Does the Anti-Gun Mob Have a Self-Inflicted Mental Disorder?

Opinion by Dan Wos

Anti-Gunners may be suffering from “Delusional Disorder.”

USA – -( The irrational fear of guns, perpetuated by the anti-gun left, has worked its way into our society in such a way that causes people to take extreme action on situations that exist only in their minds.

Often times, when guns are the topic of discussion, those of the anti-gun mindset, believe their fantasies over the stark contrast of what is actually occurring in the real world. It’s so bad that the mere photo of a gun, a Pop-Tart chewed into the shape of a gun or someone making a hand gesture that looks like a gun, has become cause for alarm among those who have this condition. These irrational views are perpetuated by gun-fear-groups like Moms Demand Action and other anti-gun lobbying organizations.

The knee-jerk reaction to anything gun-related comes from people who have been cultivated, to fear guns, through concerted propaganda and rhetoric. The people who fall for this type of fear-campaign seem to be very illogical, irrational and emotionally driven when it comes to the topic of guns. These are often people who have never even held a gun in their hands. Critical thinking gets thrown out the window in exchange for dangerous, reactive, emotion.

What is the left trying to accomplish with their anti-gun brainwashing?

In Colorado, 16-year-old Loveland High School Junior, Nathan Myers, was kicked out of school and told not to come back until the school was able to “conduct an investigation,” into what they called, a threatening Snapchat by the student. The short video consisted of footage of firearms in their cases, that Nathan took during an innocent day of shooting with his family. The guns were very well-kept and frankly not a bad collection. However, those in charge at the school, decided that this was a threatening video and Nathan should be investigated, causing Nathan’s Father to prove his innocence to the Police. The student who reported the Snapchat video claimed to be scared that Nathan would “shoot up the school.” This is the result of the anti-gun left and their misguided fear. It’s working exactly as the Anti-2nd Amendment Radicals planned, but the people at the Thompson Valley School can’t see that they, and others like them, are the ones who have been manipulated. Thompson Valley School District spokesman, Michael Hausmann, refused to comment on the school’s horrible accusations.

In another delusional cry for gun-control, a Pennsylvania man was convicted of disorderly conduct for making a shooting gesture with his hand. Stephen Kirchner, in response to his neighbor “giving him the finger,” replied with a hand gesture that simulated a gun. The delusional neighbor told authorities he felt “extremely threatened” by the gesture and Kirchner was found “at fault.” You read that right. The neighbor “felt” threatened by someone pointing their finger like a gun. It’s clear that something is happening to a group of people in our society, but what is it?

According to the Cleveland Clinic website:

“Delusional disorder, previously called paranoid disorder, is a type of serious mental illness — called a “psychosis”— in which a person cannot tell what is real from what is imagined. The main feature of this disorder is the presence of delusions, which are unshakable beliefs in something untrue.”

“These delusions usually involve the misinterpretation of perceptions or experiences. In reality, however, the situations are either not true at all or highly exaggerated.”

“People with delusional disorder often can continue to socialize and function quite normally, apart from the subject of their delusion, and generally do not behave in an obviously odd or bizarre manner.”

“In some cases, however, people with delusional disorder might become so preoccupied with their delusions that their lives are disrupted.”

Anti-Gun “Delusional Disorder” has been cultivated over many years. Just in time for “Red Flag Laws.”

Operator: 911, what’s your emergency?

Wimp: M, m, m, my neighbor just finger banged me. *boo hoo hoo, sniff, boo hoo*

Operator: Oh, grow up. Good Lord.


The Operator should have said: “You do know that some people pay good money to have that done to them, don’t you?’


Of course there’s something wrong with the anti-gun people, but not the politicians. The politicians don’t want the population to have the ability to hold them accountable, ever.


FYI, that’s a fake quote, Freud never said/wrote that. It is a paraphrase of a statement from the essay “Guns, Murders, and the Constitution” (February 1990) by Don B. Kates, Jr.

Heed the Call-up

Yes, we know that, but it doesn’t make any less funny. – Abe Lincoln on Internet memes


Thank you for your pointing that out and totally going off point to make yourself look and feel important and well-read at the expense of the subject.


Yes they do.. Americanophobia : An allergic reaction to American Freedom.
“America” Love it or Leave it.


Liberalism is a for real mental disorder. Problem is about half the country is indeed nuts!

