How Communist Ideology Has Shaped American Perspective on Gun Ownership
March 16, 2013
In 1963, the Communist Goals were introduced into the Congressional Record under Appendix, pp. A34-A35. Albert Herlong, House Representative from Florida, brought the “Current Communist Goals” that are outlined by Cleon Skousen in the book entitled “The Naked Communist”.
The 45 goals that were supposed in Congressional presentation by Herlong have either come to pass or in the process of being implemented. Without the knowledge of the American public, these ideals were introduced to our US government to alter the perspective of our Constitutional Republic to incrementally turn the tide from freedom to Communism.
The difference between Socialism and Communism is: “Socialism and communism are alike in that both are systems of production for use based on public ownership of the means of production and centralized planning. Socialism grows directly out of capitalism; it is the first form of the new society. Communism is a further development or ‘higher stage’ of socialism.”
The transition stage we are seeing from Constitutional Republic to Socialism is leading us to a Communist dictatorship.
In respect to gun-control, number 42 states: “Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use [“]united force[“] to solve economic, political or social problems.”
In Indiana, Dan DeHaven, the Lake Station Schools Superintendent, stated that a teacher at Edison Junior-Senior High School was suspended for writing a message to his students on the chalkboard. The message read: “A) You are idiots!!!!!!!! B) The guns are loaded!!! C) Care to try me ?????????”
Students took pictures of the message with their cell phones and alerted school staff members.
DeHaven explained that he will be speaking to the local police about the incident because “we take this situation very seriously; safety is very serious to us.”
In other over-reactions concerning gun control, a 7 year old child was suspended for allegedly shaping a Pop-Tart in a gun and saying “Bang, Bang!”
The school suspended the boy for two days, supporting the teacher’s contention that this was a threatening situation. The school maintained in a letter to the boy’s parents that: “A student used food to make an inappropriate gesture.”
Fort Myers, Florida was the scene of a brave teenager who took a gun from a classmate on a school bus who aimed the firearm “point blank” with the intent to shoot.
Although the teenager wrestled the weapon from his classmate, he was later suspended from school for being involved in an incident involving a gun. This suspension will remain indefinite until the results of an investigation can be finalized.
In the spirit of making our country safer, two schools in the Bronx, New York were put on lockdown after a student reported that another student may have a gun on the school premises. When the gun was located; it turned out to be a Nerf gun that fires foam darts. The lockdown lasted for hours.
Parents who came to retrieve their children were delayed because of the over-reaction of school officials.
Another instance of over-reaction occurred when a 5 year old was sent home from school for building a LEGO gun. The boy was actually suspended from school and sent home with a letter from Hyannis West Elementary School officials that explained to the parents that their son had built a “gun” during a stay at the after-school program.
The parent immediately recognized the insanity of the situation. The father remarked: “It’s not like he’s designing a machine gun.”
Gun control debates have included the idea that mental illness plays a big part as those who are diagnosed with a mental disorder can become violent without notice toward themselves or others. It is the public contention that such individuals must be stopped from ever being able to legally own a firearm.
A study published last year in the New England Journal of Medicine by Dr. William Cooper, pediatrics and preventive medicine professor at Vanderbilt University, claims that Ritalin and Adderall (two pharmaceutical drugs used to treat ADHD) can prevent the mind of hyperactive children from becoming criminals. Cooper contends that these drugs should continue to be administered through adulthood to prevent criminal activity later in life.
Cooper said: “There definitely is a perception that it’s a disease of childhood and you outgrow your need for medicines. We’re beginning to understand that ADHD is a condition for many people that really lasts throughout their life.”
The findings of the study showed:
• Thirty – seven percent of convicts were pre – diagnosed with ADHD
• It was likely that ADHD medication was used in 32% of male convicts and 41% of female
• ADHD suffers were likely to commit burglary or theft
• Four thousand of the 23,000 crimes researched were violent
According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), ADHD is treated with stimulants such as Methylphenidate (Ritalin, Metadate, Concerta, Daytrana), Amphetamine (Adderall), or Dextroamphetamine (Dexedrine, Dextrostat). These drugs have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for children as young as 6 years old.
The accepted treatment of ADHD has a list of dangerous side effects such as:
• Being anti – social or withdrawn
• Feeling hopeless, worthless
• Extreme suicidal thoughts
• Panic attacks
• Aggressive and/or violent behavior
• Sudden changes in mood/behavior
The Karolinska Institute is one of the leading pharmacological research institutions that clarify the field of clinical medicine with the push of the use of drugs to treat physiological and psychological issues. Thirty percent of medicinal training and 40% of medical academic research is conducted at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden and all lectures are translated into English and taught in universities in the US.
Dr. Andrew Adesman, chief of developmental and behavioral pediatrics at the Steven and Alexandra Cohen Children’s Medical Center, confirms through past research that adults who were diagnosed with ADHD as children are more likely to:
• Get into driving accidents
• Consistently lose jobs
• Divorce spouses
• Be arrested or commit some criminal activity
Adesman admits that not all children marked as ADHD go on to become criminals or divorcees, and that the majority of them simply grow out of the behavior. Yet, Adesman still maintains that despite the fact that ADHD is a phase of childhood that rarely carries into adulthood that “collectively, people with ADHD are at risk for a range of poor outcomes.”
