Dealing with crimes by ending all gun ownership is the equivalent of bringing back prohibition laws and pulling all drivers licenses because one drunk driver ran somebody over.
But why stop with guns? The next time someone gets stabbed with a knife or a fork, should we not pass legislation to force all Americans to eat with chopsticks?
This is when force becomes farce.
Sound like a lot of contradictions?
Nothing is more contradictory than Joe Biden leaving billions of dollars worth of guns and powerful weapons in Afghanistan, and then scrambling to find a way to take privately owned guns from American citizens who have lawfully purchased them under the second amendment to our own constitution.
Going on to the idea of smash and grabbers, cop killers, murderers, drug cartels and just about all criminals, voluntarily lining up at the local mental health clinic for six months to a year of treatment. On what planet is that going to happen? To most criminals that idea is considered – insane.
Finally, we should run all criminals through Harvard, Yale or Princeton or any accredited university. Even, if they don’t quit crime, at least their crimes would rise to a far more sophisticated level.
Oh wait, that is already happening on many levels of this society, it is called – white-collar crime.
Most Americans know the difference between a hammer wielding end-run around a jewelry counter at New York’s Metropolitan Pavilion, and an Enron scam that cost investors 74 billion dollars down on Wall Street. Both require a crook of some kind.
Think of it. The only difference between busily filling bags with high end stolen jewelry and staying at home while siphoning off a multi-billion-dollar fortune from preferred clients, is a good business school.
Education? Yeah, that’s the key.
Perhaps we should look a little closer at what we pour into the heads of our children long before they wonder what it is like to shoot a gun.
We have convinced them that they all sprung from apes, and they are born victims if they are black, and racists if they are white – good start!
Then we provide proof that America is a very lousy country, that they just happened to be stuck in, and to top it all off, we assure them that they may not even be the gender that nature gave them at birth.
Finally, we scare the bananas out of them with the idea that the climate is changing so fast that they have only a dozen or so years to live.
Top it all off with the cool detached frosting of atheism and agnosticism, all while laughing at Jesus and making fun of the Bible. Now they can add (DDDD) demonically driven delusions disorder to their oft diagnosed (ADHD) attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
Beside becoming liberal, godless, illegal gun wielding domestic terrorists, hate mongers and racists, they now need mental health treatments, masks, shots, censoring and social media cancels to keep them from getting worse.
Our children have become a conglomerated caricature of mental cases, social monsters, and gender dysphoric miscreants.
Our answer for this is, take away guns, take the jab, then go home and shut up.
The Other Answer – The Real Answer
God fearing bible believing people are told that after they confess belief in Christ, he makes a transaction with them. The deal starts now, not at, or after death.
He forgives all sins then gives them his Holy Spirit to lead them into all truth and begin a change of heart in them, that makes them a new creature. He also promises that he will not stop working with them, but he will keep up the work until it is finished.
“Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will show you things to come.” (Jn 16:13)
“Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” (2Cor 5:17)
“Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.” (Php 1:6)
It’s the best deal in town, but Christ warned that there would only be a few takers out of the whole crowd.
“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.” (Mt 7:13-14)
If Believers are Taught of God – Who Teaches the Unbelievers?
Every time we hear someone describe hell as a place where friends will meet and Satan oversees all the fun, you can rest assured they have never read a single passage of the bible.
Satan will eventually be the chief victim of hell not its ruler. But he rules the “cosmos” now. In the simplest terms, Satan rules the world’s system of evil, and everyone in it. All people who have reached the age of accountability and have decided to exist apart from God receive their general impressions about life from him.
Believers were once under the dreaded sway of the god of this world (Satan) but now no longer follow his calls.
But for the rest, the crowds, the masses that is not the case. They still march full step to his beck and call. Even though they would die before admitting that – they nevertheless get most of their inspiration from him.
The Apostle Paul affirms this to the believers, so they won’t slip backwards into old patterns.
“And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins: Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.” (Eph 2:1-3)
This is where democrats, college professors, first grade schoolteachers and everyone else get their view of life on the planet earth – and they neither see it nor believe it!
Throwing money, psychologists, new harsher laws, and censorship at the problem, is about as high as their thinking can ever take them.
To see further ahead or higher, they need to look behind them and humble themselves to the revealed word of God.
It has always had the answer.
They must be renewed, re-started, and given a new path. Jesus said it this way…
“Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” (Jn 3:3)