Heed the Call-up

That’s because they aren’t Liberals, but Socialists.


Some people hate guns because of personal injury to themselves or friends or family. Andrew Pollack whose daughter, Meadow, was murdered at Parkland says: Blame the shooter’; not the gun”. Hollywood is to blame for much of hoplophobia with exagerated gunplay. In “Shooter” the accuracy is less than 1/10th the diameter
of even a bench rest, using an external method of firing without a human finger ever toughing the trigger.
Car chases are also fantastic with few injuries or fatalities.
I remember ignorant people claiming a hit with a .45 in the little finger would spin a person around.


Mental disorder? Well since you’re asking, I will say yes. But let’s not stop with guns, the left has shown that intelligent debate is not welcome anywhere and it’s nowhere more obvious than in Congress. Free speech is shouted down just for being conservative alone. Colleges are breeding grounds for hate and intolerance and yet public funding dollars flow like sewage to benefit who? The right to defend oneself is unconscionable especially if you want to use a firearm, consider the gun free zone or safe shooting place for criminals. Open borders, giving illegals free health care benefits and denying… Read more »


Do the anti-gun crowd have a self inflicted mental disorder? YES!!!


These are the same people who are pushing TRANSGENDER CHILDREN, so that’s a huge YES.


It matters not in the least what you do, as long as it is not in lock-step with their personally “windmill” they will scream “VICTIM/OPPRESSION” until the cows come home and you are incarcerated on some completely bogus charges.
Remember when Americans could make jokes? Jokes became chargeable offensives long before 9-11 happened.

Well Duh ! the case of doing the same tarred thing over and over and expecting a different result, if not a mental disorder the what is it called

@GMB, An interesting video that echoes your thoughts:

Old Ch.E.

Late neighbor, a good conservative, was terrified of guns and his wife was worse. I asked him what he would do if someone threatened them in their home and he said he would call me to come shoot them. Somehow he inherited an ancient .22 that might even have been inoperative. He wanted to give it to his son in Dallas. He asked me how to transport it I said put it in the backseat the next time you go. He did but his wife made him wrap it in two quilts. Some people are legitimately afraid of guns but… Read more »


Hoplophobia, it’s as simple as that.


I would agree, but, it’s much more than that. It’s not that they are afraid of guns, they just want to be the only ones who have them.


– You are both right. Leaders pushing the effort are seeking power by any means and many may well with to disarm “the people” for nefarious purposes.
They do this primarily by continuing to brainwash large segments of the population to simply fear firearms. Thus those segments support their “benevolent” leader’s efforts to squash those of us who resist.


Why yes, yes they do.


Did poor man in Pennsylvania plead self defense? Seems his neighbor threatened to rape, causing him distress and fear – in fact actual use of a gun might not have been excessive.
Such an argument certainly sounds more reasonable than the neighbor’s fear from finger gun…


From all reports I’m getting from home Pa is really getting more over run by the idiots in the Demo-Rat Party, loosing real sight of reality, a lot of my friends are now looking to find a way out!!!!!!!!!


More illegals & NY ,NJ,etc driving them here. Illegals live in PA work in MD,VA. Now PA is pulling the same tax BS. as the states they fled. I have a upper class borough next to mine. They want to join our borough or more like takeover to raise our taxes all the while telling us your taxes won’t go up. Yeah right. Tennessee is looking good to me.


Just one of many psychoses cultivated by the left in their adherents and followers. They have given us a generation of white people who hate white people, and others who believe we have less than a decade to live unless we “do” something. And that’s just for starts.


I hope Nathans Father took time to “evaluate” the mentally deranged powermongers in charge of that school, and took his Son out. NO child should live in fear of being destroyed for such innocent activity. I’ve been involved with the Appleseed Project as an INstructor for a few years now, and have noticed a remarkable change of late. We like to take photographs of the events, which will often portray identifiable individuals. We have always given the option to everyone as they register to opt out of any images of them being taken. We let them put duct tape of… Read more »

Disarming populations is common since to our public servants desiring to be our masters. As well of those desiring our servants to be our masters. The disarming of a population and killing those who resist is a common method of oppression. People lacking the mental ability to recognize oppression could be considered mentally defective. People whose minds have been imprinted (brain washed) to accept oppression are mentally defective. People who so imprint are simply evil, with the mental defect of psychopaths. Most those so brain washed are likely beyond repair. It would require massive deprogramming therapy on an individual bases.… Read more »


