A statement issued by the U.S. Department of Justice concerning the murders in South Carolina: " ... And I want to be clear that the individual who committed these acts will be found and will face justice." Face justice? And then what? Will 9 people rise up from the dead and go on about their business? We need to stop focusing on "after the fact" and focus on "prevention". That means young children must be taught as much about morality and loving one another in the public school system as they are about reading, writing, and the love of money.

Yes, there must be follow through. However, children are being taught to be cogs in the wheel of capitalism. I believe what you say, but I hardly think as much time is spent on morality as mathematics, reading, etc..Morality must supercede all .
I wouldn't even consider buying a kid a gun. People who advocate guns, even for self defense, completely miss the point that Jesus made in many ways. If we focus on goodness and love, there will be no need for self-defense.
