What Makes American Children Want to Kill?

For more than 237 years, America has been the most free, peaceful, prosperous, generous and yes, well-armed society on earth. Through most of this period, parents taught their children to pray, to honor thy mother and father, to tell the truth, to work, sacrifice, earn and own, to respect others and yes, to properly handle weapons.

For 223 of those years, kids often carried arms with them to school in order to go hunting with their friends after school and not once did any child take up arms and go on a killing spree against innocent random targets in a school, a mall, a theater or a Chucky Cheese or McDonalds. For most of this period, nearly every boy carried a pocket knife, just like Dad and Grandpa did…

But since 1999, something very evil has been happening with increasing regularity and it’s time for us to take a good hard look at the patterns of these mass killings and the motives and trends behind them.

Between 1963 under Lyndon Johnson and 1998 under Bill Clinton, America experienced ten (10) “mass shootings,” none of them involving children randomly killing children. This calculates to one such incident every 2.8 years in America during this 35 year period, all of them involving adults with a specific axe to grind, a specific target and reason for their actions. Over the last five years, we have seen these events skyrocket to 2.4 mass shootings each year.

But on April 20, 1999 at Columbine High School in Littleton Colorado, a suburb of Denver, something changed when 18-year-old Eric Harris and 17-year-old Dylan Klebold killed 12 fellow students and one teacher before committing suicide in the school library.

This date marks the first time in American history when two teenage children plotted and carried out a mass killing of innocent random targets in a public school. What had changed?

But this was just the beginning… January 2009 to present…and counting

Ten years after Columbine, the situation would become much worse…

The number of mass killings has skyrocketed with twelve (12) mass-shootings between January 2009 and today. Despite increasing gun-control laws popping up across the country, most notably in Colorado, mass shootings are clearly on the rise since 2009 and it begs the question, why?

Compare those numbers again… ten (10) incidents over a 35 year span with no children behind the weapon, compared to twelve (12) in just the last 5 years under the watchful eye of the Obama Administration.

Something very significant is happening since March of 2009…

But there is indeed a set of common traits among the shooters involved in these acts…

The Obama Administration has refused to publish any of this information. Most of this information has been covered up by the main stream media in the push for broad gun-control.

The day before the most recent school shooting in Centennial Colorado, four people were stabbed at a post-game party after the Denver Bronco’s loss at home. A few days before that, another party shooting happened following an upset loss by the nation’s top ranked Crimson Tide.

In Chicago and other major cities, kids are playing a “knock out game” in which they pick a random person walking down the street to sucker-punch and knock out cold.

What is really going on?

It all adds up to a total lack of respect for human life, decency, moral foundations and individual liberty. It shines a spotlight on the breakdown of the nuclear family, the moral degradation of American society, the over-use of psychotropic drugs, and the failed notion that “society” can raise children better than decent honest parents can…

Statistically speaking, life in Chicago is more dangerous than military deployment in Afghanistan and with increasing regularity, the violence involves children. It must be pointed out that Chicago leads the nation in both anti-Second Amendment statutes and gun violence.

The question isn’t how children are killing random innocent victims, but why?

And why have these events skyrocketed under the Obama Administration?

Most of these events end with the shooter turning the gun on themselves. They have lost all “hope” and do not appear to like the “changes” happening in America.

American’s must ask the right questions in order to get to the right answers….

Begin with… Why have there been more of these killing in the last five years than the preceding thirty-five years…? And why are children now behind the gun?

The guns used in these crimes are no more responsible for the crime than the shoes worn to walk to the shooting site. Guns have been part of American culture for more than 237 years, but what is happening today is quite new.

Supporters of Democratic Socialism will deny that they have any responsibility for these events, but there is no running from the fact that these events started on their watch and have skyrocketed under their leadership.

What impact is “hope and change” really having on our children? Why are children killing?
