How many feel the mass murder and gun crime situation in America is "LIHOP" terrorism?

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by MerryBlooms (a host of the General Discussion forum).

For the really rich people like 1% of the 1% of the 1%, the Koch brothers and their ilk, all these mass murders and crime in general are "let it happen" terrorism aimed at keeping the masses under their thumb. Maybe one reason ALEC promotes these weak gun regulations and the gun culture is to keep us in fear, fear of each other to distract us from turning on the 1% of the 1% of the 1%, our real enemies.

1. "Let it happen" would mean that

there is one or more methods to stop it that are actively not being used. What would those methods be?

3. Similar gun regulations that the rsst of the advanced world has and less gun availablity

 

America's gun laws are outlier and so are our high murder rates. The NRA, "Stand your ground laws", etc pour fuel on the fire.

5. You're joking, right?

 

If they were so worried about the masses coming after them you'd see the exact opposite. Theyd be working hard to get guns out of people's hands.

Besides, plenty of wealthy people actually do push for stricter gun laws. Case in point, Mikey Bloomberg.

6. It's all a plot

They want us to think these things are the work of lone paranoid conspiracy-minded nutjobs.

But that's just what they want us to think. So they find and manipulate the behavior of paranoid nutjobs to make them do these things so that we just think it is paranoid nutjobs who do these things. It is an insidiously evil plan.

There's a reason they always blame this stuff on lone paranoid nutters. They know that the lone paranoid nutters are on to them.

10. The rich mostly aren't scared of your guns. They fly in helicopters and have guards

 

Bloomberg got fixated on driving down crime and keep guns down worked very well so it made him feel important. Some billionaires want to win Super Bowls and others want to have the safest city.

The gun situation in America is another "shock doctrine", the only solution is to buy more guns, to arm everybody or buy some sort of extra protection like bulletproof glass, guards, armored cars, etc. The ALEC boys are making out like the bandits they are while scaring the masses to right.

9. Certainly being taken advantage of, but nothing remotely "nefarious."

I believe we are seeing the fruits of a bankrupt ideology and early symptoms of a much greater societal collapse.

11. I feel TPTB (media, DC, business, etc) foment hatred of one another...and fear...

and that fear -- which is further stoked by the increased economic inequality, lack of healthcare, destruction of the social safety net, etc. -- leads to daily horrors, involving guns and otherwise.

Too much fear, too many guns. That's what I think.

17. LIHOP is an acronym for "Let it happen on purpose". It was coined by those who believe ...

that the Bush administration knew about 9/11 ahead of time but allowed it to happen so as to have a pretext to go to war with Iraq.

I don't live in fear. Sorry you do. More people live in fear of where their next meal is coming from. Guns are a serious problem. Your op is your problem.
