16 Jan God or Guns?
Since the day of the Sandy Hook massacre we have been barraged by the media and politicians as to what should be done to control guns and keep our children safe. While we abhor the murder of our precious children we need to take an honest, non-political look at the true “why” behind these numerous killings. We must honestly ask “why” the most dangerous place for our children to be is in school. I would like to submit that once again we want to attack the branches on the tree while refusing to examine the root cause.
In 1963 Americans banned God from our public schools and effectively said, we don’t want to acknowledge a creator. It should be noted that prior to 1963 there seems to have never been a random attack upon innocent children in a school in America. Further it appears there were few, if any incidents of a child killing their parents and vice versa. That said, we further banned the 10 Commandments under the guise that, according to the Supreme Court, “a child might read them and be influenced by them”. So, for 50 years; 5 decades, no God; no moral compass; no concept of judgment. How can it possibly harm a child to be taught not to kill, not to steal, not to lie, to honor your father and mother etc.?
The debate will continue and society will proceed to put armed guards in schools across our land. This will not solve the problem with an amoral society who feeds its children violent video games, music filled with hatred and violence and countless movies/TV shows whose story line is guns and violence over and over and over, 24/7.
I would like to suggest Americans rise up and demand we return to our Constitutional right of Freedom OF Religion as opposed to Freedom FROM Religion. Let’s acknowledge there is a creator God and that there will be a day of judgment. Let’s start teaching children that there are consequences for their actions. The only other option is to take away our guns so that the criminals and killers are the only ones with guns. By the way, this has been proven time and time again. This will not work!
I am a licensed gun owner and I’m not giving up my Constitutional right to own guns no matter how loud these fools scream because this is not the real problem. Instead of accepting this loss of our freedom join me in barraging our political leaders with letting God back into our schools and in time we can return to sanity! Write your Congressman and your Senator today. Urge them to address the real root cause of this problem.
