Our young ones or guns? Who do we love more?
With estimate of more than 300 million guns in the U.S., do you feel your kids are safe? According to CDC, more than 460 kids, 14 and under, lost their lives as a result of growing gun-violence in 2014 alone.
No, our kids are not safe. We have a culture that glorifies guns, glorifies violence. Being nice seems to have gone out of style. Gotta be Tough, baby. Tough. Mess with me? BANG. We don't teach them to talk...listen....understand another's point of view. It's more like,"Get away from them, Johnny...they're not like us". Guns are a cowards way out, IMO. We are breeding a nation of cowards. Killing with no idea what you are doing! Do you realize it's another LIFE there? Or is it like a figure on a video screen? Guns, wars, poverty...no our kids are not safe, because there is no profit in safety! Make Love, not War!!!
Glorifying violence is a real problem, especially in the disconnected world of entertainment that increases the mindset of lack of regard for life.
And the news! They repeat everything titillating, just to get a rise. They like it when everyone's glued to the set, waiting on latest blood and gore. Meanwhile, these are people's loved ones. BANG . Over. Forever.
Cst LA vie?? I don't think so!
No one is absolutely safe; however, I don't believe that guns are actually the cause. The causes are multifaceted, and include the glorification of violence, the lack of consideration for others, over the top selfishness, and a lack of regard for life. We see some of these factors in other societal problems like animal abuse, child abuse, spouse abuse, and abortion. If the hearts of most of the people were transformed from within, we'd see a very different society.
Ahem. Japan. They have the same media we have (and much more, too), but also have extremely restricting gun laws, and extremely minimal cases of violent crime. What now?
Well, the organized crime in Japan is an interesting study that plays a huge part in that unique society's reported criminal activity. There is quite a meaningful debate going re the use of criminals by organized crime groups.
Australia provides with another proof on how restricting guns can help stop incidents of mass shooting. They have a very similar society and media too.
