  • All this might be helpful, but I have reservations about the culturally conservative tone. Why the advocacy for “faith-based” involvement? Maybe some people, I’d think a lot of libertarians, see flaws in the worldviews he alludes to.
    I thought I joined a libertarian website. I don’t like muddling conservative and libertarian worldviews. The differences are too important.

  • Very misleading. Prevent the “next” mass shooting sounds like an instant cure, not fixing the basics of society. Why do these “boys” need faith based father figures to hand them over to pedophile priests and scout leaders? It isn’t atheists performing these atrocities. This guy gives me the heebie jeebies. I wonder how many others with law enforcement or social work backgrounds feel the same way. I’m disappointed, Matt.

  • And don’t let them anywhere near the military. Why are we surprised that mass shootings happen in a country where people stand up and cheer for the government’s hired killers when they walk through the airport? Where they hoot and holler like drunken frat boys when its death machines fly over an NFL game or a NASCAR race?

  • Good analysis.

    Violence begets violence. One act of violence produces more of the same. Unfortunately, the spawn of violence do not follow predictable paths. They may mutate, divide, increase in size and emerge without warning near or far. The only certainty is that they will produce more violence.

    On March 11, United States Army Sergeant Robert Bales went on a violent house-to-house rampage in a village near his base, killing 17 civilians, including 9 children. Bales is in U.S. custody now and could face the death penalty.

    Nine months later:

    On December 14, 2012 in Newtown, Connecticut, at the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, 20-year-old Adam Lanza, killed twenty-six people and himself. He first killed his mother at their shared home before taking her guns and driving to the school. Lanza brought four guns with him. He killed twenty first-grade children aged six and seven during the attack at school, along with six adults, including four teachers, the principal, and the school psychologist. Two other persons were injured. Lanza then killed himself as police arrived at the school.

    Violence begets violence.
