The Cause of School Shootings

Wonder why there are school shootings today while there don't seem to have been any until some decades ago?

Is it that there are so much more guns? No, there aren't.

Is it that guns are easier to get hold of? No, they aren't.

Is it that these days children don't get spanked and don't get brought up to be little fascists? No, how can bringing up kids to be murderous jingoists counter school violence? How can treating children like the human beings they are, deserving liberty and dignity, cause school violence?

Maybe back in the wing nuts' "good old days" children had the discipline to kill only when sicked on another army by the proper authorities? And these days they individualistically kill whomever they feel like?

No, there's only one reason, and only today's moon bat induced hoplophobia can blind the majority to the obvious.

This gentleman's got the answer pinned down:

"When the federal government started making schools gun-free zones, that's when all of these shootings started," Thweatt said. "Why would you put it out there that a group of people can't defend themselves? That's like saying 'sic 'em' to a dog."

Hear! Hear!
