New NRA Leader Sets Record Straight on School Shootings in One Sentence

Nailed it.

Published

New National Rifle Association President Oliver North weighed in on the recent school shooting in Texas and let it be known in no uncertain terms that the Second Amendment isn’t the root of the problem and that limiting gun rights isn’t going to solve anything.

His comments come two days after a 17-year-old Santa Fe High School Student opened fire in the school, killing 10 people and injuring 13 others. This was the 16th school shooting this year.

“I believe that we can make sure kids are protected without taking away the rights of law-abiding citizens,” North, a former Marine Corps lieutenant colonel, told “Fox News Sunday.”

North called for metal detectors in schools and pushed the National Rifle Association’s “school shield” agenda, which he said offers school’s a free security assessment that includes looking at how people enter and exit buildings.

North on Sunday also suggested that much or at least part of the problem with school shootings is young people, mostly males, being exposed to a culture of violence and being on Ritalin, a medication prescribed largely to help with attention deficit disorder, or ADD.

“We are trying like the dickens to treat the symptoms, not the disease,” North later said. “The disease isn’t the Second Amendment.”

North is spot on in his assessment, as these school shootings are indicative of a cultural problem, not a problem with the right to bear arms.

Just think about it. Why have these shootings become so common all of the sudden? It’s been hundreds of years since the founding of our nation and the passage of the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Yet the vast majority of violent incidents at school have taken place in the last twenty or thirty years, most occurring in the last decade.

Why?

Well, for starters, parents are less involved in their childrens’ lives, many having to work extremely long hours just to make ends meet. On top of that you have the erosion of the traditional family unit by liberals pushing gay marriage and transgenderism.

Without the presence of a strong male figure, a loving, nurturing mother, and a support system like the local church and schools reinforcing positive moral, biblical values taught in the home, you get a lost and confused generation like the kids growing up now, who are angry, feel cheated, and have no idea what to do with all of those conflicting emotions.

It’s a recipe for disaster.

The root of the problem is our nation’s shift to utter godlessness both at home, in the church, and at school. Without a solid, objective foundation for truth and morality, today’s children have no direction.

If you really want to change this phenomenon, then we need to start with culture, not politics.

Cable News Blasted for Conjuring Controversy in Columbus Police Shooting

This is just dirty.

The sad truth of the matter, when it comes to the mainstream media, is that they are more successful when we are more emotional. It’s a dirty trick of human biology:  The chemicals in our brain that allow us to feel joy, sorrow, humor, and fury are just similar enough to one another that we become addicted to them, one and all.  Feeling something stimulates our self-awareness, and we learn to crave it. So, when you tune into CNN and what they are saying angers you, they’re planting small hooks in your noggin, reeling you in to watch the commercials that pay all of their salaries. If you watch Fox, however, and you find yourself enthusiastically cheering after a host or guest has a mic drop moment, your brain again finds what it’s looking for, and here you are seeing your 14th Progressive commercial of the day. All of the big networks know this and actively participate in this salacious shamanism, and sometimes they cross the line. Liberal outlets HuffPost and AJ+ omitted key details or pushed false narratives in their videos about the fatal police shooting of a Black teenager in Columbus, Ohio on Tuesday. HuffPost failed to note the woman who was shot, Ma’Khia Bryant, pushed another female to the ground and lunged at another with a knife when police arrived at the scene. The misleading HuffPo video was accompanied by the following text, which appeared to paint the police as the villain. “Black girl killed by police,” the text read. “Police in Columbus, OH shot & killed a Black teen around the same time the verdict was read in the Derek Chauvin trial. Body-camera footage showed an officer firing several times at Ma’Khia Bryant before she collapsed to the ground. The video also showed a knife falling next to the…

Derek Chauvin on Suicide Watch, Away From General Population

Chauvin’s incarceration will certainly not be a pleasant one once he leaves isolation.

There is little doubt that Derek Chauvin is going to have a bad time in jail.  The former police officer was just convicted on several charges stemming from his involvement in the death of George Floyd, with one those charges being murder in the 3rd degree. Chauvin’s sentence won’t be known for some time, likely about 8 weeks, so there’s no telling just where he’ll wind up serving his time.  But ex-cops don’t fare all that well in certain prisons, and there will almost certainly be an incentive to tangle with the guy while he’s on the inside. For the time being, however, Chauvin is being kept separate from the general population, out of fear for his safety. Derek Chauvin has been pictured in his first mugshot taken at the maximum security prison in Minnesota where he’s on suicide watch after being found guilty on all three counts of murder and manslaughter in the death of George Floyd. The Minnesota Department of Corrections released the new booking photo on Wednesday morning as Chauvin woke up from his first night at MCF-Oak Park Heights. The 45-year-old dressed in an orange jumpsuit appeared tired and puffy-eyed with a frown and his hair in disarray. The mugshot was soon making the rounds online. https://twitter.com/ABC/status/1384867831792209921?s=20 Chauvin is expected to file an appeal in the coming weeks, possibly on the grounds that he could not have possibly received a fair trial with the statements being made in public by politicians such as Maxine Waters of California.
