I've had a few days to stew and the flavors of the soup have blended.
I heard one commentator say that the problem is not the weapon - it's the culture.
WISDOM SPEAKS: (Proverbs 8:36)
but he who fails to find me injures himself;
all who hate me love death
On one hand, the man who killed all those people clearly failed to find wisdom. Perhaps he was incapable of finding it. Did he "hate" it? Maybe not, but he was the bringer of death.
But extend that out.
We have a president (Mr. Obama) who is saying that we must prevent this tragedy from happening again.
1) all who hate wisdom love death.
2) leftists have cultivated a culture of death.
The collective agreement to stand against ANY law that could restrict ANY abortion is evidence.
But beyond that (and not only leftists are guilty)
movies, video games, RPG's, music...all of these have become increasingly violent.
I remember "pacman" where a mento with a mouth gobbled dots.
Now, a "first person shooter" kills realistic looking enemies, with realistic looking weapons.
Do we really think this doesn't have some sort of effect?
It's not the weapon. It's the culture.
Ruminate on that.
