It’s not the Gun; It’s the Parents and the Government!


Paul C. Roberts

and Olddog

It is NOT the GUN or any other *weapon* that killed all those folks.  It is the FAILURE of those who raised up those who used the gun or the other weapons.   Scripture tells us plain and clearly about how to raise up a child and how to set the example as a parent:

Proverbs 22:6 – Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

Ephesians 6:4 – And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.

Proverbs 29:15 – The rod and reproof give wisdom: but a child left [to himself] bringeth his mother to shame.

Deuteronomy 6:7 – And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.

Proverbs 23:13-14 – Withhold not correction from the child: for [if] thou beatest him with the rod, he shall not die.   (Read More…)

Genesis 18:19 – For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him.

Proverbs 22:15 – Foolishness [is] bound in the heart of a child; [but] the rod of correction shall drive it far from him.

Proverbs 19:18 – Chasten thy son while there is hope, and let not thy soul spare for his crying.

Proverbs 13:24 – He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes.
Olddogs Comments! Please take note that all of the above is now illegal according to our government and that is our real problem!
Ephesians 6:1-2 – Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.

John 3:16 – For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Ephesians 4:29 – Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.

Deuteronomy 28:1-68 – And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe [and] to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth:   (Read More…)

1 Thessalonians 5:18 – In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

Ephesians 5:25 – Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

Philippians 4:9 – Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.

Ephesians 6:1-4 – Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.

The time of two parents in the home, raising up the children has long disappeared in America,.  Government in some form has taken over the upbringing of our children.  Today technology is what most children spend their time and attention with.  Sadly technology is also what too many parents spend their time with (rather than teaching their children what they need to learn).  Those Smart Phones are dumbing down humanity and letting the animal instincts to rule.

There is no longer any discipline in the home – if a parent dares to follow what the bible says in raising children then government (CPS) will step in and take those children and place them in a *government approved* facility – be it a foster home, or a jail setting.  Combine that with the no holds barred use of DRUGS – legal and illegal – the diagnosis that so many children need Ritalin or some other mind altering drug (more $$$ for Big PHARMA and the AMA practitioners) when all they need is a place to work off their growing pains and excess energy.  When I was a kid (A long time ago) parents used a belt or a switch to change the activity of all that pent up energy…  that and actual physical WORK.  Kids learned to use guns for useful purposes and even though guns were easily accessed – without any government permits- it was RARE to even hear of mass shootings or bombings as we do today.  We never heard of any GUN FREE ZONES either.

Don’t fall for all the calls to grab guns – that guns are the problem –  NO NO NO – the problem is the mindset of those who blocked the biblical teaching of how to raise up a child and how to be a good parent.    We have laws for everything but only those that promote the return of slavery are the ones they enforce.  The POWERS OF THE AIR (Satan) want to make SLAVES of all of us so that the Gospel cannot be preached.

Enforcing the laws that would prevent or deter ILLEGAL INVADERS would eliminate the call for more laws – more laws that won’t do anything to stop the invasion of America by ILLEGALS.  When we have so many UNENFORCED LAWS on the books it becomes a JOKE to even say that we need MORE laws on something or other.

We have the LAW OF GRAVITY but people still are falling so knowing that LAW  hasn’t changed anything.  Like if all guns are outlawed – criminals and killers will still find a gun or some other weapon to kill with.  A baseball bat can kill if in the wrong hands.  – So can a rolling pin in the hands of an angry woman. WGEN

It isn’t a matter of Alt Left or Alt Right – – The issue is one of Right or Wrong.

Florida Teacher of the Year’s gun violence post goes viral after school shooting

By Caleb Parke | Fox News

A Teacher of the Year at a Florida middle school posted a Facebook message that has since gone viral saying parents need to “step up” when it comes to their kids’ behavior.

“Okay, I’ll be the bad guy and say what no one else is brave enough to say, but wants to say,” Kelly Guthrie Raley, who was named Eustis Middle School Teacher of the Year 2017-2018 last month, said in a now-viral Facebook post following the mass shooting that killed 17 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

Raley said she’ll “take all the criticism and attacks” for her opinion because, as a teacher with two decades of experience, she has to worry about an active-shooter situation on a daily basis.

The middle school teacher said over her almost two decades as an educator that she’s seen an increase in violence and a lack of compassion among students.

“Until we, as a country, are willing to get serious and talk about mental health issues, lack of available care for the mental health issues, lack of discipline in the home, horrendous lack of parental support when the schools are trying to control horrible behavior at school (oh no! Not MY KID. What did YOU do to cause my kid to react that way?), lack of moral values, and yes, I’ll say it – violent video games that take away all sensitivity to ANY compassion for others’ lives – as well as reality TV that makes it commonplace for people to constantly scream up in each others’ faces and not value any other person but themselves, we will have a gun problem in school,” the sixth-grade language arts teacher wrote.

