Mountain Man: America is in no more of a decline and it's kids are no more
crazy than the rest of the developed world. My gosh, compared to the UK and
Germany we are, well, Puritans. What differentiates us is the amazing access to
guns and ammunition that kids in no other civilized country have. If you are
pleased with the consequences of this, then by all means say and do nothing.
@lost in DCNice rant, just one problem... most violent crime has declined
sharply the past 20 years. These mass shootings are pretty much the lone
Where did the firearms or bullets attack? When did they become cogent?Everytown does not promote gun safety, the NRA does. Everytown promotes
citizen control.Why did Governor Moonbeam veto a bill keeping drunks
from getting guns?There was an article in the print version of the
DN this morning – could not find it in the on-line version, must have been
posted 4 weeks ago – talking about how Americans like TV programming with
ambiguous morality, shows like breaking bad, etc. When we want
amorality in our programming, when we feast on the sex and violence in Game of
Thrones or Spartacus, the lack of respect for the law shown in the Sopranos,
etc., when we fill out ears with profane and misogynistic rap, what can we
respect? Our moral decline has EVRYTHING to do with the violence, and gun
ownership or availability has little or nothing to do with it.As MM
points out, when we have such a moral decline, what should we expect? As ye sow,
even so shall ye reap. The law of the harvest.
M-man's theory only holds up if he can show that Swiss parents raise their
children differently from American ones, and that's assuming his thesis
regarding guns is true. He didn't bother to prove it.
We will continue to have these shootings because America is in a steep cultural
and moral decline! In Switzerland it is required by law to have a gun in every
home yet they have the lowest crime rates in the world so it can not be the lack
of ever more gun control laws, which never work! Because America is saturated
with morally bankrupted (moral relativism) people, the only solution is armed
guards in our schools. Good guys with guns is the only way to stop bad guys with
guns because bad people will ALWAYS get guns or knives or pressure cooker bombs
or whatever, period!
