With 40% of children being born out of wedlock, an entertainment industry focused on violence that desensitizes people to violence, disintegrating communities with fewer people attending church or participating in community events, and the advent of technology that makes it easier for the atomization of society and less interchange with their neighbors and colleagues, is it any wonder such incidents take place?
The mass media and the entertainment industry should do some soul searching instead of pouncing on gun control as the culprit. And so should our political elites who are fanning the fire of division within our country on the basis of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, and wealth. Obama has been a divider not a uniter.
Great stuff, that along with more help for the insane would solve many problems.
You’ve hit it, kabar. Falling right in line is the copy-cat affect which all the media are encouraging today.
Killing by firearm could be eliminated if the following was done:
1. Revert our way of life to the technology of 12th Century Europe (not China, as they had gunpowder by that time).
2. Confiscate every single gun, rifle, pistol, revolver, musket, cannon, blunderbus and arquebus. This includes ALL military and police weapons, world-wide. Melt them down.
3. Kill all armorers and any one who knows how a gun is used, manufactured, produced, etc. Destroy all records of their existance and scour libraries and bookstores for any and all references to firearms. Burn them. Then kill those who ordered and carried out the scouring, melting and burning.
4. Make it illegal to own salt peter, sulfur and charcoal, especially powdered varients of same.
Perhaps do away with steel, iron, and only allow metals made of bronze. Glocks have plastic parts, too. Ban plastic.
