A great way to understand dopamine controls in a person’s brain!
In the aftermath of the Newtown shooting tragedy, I am hearing and seeing a lot of social media about needing to provide more mental health support to stop incidents like that. Well, talk about a crazy argument, pun doubly intended! And I didn’t pun because I’m insensitive to those needing mental health. Rather, the argument of better mental health support for gun violence in America is that ludicrous!
Last post, I analyzed the impact of gun control legislation and changes on gun related deaths, as shown by statistics. I analyzed it in a lot of details, because that was required. But for those not interested in all the details, the summary was this. The impact was clear that the Brady Bill had a major impact to lower gun related deaths per year and per capita by about 25% ! See 1994-1999 part of analysis in link above. That impact, one would think, had to do with the background checks required. That was true. But what was surprising was something in the process of that check.
