Another horrifying killing spree at a school. This time little children are the victims, probably the most hideous crime imaginable. Defenseless, young kids and their teachers. Disgusting, tragic and absolute madness. And as usual, the media frenzy is just as sickening. News stations offering round the clock coverage of the tragedy as it unfolded, all in the name of ratings. When are we going to wake up and realize that the non stop, full-blown media assault is glorifying this type of action for the mentally disturbed? As long as we keep giving these sickos their 5 minutes of fame, they’re going to keep doing this, over and over.
There’s a lot of stuff coming out of this in the media that’s making me angry. For one, the ant-gun lobbyists are saying tighter gun laws would stop this from happening. No it won’t! Are you all insane? One only has to look at Canada and our failed gun registry to see that clamping down on guns is completely useless. When our registry was in effect, law-abiding citizens registered their weapons, and the criminals and sickos didn’t. It cost us billions of dollars and didn’t solve a damn thing. If a deranged person really wants to kill someone, he’ll use a gun whether it’s registered or not. And if he can’t get his hands on one, he’ll build a pipe bomb, use a machete, poison or whatever means necessary to get the job done. Tougher gun laws only tie the hands of the innocent. Last time I checked, a gun never killed anybody. It was the idiot pulling the trigger.
I’ve also heard people saying that the removal of Christianity from schools in the US could be the reason this is happening. I can’t even fathom someone coming up with something so stupid. In the 21st century, where most people are aware and respect the different religions and cultures of their neighbors, making statements like that makes me think we’re headed back to the stone age on a speed boat. The only reason this is happening is because the media is making it attractive to those who are in need of emotional and mental help.
As a matter of fact, the only positive thing I’ve heard so far is some experts are recommending if you see someone who might be planning something like this, then report them to the authorities as quickly as possible. If they’re about to commit an unspeakable crime, they’ll be stopped. We have to be more vigilant, especially when it comes to children. And if we could only get the media to stop swirling around these situations like vultures at a carcass, maybe then it would stop. But as long as ratings are involved, I guess we’ll never know.
