Why are we killing each other?

February 22, 2018

Letter to the Editor_BannerDear Editor:
I join the millions of people who are praying for the families of the Florida School shooting.  I cannot imagine the trauma in all the families caused by this senseless act.

Neil Cavuto, a reporter from Fox News covering the story posed the question:  “What is going on in our country, why are we killing each other?”

Some want to blame the gun again, and yes, the shooter should not have been able to buy a gun in his mental state.  His posting: “I want to be a professional school shooter” on social media pretty much concludes that he had planned this shooting way ahead of time.  Whether he buys a gun or steals one, he was going to do it one way or another.

In my opinion, and I don›t pretend to be an expert in the field of psychology, but I’m pretty much convinced of my reasoning for “what’s going on”:

“What’s going on” began in 1973 when abortion became legal that gave America a legal right to kill a baby in the womb all the way up to and including the ninth month. Since then, nearly 60 million lives have been taken out, one by one.  A new mentality began, and subsequent generations grew up with the idea that “life is cheap and disposable.”

 With that thought in mind, coupled with the fact that many of our kids today are addicted to violent video games that glorify and makes a sport of killing people in life like HD.

Life has become desensitized.   

 Lastly, and most important, is the absence of God in American families today.

If there is no faith in God, abortion is socially acceptable, and the game of killing becomes entertainment, then the answer to Neil’s question becomes obvious: “Whats going on, why are we killing each other?

    I think many families no longer attend church . But also for that person that wants to kill a large number of people the existence of the Items that enable to kill many
    The assault style guns and large clips of ammo
    And bump stocks Make sure that many will die.
    They are the great enabler of a sick mind , to kill maximum

    These types are not needed they are not a hunting
    Gun , they have become the weapons of a killer
