Letter To The Editor: Stop Blaming Inanimate Object

By ROBERT VISEL

Once again people are blaming an inanimate object for the violence we’re seeing in our schools and our country.

Do you blame the car for killing someone in a DWI? Do you blame the fork and the spoon for obesity? When someone uses a truck full of fertilizer to blow up a government building do we blame the fertilizer? Do you blame the knife when it’s used to stab someone to death? Was a gun responsible for killing six million Jews? Gun control made the Holocaust possible.

The gun, knife, car, or sack of fertilizer are all inanimate objects incapable of doing anything on their own. Let’s stop blaming the tool and start blaming the individual.

What’s even worse is you blame over five million law-abiding citizens for the actions of a handful of sick and demented individuals. America’s gun owners aren’t the problem. They are allies in the fight to stop criminals who use guns.

The gun is not the problem – society is. Bad parenting and the coddling of our youth where children are no longer taught how to cope with the hardships of real life. We give them “Safe Spaces” and stuffed animals when they feel “threatened”.

I remember, before this generation started shooting up the schools, we still had guns. We had them in our vehicles parked at the school but there were never any mass shootings. We were taught about the sanctity of life and to respect our elders and authoritative figures.

Thank you for confirming again that it’s not the gun, it’s the person, and in particular the millennial culture. We need to put the blame where it belongs and that’s on the little snowflakes from this generation. When their little feelings get hurt they grab daddy’s gun and start killing innocent people.

Lack of morals, lack of respect for other people, failure to establish and maintain proper care for the mentally unstable and Judges who have no honor or integrity in measuring justice all have contributed to today’s violence.

We have had guns since this country was founded, yet school shootings are relatively a new phenomenon, an outcome of the leftist culture where killing babies in the womb is legal. The left expelled prayer in schools throwing God out, even though this Republic was founded as a Christian nation, and they’re doing away with the Pledge of Allegiance.  

You created this problem. You’re the ones that created these spoiled and entitled brats. They disrespect our flag, they disrespect our National Anthem, and they disrespect our soldiers who sacrificed their lives in order to keep this country free.

Banning guns only makes good people helpless, it won’t make bad people harmless. It’s time for all of you to wake up and quit blaming the tool and go after the real cause.
