It's actually kind of pathetic. The liberals are running around biting their knuckles and wringing their hands over all the violence. And, in their efforts to find a remedy, they are resorting to their typical approach based on feelings rather than common sense, facts and reality.
News flash — guns are inanimate objects. Guns aren't the problem. The people who misuse them are.
We are now to believe that Joe Biden is going to determine exactly what the problem is, our ultraliberal president will propose some major attack on our right to bear arms, and the liberals will assume they've addressed the problem. And we will have accomplished absolutely nothing except to surrender more freedom and give the government even more control over our lives.
In my mind, the reason for the violence is quite simple. When we eliminated God from our society, it created a vacuum. Evil rushed in to fill that void. Sound too simple?
When I was in high school in the 1950s, it was not uncommon for a student to receive a gun as a present and then bring it to school in their vehicle to show it off to their teacher during recess. I don't remember any shooting rampages and mass killings.
The First Amendment states that the government shall make no law prohibiting the free exercise of religion. The liberals have bent and twisted that to mean that God must be eradicated from our society, and they have pretty much accomplished that goal.
God is good. The opposite of good is evil. God has been virtually eliminated from our society. You do the math.
