stop dicatators

I am a physician specializing in psychiatry. I am board certified in general psychiatry as well as child and adolescent psychiatry. Committed to reducing human suffering, I am asking you to please help in the process of repealing the Second Amendment.

A very dear friend sent me an alarming email stating that Homeland Security is hoarding ammunition – a quantity greater than that used in Iraq. Homeland Security, he stated, uses 15 million rounds of ammunition per year for training, Yet, they are hoarding over 1.2 billion rounds. His message was that, while he supported my First Amendment right to free speech, he did not agree with my call for repeal of the Second Amendment. (The Second Amendment states that the right to bear arms shall not be infringed.) He also added that he supported my First Amendment right to free speech as long as free speech is still allowed. His warning was that the government is preparing for war against the American people. At my request, he provided an internet reference for this information.

Here is my reading of the homeland security story of hoarding of ammo. I went through 21 pages of Google on the subject – 21 pages – and there were many more pages, but I stopped at 21. I did not recognize a single reference as familiar. In these 21 pages of Google, the sources were all unfamiliar with names such as:

Here is the only reference that I recognized;

Based on the only reference that does not ring of end-of-times, I suspect the stories have been propagated by conspiracy theorists since conservative radio host Alex Jones spoke in the fall of 2012 of an “arms race against the American people” and that the government was “gearing up for total collapse, they’re gearing up for huge wars.”

However, a reading of the Huffington Post story is far less sinister than the gobs of conspiracy internet sources that warn of the government preparing to become a dictatorship. The Homeland Security contracts would allow Homeland Security to buy up to 750 million rounds of ammunition over the next five years for its training facilities. But more than 90 federal agencies and 70,000 agents and officers used homeland’s training center last year. The majority of the 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition would be purchased by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the federal government’s second largest criminal investigative agency.

Since 21 pages of Google references were all unrecognized by me, perhaps someone or some organization is flooding the internet and creating an impression of Armageddon. There are people who do this kind of work – professionally – burying any information that contradicts their preferred story. Such yellow internet journalism encourages people to buy guns to protect themselves from the government. This has been an NRA theme for years – buy guns – now supported by more than 21 pages of Google references. I stopped at 21 pages.

Please join me in contacting legislators to begin the process of repeaing the Second Amendment. As long as the Amendment is part of the Constitution – forbidding any infringement on the right to bear arms – it may be difficult to implement gun control. The Supreme Court has twice upheld the Second Amendment as constitutional, which – by definition – it is. The only way may be to actually remove the Second Amendment from the Constitution. Please contact legislators. Stop arms dealers who use fear to sell guns to as many Americans as possible in their pursuit of making money.

Stand up for America against the arms dealers.
