Real men were brought up to respect firearms and instructed in their use, they did not resort to them to settle conflicts because that is why God gave us fists to settle disputes, and nobody up to my generation carried a grudge that led to grabbing a gun out of your parents gun case and go shoot somebody. Such behavior was rightly attributed to people of bad and evil character and never entered the consciousness of our youth. Ever since the womens movement, the hippie sub-culture, the militant radicals like the Weather Underground and Black Panthers, PP and all the crap advanced under breakneck speed by the pc/diversity/multi-culti crowd, boys have been emasculated and taught that fists are bad, that competition is bad, that everything that makes a boy a boy and a man a man is unseemly and a throwback to our Neolithic ancestors. Boys are brought to counciling and told they are exhibiting anti-social behavior if they stand up for themselves, they are taught that passiveness is noble and that violence is never the answer, that friendship with other males is no different than harboring sexual desires for same sex experiementation...is it any wonder that we've created ticking time bombs who knowing no other way to express themselves or their disappointments and frustrations sometimes lash out in horrific fashion? I am by no means attributing all social ills of society and the acts of all mass muderers on the insanity of the liberal social agenda, but it cannot be said it has helped in any way to prevent it. Most mass muderers and other violent criminals can be seen to have had some break point in their lives where a disconnect ocurred between the rational and irrational, dysfunctional households, abuse, neglect and mentors sending mixed messages. Society created these people, yet inanimate objects like guns are to blame, the mass murderer is a victim too. The latter is true, but not at the end point, they were victimized by parents, teachers and counselors who advocated things not designed to benefit the individual but to benefit the advancement of liberal ideology and goals long before the horrific act took place. I see no difference between F&F on the one hand and mass murderers that slid through the failed social experiments allowed to run amok in homes, schools and places of work on the other. It is all part of the same disease and manipulated by the same agitators.
