Guns don´t kill people but
our sons do; let´s focus on them

Clarion-Ledger [Jackson, MS], by Warren Farrell

Original Article

Posted By:BonnieBlue, 1/8/2013 4:30:05 PM

After Newtown, Conn., parents cried out, “What’s making our children kill?” But it is not our children who are killing. It is our sons. All but one of the 62 mass killings in the past 30 years was committed by boys or men. We respond by blaming guns, our inattentiveness to mental health, violence in the media or video games, or family values. All are players, but our daughters find the same guns in the same homes, are about as likely to be mentally ill, have the same family values and are exposed to the same violence in the media. Our daughters, however, do not kill. Why the difference?

It´s not the gun. It´s who´s pulling the trigger.

How many of these ´kids´ never met their father, or if they did they were one of the kids spread among 11 ´baby mamas´.

Mr. Farrell may be correct with his assertion, but is wrong if he thinks this White House would really want to solve a problem. Democrats don´t want to solve problems. This wouldn´t give them anything to run on.

Why does the Army and Marine Corps recruit young men ?

Because they make good killers.

Girls take too long to get ready.

#2 has a point about the 11 mamas, and yet it seems to be all white boys who commit the mass murders, not black or hispanic. That should also be looked into. The black boys without fathers seem to have perhaps more of a propensity for one on one violence but not mass shootings.

#6, beltway sniper and the other sniper mentioned in an article the other day because it was an anniversary of his killing spree. Black shooters, random white victims. Take out the inner city black gun criminals and the US moves up quite a bit in the violence rankings. The other statistical factor is the number of white vs black in the population. Don´t expect a word on this problem in all the new proposals to ban and confiscate firearms, starting tomorrow in NY state.

How many were raised in families where they were not allowed to play with toy guns, as boys do, but were given baby dolls and dresses instead?

It´s our sick society that´s spawning the shootings.

Why did we not have this cultural violence in the fifties & sixties?
Looks at what´s changed.
There´s the answer.

Might I suggest the intentional emasculation of white males in this country and the feminist drive to disenfranchise men from their rightful place as leaders of house and home in favor of female dominated households (even in stable 2 parent homes) might, just might be contributing to this trend?

Weak, beta, blue pill dad dominated by overbearing asexual Oprah worshiping mom is the new trend in all parts of white society, even the church going part. Look into red pill/blue pill reality in the current manosphere blogroll. Strong dominant fathers and husbands are good for kids and wives. It is also Biblical for those who ascribe to Christianity, despite what the churches may teach mostly by example.

The way things are isn´t the way they should be if we really do love our kids as much as we say we do.

The dumbocrap solution to this might just be castration at birth for all those male children not born to the "approved for reproduction" elite. Guess who they´ll be.

There have always been serial killers and Americans have always had guns but mass shootings are relatively recent. In almost every case, if not EVERY case, the shooter has been in mental care treatment and given drugs that clearly state they may cause suicidal thoughts and other violence. It´s the drugs, not the guns. Guns have always been available. Boys vs girls -- I don´t know--but a lot has to do with our culture making fathers (males) disposable. What else do they have to do? Golf, anyone!

Information released yesterday in courtroom testimony was that police removed several bottles of prescription pills belonging to the shooter at the Aurora, Colorado theater.

Don´t look for LeftMedia to mention it, though.

#10, LOL!

Actually, serial killers were really not heard of much until the late 19th Century. I think there are a LOT of different factors behind this, but one thing that folks forget about is the rat experiment. We are getting more crowded in smaller spaces like the rats who started killing and eating each other. This is only one small contributing factor, but definitely a contributor. Lack of God and a moral compass; lack of stable 2 parent nuclear families; mass media glorifying the perverse, violent and evil; etc. etc. etc.

BTW, our daughters are killing too. Just not at as high a rate but they are a growing number.

Generations of little boys are now medicated with powerful drugs (e.g. Ritalin) for the crime of being a little boy... many have no father-figure to guide them and their mother-figures are incapable of dealing with them... drug ´em and hang the dangers and consequences. Just sayin´.

The flawed assumption in all the "we have to do..." responses is that society can actually find some something that will stop crazies from being crazies.

Well one possible explanation could be the fact that the wussies who populate our school system can´t handle the totally normal behaviour of little boys. So what do they do? They drug them into little robots. When the press decides to get honest about their reporting, I think that the teachers unions in this country will have a lot to answer for in regards to the monsters they have created.

Aurora, Columbine, Newtown etc - All of these killers were on anti-depressant medication. Studies indicate that medications - particularly anti-depressants work very differently on males versus females. I´d start there - the gun issue is a red herring rolled into an agenda to grab absolute power - nothing else.

"Our daughters, however, do not kill" using guns. They prefer abortion instead: Over 330 thousand last year, at Planned Parenthood alone. How many millions since Roe and Wade? .

´Greatest generation´ veterans sweep past
barricades at memorial in their honor
Fox News, by Edmund DeMarche    Original Article
Posted By: BonnieBlue- 10/1/2013 2:48:41 PM     Post Reply
What was meant to be a final gathering of heroes Tuesday instead became a final victory for dozens of World War II combat vets who refused to let the government´s budget battle block a visit to their memorial in the nation´s capital. With bagpipers playing "Amazing Grace," nearly 200 veterans from Mississippi and Iowa swept past barricades and security guards at the World War II Memorial in Washington in order to keep a commitment to visit the site, which was closed today due to the partial government shutdown. The veterans, in their 80s and 90s, were accompanied by

Capt. Hugh Walker’s fighter pilot call sign is “Hoot” — which once stood for Hick Opposes Orthodontic Treatment … Now he is known as something else: The No. 1 fighter pilot in the Air Force. Walker, 31, who has flown an F-16 jet on some 160 combat missions over Iraq, Libya and Afghanistan, recently received the Robbie Risner Award, which is given to the Air Force officer who makes the biggest combat impact in the first year after graduation from the Weapons Instructor Course at Nellis Air Force Base, located in North Las Vegas.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you
