Guns don´t kill people but
our sons do; let´s focus on them

Clarion-Ledger [Jackson, MS], by Warren Farrell

Original Article

Posted By:BonnieBlue, 1/8/2013 4:30:05 PM

After Newtown, Conn., parents cried out, “What’s making our children kill?” But it is not our children who are killing. It is our sons. All but one of the 62 mass killings in the past 30 years was committed by boys or men. We respond by blaming guns, our inattentiveness to mental health, violence in the media or video games, or family values. All are players, but our daughters find the same guns in the same homes, are about as likely to be mentally ill, have the same family values and are exposed to the same violence in the media. Our daughters, however, do not kill. Why the difference?

It´s not the gun. It´s who´s pulling the trigger.

How many of these ´kids´ never met their father, or if they did they were one of the kids spread among 11 ´baby mamas´.

Mr. Farrell may be correct with his assertion, but is wrong if he thinks this White House would really want to solve a problem. Democrats don´t want to solve problems. This wouldn´t give them anything to run on.

Why does the Army and Marine Corps recruit young men ?

Because they make good killers.

Girls take too long to get ready.

#2 has a point about the 11 mamas, and yet it seems to be all white boys who commit the mass murders, not black or hispanic. That should also be looked into. The black boys without fathers seem to have perhaps more of a propensity for one on one violence but not mass shootings.

#6, beltway sniper and the other sniper mentioned in an article the other day because it was an anniversary of his killing spree. Black shooters, random white victims. Take out the inner city black gun criminals and the US moves up quite a bit in the violence rankings. The other statistical factor is the number of white vs black in the population. Don´t expect a word on this problem in all the new proposals to ban and confiscate firearms, starting tomorrow in NY state.

How many were raised in families where they were not allowed to play with toy guns, as boys do, but were given baby dolls and dresses instead?

It´s our sick society that´s spawning the shootings.

Why did we not have this cultural violence in the fifties & sixties?
Looks at what´s changed.
There´s the answer.

Might I suggest the intentional emasculation of white males in this country and the feminist drive to disenfranchise men from their rightful place as leaders of house and home in favor of female dominated households (even in stable 2 parent homes) might, just might be contributing to this trend?

Weak, beta, blue pill dad dominated by overbearing asexual Oprah worshiping mom is the new trend in all parts of white society, even the church going part. Look into red pill/blue pill reality in the current manosphere blogroll. Strong dominant fathers and husbands are good for kids and wives. It is also Biblical for those who ascribe to Christianity, despite what the churches may teach mostly by example.

The way things are isn´t the way they should be if we really do love our kids as much as we say we do.

The dumbocrap solution to this might just be castration at birth for all those male children not born to the "approved for reproduction" elite. Guess who they´ll be.

There have always been serial killers and Americans have always had guns but mass shootings are relatively recent. In almost every case, if not EVERY case, the shooter has been in mental care treatment and given drugs that clearly state they may cause suicidal thoughts and other violence. It´s the drugs, not the guns. Guns have always been available. Boys vs girls -- I don´t know--but a lot has to do with our culture making fathers (males) disposable. What else do they have to do? Golf, anyone!

Information released yesterday in courtroom testimony was that police removed several bottles of prescription pills belonging to the shooter at the Aurora, Colorado theater.

Don´t look for LeftMedia to mention it, though.

#10, LOL!

Actually, serial killers were really not heard of much until the late 19th Century. I think there are a LOT of different factors behind this, but one thing that folks forget about is the rat experiment. We are getting more crowded in smaller spaces like the rats who started killing and eating each other. This is only one small contributing factor, but definitely a contributor. Lack of God and a moral compass; lack of stable 2 parent nuclear families; mass media glorifying the perverse, violent and evil; etc. etc. etc.

BTW, our daughters are killing too. Just not at as high a rate but they are a growing number.

Generations of little boys are now medicated with powerful drugs (e.g. Ritalin) for the crime of being a little boy... many have no father-figure to guide them and their mother-figures are incapable of dealing with them... drug ´em and hang the dangers and consequences. Just sayin´.

The flawed assumption in all the "we have to do..." responses is that society can actually find some something that will stop crazies from being crazies.

Well one possible explanation could be the fact that the wussies who populate our school system can´t handle the totally normal behaviour of little boys. So what do they do? They drug them into little robots. When the press decides to get honest about their reporting, I think that the teachers unions in this country will have a lot to answer for in regards to the monsters they have created.

Aurora, Columbine, Newtown etc - All of these killers were on anti-depressant medication. Studies indicate that medications - particularly anti-depressants work very differently on males versus females. I´d start there - the gun issue is a red herring rolled into an agenda to grab absolute power - nothing else.

"Our daughters, however, do not kill" using guns. They prefer abortion instead: Over 330 thousand last year, at Planned Parenthood alone. How many millions since Roe and Wade? .

´Greatest generation´ veterans sweep past
barricades at memorial in their honor
Fox News, by Edmund DeMarche    Original Article

What was meant to be a final gathering of heroes Tuesday instead became a final victory for dozens of World War II combat vets who refused to let the government´s budget battle block a visit to their memorial in the nation´s capital. With bagpipers playing "Amazing Grace," nearly 200 veterans from Mississippi and Iowa swept past barricades and security guards at the World War II Memorial in Washington in order to keep a commitment to visit the site, which was closed today due to the partial government shutdown. The veterans, in their 80s and 90s, were accompanied by

Capt. Hugh Walker’s fighter pilot call sign is “Hoot” — which once stood for Hick Opposes Orthodontic Treatment … Now he is known as something else: The No. 1 fighter pilot in the Air Force. Walker, 31, who has flown an F-16 jet on some 160 combat missions over Iraq, Libya and Afghanistan, recently received the Robbie Risner Award, which is given to the Air Force officer who makes the biggest combat impact in the first year after graduation from the Weapons Instructor Course at Nellis Air Force Base, located in North Las Vegas.

Obama to free hundreds of drug
felons under clemency rules
designed to un-do mandatory
sentences from ´War on Drugs´ era

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Dole: Cruz, Paul & Rubio

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Michelle Obama:

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

Fraud runs rampant in Census Bureau

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss
