BHO was “outraged” by latest school shooting and indicated doing something about gun control was one of the greatest frustrations of his administration. In part the attitude throughout the country about additional gun legislation which is hindering change is to blame, according to the present resident of the White House! --- as reported in various news releases on comments made by BHO.
Another school shooting? Yes, it took place in a high school in Oregon – one student dead and a teacher wounded. The perpetrator was also dead in this latest incident that is becoming rather commonplace. The present resident of the White House really geared up for his rant on this one. He is extremely frustrated because he cannot get the legislation he wants passed and blames the “attitude” about new gun laws as to why he cannot get such laws passed!
It is very clear that he does not realize (not do a majority of other political office holders) that the problem was been in the making for a few decades. It takes a while when you sow seed before you see the harvest take place. For some time our young have been “programed” to think violence! Here is a listing of major contributors: video games, computer games, tablet games, TV and Hollywood movies have produced a steady diet of violence which the young as well older persons have digested on a regular basis. With new technology and special effects the splattering of blood, brains and guts are featured continually.
And when we become frustrated about something or because of someone, thoughts easily and readily come into the mind that the issue can be resolved in a violent fashion! And so firearms often become the tool to settle things, but not always. There are other ways to injure and kill people and it has happened as in the case of a student stabbing a number of other people at his school with kitchen knives in the western Pennsylvania area! Yes, yes I already know. There are those who claim this constant exposure to violence in gaming and via film really doesn’t affect people in any way. As the years roll on with this change of “diet” in “entertainment” – a drastic change as to how it used to be, when violence was minimal and no profane language was used in movies and on TV, what is your explanation for the increase in violent outbreaks?
Another wrinkle in this mix is that for a long time our young have been the victims of a deadly brainwash operation featuring the theory of evolution. In a majority of educational institutions from elementary all the way up to graduate schools we are told that our roots go back to lower life forms. We have evolved from a simple mass of cells through various animal stages to what we are today and the end is not yet! Of course in this deadly heathen approach no God is needed nor any alleged “laws” established by Him – so therefore, you make and break the “rules” at your own convenience! Finally, the number of individuals and families involved and committed in churches that identify with the Christian faith is shrinking. One poll taken some time back indicated that on a given Sunday, with Christmas and Easter being a slight exception, the average attendance at worship is about 46 percent of our nation’s population of over 300 million! So really, we cannot get even half of our country’s population into a worship service on Sunday morning. Even the present residents of the White House demonstrate this pathetic lack of involvement most of the time when it comes to a church that identifies with Christianity!
As a result, the majority of our population has no exposure as to Who God is, what He is like by way of activity and interaction with humans such as we, and what His standards are concerning human behavior and relationships. These have no idea what God has revealed about ethics, morality, and spirituality! So, when it comes to frustration over something that has happened, or something that someone has said, I’ll resolve it in the way I’ve been programmed to do over the years – I’ll either hurt some people real bad, or kill them – the latter choice being the priority. Plus I’ll be center stage on TV and in the newspapers, for a while at least – others have done it, and so can I!
The seed has been sown over the last few decades – now it’s harvest time and part of the tragedy is that as BHO goes through his rants on the gun issue, he is blind as a bat when it comes to realizing why these things are really happening with more to come in the future!
This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. [2 Timothy 3:1-5 (KJV)].PS: In its lifetime the ancient Roman Empire came to the place where the people wanted more and more violence in their entertainment -- blood was shed to their "amusement" -- and best of all, the time came when they saw the violence which involved Christians being thrown to the lions in the Coliseum -- oh, what fun! :-(
