The irrational fear of guns, perpetuated by the anti-gun left, has worked its way into our society in such a way that causes people to take extreme action on situations that exist only in their minds.

Often times, when guns are the topic of discussion, those of the anti-gun mindset, believe their fantasies over the stark contrast of what is actually occurring in the real world. It’s so bad that the mere photo of a gun, a Pop-Tart chewed into the shape of a gun or someone making a hand gesture that looks like a gun, has become cause for alarm among those who have this condition. These irrational views are perpetuated by gun-fear-groups like Moms Demand Action and other anti-gun lobbying organizations.
The knee-jerk reaction to anything gun-related comes from people who have been cultivated, to fear guns, through concerted propaganda and rhetoric. The people who fall for this type of fear-campaign seem to be very illogical, irrational and emotionally driven when it comes to the topic of guns. These are often people who have never even held a gun in their hands. Critical thinking gets thrown out the window in exchange for dangerous, reactive, emotion.
In Colorado, 16-year-old Loveland High School Junior, Nathan Myers, was kicked out of school and told not to come back until the school was able to “conduct an investigation,” into what they called, a threatening Snapchat by the student. The short video consisted of footage of firearms in their cases, that Nathan took during an innocent day of shooting with his family. The guns were very well-kept and frankly not a bad collection. However, those in charge at the school, decided that this was a threatening video and Nathan should be investigated, causing Nathan’s Father to prove his innocence to the Police. The student who reported the Snapchat video claimed to be scared that Nathan would “shoot up the school.” This is the result of the anti-gun left and their misguided fear. It’s working exactly as the Anti-2nd Amendment Radicals planned, but the people at the Thompson Valley School can’t see that they, and others like them, are the ones who have been manipulated. Thompson Valley School District spokesman, Michael Hausmann, refused to comment on the school’s horrible accusations.
In another delusional cry for gun-control, a Pennsylvania man was convicted of disorderly conduct for making a shooting gesture with his hand. Stephen Kirchner, in response to his neighbor “giving him the finger,” replied with a hand gesture that simulated a gun. The delusional neighbor told authorities he felt “extremely threatened” by the gesture and Kirchner was found “at fault.” You read that right. The neighbor “felt” threatened by someone pointing their finger like a gun. It’s clear that something is happening to a group of people in our society, but what is it?
According to the Cleveland Clinic website:
“Delusional disorder, previously called paranoid disorder, is a type of serious mental illness — called a “psychosis”— in which a person cannot tell what is real from what is imagined. The main feature of this disorder is the presence of delusions, which are unshakable beliefs in something untrue.”
“These delusions usually involve the misinterpretation of perceptions or experiences. In reality, however, the situations are either not true at all or highly exaggerated.”
“People with delusional disorder often can continue to socialize and function quite normally, apart from the subject of their delusion, and generally do not behave in an obviously odd or bizarre manner.”
“In some cases, however, people with delusional disorder might become so preoccupied with their delusions that their lives are disrupted.”
