Another problem is that kids are treated as if they can do no wrong.  Self-esteem conditioning does not prepare kids for failure.  Moreover, it contributes to an outlook lacking in empathy and consideration for others.  I believe this leads to the shootings more than anything.  Often, the shooters are highly self-centered and lacking in empathy.  The media could help by not plastering their names all over the news.

The Soap box! / Gun Control
« Last post by retired82 on February 24, 2018, 07:21:09 AM »
It's strange that when a bomber sets off a bomb, it the person's fault. When a drunk driver kills someone with a auto, it's the person's fault. When a person shots people it's the guns fault. I fail to understand that thinking. Mass shooting in my opinion is a society issue, not a gun issue.

I look at the youth today. Many are inside playing games on the computer. Some are outside playing some type sport. The ones playing sports are healthier both physically and mentally. The kids playing games on the computer involving a lot of killing(blood and gore) are maybe becoming immune to the violence.

I read the other day 71% of America's males are unfit for the military. They are over weight, out of physical condition or have mental issues. The Army is doing away with the Hand Grenade throw as a requirement to graduate from basic training because so many are unable to pass the test.

We need to do better with our Children.

OK...I'll shut up.

Calvin Coolidge aptly noted that people are more concerned about enforcement of the law than observation of it.

I have a feeling this is not going to end good for Clayton County. Nathan Deal supports it.

I saw the strong dislike of Law Enforcement spike under President Obama. When he said the police were stupid. This later resulted in the "Beer summit at the White House. President Obama was quick to speak ill of law enforcement and his Justice Department was not a friend of Law Enforcement either.

Its time for drastic methods to stop this madness of shooting at police officers. What they need to do in Georgia, is get tough on it. Shoot and kill a police officer, mandatory death sentence if convicted. Shoot at a police officer, mandatory twenty years, if convicted.
