As usual, President Obama is missing the real problem in America. Obama likes to blame guns because it is an easy scapegoat. It is easy to pinpoint gun manufacturers and place a name and face on the source of the problems.
In comparison, mental illness doesn't have a source. There is no one to blame. Even more so is the concept of "evil," which is only spoken of and only acknowledged to exist shortly after such tragedies, then we once again return to denying it. The problem is he preaches racial divide and anti-Christian sentiment, which is why these mentality disturbed people are taking unprecedented actions. In a free country, you cannot stop lone wolf actions. Obama is not a leader and states more government control is the solution.
Chicago has some of the strictest gun control laws in the country, yet, since these strict gun controls have been enacted, violent crime has skyrocketed by 50 percent. If someone is willing to violate the most sacred law of "Thou shall not kill," why would they even care about a "silly" regulatory law? The only people who will respect gun control laws are the people who wouldn't commit crimes in the first place, law-abiding citizens.
Why? Because law-abiding citizens can no longer defend themselves against the people who will obtain weapons and kill regardless of the law. Why are schools being targeted? If you're an evil or disturbed person wishing to do other people harm, they are ripe for the taking. You can be sure you'll "score" a significant kill count before anyone can resist.
Never miss a local story.
America needs to grow up. It's time to tackle the serious issues that have no simple answer, rather than strip away the carefully considered and granted rights of its citizens.
