Psychology and Guns Part 2

Going back to the done to death argument over George Zimmerman, it should be noted that there are some things that are completely overlooked in this case. One major thing is his behavior.  He was first off a Neighborhood watch captain. Secondly, he decided to confront someone who he thought was dangerous. If that wasn’t enough, four days after Zimmerman was acquitted, he “rescued” a family from a car accident. If this country wasn’t this polarized, this should have alarmed everyone because this behavior strongly correlates with Hero Syndrome. Hero Syndrome is a behavioral pattern where a person wants to be recognized and appraised for heroic deeds and these people are known to look for trouble and even cause trouble to be the hero of the situation. Even the FBI has stated that Zimmerman has this.


This is important because this raises a question. Why was he able to own a gun in the first place? You are telling me that he has a personality problem where he actively seeks trouble and can even create trouble for others just so he can be a hero and yet he can own a gun? In about ever mass shooting in the US, the underlying factor has always been mental disorders. Yet most of these killers have been legally capable of obtaining a gun even when psychologists have diagnosed them as dangerous to themselves and others. Why is psychology not being addressed?

    George Zimmerman was not a member of any recognized neighborhood watch organization, and when he claimed to be a “neighborhood watch captain” it was a self-appointed if not wholly imaginary position.

    National Sheriffs’ Association Executive Director Aaron D. Kennard:

    “The alleged action of a ‘self-appointed neighborhood watchman’ last month in Sanford, FL significantly contradicts the principles of the Neighborhood Watch Program. NSA has no information indicating the community where the incident occurred has ever even registered with the NSA Neighborhood Watch program.”

    I think it’s obvious that George Zimmerman is being supported by some very influential people or groups.
