Why so many shootings?????

Why so many shootings?????

PostBy: oliver power On: Fri Jun 06, 2014 10:34 pm

What the heck is going on? Many of us grew up with guns, including myself. My whole family is guns, hunting, collecting, etc.. Most all my neighbors have guns. I have guns all around me. It's been that way for many many years. We all know how to use guns, as well as respect them. I can't recall any shootings. Yet, travel one hour north of me, into the city of Rochester, and you'll have at least one shooting per night/day. Never use to be that way. But it is now. It gets worse, and worse every year.I blame it all on the drugs. It's all out of control. I don't have an answer for this, without stepping on the toes of the good guys with guns, including myself. I do agree something needs to be done. Any thoughts? Any Idea's?

Some of it is we have much quicker access to news from all around the world and across the nation which the average household didn't have just two decades ago making it seem like there are more shootings. I can't explain why all the little losers seem to want to target their fellow students unless it's just a lack of character they have. When I was growing up we had access to all sorts of unsecured firearms and ammo in almost every house in the neighborhood but not a one of us ever thought of using one because we where ridiculed, made fun of or bullied. I can only guess that the current crop of youngsters suffer from the “friends” complex and a lack of “Parent” direction. When myself and my friends were growing up we had “Parents” that had a job to teach us right from wrong and instill a moral value and say “NO” and mean it. Somewhere along the way we lost the idea parents are to be parents and not friends to their children. Little eggburt needs to learn at a young age he/she isn't special, there are millions more just like you. You will not win most of the time. You will not be the prom king/queen. You will not be popular with most other children. If you die tomorrow the world will keep on spinning without a hiccup. You will strikeout with most of the girls/guys you want to date, get a grip and welcome to the real world.

As someone said, shooting have gone down (except in Chicago) but the liberal media is supporting the Librotard movement toward gun control by moving ANY shooting to the front page where before they would be covered at the local level only. I'm just glad I don't live in NY where the new law puts ANYONE at risk of having their guns confiscated if ANYONE speaks out against them as a 'potential risk'. Scary, scary sheeet. And now Pa. with the right of the cops to search your car without a warrant and miraculously find that bag of cocaine in your trunk that used to be in the palm of their hand! Off to jail and the Sheriff gets your car. Don't you just love liberal Judges who say it's constitutional?

A combination copycats the overblown sensationalism by the media has to play a very big roll. A lot of these people are looking for attention or want to make a name for themselves and there is no faster way of doing that than killing a bunch of people.

Hey, never discount the fact that there are people with agendas and many pre-written volumes of legislation waiting for the right moment to exploit.

The choice and method of media coverage is deliberate.

Life can be tragic while a great deal of it can be very wonderful. Instead much attention is given over to reprobate things.

Society, & progressivism. I should say, society as a RESULT of progressivism.

This is the result of not being able to discipline your kid without going to jail for "assault" (in which case they'll take YOUR guns away, because your "violent").

It's the result of "every kid gets a trophy" - everyone wins, everyone is equal - progressive ideology at it's finest ....... and then we send them out into the REAL world ...... :|

Anything Christian, or God-related is now bad. Religion is under attack everyplace you turn. Just the mention of God in a public school causes all kinds of commotion.

So, progressives teach our kids that THEY are the boss - not their parents. The there is NO God, just the all-powerful hand of government, and that they are "special" and "entitled". Factor in the garbage that pop culture (I.E. Hollywood) pumps out every day - music, movies, internet .... garbage in, garbage out!

Is it any wonder kids are going off the deep end? They're all dead inside!

This country has ceased to instill in kids the difference between right and wrong, simple as that. Extremely difficult to re-adopt the principle but easy to see what is required. Mike

You nailed it Smitty. We grew up God fearing and parent fearing. I remember what a belt or strap feels like. I remember wanting a trophy or wanting to win a game but not getting one because we didn't win by no fault but our own. And we were told that it was because we did not try as hard as the other team or person and practice the next day was twice as hard. We were not told well you tried here is your trophy. We were not taught that it was not fair that we or I lost. We were taught that there is no such thing unfair. You just need to try or work harder.

Hypersensitivity
Increased irritability

very, very well said! Now all we need is to impeach, arrest, and jail about a dozen or more traitors who have infiltrated our top levels of government and courts.
