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´.

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

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

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) is now accusing the Keystone pipeline of being a cancer risk. Her first point was that the pipeline “will bring 830,000 barrels of dirty tar sands oil into our nation every day.” She then segued to point #2 by asserting that the heavy tar sands oil will put people who live near refineries at risk for cancer: Significantly higher levels of dangerous air pollutants and carcinogens have been documented downwind from tar sands refineries, and in these areas people are suffering higher rates of the types of cancers linked to these toxic chemicals, including leukemia and

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving
