More guns in America than humans! Should Bipolar people be able to have guns?

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

John Emotions offers the simplest, albeit most difficult solution to the gun problem on Earth. In this episode, we look at gun ownership numbers in various countries; who is really doing the killing, and who benefits. John also learns that he apparently qualifies for handgun ownership in California - a state with some of the toughest gun laws in America.

It's only head and now it's onlineand Bible. This stylecom Yo emotions with Bible style. That's right. Welcomeback to boy pull the STOIL. Did you guys watch that? You GuysWatch South Park? Where you live? Do you get South Park on thecomedy Central Network in America? There's a great show called South Park. You'reprobably aware of it. They had an episode last season featuring Mark Zuckerberg offacebook, and he kept jumping out of the screen these crazy martial arts moves, asking everybody what their style was like, what kind of martial arts style.But he was badly lip synced and overdubbed and he kept saying what's YourStoil? I just thought it was funny and that guy kind of sounds likethat. Welcome back to boy pull the style. Love it cool, allright. Well, we have to talk about guns again. Why do wehave to talk about go why are we always talking about guns? Well,I have a couple of answers. Maybe we can know hash it out andunderstand at least why we're talking about them. Don't have any I don't have tofind details on the solutions, but I do have the answers. Ihave solutions for the problem. This is true. And Hey, did youalso notice? It's all in your head and now it's online. I hopeyou have a sense of humor. That shit is tongue in cheek. Bipolardisorder, I guess, is in your head. What's in your brain?Your brains in your head, so technically gassing your head. But that openingline there, that's poking fun at the people that are poking fun at us, claiming it's all on your head, as if we can just think ourway out of it. So this kind of a double twist. They're going. Anyway, if you don't have a sense of humor, this is notthe best show to listen to. You have to have some kind of well, I don't know ifuck you could be depressed and still have a sense ofhumor somewhere under all the layers of depression. Right, right, all right.So let's get on talk about guns. Here's Jeez, so bad. InAmerica we have a gun problem. And now with the fucking crazy assdictator, want to be authoritarian president, using really vile language to try todiminish and isolate the mentally ill and effectively escapegoat them for all the gun crimes. When effectively. The gun crime is only a problem because the guns exists, not if guns did not exist,...

...it's clear there would be no guncrime and we can't even get them to agree on that basic principle. That'sa problem. I was looking at guns per capita, so check this outin America. Now let's start the bottom, so saying like a country that isactively at war right now, like say Syria. In Syria, forevery one hundred people, for people have a gun. Compare that to theUK, which in America we see the UK is famously has no guns aeven the cops don't have guns. Obviously that's changed over time, but withthat perspective, even then, the UK has six guns per capita. Thatmeans six guns for every one hundred people. So in this case the UK hasfifty percent more guns per capita than war torn Syria. Six go tothe Ukraine, another war torn country, six guns per capita. A placethat I consider most eyesily on earth, Somalia, only has nine guns percapita. I checked some other countries that download bipolar style a lot. Thailandfifteen guns per capita, Australia twenty five guns per capita. So now we'rein the range of kind of modern capitalist societies. So Australia, twenty fourguns per one hundred people. And my friend on twitter mel she lives downin Mexico and I hope she didn't think I was talking to her when Iwas arguing with some other dude on on twitter about guns. But in Mexicoonly fifteen people out of a hundred have guns. In Canada so far thehighest on the list. Out of every one hundred people, thirty people haveguns. This all leads to America having a gun problem. In America,for every one hundred people there are one hundred and one guns. In Americathere are more guns than people think about that. So what that means iswhen people have problems they look to the nearest, most pervasive tool at hand, and in America that tool is a fucking gun. You might be pissedin Syria, might have a war torn country. You want to want tobe a rebel. Sorry, no guns for rebels today. You can usethose dirt clods over there in America. I'm pissed at that guy. Iwant some conflict resolution. Here's your conflict resolution. Blat Black, Black Niceright. So to anybody doesn't think there's...

