Gun Control is not About Guns and it is NOT the Answer to Mass shootings: I Have the Answer to Stopping Mass Shootings

By Greg Holt

(The Olive) After the recent Florida school shooting there has of course been the inevitable cry once again to ban the AR-15, it’s a dangerous assault rifle you know.

Actually, that could not be more untrue – the AR-15 is not an assault rifle nor is it a high-powered rifle, it’s not even a fully automatic rifle, which is the impression you get listening to some of the fools in the media who have no idea what they are talking about.

When was the last time you heard a call to ban the 22 Rifle? Never happened right? The AR-15 is basically a .22 caliber semi-automatic rifle. Yes it can fire other rounds such as the 5.56 NATO – which is basically a .22 bullet with a little more gunpowder behind it.

If we are going to ban the AR-15, we will need to ban the .22 rifle and the .223 rifle as well, after all they are all 22s. The media engineered frenzy over the AR-15 is completely ridiculous. It is a simple rifle many use for target practice given it’s high accuracy and even home defense – oh yeah, and it looks cool too.

With the recent Florida school shooting and the Las Vegas massacre before that – and given the fact that so many (mainly Leftist gun grabbers) are clamoring for gun control, President Trump has ordered the Justice Department to initiate the banning of “bump stocks”.

Bump stocks are another misunderstood piece of equipment thanks in large part to the media’s exaggerations and outright lies. The media, and I even heard Fox News inaccurately report this today – say that bump stocks allow a semi-automatic rifle to fire as a fully automatic weapon like a machine gun or an M-16. This is not true, bump stocks allow much faster firing of a semi-automatic rifle, but the rifle is not full on automatic.

The problem with banning bump stocks is they can easily be made at home cheaply. A simple Google search – “can I make my own bump stock” yields over 10 million results, a bump stock can even be made using a 3D printer! Are the police going to be sent into every home in America to check if anyone has made their own bump stock?

The real problem we face with the mass shootings in this country has absolutely nothing to do with guns, and everything to do with people. Guns have been in this country for a long time, everybody and their brother has a gun. However, twenty years ago, there were not many if any mass shootings. What changed, the guns or we the people? Unless you are an idiot, you know the answer to this question. Make all the gun control laws you want, it’s not going to fix the problem of mass shootings and increased violence until the real underlying problems are addressed.

The outright banning of guns – which is what the Leftist Liberal fools are after BTW, will accomplish nothing. Oh wait, I’m wrong, it willaccomplish something. Banning guns in America (like Australia did) will hand over power to the criminals. It will also enable the government (whom will still possess guns) to control the people. If a criminal knows that no one is allowed to have weapons any longer, then EVERY American has a target painted on their back. Illegal or not, the criminal element WILL get guns, if you disagree, you are a fool.

I have the perfect example for you, America’s schools. K-12 schools are mandated “gun free zones” – this is the most ignorant policy ever devised. Our children and the teachers and other staff are sitting ducks for anyone who decides to waltz in the door with weapons in hand. Just check out the Florida school shooting if you doubt that. Schools and everyone in them have a huge target painted on their backs that effectively screams – shoot me, I can’t stop you!

How to Stop Mass Shootings

In our schools, we need to immediately end this “gun free zone” idiocy. Armed guards and possibly armed teachers along with the installation of metal detectors would pretty much end the mass shooting problem. But you will say, people don’t like exposing their kids to metal detectors and armed staff – well would you rather expose them to their friends being shot to death? Metal detectors are in airports, many government buildings etc., why not schools? How much is your child’s life worth?

The main problem in America with all the shootings and violence is this: parenting. Yes I said parenting. Not all parents obviously, but a great many. Through the various jobs I have done over the years, I have been in many homes, many, many, many, homes. The things I have seen are utterly appalling.

When I was growing up, mass shootings were unheard of, why is that? Parenting.

Lets look at the differences here. Years ago, parents actually parented! Parents knew what their kids were doing, where they were, and who their friends were. Parents searched their children’s rooms if need be, too bad if we did not like it. There was discipline when we did wrong, we were afraid to come home from school after screwing up, because we knew we were in trouble. Parents worked with the teachers, not telling them to F off.

Today it’s a whole different ball game. What passes for parenting in many households is an extremely bad joke, and this so-called parenting is harming the children who have no idea how to function in society while at the same time having no idea what it is like to feel loved and cared for. If parents today actually parented, and God was an important fixture in the life of today’s kids, most of these problems would evaporate.

What are the Common Problems in Parenting Today?

As I said, I have personally seen a lot of what goes on in today’s homes; I have as well worked with problem teens. A common factor is lack of parenting and if the kids/young adults are honest, they feel a distinct lack of love from their parents.

