he best technical answer is for the President to order a mass psychoanalysis for the entire American population by a panel of expert Psychiatrists and academics. The objective would be to find out why Americans are so irationally afraid, discover the root causes of this fear psychosis, and recommend cognitive behavioral therapy. Perhaps these irrational fears are the result of: The War of Independence and 1812, the Civil War, the Cold War, Vietnam, Korea etc. We seem to be terrified of : Muslims, Communists, Mexicans, LGBTI, gangs, and even our God. Many of us very afraid of divine retribution, the End Days, and what will happen to us when we die. We are afraid of being driven into poverty by injury or disease. Some are even developing a survivalist mentality, planning how best to shoot their starving neighbours.
The peresident would then ask his experts top propose cognitive behavioural therapy: possibly in the form of education, advertising, and individual counselling. When Americans are not so shit-scared of everything, including each other, then perhaps they will not feel so obliged to own powerful firearms. Better gun laws will never be the answer to a paranoid psychosis
