Making Dallas Even Better

Arizona Man Launches ‘Take Alex Jones’ Guns Away’ Petition

The full text, from the White House’s “We The People” petition site:

Alex Jones’ gun obsessed tirades on national TV and the internet have drawn grave concerns about his mental wellbeing. It’s apparent from his conspiracy driven rants that he may be mentally unstable and potentially poses a risk to himself or others. In short, Mr. Jones appears to be a ticking time bomb and he may literally “blow” at any moment. At the same time, however, Mr. Jones has unwittingly made himself the poster child of what effective gun safety reform should look like. The common denominator to these massacres is mental illness. Regulating the type of gun or capacity of the magazine won’t change or do anything to prevent mentally ill people from harming themselves or others. If someone wants to own a gun, then they, like Mr. Jones, should have to pass a mental health exam.

This petition thing has got to stop. I just wish there was a way to end it all.

    This post is propoganda to swerve peoples opinions about Alex. He speaks the truth and he was acting a fool on live tv because that was his one chance to expose the wrong-goings in the U.S. Actually listen to everything he mentioned and research it. Don’t let yourself be blind.

    Wow, Calling someone an idiot is a very persuasive arguement . The problem with giving the facts to paranoid people is that they’ll never believe you because, in their minds, you’re part of the conspiracy and they won’t believe it because they’re paranoid. I tell people to get their news from more than one VALID source and actually perform cognition. Someone should tell poor Alex that the loudest person in the room is not always right. They could devote a whole chapter in the DSM to him :)

    My favorite bit was “Bloomberg Controlled Areas”. It’s funny until it’s scary until it’s funny again. The man is off his rocker.

    The petition isn’t clever enough to be propaganda-though it is symptomatic of the American Rule of Dumbth…and it is a terrifically extreme and frightening case of bullying and group/mob think.

    Dear Alex, when they do finally admit you, involuntarily, to the mental ward. Don’t spend your time brooding over getting out, or how this all ties into your theory about how they were going to do this to you. No, spend it learning a new skill i.e. crocheting, puzzle making, portraitures, etc. Use your days locked up on the funny farm for you……it’s so much more sunnier that way! Godspeed :)
