School Shootings and Mass Murder in America

Why it happens and how to resolve it!

On October 1, 2015, Chris Harper-Mercer, 26, fatally shot an assistant professor and eight students in a classroom at the Umpqua Community College near Roseburg, Oregon. Eight others were injured. Harper-Mercer was known as a recluse who was obsessed with violent gaming and the digital world, even finding supporters on those sites. On an anonymous chat room website called 4chan, there are messages that talk about what he was planning to do.

"Some of you guys are alright. Don't go to school tomorrow if you are in the northwest. So long space robots." The responses he got back to this were terrifying to say the least:

"DO IT" 

"You might want to target a girl's school which is safer because there are no beta males throwing themselves for their rescue."

"I am so excited for this. If this comes true then thank you for my late birthday gift anon."

"I suggest you enter a classroom and tell people that you will take them as hostages. Make everyone get in one corner and then open fire. Make sure that there is no way that someone can disarm you as it possible. I suggest you carry a knife on your belt as last resort if someone is holding your gun,"

"Do not use a shotgun. I would suggest a powerful assault rifle and a pistol or 2x pistols. Possibly the type of pistols who have 15+ ammo"

Here are the responses after the shooting:

"THE MADMAN ACTUALLY DID IT"

"That score, ouch. Not even double digits on current reports."

"GOOD SHOW OP"

"MAY YOU RIP IN PEACE."(A)

WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO OUR COUNTRY??? Earlier generations of children watched lots of gun violence in war movies, westerns, crime dramas and even in cartoons. American children were exposed to a society where guns were a normal part of life. One of the most popular toys for boys were guns. However, even in this “gun culture,” they didn’t shoot up their schools. In fact, up until 30 years ago in many districts, kids would bring their rifles to school during hunting season, leave it in the office and walk out the front doors after school to go hunting. Today this would be unthinkable.

While the world has and always will have its crazies, this increasingly common violence is impossible to explain - or is it? The underlying issue with these shootings is NOT guns. We’ve always had guns. Guns haven’t changed - SOME people have. What’s changed is we have created a class of monsters with no morals who have a profound disrespect for human life. 

Outlawing private gun ownership will NOT solve the problem. We can’t keep illegal drugs out of the country, so why would anyone believe we could keep illegal guns out of the country? Only criminals would have guns and law abiding citizens would be defenseless. It is wrong to destroy the 2nd amendment over the actions of a few.  

So who created these killers in the first place?

THE CAUSES & CURES

The political left is primarily responsible for creating this class of monsters. From the late 1960s on, all of our institutions and history were attacked. In the 1970s, the political left took over the Democratic Party and began pushing their ideals onto our country, causing a huge cultural shift in much of American society. Much of the country went from optimistic and content to pessimistic and depressed. By the 1990s, the political left had largely completed their takeover of most aspects of our society - and this is when mass shootings became common. This is the ‘New America.’  Young Americans now grow up in a country where values and attitudes are largely determined by music, entertainers, video games, news media and especially our public schools and colleges. Dysfunctional families are also a factor.  

Public Schools: 4 points

1) Taking Judeo-Christian values out of our public schools has resulted in a Pagan atmosphere in schools. Since secular based education became widespread, problems never imagined before have befallen us. Christian principles used to be taught in public schools based on the belief that unless morality is based on a higher authority than man, you do not have morality, merely public opinion, which can be manipulated over time. If God does not exist, you decide your own moral code. Today you can’t teach Christian principles but you are REQUIRED to teach ANTI-Christian principles - principles that make life cheap - and expendible. 

"The classroom must and will become the arena of conflict between the old and the new - the rotting corpse of Christianity . . . and the new faith of Humanism." The January-February 1983 issue of The Humanist in an article entitied: "A Religion for a New Age."

2) Evolution is taught as fact. Creation, if mentioned at all, is ridiculed. Evolution blurs the distinction between animals and humans. The end result is young people embrace the concept that we are nothing more than advanced, conniving animals. With abortion, we again cheapen life. Just kill it. It’s a woman’s choice. Forget Christianity. Atheism is the smart choice but Islam is okay too. 

Some people believe that WITH God, all kinds of evil is possible. But there is a huge difference. Everyone claiming to be a Christian who engages in some moral transgression can be rebuked by scripture in the Bible. For instance, many Christians who accepted slavery as normal became abolitionists after convicted of sin by other Christians. There is no appeal to morality for a non-believer or atheists. Students can’t be taught that Christian morality saved the world from paganism, religious cults, slavery and baby sacrifice to pagan gods.

“Men, in a word, must necessarily be controlled by a power within them or by a power without them; either by the Word of God or by the strong arm of man; either by the Bible or by the bayonet.” (B) Robert Winthrop, Speaker of the House of Representatives, 1847-1849

 
 

3) The U.S. is the only country in the world where schools teach a profoundly negative attitude about America and our ancestors. Textbooks are very biased and brainwash our students. Our ancestors, especially white males - are condemned and made the scapegoat for about everything. If America is so evil, what’s wrong with a killing spree? No other country condemns their country’s ancestor’s - even though Japan, Russia, Spain, Mexico, Germany, Brazil and other countries have a terrible past. 

