapped in some compound in Waco.

    • ghostsniper May 30, 2022, 1:07 PM

      Just think, now that the ukraine thing is basically over and we’re waist deep in the uvalde thing, by the time you get back from idaho we’ll be in a whole new thing. Don’t need a calendar no more, just use the media “things”. Have a safe trip and I can’t wait to read your write up.

      • Mike Austin May 30, 2022, 2:39 PM

        The “powers that be” always have a “new thing” up their sleeve. It will no doubt involve violence done to Americans, especially their children. They will never stop until they are removed from all power and all influence.

        I will endeavor to be safe, though always remembering that “A ship in the harbor is safe. But that is not what ships are made for.”

  • Tom Hyland May 29, 2022, 6:32 PM

    The FBI grooms these freaks and then unleashes them onto the innocent public. Schools, churches, grocery stores, Christmas parades… think of anything wholesome and these evil fucks will launch the freak into the middle of it. Yahooooo! The Salty Cracker dude has revealed that Uvalde Ramos threatened to shoot up his school 4 years ago. The Feds kept his number and fixed this scenario nicely. The Buffalo grocery store freak was in constant communication on a chat board with a retired FBI agent… the conversations shared were anti-black, anti-jewish, anti-everything. Morgan Freeberg needs to take off the horse blinders and take another look at what’s really going down. The sick bastards are groomed by the Feds and they keep basting them until they’re ready, fresh from the psycho oven.

  • ghostsniper May 29, 2022, 6:37 PM

    Run down the link at WRSA and check it out.
    Even I was stunned at the unbelievable amount of incompetency involved at all levels of this fiasco.
    From smoker teachers blocking open fire emergency doors, to battalions of cowardly obese cops, to layers upon layers of lying and dodging blame. This will all get worse. Stay out of the way as it unravels.

    • Terry May 30, 2022, 9:27 AM

      ” This will all get worse. Stay out of the way as it unravels.”

      Sorry to have to tell you this, but there is no place to hide. It will only unravel when the blood of Patriots is running on the dirt. These red flag “events” have been happening for many, many years. WE are the enemy. People like you and I. That is, law abiding citizens.

      The anti-gunners in the population are nothing more than cannon fodder for the goons in LE that hide behind skirts while children are murdered by mind controlled robots.

      The SHTF many years ago and most fools do not know this even as turds land in their faces.

      • Mike Austin May 30, 2022, 10:07 AM

        I have said and written for years that nothing will change until blood flows on both sides. Then—and only then—will things get spicy. False Flags and school shootings just mean that blood flows on one side. That will change, or human nature has ceased to exist.

        The Controllers believe—they actually and truly and fully believe—that they can continue to bleed us until we surrender our guns. They believe—they actually and truly and fully believe—that we gaze upon their ukases and despair. They believe—they actually and truly and fully believe—that we fear them. Their “reality” is not reality. They will learn this in the only classroom that matters. The cost of this lesson will be frightful indeed.

      • ghostsniper May 30, 2022, 5:59 PM

        Didn’t say hide. Said stay out of the way. Be nimble, always ready to move in any direction.
        The gov’t is like a bloated drunk stumbling along, uncaring about anything, not even itself. It will fall and anyone in it’s way is doomed. The free money that supports it is vanishing and when it’s gone. BLAM!

  • Tom Hyland May 29, 2022, 8:13 PM

    I stopped by Gab again and Gavin McInness said this… “The left is determined to make Uvalde about race. OK, let’s try it: a Hispanic man was murdering Hispanic kids while Hispanic cops did nothing. Then, a white guy showed up and ended it.”

    • Dirk May 30, 2022, 3:42 PM

      OUCHE! Your being a lil tough on those meskins ! But then,,

      To think just a bit south its meskins killing meskins, by the thousands. Appears those negro’s, no longer own the franchise!.

  • Jay352 May 29, 2022, 8:53 PM

    I have a great idea. We should pass a law that makes it illegal to kill children with a gun. That will solve it all

    I quibble with the use of the term “anti-masculinity activist”.

    The word is feminist.

    Or, as Rush would say, “feminazi”.

  • MMinWA May 30, 2022, 6:09 AM

    ~97% of mass shootings take place in “gun free” zones

    I don’t know the exact number but some ISDs in Texas allow administrators & teachers to conceal carry. The fact that there are armed faculty in that school is advertised on signage on the outside of the school. There has not been 1 incident in any of these facilities.

    I heard a teacher whining how more guns weren’t the answer, that she didn’t even want to touch a gun and would be afraid to take any courses to teach her how to use one. AS IF that would be required of teachers. Typical straw dog argument lady, no one will force you to arm yourself, that’s not how it works.

  • Missy May 30, 2022, 7:21 AM

    The common denominator in young males shooting up schools or each other seems to be absent or unknown fathers. Has anyone seen the press mentioing this other than the publication below?

  • Tom Hyland May 30, 2022, 7:26 AM

    Here’s a dad crying over the loss of his daughter Amerie Garza.

    Here’s another dad crying about the loss of his daughter Amerie Garza. These crisis actors should share scripts and compare if they want to maintain any sense of authenticity.

