The Florida shooting has a whirlwind of criticism toward President Trump. If my grandchild were a victim, I would be equally distraught.
This problem came, long before Trump. We have created a country of no moral core. There were 461 killings a year in Chicago alone during every year of Obama’s presidency. He didn’t change it. Gun control didn’t change it. Chicago has gun control.
Evil is the cause. How do we eliminate evil? We have to kill it. We can’t lock it up. It grows in captivity. It seeps out of the cracks in the walls.
Problem is, we have to become just as callous to defeat it. We have to hang it by the neck. However, this will only reduce it, and not eliminate it. Do we want less? Then this is what we have to do. Start with eliminating all who use a gun in a crime. That would be the easiest. More cut and dried.
