Save our children…. ban all firearms?

May 10, 2019

….If you are shaking you head in agreement with the title of this posting that banning firearms is the answer to the 23 school shootings where 113 people were killed or injured in 2018 you are once again proof that most adults today have no common sense.

Yes I agree if you could magically remove (all) firearms (legal and illegal) from society there would be no more school shootings, then again it might result in a rise of assaults with baseball bats and knives but the overall carnage would definitely be less than what we now see.

No I am not trying to be sarcastic I am just saying there was a reason why we didn’t see this many shootings back in the 40’s, 50’s and even the 60’s when access to firearms was even easier than it is today and that answer for the most part is parents took a larger role in raising their children by instilling in them a stronger sense of morality and right and wrong.

For decades now parents have sided with their children in that they be allowed if they so choose to play the ever more extreme video games despite the warnings that it will desensitize the children to violence and would blur the line between shooting someone in a video game and shooting a classmate in real life.

You add that as icing on the cake of the new morality of almost anything goes (like the child choosing what sex they are or the bathroom they use in school) and where we witness the parent now not siding with the teacher or policeman’s actions against their child and you have a new age of children growing up without a strong moral compass a disrespect for authority and a innate thrill at experiencing more and more violence.

So yes the cries will once again

ring out across the nation

to have more and stronger gun laws

when it is those same adults

who allowed their children

to become the ones

shooting other children.

    Exactly. Somehow we have to restore family values we once had.
