If Renee Garfinkel truly believes the inanimate objects that require interaction with humans are capable of killing people on their own, why is she nor anyone else calling for legislation against other inanimate objects that could produce the same dopamine/endorphin addictive behavior as guns?

If you read the article at Freedom Outpost, “The History Of Mass Shootings That Need To Be Heard Before People Demand More Gun Control,” several patterns were identified that occur after mass shootings, right on cue, calling for restricting further the people’s right to keep and bear arms.

Now, a psychologist has penned an opinion piece at The Washington Times claiming America is addicted to guns. Renee Garfinkel, Ph.D., an author and radio host, presented her case for identifying the “gun problem” in America as an addiction similar to gambling.

Garfinkel wrote in The Washington Times:

President Trump generally responds to mass shootings by talking about mental illness. As a psychologist, I note that he gets it almost right. He just fails to correctly identify the patient.

The patient is America, and the illness is addiction. Our nation is addicted to guns, with increasingly deadly consequences.

Wherever you find addiction, there you find denial. The alcoholic who says, “I can quit any time I want,” and the gambling addict who says, “If I hit it this time, everything will work out,” are in the same boat as those who say, “Guns don’t kill people, people kill people.” They are all addicts in denial, refusing to see the overwhelming evidence of the damage caused by their behavior.

When allowed to continue unchecked, addictions destroy lives.
