Society is the problem

Unfortunately the U.S. has had another shooting, and all anti-constitutionalists are up in arms. When we read the paper that is all we hear. Of course our local liberal paper prints it all. But fortunately there are some wiser heads still around. Such as a school teacher, Charlene Wilson Scarf, quoted on Facebook as follows.

“Six of my students talked all the way through a moment of silence for the dead students. And you all think of an inanimate object is the problem.”

“Culture is the problem. Our music celebrates drugs, rape, gangs and murder. Our movies make millions of scenes of crime, murder and gun fights.”

“We teach the children they can do no wrong, then bash the law and order and teach them to hate authority. Society created this”.

We also have a top-notch sheriff in Ozzie Knezovich, who says just about the same thing. And a child on Facebook had a T-shirt that said “Lord why do you make so many bad things happen?” This was followed by what many of us feel would be a response: “When you took me out of the schools”.

Then to see the quote from a father who lost a child many years ago at Columbine, stating why he is a member of the NRA. Look to the internet to get the missing facts.
