Yet another school shooting and another call from Democrats to take away the right to “keep and bear arms.” Democrats use gun violence and safety as their excuse for wanting to make citizens vulnerable to government.
But we must remember Democrats are the party of massive government control. The proliferation of weapons in this country is one of the things keeping us free … free from government oppression. Recall that Lexington-Concord was about the British aiming to confiscate colonists weapons caches. It was one of the precipitations for the Revolutionary War.
But the shootings in major cities and unfortunately, schools is NOT a gun issue. It is a parental failing and concomitantly a social issue. We need to hold parents accountable for the predations of their offspring on the grounds they failed to raise their children properly.
Dumping their kids in day care and public schools is no substitute for inculcating proper values into your kids. When you bring a child into the world you assume a decades long obligation to adequately teach that child proper behavior.
But then it’s hard to do when adults themselves are going berserk because their fast food order isn’t correct, or someone cuts in front of them in a queue, or a restaurant runs out of chicken or sauce. The gun violence we have is a direct result of failed parental examples.
And let us not fail to mention that bastion of violence, the entertainment industry. They steadfastly deny their on-screen violence affects anyone because everyone knows it is all make believe. Watching entertainment doesn’t really impact people, they say. If that is so…why the commercials?
Commercials are on screen and advertisers use these to impact the viewer! You can’t have it both ways. If on-screen fails to impact viewers then companies are wasting a lot of stakeholder money on ads. But if on-screen ads do impact viewers, then so will the violence perpetually pervading television, movies, and video games.
As a society can we continue to permit the headlong collapse into anarchy, violence, and ultimately big government controls? How many children and adults need to be killed before we decide “enough”?
It has been said Nature abhors a vacuum. God’s values have been pushed out of the classroom and socialistic relativism is filling the void. As we’ve seen time after time, socialist agendas fail citizens.
Are we going to accept “woke” as a substitute for sanity? Are we going to allow alleged injustices to replace the merits of the Ten Commandments? The Golden Rule?
Corruption isn’t always about money. Souls and spirits can become corrupt, too, and Uvalde is the latest example.