...a gun problem. Guns into themselves. There's your numbers right there. There are more guns per peep than peoplein America. I don't know which direction to go from here. So frustrating. Okay, let's take a look at well, we need protect ourselves.We need to protect ourselves from from WHO? The government or terrorists? Pick one. Okay, you need to protect yourself from the government. I don'tthink you're actually trying. In fact, all you fucking second amendment types hadone job. Your job was to form a well regulated militia and prevent thecountry from being taken over by a goddamn second rate authoritarian dictator want to beand you failed. You fucking failed your jobs. Go turn in your goddamntools. You Suck. By the way, the US government killed eleven hundred andninety people. Cops killed eleven hundred and ninety innocent people in America lastyear. Think about that. To eleven hundred ninety people that never got theirday in court. You're innocent until proving guilty in America. And Police KilledEleven hundred and ninety people with their guns. Again in America, we've got moreguns than people. If that's the tool you use for everything. That'sthe tool you're going to use to arrest person. You can just going tokill him instead. If they need medical health, not fuck it. Don'tcall mental health unit, shoot him instead. What about the terrorists? So wegot to protect ourselves from terrorists. Right since the day after eleven untilthe end of two thousand and sixteen, there were two hundred twenty five deathstotal for their whole time period from terrorists in America. Two hundred and twentyfive deaths. So basically the police in America kill five times as many Americansas all terrorists deaths from fuck in nine, from from eleven all the way toDecember thirty one two thousand and sixteen. Five Times as many every year.And then dig a little deeper. Of those two hundred and twenty fivedeaths that you're supposed to be using your guns to protect yourself from, seventyfive percent of those two hundred twenty five deaths over that time period were fromradical far right extremists. Only twenty five...

...percent were from radical exost Islamic extremists. The shooter at the Florida School had photos of himself online wearing donald trump'smake America grade again, baseball hat. And now the conversations gotten more insidious. Now the conservatives, much like in Pre Nazi Germany, are starting toclassify people in their order of kind of hierarchy. And guess where the mentallyill are? Yep, right on the bottom. The mentally ill are onthe bottom of the list. It's time to stand up and fight back andremind the politicians that we are not broken, we are simply sick, and anyof us are sick temporarily. Most everyone I know with bipolar disorder isextremely intelligent and when our brain is working, we can figure this shit out.We will vote your ass out of office. A lot of US mighteven run for office ourselves. When you hear the president using terms like maniac, he doesn't know the definition of mania. He has no right to use thatterm. We own that term. Calling people crazy, we own thatterm. Fuck you, stop using the word crazy. We own that.That's our term. The Gay community has their terms they own. Different ethniccommunities have their terms that they own that only they can say. Well,the mental health community, we have certain terms that only we can say.So the president is going to start speaking out of turn, he's going toget a whole backlash about people he's trying to blame for the fact that isjust guns. And here's the thing that kills me. Okay, this isjust driving me crazy. You can't negotiate with people like the NRA the wayyou're negotiating with them. It's like negotiating your film with the Film Studio.Say I want to get this murder scene and that sex scene and this whatever. I got to get the all these scenes in there. I'm want aPG thirteen rating. I'm gonna submit an x rated movie at first to makethem cut back what they'll allow me to show in my pg thirteen movie.In other words, you have to ask for way, way, way morethan you actually need and when negotiating with these kind of folks. So youpresenting your rational idea of incremental, you know, gun legislation. That's notgoing to work. We have to go...

