Shooting reported at Connecticut elementary school; another disaster:
The picture of the little girl in the blue sweater tells the whole story. Look at the terror and shock on all of these poor little kids faces. What a tragedy that our younger generation will have to grow up in such a violent society. They are going to be raised to think that this is the way things are supposed to be.
No one can not convince me that the video games and the movies play a very big part in commission of these crimes. The kids today have a big problem trying to separate reality from fiction; plus the role models they have are a lot to be desired.
All we have to do is to take a person that is a “boarder line case” that sits in front of their computer or TV killing hundreds of people at a time on a video game; it doesn’t take much for that person to cross the line.
It isn’t going to be too far down the road that more and more kids are home schooled.
A few years back I would see parents standing at the end of their driveways with their kids waiting for the school bus and I would say to myself “what the hell is the matter with those parents, they are spoiling their kids by coddling them too much”, now I say “I don’t blame them”!
Because of the news coverage and the media these “copy cat” criminals all want to make a name for them-self by trying to out-due the maniac before them.
I can guarantee that as I am blogging this; there are hundreds of nut cases trying to figure out how to “top” the physco before them.
You can bet that the sick kid in Portland was trying to upstage the people he had read or heard about in these mass shootings and was trying to best them.
I really don’t think there is an answer to these dreaded situations. The biggest problem society faces is; no one can be arrested until they commit a crime; then it is too late.
One partial solution that will take years to take effect is to absolutely ban the sales of all military assault weapons such as AR-57’s. If that law was enacted today, it may take 30 – 40 years to get all of the weapons that are out there now off the streets.
I think the NRA is a great organization but if they and anyone else does not see the value in the banning of the assault weapons based on the conditions we have today, there is something wrong with them.
If this is what is called progress ladies and gents; I will take the old days anytime
