Must Have Been the Guns By: Paul Harvey
For the life of me, I cant understand what could have gone wrong in Santee, California. If only the parents had kept their children away from guns, we wouldn't have had such a tragedy.
It couldn't have been because half of our children are raised in broken homes. It couldn't have been because our children get to spend an average of 30 seconds in meaningful conversation with their parents each day. After all, we give our children quality time.
It couldn't be because we treat our children as pets and our pets as children.
It couldn't be because we place our children in day care centers where they learn their socialization skills among their peers under the law of the jungle while employees who have no vested interest in the children look on and make sure no blood is spilled.
It couldn't be because we allow our children to watch, on average, seven hours of television a day filled with the glorification of sex and violence that isn't fit for adult consumption.
It couldn't have been because we allow our children to enter into virtual worlds in which, to win the game, one must kill as many opponents as possible in the most sadistic way possible.
It couldn't be because we have sterilized and contracepted our families down to sizes so small that the children we do have are so spoiled with material things that they come to equate the receiving of the material with love.
It couldn't have been because our children, who have historically been seen as a blessing from God, are now viewed as either a mistake created when contraception fails or inconveniences that parents try to raise in their spare time.
It couldn't have been because we give two-year prison sentences to teen-agers who kill their newborns.
It couldn't have been because we teach our children that there is no God, there are no laws of morality that transcend us, that everything is relative and actions don't have consequences.
Take the ex-president, even he gets away with it.
Nah, it must have been the guns
