School Shooting

Posted on Updated on

I almost hate to rehash the whold school shooting debate but. . .

I will start this off by saying that I do not own a gun but I do not buy into the whole ban gun thing that so many liberals are emotionally buying into.   I believe that what we have is a problem with a lack of morality and yes I do blame the whole thing of the liberalization of our country.   The whole “sex, drugs and rock n roll” thing if taking it’s toll on our country.   Too many people are screaming and protesting the latest craze without actually putting any thought into it.

When I grew up we could go out and buy guns and ammo freely without any waiting period or whatever.   No gun laws to speak of and yes I had several guns growing up a .22 and a shotgun.   And guess what?   We did not have any school shootings we did not go out and kill people.

There has always been a few violent people and many of them were able to surpress that urge with help from Religion, Church and the Bible.  But our society has rejected religion and the Bible and it is no longer used as our moral compass.

And as usual this is turning into another violent person almost being excused for his acts because he may have been bullied while in school.  Again there have always been bullys and there always were.  But in times gone by the people being bullied just went on with their lives after a bit of cussing and complaining.  As a person who has been overweight all his life I know a thing or two about this but I shook it off and have had a wonderful life;  perhaps church played a role in this?

Until we start addressing the lack of morality in the country this kind of violent stuff will not only keep happening it will escalate.

Beautiful poem by Sam Walter Foss.  It was my dads favorite poem and also one of mine.   “I want to live in a house by the side of the road and be a friend to man”