When parents use the Internet, TV, movies, and video games as the preferred method to entertain and occupy their children, well bad things come of that. Parents don’t spend time with their kids; instead they buy them video games, videos, the Internet, and have no idea what their children are really doing. They allow their kids to watch violent movies, play very violent video games, (after all, it’s only a game right?) let them come and go as they please, have no idea who their friends are, and basically have no clue how their own children spend their time. When there are the inevitable problems in school, parents scream and curse at the teachers and blame them for their child’s poor behavior!

I want you to take the time to read this rant posted on Facebook that a Florida school teacher made, it is so spot-on that every teacher, every politician, everyone who works with kids, and every parent should be required to read it, no kidding. It will only take a minute of your time.

Florida schoolteacher’s epic (and true) rant on the reason for mass shootings etc.

Until everyone in this country understands that strong, loving parenting, the value of a strong family, and the reverence of God is what is needed – nothing is going to change. All the laws, all the rules, all the punishment, and all the empty headed talking heads – will make no difference at all. None of what is being done today has worked yet has it? What makes anyone think the same course of action is going to work tomorrow?

Jesus Cries

Please excuse me if I misspell a word or make no sense for a split second for the tears streaming down my face are hindering my way. I feel like they are the tears of the Lord Jesus as He watches what is going on in our world.

I cry for the children who are being used as pawns for the evil within hearts of many. The Lord said to bring the children to Him. I am, Lord. I am lifting up these innocent souls for Your care. I pray You put a stop to the madness that we are witnessing here within these United States that You have poured out Your grace on. I pray You forgive them for they know not what they do.

I take that back. They know exactly what they are doing! They are robbing this child of knowing the love and nurturing of a father. He will never feel his loving arms around him or experience the gruff whisper in his ear of his father’s voice or feel whiskers scratch his face as a kiss is planted on his cheek.  He will never hear him laugh with him as he rough houses with him before telling him it’s time to go to sleep. He will never know what it’s like to have Daddy toss him a ball or take him to a ball game or go fishing with Dad. They know exactly what they are doing and they do not care! They are giving You the “finger!” For the enemy has deceived them and turned their hearts to him.

They know exactly what they are doing and what God calls an abomination they have rallied and won the skirmish. This little girl will never know what her mother’s love truly is. She will never know the special smile of Mama as she twirls in a new dress or to go shopping with that special mother-daughter relationship that only a daughter and mother can have as they try on clothes and giggle at a funny hat they try on. She won’t know the tender kisses of a soft woman’s cheek against hers. She’ll only know the scratchiness of a beard, the smell of a man, not the fragrance of a Mom. There will be no Mom to help her pick out her prom dress or show her how to put make-up on. No Mom to help with wedding plans. No, she will only have the males perspective and we know how that can be. They know exactly what they are doing – spitting in Your face!

We cry, the Lord and I, as children are being ripped apart, limb by limb, MURDERED, for what? MONEY! GREED! I cannot fathom a human being so cold and hard-hearted that being careful not to crush the organs is vital to their evil purposes. Oh my dear God how Satan has taken control of these vile, evil people! How do You stand to see this all happening and not scream and pull your hair out? No wonder You flooded the earth! Maybe You should do it again. The evil is unconscionable. They laugh out loud and scream, “God? I am god!”

We cry, the Lord and I, at those who are supposed to help, protect, and defend the innocent, instead use their power to throw them back into the violence of abusive homes. We cry at how many children are being sexually abused. I cry because I know their pain and the hopelessness they feel. We cry, the Lord and I, because it isn’t suppose to be this way. We were given children to love and grow, and teach. They throw the victim aside as though tossing rotten meat in the garbage. They know not what they do? Oh YES THEY DO!

Oh, but the tears fall steadily as we cry, the Lord and I. What is now being taught to the innocent is atrocious. You Lord, created male and female! Now children are being told they are not boys, they are not girls! It gets even worse! What is now being shoved down their young throats isn’t something that a child should ever have to learn. Their minds are too young. Their comprehension not developed. Their understanding not there. Oh how we cry, the Lord and I, at the brainwashing that is taking place within walls that is supposed to educate not manipulate the young minds of the innocent for the perverse actions of grown ups. Children do not need to be taught about oral and anal sex! Nor incest! They know what they do! They are doing it methodically and intentionally! Where is the outcry, Lord!? Why are the teachers and the parents allowing this to be done to the innocent? I want to scream. WAKE UP! I want to scream, STAND UP! I want to scream, TEACHERS REFUSE TO TEACH IT! PARENTS STORM THE SCHOOL BOARDS! JERK YOUR KIDS OUT OF SCHOOL IF NECESSARY!  My God where are their guts?

Oh, Jesus, help us. Wipe my tears, wipe Your tears and come. Let Your presence be known. And have no mercy on the evil that is being perpetrated on Your little ones.