...at it full force. So justdemand no guns. That's that will solve the problem. If nobody had guns, nobody could shoot the guns. Oh, but how are you going to takethe guns away? Fush, who cares? That's a different problem.That's the next problem. Let's first determine that we need to get rid ofthe guns. Oh, but what about my riot's? Where about my you? You have rights. You had them, you lost them. You did notform a well regulated militia. You let the water be dictatorizes the power. Fuck you. Turn in your tools. No more rights, not that one, because you blew it. Take all the guns. What about theCOPS? Yeah, take their guns. We're about the bad guys in theother country. They're guns. Take the fucking guns. What do you thinkall the guns means? Back Up, if you don't know what the wordall means, follow me. We need to demand all the guns be gone. That's not realistic. I didn't I didn't say it was realistic. It'sthat's what we need ask for first. That's what the demand needs to be. Make them crow back what they want out of that deal. But startthere. And when people say it's unrealistic, you know that's on them. Ifthey can't be creative enough to think of a way to make that happen, then fuck you. You're not part of the solution either. You're partof the problem if you're just going to sit there and shit talk the solution, which is no guns. There you go. You're part of the problem. You got to go step aside, let other people talk about it.It's not right, I think, since will good. Well, yeah,okay, here's ideas. All the guns should be out of Matrix. Weshould have Philip K Dick Style precrime division that will dis engage or disable yourthumb print enabled gun when it senses that your chemicals, your brain are loopy. Oh, we're not there yet. We're not there. You technology that'syears off. Okay, well, until you're there yet, no guns.Melt them all. Melt all the guns, all the bullets, because I guaranteeyou, guns are not in the future. If you're living and thereare still guns and you're hearing this podcast, you're not in the future. You'restill in the past, and that's especially trippy when you consider audio likethis could last hundreds of years. So it's two thousand and eighteen right now. If you still hear this podcast in two thousand one hundred and eighteen andyou still have guns, you still have an evolved you're still in the fuckingpast. Man, how crazy would that be? See Crazy, I getto own that word. I'm certified, I got to I got a halfprice bus pass. Okay, I'm certified? Yeah, I don't. Here's here'sthe even weird things. So I've...

...owned guns. I'm an awesome shot. I can take out light bulbs from a moving car no problem, whichis pretty difficult. Ask anybody how hard it is to shoot accurately from amoving vehicle. I can do that Shit. I can hurt people. HMM.But do I know? Have I owned a gun? Yes, Ihad a rug P eighty nine. It's nice little nine millimeter. I gotrid of it before we we before I got divorced with my wife. Wejust got rid of the gun. Would never really used it much after youknow, the range all the time and HMM. Well, I went throughall the rules there on the state of California's regulations and apparently I still qualifyto get a hand gun. So I think I'm going to make a littledocumentary about how easy it is for someone as openly mentally ill as myself butstable, can get a handgun, and even a state like California was hadsome of the quote unquote strongest gun laws in America. It's it'll be easy. The hardest part will be coming up with a spare four hundred dollars thatI don't need to spend on something else. But that said, I could alwaysbuy the gun and then sell it just to prove a point. ManGet all wound up about the gun thing and they had to go and wreckit to you know, just shooting up the place and listening to the recordingsof the killer in Florida leaving those messages just to be ignored by sheriff,is Reel Down There Broward County. Man, they'd blew it. That had somany opportunities the they were called out to the house several times. They'repeople that told them I worry about this guy. One one girl even saidI'm worried he's going to come shoot up the school. The sheriff had noleadership. And then these dumb asses want to put more guns in schools.And then we find out yesterday the armed deputy at the school was a bigold pussy and never went in anyways. Same with three other guys, threeuniform sheriffs, that were called to the scene. They were pussies. Theydidn't go in. They were cowards. They just sat outside waiting for peopleto come out, which allowed the killer to change his clothes and walk overto the fucking Walmart Yay, America bottom a cocacola. Goddamn, that issome stupid shit. You know, if you're not from America, everybody inAmerica that is not from Florida thinks of Florida as the big flaccid penis ofAmerica. It just a limp Dick that hangs off to the right man,Fuck Florida. It's like Texas light. I like Texas, but Florida Gross, the worst of everything. Old People,...

