Violence in America, What’s Changed?

Root and Stem

As I always say –   GO THE ROOT OF THE PROBLEM!!!!

Folks forget that many ailments seem to increase in growth if you only prune the outer edges of a problem.  As in gardening – pruning has a way of increasing growth.    If you REALLY want to eliminate the PROBLEM then you must eliminate the entire ROOT and be sure to not leave any stragglers behind as they will then begin to grow all over again.   When we tore out the ROOT of Belief in Jesus Christ we tore out the GOOD – setting up the fertile soil of SIN and disobedience.

The spread of liberalism is what’s turned the minds and hearts in America away from the Christian worldview that once was taught in our schools, predominated in our communities, and kept us safer by virtue of our shared morality….

Lawlessness is the growing rule of our day. Recent acts of evil in El Paso and Dayton once again focus our attention on violence in America. Those with an agenda know that mass shootings make headlines and are quite effective at stirring emotions for political cause.

“You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.” – Rahm Emanuel, former chief of staff for president, Barack Obama

So is it as the liberal media and politicians claim that the proliferation of firearms availability coupled with increasingly lethal weapons technology are to blame for our woes? If so, why now? Mass shootings are a relatively new phenomenon in America. We didn’t use to have this sort of thing. What changed?

Not firearms availability. Americans have had unfettered access to firearms since before we were even a nation. Prior to the 1968 Gun Control Act, firearms could be mail-ordered or purchased like any other commodity without background checks or paperwork. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) wasn’t even founded until 1972. Today over 20,000 federal, state and local gun control laws are in effect across the breadth of our nation. Guns require more effort today to be legally obtained than at any other time in our history. So availability of firearms isn’t the issue. What about guns being more lethal today than yesteryear?
