I posted just two weeks ago about an uptick in the number of dreams about “guns” and “America”:
Two interesting and perhaps co-related trends: dreams of “America” and “guns” are both up over 300% over the last year.
Today, as Obama announces that he will bypass Congress and unveil new gun control measures over the next few days, we might be getting an idea of why. Indeed, take a deeper look; we saw an unbelievable number of dreams specifically about gun control, like the following just in December:
I dreamed all the gun control folks got sick of all the inaction, and organized an armed attack on the NRA. With assault rifles.

Dreamt I’d been shot in a pub whilst debating gun control with Ben Carson. A spectator wanted to prove a point about Android gun interfaces.

I had a dream last night that ISIS sympathizers attacked innocent US citizens and the media was only worried about gun control.

And my favorite:
I dreamed Obama's speech on #SanBernardino points out that places with the strongest gun control laws have the most violence, e.g. Chicago

The degree to which this is resonating in the collective unconscious leads me to believe that there may be more to this than some background checks, and I hope it doesn’t have to do with the situation on Hammond Ranch in Oregon.
I’ve more to post, but no time — cheers for now.
