Enough of this violence. Now, what is the cause of this violence and how do we stop it?is it guns? There are 300,000,000 guns in this country. Over 3 million of them are AR-15s. There were 9500 homicides done with guns. That’s 0.003%, with a similar proportion committed with all rifles (not just AR-15’s and the like). Seems to me that if guns were the problem that number would be a LOT higher.Perhaps it’s because we teach children that violence solves problems. We suffuse our culture with violence. Quentin Taratino makes movies suffused with blood and mindless violence. Is he shunned by decent people and his films abandoned? No, he is lauded and given a golden statuette. Rappers and hip-hop musicians sing songs filled with exhortations towards violence that sell millions and are given awards. Here in Chicago the 508 killings we had last year – more Americans killed than in the Afghanistan war zone – were killed with handguns by gangsters trying to kill other gangsters, not by law-abiding people with semi-automatic rifles. When a woman gets pregnant and worries about the problems that raising a child will cause, she is permitted to kill it before it’s born – and the State will give her the money to do so if she does not have enough! We stop encouraging marriage and stop condemning single parenthood, calling people who do “conservatives” like it’s a dirty word, and when that child grows up without a father and in poverty (a redundancy) it will join a gang to replace the family it does not have, and the cycle repeats itself.Yes, we DO need to do something about violence. And the first thing we can do is recognize the real causes, abandoning political correctness.