Donald Trump, NASCAR. Yeah,get with it, man, get with it. Yeah, okay,I think I'm done ranting about guns. I didn't think want this to bea long podcast because a lot of people that listen are not from America andjust kind of stare off in the space like what the Fuck's wrong with America? More guns than people? Yes, the whole thing, man, like, okay, say you had a sit say a fire burn down your house, and then some politician says, Oh, fire burned down your house. Huh, I know the answer to this. You need more fire. That that'sjust what it sounds like. Oh, guns killed people, then you needmore guns. Coming from a guy like Donald Trump, who avoided militaryservice at all costs, kind of like the sheriff's down there in Florida.They avoided service at all costs. Four of them for of the COPS failedto respond. They had guns. There were guns the quote unquote, goodguys who kill one hundred plus people a year in America. Those good guysfailed to protect those kids in that school. So you're telling me we need togive guns to the teachers too. How would you like to be ablack teacher with the gun protecting your class? When the SWAT team comes in?You're a black guy holding a gun. Great, makes me feel a warmand fuzzy inside, really safe. We'll have schools kind of reminiscent oflike pink floyds the wall, just factories, cement factories, grinding out kids inthe meet with guards at every door. fucked up. Hey, so Iwas at a lift car. Not the first time this has happened.Kind of playing thou also lent to why I was doing this show this way, with my crazy announcer and whatnot. He said, and what kind ofaccent is that? What do you mean? Can I accent? Is that?He's like, yeah, it is a Europe like no man, thisCalifornia. This is a California accent. HMM. No, it sounds likeyou sound like a European trying to talk with an American accents. Like what, whatever, dude, it's fucking funny. So, yeah, I was bornand raised in California. I've been all across America and northern cat youknow, North America, up and down the Canada and Mexico and Hawaii.And no, that's not accent from another country. I appreciate the other countriesbecause most of my fans are from other countries. It reminds me of beingin a heavy metal band in the San...

Francisco Bay area back in the earlys, where nobody would ever come to your club, but you can goto Europe and everybody, everybody would get into it and then you can comeback home to the bay area and you really Oh yeah, we're fucking bigin Europe, Dude. Yeah, we said, we sell out, manbig in Europe. So it's kind of long way, as podcast is.Yeah, Fuck Yeah, Dude. I'm get a bit in Europe. Sofor the American people that have been listening for a long time now, ifI start to speak more broadly or explain the obvious American kind of things,I'm explaining them for people in other countries that might not know about that Shitin America. All right, I think I forgot my story. The lastepisode, just before this, I was talking about the what I'm surrounded by, like I'm surrounded by hard surfaces because, like my drum set, I liketo move air and I like to get the ambient noise and pick upall that stuff. But the other the flip side of that, I forgetif I mentioned it or not, but I still have the visual in myhead. Are Those podcasters who build those like they'll build a box out ofcardboard with sound insulation foam, like egg crate type foam inside, and they'llput their mic in there and then they'll do their podcast from inside the boxthat they'll put their head in the box. So kind of stuck with that visualtoday, people with their heads in a box. Yeah, I'm doingmy podcast today from inside a box. Pull your head out of the box, Dude. It looks weird whatever. So I ran out of gun stuffto rant about. It's not that big of a deal, but do dokeeping keep track of this because I am going to record buying a gun.If you saw the neighborhood I lived in, you'd probably think, Oh, yeah, yeah, you should probably buy too. But we'll document that,just for the sake of for the sake of fun, just publicly showing howeasy it is for a documented mental health patients with the disorder and incurable disorder, how easy it is for me to be able to get a gun.And I think, like I said, the hardest part will just be findingfour hundred spare bucks. I found the gun already I'm going to get andwe'll just document, of videotape it, talk about it. So the formsI have to fill out and let a rip. Cool. So that's aweird way to end a podcast rallying against guns. If remember we can't doincremental negotiations with those fuckers at the NRA. We just it's all the guns gotto go. Melt every gun on the planet into nothing. That's wherewe start and we work way back from that. Cool, all right.We're going a bike ride now. It's perfect day out in San Francisco,well, except for it's about forty degrees. But aside from that, Sonny,I'll be crackheads and tweakers or hiding because it's cold as shit outside.So that means the streets are clear to...

...ride by bike around. Yeah,all right, guys, yeah, that's it. Let's hear the bumper music. Gay Again, style on it. Cheese a five follow. Excuse me, BOCOM.