Part II: Marxism uses distortion, fear and lies over time to create brainwashed masses. Logic is bypassed by emotion and the need to belong, assume one’s area of power as reward and a need to fill an empty soul with self righteousness. There is a heresy called Docetism where the human side of Christ is denied because Jesus could not have suffered. This dualism, splitting the spirit from matter manifests itself into having to create a utopia (the delusion of Marxism) where suffering doesn’t exist. This is why progressives use pragmatism to make up reality to be whatever they want… Read more »


One exception to this might be a victim who was traumatized with a gun present or used and the reaction would create more of anxiety (PTSI) than delusions. This could also happen it secondary trauma when either observed it or had a close friend or relative affected by it. After my brother had a gun held to his head during a robbery, both of us went, got a permit and bought a pistol. So people react in different ways. I try to listen to people through their anxiety. It’s more effective as they can slowly disarm themselves from their fear.… Read more »


USA, I am SO GLAD you are paying attention. I was beginning to think I was the only one noticing such things. One other thing these Antifa trash do is the old Ghetto Swap. They buy something, then start tossing bills, grabbing some back, ones, fives, tens, twenties, back and forth, finally claiming the cashier took a fifty or hundred. They start screaming and the manager will give them cash for the hundred just to shut them up.

I am so glad you are awake. It is rare. Thank you.


THAT is why I carry every time I walk out the front door. The left, communists, are uneducated troglodytes that believe every word from the communist democrats and actually believe a communist America would make everyone equal (equally poor and enslaved) and that everything would be free. I wrote a piece for a Louisiana newspaper. The news paper listed my address (but not the addresses of the leftists). When I got home, my American flag was torn down, my mailbox was destroyed and bags of garbage were spread on my lawn and front porch. Yes, I will NOT hesitate to… Read more »


“He that hath no sword, let him sell his garment & buy one” Jesus – Luke 22:36


I like the scene in the film Paper Moon, where the young girl goes into a store separately from the old guy, they mill about, separately, HE picks out some small thing, goes to the cashier, pays for it wiht a twenty, on the back of which is written “Happy Birthday from Aunt Addie”. It is put into the till, top of the stack of twenties. The girl comes up some time later, buys a small item, hands over a one dollar bill, that gets put into the till with the other ones, then she gets the coin change, waits… Read more »

Wos, I caught your March 2020 article in the Blue Press. It was a good read.


Mental disorder? How about this: 1. In WW2, Joseph Kennedy got rich democrats to support the Nazis. Huge Bundist Nazi parades of democrats were seen in Washington, D.C. during WW2. 2. The democrats ratted out military actions to the communists in Hanoi during the Viet Nam war. Democrats stopped bombing of Hanoi to protect their communist brothers. 3. Democrats called Manuel Antonio Noriega and informed him of the American military coming to arrest him. His forces were prepared and set traps and many American servicemen were murdered thanks to traitorous democrats. 4. Ted Kennedy, immediately after a Senate Security Council… Read more »

The German American Bund was dissolved in 1941. There were no huge Nazi parades in DC during WW2.

The bombing of Hanoi was stopped because the North Vietnamese wisely returned to the Paris Peace Talks.Nixon was more than willing to keep bombing them had they not.

Your other points should likewise be viewed with skepticism. I don’t care for the democrats either but you have no business making up your own version of history to suit your prejudices.

Xaun Loc

Sorry, moe mensale,

I hate to have to try to explain history to someone suffering from delusional disorder, but WW2 did _not_ start in December 1941. WW2 had been going on for over three years when the US entered the already ongoing war. So, yes, contrary to your fantasy the German American Bund was quite active during WW2 and did conduct parades in support of the Nazis during WW2.

Bottom line: YOU have no business making up your own version of history to suit your prejudices


and the dingbats are howling because Trump did not “consult” them before taking out that Suleymani wretch and his sidekicks. They forget that when the Israelis had him in their corsshairs about six years ago, they let some US military clown know their plan… the wretch was tipped off, and Israel missed their chance. So he was left free to kill and destroy for another six years or so. Trump not only did the right thing but he did it in the right way. Learned where/when he would be, staged the equipment to take the shot if it presented, it… Read more »
