So earlier today I had a conversation with an intelligent person I know and he shared the following with me. I personally do not take any credit for
the below mentioned idea, but I can't help but share it because it darn sure makes sense.
Basically it comes down to this. America doesn't need to change it's gun laws...
If people were educated enough on gun use we wouldn't have the problems that we have today.
A good portion of the population who are gun owners don't go around killing people with them...
The people who do use them wrongly are usually poorly educated or insane... (more on this later)
If guns are illegal, people will still be able to get them just like all the drugs that are illegal and people still do. There is no law that will
prevent people from expressing their free will.
What it comes down to is this. People need education. How does that happen? Through schools. Think of it this way.. The people who use guns in crimes
are usually using them in poor neighborhoods, are insane, have some sort of vengeance they seek to fulfill, etc. Why do they feel this way? Because
they were poorly educated...
This is the root of the problem. Inner city people who use guns most likely have a limited education, and the people who are insane, such as the kid
the other week, are probably the kids in school who were ignored, sat by themselves, you see where im goin? So basically we know who the people are
who misuse their weapons, we know their history, or understand at least the scenarios that have shaped them. The kids in school who turn out to be
killers probably have years of resentment and anger that have built up inside them, the kids in the city are born into poverty, poor influence, etc.
We know what causes people to do what they do. The media and gov. keep playing stupid to this when the answers and reasons are in plain sight.
So what do we do about this? We have to focus on education! We pay football players millions to entertain us every sunday night, but teachers make a
meager $40k a year? Really? Are priorities are f$#@k$D...
We have to pay our teachers more, if anything they should be payed the most. They need to be trained to handle more responsibility. They need to be
trained to spot the kids early who could eventually turn out to be killers. How? Well its easy, you know when a kid becomes an outkast so why not help
him? There might be a bunch of redtape in getting those kids into some psychological program to restore his mental health, but thats not even what
needs to be done, that only makes it worse. Teachers need to get these students and actively engage them in solving their problems so that don't hold
onto that resentment and anger. They need to be re integrated into their class/ society. In regards to the inner city youth, the same approach needs
to be taken. In addition, the gov. needs to step up and focus on bringing up the impoverished neighborhoods up to standards. The teachers need to be
payed more so they are more willing to deal with all the bull that the deal with. Would you want to try and teach kids for $40k or less if they
didn't cooperate? Heck no, If someone paid me at least six figures then I would actively figure out how to keep all the kids happy, motivated, and
It's ashamed because the gov. doesn't want to spend any money to fix our problems and rather create new laws that are ineffective. Thats not going
to do anything.... Ugggggh... I could go on but I don't feel like typing anymore. I'm sure people see where I was going with this and can continue
on with the topic.
COD Black Ops, GTA, all the shooter video games that kids play nowadays. All it does is desensitize kids and people to death and murder. As a result,
whoever it is wont feel as pressed about killing someone. I'll tell ya what, I played all those games too, but because I was fortunate to be raised
well, and went to decent schools and never was cast out, I know better than to go shoot somebody. I'm sure many of you would concur. Point is, you
add this to the above mentioned culprits in their early stages than the problem only gets worse.
It sucks because no official or powerful figure of some sort will ever see this,
I can only pray.
Thank you for your time
