Santa Fe Shooting: How To Stop School Shootings

Posted by Troy on 20th May 2018 in Current Events, Human Nature

As I said about Parkland…what if a kid comes in with a shotgun and a pistol?  Which is what happened this go around.   So let’s stop talking about the AR-15s.  The type of weapon is not the issue.

There are two main camps.

One group believes guns are the issue.  These people want a total gun ban.  They know they will not get this, and instead want to chip away at private gun ownership until they achieve this goal.

The other group realizes that incremental steps will do nothing to stop these types of attacks and realize that the end goal of the first group must, indeed, be a total gun ban.

The two groups will bicker back and forth.  The first group will accuse the second group of not caring if children die.  The second group will accuse the first group of using dead kids to advance their agenda of disarmament.

I could give a long defense of the Second Amendment, but I am going to bypass all of this nonsense and actually deal with the real issue on people’s minds:

How do we stop having dead kids?

1 – Regardless of what Hollywood and others in the entertainment industry (yes, including video games) want you to believe, the glorification of violence in modern day media, particularly the elevation of murderous criminals in such entertainment, makes hearts jaded.

2 – Facebook and other social media has shoved a false importance on fame.  Having your name plastered all over social media and the news is appealing to these killers, even if they know that it will be posthumously.

3 – All of these killers were picked on and ostracized.  Alone and depressed and angry, they pick up a gun and get their revenge (again, glorified in media) and get their fame (again, pushed by social media).

If you want to stop these incidents:

1 – Portray violence as it is: dirty and shameful and beneath human dignity–that which should only be undertaken as a last resort.

2 – Media should do a total blackout of these killers’ names.  Now, that’s almost impossible in this day and age.  Some 3rd tier news organization will cover the killer with the name, but all reputable  news organizations should agree to a total blackout of the names, removing the fame component of this.

3 – Parents need to teach their kids to treat others kindly at all times.  This goes for the killers and the other kids as well.  We don’t want to talk about it because it’s tantamount to blaming the victims, but there you go.  But prior to these attacks, those kids (the killers) were victims of harsh words, derision, and possibly even physical bullying.

Remember, these guns were around beforehand, and we did not have all these shootings.  It’s not the guns.  It’s the hearts.  Remember, the Founding Fathers said that only a moral people could be free, could govern themselves.  The answer is not to turn this country into a police state.  The answer is not to remove freedoms.  The answer is to return to morality.

Long Live the Constitution!

Chattanooga Shooter

I lost a bet.  Before I read Obama’s comments on the shooter, I made a bet that he would say one of three things:

1)  Let’s not jump to conclusions…

2)  This is someone that has perverted Islam, and this event should not be associated with Islam, which is a religion of peace, or

3)  This wouldn’t have happened if guns were not so readily accessible.

Instead, he said that we don’t know what motivated him.

What motivated him?  Dude!  The guy’s name is “Mohammad Youssuf Abdulazeez.”  He may or may not be associated with some group or another, but at the end of the day, he was inspired by the Koran or the Quran or however you wanna spell it.

Is that where we are, now?  We are unable to say the obvious?  A cop shoots a black guy, and all cops are racist pigs.  If an illegal alien kills an American citizen, we must not speak of it or we are racist.  If a Muslim kills four people, we have to pretend as though his religion has NOTHING to do with it.

Yes, I know that Christianity had its dark days.  However, there is something different here.  There is literally no way you can take Jesus’s message and justify what the church did in his name.  Have you ever read the Koran?  Mohammad says you must kill people ALL the time!  Not just a couple of random passages.  At least 10% of the book is about killing others (mostly Jews).  And I feel I am being very generous there.

Most Muslims are like most Christians.  They want to go to work, feed their families, and have a happy life.  However, if you read the Koran and wanted to live your life according to its teachings, you are not betraying its teachings when you kill.  The same cannot be said of the Christian Bible.  That is the difference.

It may be politically incorrect, but that’s just the way it is.

Long Live the Constitution!

School Shootings – I smell a rat

Posted by Troy on 22nd January 2013 in Current Events

Amazing…after Sandy Hook, the President and Democrats declare war on guns.  Suddenly, we have a rash of school shootings.  Even more interesting, no one seems to ever actually die in any of these school shootings.  Even more interesting, we never hear ANYTHING about who or why they did it.  I believe Sandy Hook was a crazy guy that killed these kids for some sick reason.  These other ones, I suspect.  Remember, the Communist creed, “by any means necessary.”  Do not give up your rights.  We are being played.  I don’t think it’s orchestrated by their leaders.  I think we are seeing the true believers come out though to advance the message.  For the greater good.  The ends justify the means.

Beware.

Long Live the Constitution!
