We awake this morning to the conversation over the sad event of yesterday morning in Connecticut. Several adults and twenty children lost their lives in a horrible turn of events that began with a mentally disturbed twenty year old shooting own mother at their home. He went immediately to the elementary school and unleashed a torrent of 9MM rounds into several classrooms where all of the children slain were between the ages of five and eleven making this horrific event even more tragic. No one wants to see anyone die or suffer from events such as these; it tears at the heart when you see a young mother crying in agony over the news that her child is one of the precious victims. It is an event of incredible agony and evil and leaves the most harden among us asking why?
The gun opponents immediately seized the moment to reinvigorate their opposition to gun ownership in spite of the fact Connecticut has the fifth strictest laws governing gun ownership. They will use the images to fuel their hatred of guns ignoring any facts that could contradict any claims they may have towards guns. The opponents know they have the heartstrings and concerns of good people they can manipulate into even stricter gun laws against the law-abiding citizens of this nation, and they won’t miss an opportunity such as this one.
Once again the gun will be blamed for a tragic event, but the reality of what was really the cause will be swept under the rug. Our emotions will cause us to blindly cry out for justices and once more the answer will be a call for greater gun laws. Once more we will turn our backs towards the real evil and once more somewhere in the future we will be doomed to live through another event such as this one, because we refuse as a nation to deal with the awful truth of our nation in moral decline.
We poison the minds of the younger generation with filth and violence and there is no counterbalance in return. That counterbalance would normally be in the form of a stable home environment, a God fearing home where God is first. Second a school built upon the same principles as the home with God first and self second and a teaching of the sanctity of God and life. Until we go back to those days, you could take all the guns away in this nation and absolutely nothing would change in the taking of life from the innocent, only the weapon.