4) Children in most schools around the country are subjected to the “Earth is doomed” rant. Due to climate change, the earth will burn up or freeze up. Terrifying elementary school children by telling them that the Earth will end in 12 years is insane. What kid would want to grow up with that future facing him/her? If we’re all going to die anyway, what’s wrong with a killing spree?

The News Media:

Most of the media in America is owned by the political left and the news reporting is very biased. The news is a never ending tale of depressing news. You would be hard pressed to believe anything is good about America.  Any teenager who watched network news reguarly would probably become depressed, maybe suicidal and believe life is hopeless.

The Entertainment industry:

The Entertainment Industry is corrupt. Many TV shows (decency standards are long gone) are intended to indoctrinate, and reinforce the “New” morality. ‘Shoot em ups’ in the past were clearly defined between the good guys and the bad guys. Violence today is often just mindless murders with no real moral code involved, or against a back drop of hopeless social issues. The recent Batman™ movie is an example of such mindless mayhem.  The Batman™ of old represented a clear moral ethic; today’s Batman™ is devoid of any such ethics. Mindcrafters is evil. Get your kids interested in something else - sports, music, etc.

Video Games:

Some games give points for raping women or killing innocent people. Ban video games from stores that glorify evil and the gang banger mentality and have no clear cut message of right and wrong. Fantasy violence can leave a troubled mind craving for more until some act it out in reality. So we don’t violate any rights, if for some strange reason you want these games that bad, you can order them online provided you’re over 18 years. Otherwise, some adult must order the video games for you - which now makes them culpable.

Music:

A lot of music pushes negative ideas about yourself, others and society in general. Since numerous musicians have committed suicide or died young, they need to re-evaluate their own lives. Gansta rap promotes violence and anti-social behavior. In comparison, music during the depression was always lighthearted and positive even though millions struggled to keep from starving.

Dysfunctional families:

Mom and dad (if one is around) don’t know what to do to help you so they put you on meds which distort reality. There are more broken families today then ever and some parents have poor child rearing skills. 

Conclusions

At one time in the past, American society was admired all around the world. That is why 76 MILLION immigrants came to America since 1790. We need to start teaching our kids what a great country America is with a great history. The bad aspects have been blown out of proportion.  Deaths from drugs, suicides, etc., show a fatalism never present before in our country, despite times in the past that were much worse then today. The optimism and patriotic feelings of previous generations is dying out. Many young people have no idea what it means to be an American or recognize the many positive changes America brought to the world. America has been ahead of the curse in social advancements since the early days of our Republic.

So put a troubled person in this setting: America and white males are evil. The Earth is going to end and you are an advanced animal. Life is cheap and abortion is fine. Morality is what you make of it. Music lyrics are negative and video games glorify wanton violence. You are growing up in a dysfunctional family. Gee, I wonder why some kids would go off on a killing spree.

CHANGES IN THE LAW

•• The fact is that 99% of America’s gun owner are responsible. But it is that small number of crazies we need to stop without violationg our 2nd amendment. Allowing an 18 year old to buy an AR 15 is insane. Since a 21 year old is more mature then an 18 year old, no one under 21 should be allowed to purchase a handgun, an AR15 or other assault rifle. If you join the military under the age of 21, you get an exemption after one year of honorable service.

People who believe these measures are a violation of the 2nd amendment and believe these gun control laws would take us down the ‘slippery slope’ to abolishing the Second Amendment forget that no felon is allowed to own a gun. That is gun control. 

•• Some people blame bullying for school violence. While this is certainly an issue, there was bullying in the past but kids didn’t shoot up their school!

** We need a ‘Rambo’ law. If there is a shooting taking place, the first law enforcement officer to arrive must charge into the building and take out the shooter. No yelling to drop your gun or knife. It’s too late for that. Kill the attacker the second you spot him. 

•• A Law must be passed giving school districts the option of arming a number of school personnel. 

•• No teen can be put on meds for behavior. Must go to a pastor, counselor and get themselves figured out. If a student in school, he/she must report to the school counselor at the start of the day to see how things are going. 

What Laws can NOT fix

Laws can not fix a depraved heart. Only God can do that. If you are a Christian, this is a good prayer to say every day:

Father God, flood the US & everyone in the US with the love of God in Jesus name.Everybody in the US who does not recognize Jesus as Lord & Savior is filled with sorrow for sin & feels God’s love pulling them into the Kingdom of God and accepts Jesus into their heart in Jesus name. Any person planning a massacre or attack on the US is brought before the judgement seat of God, blessed mightily of the Lord, filled with God’s love & convicted of sin until they repent and accept Jesus as Lord and Savior in Jesus name & their plot is foiled and exposed to US authorities in Jesus name. If a potential attacker resists the conviction of the Holy Spirit, judge them with all severity in order to prevent a massacre in Jesus name.


There were many times in the past that were much scarier then today:

• The Cuban missile crisis (1963).

• The 1930s - war mongers running Germany and Japan, the depression, the dust bowl.

• The Cold War - where people feared being incinerated due to a nuclear war between the U.S. and the old Soviet Union, 

• World War 2 - where 300,000 died 

• Vietnam - where 50,000 died.
