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.

It's only head and now it's online and Bible. This stylecom Yo emotions with Bible style. That's right. Welcome back to boy pull the STOIL. Did you guys watch that? You Guys Watch South Park? Where you live? Do you get South Park on the comedy Central Network in America? There's a great show called South Park. You're probably aware of it. They had an episode last season featuring Mark Zuckerberg of facebook, 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 Your Stoil? I just thought it was funny and that guy kind of sounds like that. Welcome back to boy pull the style. Love it cool, all right. Well, we have to talk about guns again. Why do we have 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 and understand at least why we're talking about them. Don't have any I don't have to find details on the solutions, but I do have the answers. I have solutions for the problem. This is true. And Hey, did you also notice? It's all in your head and now it's online. I hope you have a sense of humor. That shit is tongue in cheek. Bipolar disorder, I guess, is in your head. What's in your brain? Your brains in your head, so technically gassing your head. But that opening line 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 our way 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 not the 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 of humor somewhere under all the layers of depression. Right, right, all right. So let's get on talk about guns. Here's Jeez, so bad. In America we have a gun problem. And now with the fucking crazy ass dictator, want to be authoritarian president, using really vile language to try to diminish 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 gun crime and we can't even get them to agree on that basic principle. That's a problem. I was looking at guns per capita, so check this out in America. Now let's start the bottom, so saying like a country that is actively at war right now, like say Syria. In Syria, for every one hundred people, for people have a gun. Compare that to the UK, which in America we see the UK is famously has no guns a even the cops don't have guns. Obviously that's changed over time, but with that perspective, even then, the UK has six guns per capita. That means six guns for every one hundred people. So in this case the UK has fifty percent more guns per capita than war torn Syria. Six go to the Ukraine, another war torn country, six guns per capita. A place that I consider most eyesily on earth, Somalia, only has nine guns per capita. I checked some other countries that download bipolar style a lot. Thailand fifteen guns per capita, Australia twenty five guns per capita. So now we're in the range of kind of modern capitalist societies. So Australia, twenty four guns per one hundred people. And my friend on twitter mel she lives down in Mexico and I hope she didn't think I was talking to her when I was arguing with some other dude on on twitter about guns. But in Mexico only fifteen people out of a hundred have guns. In Canada so far the highest on the list. Out of every one hundred people, thirty people have guns. This all leads to America having a gun problem. In America, for every one hundred people there are one hundred and one guns. In America there are more guns than people think about that. So what that means is when 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 pissed in Syria, might have a war torn country. You want to want to be a rebel. Sorry, no guns for rebels today. You can use those dirt clods over there in America. I'm pissed at that guy. I want some conflict resolution. Here's your conflict resolution. Blat Black, Black Nice right. 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 people in 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't think you're actually trying. In fact, all you fucking second amendment types had one job. Your job was to form a well regulated militia and prevent the country from being taken over by a goddamn second rate authoritarian dictator want to be and you failed. You fucking failed your jobs. Go turn in your goddamn tools. You Suck. By the way, the US government killed eleven hundred and ninety people. Cops killed eleven hundred and ninety innocent people in America last year. Think about that. To eleven hundred ninety people that never got their day in court. You're innocent until proving guilty in America. And Police Killed Eleven hundred and ninety people with their guns. Again in America, we've got more guns than people. If that's the tool you use for everything. That's the tool you're going to use to arrest person. You can just going to kill him instead. If they need medical health, not fuck it. Don't call mental health unit, shoot him instead. What about the terrorists? So we got to protect ourselves from terrorists. Right since the day after eleven until the end of two thousand and sixteen, there were two hundred twenty five deaths total for their whole time period from terrorists in America. Two hundred and twenty five deaths. So basically the police in America kill five times as many Americans as all terrorists deaths from fuck in nine, from from eleven all the way to December thirty one two thousand and sixteen. Five Times as many every year. And then dig a little deeper. Of those two hundred and twenty five deaths that you're supposed to be using your guns to protect yourself from, seventy five percent of those two hundred twenty five deaths over that time period were from radical 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's make America grade again, baseball hat. And now the conversations gotten more insidious. Now the conservatives, much like in Pre Nazi Germany, are starting to classify people in their order of kind of hierarchy. And guess where the mentally ill are? Yep, right on the bottom. The mentally ill are on the bottom of the list. It's time to stand up and fight back and remind the politicians that we are not broken, we are simply sick, and any of us are sick temporarily. Most everyone I know with bipolar disorder is extremely 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 might even 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 that term. We own that term. Calling people crazy, we own that term. Fuck you, stop using the word crazy. We own that. That's our term. The Gay community has their terms they own. Different ethnic communities 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 to get a whole backlash about people he's trying to blame for the fact that is just guns. And here's the thing that kills me. Okay, this is just driving me crazy. You can't negotiate with people like the NRA the way you'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 a PG thirteen rating. I'm gonna submit an x rated movie at first to make them 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 more than you actually need and when negotiating with these kind of folks. So you presenting your rational idea of incremental, you know, gun legislation. That's not going to work. We have to go...