    If you move quickly and take a look at this, because the popular posts to Gab change fairly soon, there’s a video comparing these two actors claiming the same daughter. Scroll down and click onto this story. Anderson Cooper is in the screen shot. https://gab.com/

    The video has a large headline asking: “How does Amerie Garcia have a different father on each network?”

    • Bunny May 30, 2022, 9:11 AM

      Let’s not make conspiracy theorists look bad. As Newsweek fact checkers explain:
      “CNN later stated on its website that Alfred Garza was the biological father, while multiple media outlets quoted Angel Garza as Amerie’s stepfather.
      It appears the television interviews simply did not make a clear distinction between the two men’s specific familial relationships to Amerie. It is also not clear whether the two men share the last name because they are related, one of the took the girl’s mother’s name, or if it is simply a coincidence.”

      • ghostsniper May 30, 2022, 1:17 PM

        A media source saying another media source is not lying. LOL
        Maybe a 3rd media source should back up the 2nd one.

        • Mike Austin May 30, 2022, 2:42 PM

          The media tie themselves in knots in the spiderwebs they themselves weave. They look at truth as Dracula looked at garlic.

    William Cooper Warned ‘Deep State’ Would Engineer School Shootings To Disarm Americans

    A book written in 1991 warns of a ‘deep state’ plot to orchestrate mass shootings in schools across America in order to justify the banning of firearms to the public.


    • Mike Austin May 30, 2022, 2:48 PM

      Another prophet unrecognized in his own time. Cassandra was likewise. Alex Jones is likewise. Even Teddy Roosevelt had some words that ring true today:

      “Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people. To destroy this invisible government, to befoul the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of today.”

  • Tom Hyland May 30, 2022, 8:02 AM

    Check out Gab. A VERY interesting video. “How does Amerie Garza have a different father on each network?” These crisis actors should compare scripts if they want to maintain a sense of credibility.

  • Dirk May 30, 2022, 8:22 AM

    Crisis actors, fuck them.

    this morning retired SCOTUS “Breyer”? Is suggesting the repeal of the second amendment!

    I’m always amused that we hire politically motivated stooges to read and interpret the Constitution. While some here think my reading comp sucks, I need no man nor woman to read for me, interpret anything the Constitution says.

    What’s amusing is, “ IT” says exactly what they don’t have the horse power to do. Yet they do it anyway.

    We as a nation have but one important job left to do. That’s capture, convict and hang these cock suckers before god almighty himself.

    While we celebrate our vets, those whom fought and died for this shit show. Is their any doubt our vets are disappointed.

    I’ll end with a fair question.
    When WWII is achieved by DC, are you going to send your people to die for their people. We’re not!

    • Mike Austin May 30, 2022, 8:54 AM

      “Crisis actors”? Of course. Remember those at Sandy Hook? And like the Sandy Hook Elementary School, the Robb Elementary School in Uvalde will be torn down—so said Biden himself. Evidence? What evidence?

      Any judge or politician or media poohbah can say and write whatever he wants about “gun control” and the 2nd Amendment. The problem for the progressives still remains: how to get our guns. In those 5 words lie many evils—up to and including civil war.

      Just think of it: A war with Russia and China and a civil war all at the same time! Every misanthrope would be beyond happy.

      Why “capture, convict and hang”? In times of civil war the middle word can safely be eliminated.

  • Tom Hyland May 30, 2022, 11:07 AM

    Yes… Vox Day can be a real jackass at times. However, the man IS intense and he’s focussing on Uvalde, Texas. https://voxday.net/2022/05/30/brighter-than-a-thousand-suns/

    Let’s see. Today TroodDoh wants to freeze all handguns in Canada, and POTUS is shittalking the 9mm caliber handgun. He says the 9mm is too big for self protection or hunting. That gaslighting SOB left out how good it works against tyranny, which is the logical reason for it in the BillofRights.

    Picture future activeshootersatschool events with a large phlanx of pissed-off, 200 pound dads armed and ready to rush in where LEO fears to go. They’ll need to bring security ties to cuff Johnny Law when they overrun his perimeter.

    • ghostsniper May 31, 2022, 4:44 AM

      It used to be, “First, kill all the lawyers.”, now, it should be, “Kill all the donut skarfers.”
      They just get in the way.
      According to Professor John Lott in “More Guns, Less Crime”, you are 13 times more likely to get shot by an LEO than anybody else. After reading that book you’ll come away thinking the LEO’s are by far the most incompetent and dangerous arm of the gov’t.

    • Tom Hyland May 31, 2022, 8:24 PM

      This is the Alex Jones broadcast for May 31st. Watch only the first 5 minutes, that’s all anyone needs to know about the Canadian mass suicide. Trudeau standing in front of a posse of a dozen masked zombies as he announces there will be no more guns, no more gun sales, no more ammo. Stunning. Would be really amusing to see a lot of Canadians hurriedly crossing over the border like when the Berlin wall went up. But maybe they like this shit. https://www.bitchute.com/video/QLb6tz1KzgTP/

    Mr. Magoo has declared the Constitution and the 2nd Amendment are not absolute. I disagree with the putrid ramblings of the damaged cartoon occupying the stage currently. Could the unleashing of the programmed killer freaks be the deep state’s attempt to intimidate the Supreme Court? A big decision is looming regarding conceal/carry in New York State.
