Propangandists are experts at aiming at the brain--your emotions are played upon in an effort to convince you to see things their way. We see this tactic unfolding before our very eyes with the gun control debate, where mental health has become a central focus. Our goal is to appeal to your intellect in such a way that you look at the information from a logical perspective, and decide for yourself what makes sense. On this episode of The Axiom Amnesia Theory, Heit & Cheri analyze President Obama's plans and executive orders concerning gun control, which rely heavily on a determination of mental health for legal gun purchases.
Topics discussed include Obama's executive orders on gun control, the plan to use teachers to point out potentially violent students, how Obama's gun control plan is not aimed at stopping inner-city gun violence, improving mental health services, Luke Campbell calling Spike Lee an "Uncle Tom" for speaking out against the movie "Django Unchained", and more!
