As the gun-control debate rages, the left continues to miss the point or, more likely, chooses to ignore it. It is heartbreaking to see innocent children and adults murdered in acts of gun violence across our country, but, sadly, these incidents prove once again that evil exists in society. Liberals can say what they want. The truth is that those who use guns to express their frustration and unhappiness are deeply disturbed and evil resides in their hearts. Nothing else can explain why an individual would slaughter innocent people in cold blood, especially children. To blame gun violence on the guns rather than those who pulled the trigger makes as much sense as shutting down the New York subway system because the trains have killed people, abolishing baseball bats because someone was beaten with one, or taking away cars because of drunk drivers. Since stricter gun-control laws make no sense, the real motivation of the anti-gun lobby must be to disarm the opposition—literally.
Columbine High School survivor Craig Scott, who lost his sister and several close friends during the tragic shooting incident in April, 1999 has stated clearly what liberals do not want to admit: “What happens when you are a person that grows up today and at school you’re not taught about character, integrity or values…at school you are picked on and bullied and at school teachers care more about your test scores and your knowledge and your academic achievement than the condition of your heart,” Scott said. “And when we were concerned about the heart we were number one in the world in education as a first world nation. On the deepest level, these are spiritual problems that we are having in our country.”
In today’s society where we call the murder of innocent children by abortion “choice,” human life has lost its value. When our so-called leaders at the highest levels fight hard to protect a woman’s right to kill her unborn child for the sake of convenience, why are we surprised when evil people pick up a gun and start killing indiscriminately? In our schools we teach that abortion on demand is acceptable, and then we are shocked when a student picks up a gun and kills.
