I don't believe homicidal maniacs are born - they're made. The bottom line is that some people are acting out their criminal impulses upon their neighbors, as if they have a right to do so.
Yes, I am referring to Kings, Queens, Presidents, Prime Ministers, military personnel, mafia families, gangs, not to mention your solitary street thug. They all have this one thing in common: they only care about what they want and they have no regard for the lives of those they victimize.
So, is the solution gun control? No, because your Kings, Queens, Presidents and Military personnel will still have their's, and so will all criminal elements. Gun control will only take guns out of the hands of decent folks...not the monsters of society.
So, if gun control is not the answer...what is? At the end of the day...monsters are developed in their youth, and over time, they perfect their madness.
America teaches its young (directly or indirectly) that: (1) there is no God (consequently there will be no eternal implications for one's actions); (2) Since there is no God, life is without divine purpose or meaning; (3) there are no moral absolutes, hence everything is a shade of grey; (4) they're like the animals of the field (without a spirit and without a divine calling); (5) they evolved from a common ancestor as chimpanzees (hence they, too, are susceptible to animal aggression and impulses); (6) they are just a random mutation who evolved from a primordial soup (hence there's nothing special or significant about them or their neighbors); (7) the greatest love is the love one has for one's self (hence a person should elevate their needs above all others).
These are just a few of the twisted philosophies that America is teaching its children within the school system. Then when the children go home...they arrive to an empty house. Often times, their mother is a working girl, who either never married or divorced their father. Ever since the government gifted women with "no fault" divorce decrees and the promise of preferential treatment in divorce court, not to mention government assistance - divorces have escalated, thus 80% of all divorces are filed by wives.
To recapitulate the aforementioned: what we see is the systematic brainwashing of our youth into an inferior psychological mind-set and belief system, not to mention the willful and strategic destruction of the nuclear family.
