President Trump on Texas Church Shooting: Mental Health Problem, Guns Not to Blame

by Chris Black

President Trump was asked on Monday during a presser whether better (as in stricter) gun control laws could have prevented the Texas Church massacre. The POTUS  proved once again he’s awake and dropped a truth bomb:

“Mental health is your problem here. This isn’t a guns situation. This is a mental health problem at the highest level. It’s a very, very sad event.”

Truer words have never been spoken by a standing President. As Donald Trump described the murderer as a very deranged individual during a joint press conference in Japan on Monday, we already know quite a few things about Devin Patrick Kelley, the 26 year old psychopath who indiscriminately killed 26 people, including toddlers and pregnant women, during one of the worst mass shootings in US history at a Baptist church in rural Texas.

To begin with, we learned today that Devin was a weirdo outcast (according to former class mates), a “practicing” atheist who literally preached his lack of faith both online and in real life, harassing his Christian friends by saying that God worshipers are stupid. Here’s a quote from one of Devin’s former colleagues:

‘He was always talking about how people who believe in God we’re stupid and trying to preach his atheism’ 

Even if I find an atheist’s lack of faith disturbing, that doesn’t mean all atheists are future mass murderers or bad people, not at all. What we’re dealing with here is a pathological case, but I’ll get back to that in a second.

We also know that Devin Patrick Kelley was arrested in the past for animal cruelty and, take a load of this: he broke his infant stepson’s skull in 2012 and assaulted his wife. Most of the people who knew him in mid school and high school said he was a very deranged individual.

Considering the facts above, we can already paint Devin Patrick Kelley as a mental case, a violent person with obvious psychiatric problems. And, as usual, the Donald is onto something.

There’s a crucial detail about Devin’s life which, at least in this writer’s view, explains his heinous act. According to a former middle school classmate who chose to remain anonymous, Kelley complained a lot about his parents giving him powerful psychiatric drugs while in mid-school:

“His parents had him on high doses of ‘psych’ meds from 6th to 9th grade, the time I knew him,”

Also, the gunman had “daddy issues”, as he was seen by multiple persons verbally abusing his very demanding father. So, what do we have here? A child with presumably abusing parents who was put on hardcore psychiatric drugs since 6th grade.

And we know that mass violence, including mass shootings is linked to prescription psychiatric medication. Check out this very informative report on SSRIs and mass killings: Medicated to Death: SSRIs and Mass Killings.

 

And if you’re wondering why the mainstream media doesn’t touch the subject (with the exception of Fox News), the answer is pretty simple: Big Pharma spends more than 2 billion dollars annually in advertising its products on TV.  Check out the videos:

Do you really think we have a gun problem in America?
