Tuck Carlson: Marijuana Causes Mass Shootings

I wish Republicans would just settle on one alternative to “anything BUT the guns” causing mass shootings. I have just written that Trump-supporter Tony Perkins insists it is because we teach real science and prevent his idea of prayer in school. Now, Tucker Carlson weighs in to assure us that marijuana contributes to the cause. “In the aftermaths of the mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton, the country scrambled, justifiably, to understand what motivated the killers,” said Carlson. “Ideology seemed like an obvious reason and we picked that apart at some length. But it could it just be part of the answer? “A toxicology report on the Dayton shooter, for example, revealed that he had several drugs in his system including cocaine and Xanax. He was also known to be a longtime user of marijuana. It turns out, in fact, that many violent individuals have been avid marijuana users. Is there a connection?” Apparently Carlson believes marijuana contributes more than guns, since he never got around to discussing the gun laws that allow such slaughter. Notice that he never got around to noting that the Dayton shooter did not have marijuana in his system at the time? We only get the second hand assurance that he was “known” to be a longtime user of marijuana. Cocaine and Xanax? A strange choice, at odds with each other, but we presume that people make strange choices, and that is why those of us not under the sway of the gun lobby want much stricter gun laws, precisely because we presume the obvious, guns inevitably fall into the hands of someone “not right.” With respect to El Paso, we need not delve even that deep, because the El Paso murderer went out of his way to assure us as to what motivated him. Apparently we aren’t supposed to talk about the disgusting views about immigrants propounded by Trump. Tucker was not done: “I don’t think it’s going way out on a limb to draw that connection then between cannabis use, particularly I assume chronic use and acts of violence,” You are going much further out on that limb than you need. “Why is this not something that we’re pursuing more aggressively?” Because most of us prefer to stay aggressive on the one cause we can really do something about? Keeping guns out of the hands of all people disturbed enough to murder fellow citizens. Regardless, influential Republicans seem chock-full of answers to the mass-shooting epidemic. They just cannot seem to agree with each other, except for agreement that gun laws that keep guns off the street is not something to be discussed. They are becoming increasingly complicit. **** Peace, y’all Jason jmiciak@yahoo.com, and come aboard the Twitter Train, @MiciakZoom
