Letter: Gun control won’t prevent mass shootings in U.S.
We see horrible incidents of mass shootings of innocent folks who are just trying to live there lives all around the country.
The first thing that comes up is more gun control. I’ve heard differing numbers, such as 60 million gunowners in the country and only a few depraved souls out shooting people at random. That makes gun control a moot point.
Mind control is the problem here, not gun control.
We have made God a bad name. We see nothing but violence on TV, movies and video games. We tell our children they have a “right” to be and do whatever feels good with no regard for anybody else.
The news media sensationalizes these few cases as horrible, and they are for the victims, their families and friends. And the sick-minded people somehow think that going out in a blaze of media attention is a good thing.
We have to again teach our children the fear of God and restore some moral compass, with self sacrifice toward others.
It won’t be easy to unscrew the society we have helped create, but it is the only path out of the mess we are living in now.
All that out-of-control gun control will do is start a civil war.
I’m just sharing what I think and what I hear in my travels for those folks out there living in a bubble.
Walmart’s recent announcement about banning open carry and selling ammo sparked this tirade, I guess.
