Tim Kennedy And Joe Rogan Discuss Mass Shootings: “It’s A Mental Health Issue”

Tim Kennedy was recently on The Joe Rogan Experience, and they discussed a lot of things from the Afghanistan withdrawal and the horrors that Tim witnessed to the influx of mass shootings lately. While all the attention has been on gun control and taking away people’s ability to defend themselves, Tim and Joe commented that it’s really a mental health issue.

Tim was talking about his courses where he trains people how to identify things, defend themselves and save lives by keeping blood inside the body with the use of tourniquets, he touched upon the fact that he wants to do more to fix the cause of these events, and not just how to defend and survive against them.

Joe and Tim both realized that it’s a mental health issue, something that America seems to love addressing on social media, but when it comes time to actually help people, the silence is deafening. We’re so focused on the tool uses (in most cases), that we fail to identify the root of the problem.

It is interesting that we choose to single out guns, particularly rifles, when most gun deaths are caused by a handgun, and in cases like the man running over nearly 20 people with an SUV, not once did we blame the tool used (the SUV). I think this is a very important discussion that we need to have, and it’s going to be tough because as I said, all of the attention is placed on guns.

Mock Rogan all you want, but it’s these kinds of conversations that we need to be having amongst ourselves, but never do.
