Violence and evil in our country, what has changed? As we discuss the latest mass shooting, what we are talking the most about, the black rifle. It has no brain or conscience. The round it shoots is capable of inflicting major trauma. Is the black rifle solely responsible for today's chaos? No; please ask ourself this question, what has changed since the '50s and '60s, when no mass shootings occurred to today when multiple have occurred.
Here is some food for thought: lack of morals, lack of respect for other people, failure to establish and maintain proper care for the mentally unstable, and payoffs to doctors and hospital administrators by big pharmacies. Judges who have no honor or integrity in measuring justice all have contributed to today's violence.
Our lack of seeking God's leadership and grace and failing to seek His path for our lives, contributes to this chaos as well.
Lastly, there is a dismal failure of the federal background checks. These checks on gun purchases should be done by the local police departments. Local information would be better utilized in purchases. Absolute scrutiny on purchasing guns should be done. No excuses. No simple answer, but better dialogue would help.
