While Obama said the nation's response to mass shootings has become routine, laws supporting gun control to deterring the violence is not the entire answer.
Nor is the confiscation of guns which have been obtained legally.
Following this week's mass murder at an Oregon community college, Obama went on to say:
"We've become numb to this."
The fact of the matter is that the answer to all this unwarranted violence is not necessarily tighter gun control laws. In fact we need to look at the very route of the ills of our society.
While the President is correct in stating that gun laws need to change, he and others keep making the same mistake.
The answer to this high volume of crime is very complicated, but a good start would be to start putting murders in prison for life. Life should mean life. Not 5 years; not 25 years, but life. If society cannot afford it, than hang the perpetrators. It may not act as a deterrent, but it will be one less murder on the loose.
In addition the government needs to start supporting the traditional family unit. A marriage is a union between a man and a woman. Until our perspective governments stop turning away from a Godless life style, we as a society shall continue to reap the rewards of the evil corruption our society is supporting.
Marriages should not be entered into lightly, but need to be carefully thought out. Once the commitment is made by the couple, then as a couple they need to make every effort to stick to that commitment, especially if there are children involved. The biggest ill of our society is due to the destruction of the family unit and inconsistent discipline of children.
Schools need to teach moral rules to live by and reinforce the positive behavior when children are demonstrating them.
High unemployment gives too many people too much time on their hands. Idle hands lead to disaster. If a person is out of work then they should be looking at volunteering a couple days a week somewhere. Not because they have to, but because they want to. It has proven an excellent way to network and find new paid work. At the very least they are working for their unemployment cheque.
Our social workers actually punish constructive efforts to find employment through taking courses or volunteer work. I ask you, if all you are doing is spending all your time trying to find work instead of taking a proactive stance through networking as well then how are you any further ahead? Does it not make more sense for the welfare state, to assist the unemployed with opportunities to network through volunteer programs?
The social workers attitude seems to be we shall just access more money through different programs without the proper encouragement to work. Trust me I know of what I speak. This type of unemployment assistance is useless and only encourages a learned dependency. Heaven help the person with a work ethic.
Bullying in the schools need to stop. Perhaps programs need to be set up to teach children how to deal with bullying constructively. The bullied need emotional support from their friends; teachers & parents and a very clear message needs to be sent to the bullies that the behavior is not tolerated.
Disarming the public is not the answer. This was tried in Australia with serious negative consequences. You can disarm the law abiding citizen, but you shall never disarm the criminal. This just simply leaves the public vulnerable and the crime rate has become so high in some areas that the police cannot deal with it quickly. While it may not be politically correct to say this: If the criminal knows that Joe blow average citizen may have access to weapons in their home they may think twice before attacking them or their family.
The media has to find a way to stop giving these gunmen a platform. The less press the perpetrator receives the safer the public. Other would-be assassins may discover they are no longer getting an audience for what they have done so the idea of ending their life in a blaze of glory is taken from them.
The High River gun grab violated every Canadian's civil liberties, and must never be repeated.