...at it full force. So just demand 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 take the 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 of the guns. Oh, but what about my riot's? Where about my you? You have rights. You had them, you lost them. You did not form 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 the COPS? Yeah, take their guns. We're about the bad guys in the other country. They're guns. Take the fucking guns. What do you think all the guns means? Back Up, if you don't know what the word all 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's that'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 start there. And when people say it's unrealistic, you know that's on them. If they 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 part of 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. We should have Philip K Dick Style precrime division that will dis engage or disable your thumb 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's years off. Okay, well, until you're there yet, no guns. Melt them all. Melt all the guns, all the bullets, because I guarantee you, guns are not in the future. If you're living and there are still guns and you're hearing this podcast, you're not in the future. You're still in the past, and that's especially trippy when you consider audio like this 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 and you still have guns, you still have an evolved you're still in the fucking past. Man, how crazy would that be? See Crazy, I get to own that word. I'm certified, I got to I got a half price bus pass. Okay, I'm certified? Yeah, I don't. Here's here's the 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, which is pretty difficult. Ask anybody how hard it is to shoot accurately from a moving vehicle. I can do that Shit. I can hurt people. HMM. But do I know? Have I owned a gun? Yes, I had a rug P eighty nine. It's nice little nine millimeter. I got rid of it before we we before I got divorced with my wife. We just got rid of the gun. Would never really used it much after you know, the range all the time and HMM. Well, I went through all the rules there on the state of California's regulations and apparently I still qualify to get a hand gun. So I think I'm going to make a little documentary about how easy it is for someone as openly mentally ill as myself but stable, can get a handgun, and even a state like California was had some 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 that I don't need to spend on something else. But that said, I could always buy the gun and then sell it just to prove a point. Man Get all wound up about the gun thing and they had to go and wreck it to you know, just shooting up the place and listening to the recordings of 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 so many opportunities the they were called out to the house several times. They're people that told them I worry about this guy. One one girl even said I'm worried he's going to come shoot up the school. The sheriff had no leadership. 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 big old pussy and never went in anyways. Same with three other guys, three uniform sheriffs, that were called to the scene. They were pussies. They didn't go in. They were cowards. They just sat outside waiting for people to come out, which allowed the killer to change his clothes and walk over to the fucking Walmart Yay, America bottom a cocacola. Goddamn, that is some stupid shit. You know, if you're not from America, everybody in America that is not from Florida thinks of Florida as the big flaccid penis of America. 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 be a long podcast because a lot of people that listen are not from America and just 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's just what it sounds like. Oh, guns killed people, then you need more guns. Coming from a guy like Donald Trump, who avoided military service 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 failed to respond. They had guns. There were guns the quote unquote, good guys who kill one hundred plus people a year in America. Those good guys failed to protect those kids in that school. So you're telling me we need to give guns to the teachers too. How would you like to be a black 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 warm and fuzzy inside, really safe. We'll have schools kind of reminiscent of like pink floyds the wall, just factories, cement factories, grinding out kids in the meet with guards at every door. fucked up. Hey, so I was 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 of accent is that? What do you mean? Can I accent? Is that? He's like, yeah, it is a Europe like no man, this California. This is a California accent. HMM. No, it sounds like you sound like a European trying to talk with an American accents. Like what, whatever, dude, it's fucking funny. So, yeah, I was born and raised in California. I've been all across America and northern cat you know, North America, up and down the Canada and Mexico and Hawaii. And no, that's not accent from another country. I appreciate the other countries because most of my fans are from other countries. It reminds me of being in a heavy metal band in the San...

Francisco Bay area back in the early s, where nobody would ever come to your club, but you can go to Europe and everybody, everybody would get into it and then you can come back home to the bay area and you really Oh yeah, we're fucking big in Europe, Dude. Yeah, we said, we sell out, man big in Europe. So it's kind of long way, as podcast is. Yeah, Fuck Yeah, Dude. I'm get a bit in Europe. So for the American people that have been listening for a long time now, if I 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 Shit in America. All right, I think I forgot my story. The last episode, 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 like to move air and I like to get the ambient noise and pick up all that stuff. But the other the flip side of that, I forget if I mentioned it or not, but I still have the visual in my head. Are Those podcasters who build those like they'll build a box out of cardboard with sound insulation foam, like egg crate type foam inside, and they'll put their mic in there and then they'll do their podcast from inside the box that they'll put their head in the box. So kind of stuck with that visual today, people with their heads in a box. Yeah, I'm doing my podcast today from inside a box. Pull your head out of the box, Dude. It looks weird whatever. So I ran out of gun stuff to rant about. It's not that big of a deal, but do do keeping 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 how easy 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 finding four hundred spare bucks. I found the gun already I'm going to get and we'll just document, of videotape it, talk about it. So the forms I have to fill out and let a rip. Cool. So that's a weird way to end a podcast rallying against guns. If remember we can't do incremental negotiations with those fuckers at the NRA. We just it's all the guns got to go. Melt every gun on the planet into nothing. That's where we 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.
