The U.S.A. has a culture problem, not a gun problem.


The U.S.A. has a culture problem, not a gun problem.
Declining family and moral structure breeds an increase in disaffected and aimless youth. It really comes down to a rejection of godliness which in turn results in social destruction.
Consider that the Dunblane massacre in Scotland left 16 students and their teacher dead. The assailant used a pistol and a revolver. [1] The Nice truck attack left 87 people dead, the assailant used a Renault Midlum cargo truck. [2] The Kyoto Animation arson attack in Japan left 36 people dead. The assailant used gasoline. [3] The Kerch Polytechnic College massacre in Russia left 20 people dead. The assailant used a shotgun and a knife. [4]
It's not the tool that is at fault, rather, it's the mind/spirit/motive behind the user of the particular tool. It's also the influences that shape that mind/spirit/motive. Healthy food and exercise produces good physical health, healthy parenting, godliness and personal responsibility produces a healthy and functional society.
The reason the USA has a Second Amendment is to serve as a deterrent to governmental tyranny because an armed populace decentralises the available use of lethal force away from a government monopoly. Historically speaking, it is governments which have been the greatest mass murderers of all. [5]
Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Limit government power and promote a culture that teaches love for one another, empathy, forgiveness, personal responsibility and encourages good parenting.
