Guns Don't Kill People - And Response

  • Sunday, May 28, 2023

Guns do not kill people. Young men who grow up without fathers shoot people. The single strongest predictor of poverty and criminal behavior is growing up without a father.

Basketball courts and swimming pools are good but there is no substitute for a father.

Naive at best.  Academic credentials aside. 

There are a lot of graves filled with those who have been shot by people who have a father at home. I would support Dr. Murthy, the Surgeon General of the U.S., when he mentions that loneliness is a major problem and later saying that the Social Media is a problem.  Combined, they are a major problem.   

The problem is not that there is not a father at home but how the family interacts together.  The Columbine killers had a father at home but no one was paying them attention.  They were making bombs in the garage and the parents did not know it. 

To a lot of families that are disjointed, children are a burden.  In many families the two parents are working parents who are more interested in their expensive home, the home in the mountains or on a lake, a motor home, a boat and more cars than there are people in the home. 

Be realistic.  If you are going to have children, be an active parent.
