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.

Okay. Got it.

Only women should be allowed to own guns.

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
Posted By: BonnieBlue- 10/1/2013 2:48:41 PM     Post Reply
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.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s
