Does it matter the source?

I fail to see what's wrong with that statement. Every social interaction we have is an attempt at engineering a response favorable to us.

Teaching right from wrong. I think we can all agree that's a good thing. Teaching that maybe it's a good thing to say "# it", and walk away whenever possible.


Nothing is wrong with it except that once upon a time, we had what she is calling. It was widespread, and then we started to malign a thing that was already embedded in our culture so that people stopped engaging in it.

Now we see the results, and suddenly we realize that we need what we maligned as bad.

Now, I understand that it wasn't specifically those things that were maligned as bad, but when we cut our faith, those were things that were also widely taught as a part of our faith background, and by losing our religion, so to speak, we were also losing those things.

Unintended side effects ...

Maybe.

Maybe the “Solution” is as simple as making gun violence as socially distasteful as smoking has become?

Maybe, if gun owners became the equivalent of (tobacco) smokers (can’t disrupt tall that new tax revenue from MJ!); pittied for their “addiction”?

Who knows, maybe “big Pharma” will develop a pill to help gun owners “break the habit”.

Disgruntled smokers blow smoke in your face when tired of being a whipping boy. Wonder what rabid gun owners will do when made the social pariah of the moment?

Depends on how mature the rabid gun owners are.

Likely it will be something that gets them arrested, forced into rehab, their guns confiscated, and their right to own a gun forever forfeited.

The problem is we will never fix our kids they way we live now, the whole of society and how we live needs to change from the bottom up. This includes how we parent and educate children right through to our financial systems. We can't find the time now to reach our kids, without changes to how we survive financially there is no opportunity to make the necessary changes needed.

The only way is to start from the beginning of a child's life but that doesn't address our ability to teach the lessons required if we started tomorrow, we would have a major percentage of adults that aren't prepared enough to take on the job so we would need to educate a vast amount of adults before we even started, and the list goes on.

All you can implement now is some stop gap measures that probably won't make much of a difference which just adds fuel to the fire in the long run. It's unfortunate that we always try to take the quickest and easiest route, we could very easily live in a much better world.
