Larry Pratt, Executive Director of the extremist pro-gun group, Gun Owners of America, is certainly no stranger to conspiracy theory mumbojumbo, as I have reported several times before.
This time he agrees with the ridiculous assumption, put forth by the Talk to Solomon Show, that Obamacare is going to force electroshock therapy on bipolar patients. Then they make the even more ridiculous assertion that this diagnosis and treatment will be extended to gun owners who are defending themselves.
See the video here. From the article and video:
During an episode of the Talk to Solomon Show on Tuesday, Stan Solomon noted that The Fort Myers News-Press had reported last week that electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) was becoming a popular treatment for bipolar disorder.
“There’s saying, hey, it’s quicker than some drugs and all that type of thing,” Solomon observed. “But so is a bullet.”
“But the fact is, I am telling you, I believe that we’re going to see things get worse before they get better, and you’re going to see people that are going to be — quote — unquote — incorrigible, however they define incorrigible, maybe resisting when people come crashing into your house,” he told Pratt. “Your thoughts? Because we’re becoming very much an able-to-defend-yourself and an unable-to-defend-yourself country.”
“Well, I think part of that is what we’re seeing in Obamacare,” Pratt agreed. “This is going to be what you’re talking about several times over.”
Just another wacko pro-gun conspiracy theory!
