Mass murderer Adam Lanza is yet another example of how society is collapsing right in front of our eyes. When I was young, I never imagined that someone would come into my school and try to kill me. But now any school that does not have armed security is being incredibly foolish. The mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut on Friday was the second worst school shooting in modern American history. All of the children that Adam Lanza savagely murdered were either 6 or 7 years old. It was such a horrific crime that even the mainstream media is using words that they would not normally use such as “evil”, “wicked” and “demonic”. There does not seem to be any penalty that would be too harsh for what Adam Lanza did. In this type of case, the death penalty seems way too kind. Unfortunately, Adam Lanza is dead so he will never have his day in court. Instead, the rest of us are left trying to figure out why this happened and what to do about it. Sadly, there will inevitably be more Adam Lanzas. We live in a blood-soaked society that loves and glorifies violence. And I am not just talking about video games and movies. The horrible truth is that more than 2000 children are murdered in the United States every single day in our abortion clinics, and most of our “leaders” actually approve of this practice. When you add in all other forms of abortion such as “morning after pills”, the number is closer to 3000 children a day. Overall, more than 50 million babies have been killed in America since Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973. We have pushed God and morality out of our schools and out of public life, and instead we have taught our young people that the slaughter of millions of babies is no big deal. Is it any wonder that they are so screwed up? We have raised up a generation of young people without teaching them moral values, and now we are experiencing the bitter fruit of our foolishness.
But instead of focusing on what is really causing all of this, the mainstream media seems absolutely obsessed with the idea that more gun control laws would solve our problems.
Adam Lanza broke at least three Connecticut gun control laws. Would adding a bunch more really make a difference?
