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.

Democrat Senator Refuses to Condemn Antifa, Then Abruptly Storms Out of Hearing (Watch)

Ooooo, she got ’em good!!

There are a number of rotten apples in both the lower and upper chamber. The vast majority of them will vote for Joe Biden in November. Hawaii’s Mazie Hirono is one of the worst. When asked by Senator Ted Cruz to denounce the wildly anti-American group, “Antifa,” Mazie refused. She even took things a step further and walked out of the hearing. Yes, she literally took her ball and walked away so nobody else could play. And that’s what libs do best. From Fox News: Tensions flared at a Senate hearing on Antifa when a top Democrat walked out of the room declaring she couldn’t sit through Sen. Ted Cruz’s rhetorical speeches any longer. The dustup occurred when Cruz, R-Texas, blasted Democrats for not condemning Antifa more directly for the violence and destruction that has taken hold in certain U.S. cities in the wake of George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis.

And she likely won’t face any push back, whatsoever. VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LHG_u-p15CQ&feature=emb_title Even when Congressional liberals let it slip that impeaching President Trump is all about preventing him from winning re-election, the media doesn’t care. Is that an issue? Sure. But at the end of the day, the public isn’t stupid. They can see that Dems have cheapened the impeachment process for political gain – and it should come back to bite them sooner rather than later. Check out Hawaii Senator Mazie Hirono (D). She made it clear that there is “tremendous fear” Trump will win in November if he’s not kicked out of office before then.

If NYC Doesn’t Get Federal Bailout, De Blasio Set to Lay Off Over 20,000 City Employees

The Democrat way: cause massive problems (or refuse to fix them), then demand more and more money to cover the problem like a band-aid – knowing full well how easily it can peel off. New Yorkers, what were you thinking when you put this guy in office? Want a do-over or what?

Barbot, in the resignation letter she submitted Tuesday morning, said the Health Department’s expertise was not sufficiently tapped. “I leave my post today with deep disappointment that during the most critical public health crisis in our lifetime, that the Health Department’s incomparable disease control expertise was not used to the degree it could have been.” Do the right thing and resign, Bill. Enough is enough.
