10 Inconvenient Words to Remember About the Florida School Shooting

By

With each new shooting, especially those carried out at schools, Democrats and liberals ramp up their arguments for restrictive gun control laws.

But their outrage is grossly misplaced.

Forget for a moment the argument that a new set of laws will do little to prevent criminal violence by those who don’t obey laws to begin with.

The bigger picture that liberals are ignoring is that deadly assault weapons have been available at Walmart for decades, nearly half a century, in fact. But school shootings weren’t routine 30, 40 or 50 years ago.

The guns are the same, but our values have changed.

Folks have been able to freely purchase automatic assault weapons for a very long time. But it’s only more recently (the past 10-20 years) that mass shootings have reached a level that some are calling an “epidemic.”

So, what gives?

It’s our values. 50 years ago, Americans in general adhered to a different set of values, a more conservative, family-based set of values.

We as a society have abandoned many of those values, and the violence we are seeing is a direct result of that.

It’s no coincidence that the majority of those carrying out these shootings are either neo-Nazi types or extremist liberals–the very sectors of society that most reject America’s conservative traditions.

If we really want to end this kind of violence, we need to take a more serious look at the liberal moral relativism that has infected America.
