This is not to say we don’t need to check people properly that are buying guns, but anyone in their right mind knows that this increased violence we are having has nothing to do with current gun laws and everything to do with where these people are getting these violent and evil ideas from. It has to do with the amount of frustration, anger and lack of faith we have in our society.
As usual leaders, you miss the point completely to what is causing this. The way you are so quick to jump to gun control lets me know that you don’t know what is really going on and how to resolve these issues correctly. Therefore you are not competent at your jobs but I am sure that you have no plans to step down. The problem in this country is evil and mental illness. It is lack of proper guidance for so many growing up and the act of programming impressionable, young and already angry young men with violence found in movies, television and video games, yet I hear nothing about censorship to the very thing that gives people the ideas and instructions on how to carry out these random acts of violence. There are just too many unloved and unsupervised children growing up in America. This is a problem in itself. It becomes much worse if the babysitter, usually the TV, is a psycho.
You know from the idiot that shot up the movie theatre, he was imitating what was in the movie. It was acknowledged and discussed publicly and yet at no time was it ever suggested that we hold these people responsible for encouraging this kind of behavior. Even dysfunctional homes had guns many years ago and you never heard of this kind of evil. Most of our programming was bland with “Leave it to Beaver” type families. Now almost every drama on TV has murders. Even popular sitcoms make jokes about killing the homeless to get laid and other inappropriate comments that are not in the least funny. So much have graphic violence that either disgusts or incites the people watching it. If it doesn’t make you sick, you must like it. This is a problem. We cannot allow humans to become desensitized like this or we will continue to have the kind of violence we see daily. Stop the hypocrisy now Mr. President, before it becomes obvious by more violent acts that gun control is not the way to stop it.
