The Florida school shooting…. FBI error enhanced by political correctness, lax gun laws and lack of parental responsibility

February 20, 2018

In this day and age of constant media attention focused on the FBI and their involvement in the Trump campaign for President I am not going to lay complete blame on them for yet another misstep that cost more American lives. True the FBI was notified months ago that the assailant made statements on YouTube saying, “I’m going to be a professional school shooter” and one would think they would have put him on a watch list after such a statement or at the very least flag him so he could not buy any firearms. However could it not also be that because of the current litigious mentality of our society that just maybe the FBI did not want to end up on the wrong end of a lawsuit by appearing over cautious? Or is that why the Broward County Sheriff department did not keep a closer watch on him and his family after receiving 20 or more 911 calls in recent years.

The FBI’s and sheriff’s department lack of action aside the majority of blame falls at ‘our‘ feet. I’ve written about this before and no doubt I will again but it is you and I who should shoulder some of the blame for another school shooting because we have for years turned a blind eye to the things that caused these murders and have not worked forcefully enough to change and strengthen  ‘some’ of our gun laws.

Desensitization…. It was written in a National Institute of Health report that…“Since the early 1960s research evidence has been accumulating that suggests that exposure to violence in television, movies, video games, cell phones, and on the internet increases the risk of violent behavior on the viewer’s part just as growing up in an environment filled with real violence increases the risk of them behaving violently.” Yet for many decades we have ignored the psychologists who suggest this and allowed our children to be exposed to movies, television and electronic games that have violence as their basis.

Family…. Because of the economy many families have seen either the father working two jobs or both the mother and father having to work and thus parental oversight is either lax or nonexistent. Where once at least one adult was always around with their children now at times we have children basically living on their own. This lifestyle of unfettered freedom for children is a virtual breeding ground for evil to bloom.

Morality…. For one reason or another over the years religion has disappeared from family life and that once stalwart foundation for morality is no longer instilled in our children. Society has now even reached the point that espousing to live a moral life is consider “lame”.

A lifetime of movie and TV violence

Video games that incite you
to murder more people
just to win

A home with no parental supervision

Surrounded by ‘friends’ who think living a moral life is for freaks

We cracked the lid on Pandora’s box long ago

and now we are reaping the results.

    Thanks for pointing out things that I & maybe some others on here hadn’t thought of. Once again, you’ve dug deeper in reasoning out this madness.