Raley, who loves hunting and four-wheeling in her spare time, added that she grew up with guns in her home.

“But you know what? My parents NEVER supported any bad behavior from me,” Raley said.

She said when she began teaching 20 years ago, she never had to worry about calling a student’s parents and getting cussed out, told to go to hell, or threatened with a public shaming all because she was calling out their child’s behavior. Something, she said, has got to change.

“Parents, it’s time to step up!” Raley urges. “Be the parent that actually gives a crap! Be the annoying mom that pries and knows what your kid is doing. STOP being their friend. They have enough ‘friends’ at school. Be their parent. Being the ‘cool mom’ means not a damn thing when either your kid is dead or your kid kills other people because they were allowed to have their space and privacy in YOUR HOME.”

She doubles down that she had guns in her home.

“But you know what? I never dreamed of shooting anyone with his guns. I never dreamed of taking one! I was taught respect for human life, compassion, rules, common decency, and most of all, I was taught that until I moved out, my life and bedroom wasn’t mine…it was theirs. And they were going to know what was happening because they loved me and wanted the best for me.”

Raley concludes her post by adding that she never brought up gun control.

“This post wasn’t about gun control,” she said. “This was me, loving the crap out of people and wanting the best for them. This was about my school babies and knowing that God created each one for greatness, and just wanting them to reach their futures.”

Raley said the only thing she holds dearer than teaching students is her faith and family, and that her father, a military hero, and her mother, a retired school teacher, inspired her to be who she is today.

 A Real Solution to School Shootings

Paul Craig Roberts

Gun bans are no more effective than banning drugs.

What explains school shootings and other mass shootings—the ones that are real?

The gun control lobby blames “gun violence.” Gun violence is a non-sensical term. It attributes action and intent to an inanimate physical object as if the gun decides to kill people and moves around on its own pulling its own trigger. Clearly there is no such thing as gun violence. The reliance on such a nonsense term makes a person wonder what the real agenda is of gun control advocates.

People commit violence with guns, just as they do with bombs, Molotov cocktails, knives, baseball bats, tasers, rocks, slingshots, chainsaws, bows and arrows, cars, trucks, fists, and so on. How silly would you sound if you described American Indians’ use of bows and arrows as “bow and arrow violence” or refered to Jack-the-Ripper as “knife violence.”

Nevertheless, the nonsense term has been used by gun control advocates for so many years that people born to its use don’t realize its absurdity. Students at Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida told the media that they “have had enough of gun violence.”

The term is not only nonsensical, it is malicious. It blames behavior on an inanimate object. Consequently, focus is shifted away from the causes of the behavior.

In my day most of us had guns. By the age of 10, 11, and certainly by 12, we had our first .22 rifle or 410 shotgun. None of us ever shot anyone. My uncle brought back from WW II a .45 pistol, a .30 caliber M1 carbine and ammunition galore. As soon as we were able to ride bicycles, my friends and I were at Granny’s playing with the weapons, loading and unloading them. Granny wasn’t the least bit worried. We knew everything about safe handling and never to point a gun at anyone, ourselves included. In the 960s it was common for high school students in rural areas during deer season to take their deer guns to school in their cars and trucks. It was a commonplace sight to see a rifle or shotgun hanging across the back window in a pickup truck cab.

There were no shootings in those days. So what do we conclude? Do we conclude that guns just hadn’t learned to move around on their own and pull their own triggers, or do we conclude that something has happened to people?

There are many explanations offered for the appearance of mass murders. One is behavior control drugs that some kids are on. Another is the extreme violence seen on TV and movies and practiced on video games. Yet another is the destruction of religious influence and the fear of Hell. GMOs and processed food are blamed by some who are concerned with the impact of diet on behavior and mental/emotional stability.

Something has erased in some people moral conscience and concern for others. We need to find out why our society is falling apart like this, not pass the buck to inanimate objects.

Not until the majority of Americans are reeducated on what kind of government we really have and what kind we can have if we apply our God given abilities, will we ever have peace and prosperity. Those whose lives revolve around the constant pursuit of entertainment will never be able to survive the transition. They live in the ME FIRST world and will contaminate all those under their authority. Small wonder their children feel the urge to murder as the solution to their frustrations. The one thing we need to fear is that this social transition is a very well thought out government method of creating tyranny, from which they can get the support of the people to enslave the people.
