Mass murderer Adam Lanza is yet another example of how society is collapsing right in front of our eyes. When I was young, I never imagined that someone would come into my school and try to kill me. But now any school that does not have armed security is being incredibly foolish. The mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut on Friday was the second worst school shooting in modern American history. All of the children that Adam Lanza savagely murdered were either 6 or 7 years old. It was such a horrific crime that even the mainstream media is using words that they would not normally use such as “evil”, “wicked” and “demonic”. There does not seem to be any penalty that would be too harsh for what Adam Lanza did. In this type of case, the death penalty seems way too kind. Unfortunately, Adam Lanza is dead so he will never have his day in court. Instead, the rest of us are left trying to figure out why this happened and what to do about it. Sadly, there will inevitably be more Adam Lanzas. We live in a blood-soaked society that loves and glorifies violence. And I am not just talking about video games and movies. The horrible truth is that more than 2000 children are murdered in the United States every single day in our abortion clinics, and most of our “leaders” actually approve of this practice. When you add in all other forms of abortion such as “morning after pills”, the number is closer to 3000 children a day. Overall, more than 50 million babies have been killed in America since Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973. We have pushed God and morality out of our schools and out of public life, and instead we have taught our young people that the slaughter of millions of babies is no big deal. Is it any wonder that they are so screwed up? We have raised up a generation of young people without teaching them moral values, and now we are experiencing the bitter fruit of our foolishness.
But instead of focusing on what is really causing all of this, the mainstream media seems absolutely obsessed with the idea that more gun control laws would solve our problems.
Adam Lanza broke at least three Connecticut gun control laws. Would adding a bunch more really make a difference?
Just take a look at the city of Chicago.
Chicago has some of the strictest gun laws in the entire nation. The intent was to greatly reduce gun crime in the city. But instead, Chicago is now being called “the deadliest global city“, and the murder rate is running about 25 percent higher than last year.
Well, what about in other areas of the world?
The UK has some of the strictest gun laws on the planet. So how has that worked out? Well, gun crime in England and Wales rose by 89 percent over the course of a decade…
The latest Government figures show that the total number of firearm offences in England and Wales has increased from 5,209 in 1998/99 to 9,865 last year – a rise of 89 per cent.
Banning guns is not going to solve anything. The criminals are always going to be able to get guns. But banning guns will take them away from hard working American citizens that just want to have a chance to defend themselves as our society crumbles all around us.
Are you ready for some more statistics? The following is from an article by my friend J. Vanne in which he detailed how guns have helped to reduce crime in many areas of the United States…
As a matter of fact, Gun Owners of America, cites statistics indicating guns are used 2.5 million times a year in self-defense, or around 80 times a day (other statistics estimate this number could range as low as 1.5 million, but either number is a lot!). This includes 200,000 women a year using guns to defend themselves against sexual abuse. As a matter of fact, as of 2008, armed citizens killed more violent bad guys than the police (1,527 vs. 606).
It appears George Washington had it right, when he said “The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere restrains evil interference – they deserve a place of honor with all that is good.”
What about concealed carry?
Statistics from the recent past show states that passed concealed carry reduced their murder rate by 8.5%, rapes by 5% and robbery by 3%. Florida, which passed concealed carry in 1987, saw its higher than average homicide rate drop 52% during the following 15 years after passage, to below the national average.
But if you listen to the mainstream media, the only solution to this crisis is more gun control laws.
As if psychos that somehow are not able to obtain a gun cannot find other ways to attack people. For example, just the other day a very sick Chinese man with a knife attacked 22 children at a school in China.
So should we ban all knives too?
One thing that the mainstream media is not talking about is the role that pharmaceutical drugs have played in almost every single mass murder in the United States in recent years. The following is from a recent Natural News article…
In mass shootings involving guns and mind-altering medications, politicians immediately seek to blame guns but never the medication. Nearly every mass shooting that has taken place in America over the last two decades has a link to psychiatric medication, and it appears today’s tragic event is headed in the same direction.
According to ABC News, Adam Lanza, the alleged shooter, has been labeled as having “mental illness” and a “personality disorder.” These are precisely the words typically heard in a person who is being “treated” with mind-altering psychiatric drugs.
One of the most common side effects of psychiatric drugs is violent outbursts and thoughts of suicide.
And guess what?
According to the Washington Post, one neighbor is telling the press that Adam Lanza was “on medication”.
Is anyone surprised?
But of course the mainstream media will never call for a ban on mind-altering pharmaceutical drugs. The companies that produce those drugs spend billions of dollars to advertise on their networks.
And as horrific as this crisis was, let us not be blind to what is happening all around us every day.
Adam Lanza murdered 20 children in cold blood and that was a crime for which there are not words strong enough to denounce it.
However, more than 100 times as many children are killed in the abortion clinics of America every single day, and most of our politicians stand up and publicly defend the slaughter of those innocents.
We have covered America with the blood of our own children, and yet hardly anyone speaks up about this anymore.
In a previous article about abortion, I listed 19 facts about the mass murder that is happening in abortion clinics all across the United States…
#1 There have been more than 53 million abortions performed in the United States since Roe v. Wade was decided back in 1973.
#2 When you total up all forms of abortion, including those caused by the abortion drug RU 486, the grand total comes to more than a million abortions performed in the United States every single year.
#3 The number of American babies killed by abortion each year is roughly equal to the number of U.S. military deaths that have occurred in all of the wars that the United States has ever been involved in combined.
#4 Approximately 3,000 Americans lost their lives as a result of the destruction of the World Trade Center towerson 9/11. Every single day, more than 3,000 American babies are killed by abortion.
#5 It has been reported that a staggering 41 percent of all New York City pregnancies end in abortion.
#6 According to Pastor Clenard Childress, approximately 52 percent of all African-American pregnancies now end in abortion.
#7 One very shocking study found that 86 percent of all abortions are done for the sake of convenience.
#8 According to the Guttmacher Institute, the average cost of a first trimester abortion at the ten week mark is $451.
#9 The average cost of a vaginal birth with no complications in the United States is now over $9,000.
#10 A Department of Homeland Security report that was released in January 2012 says that if you are “anti-abortion”, you are a potential terrorist. Unfortunately, there have also been other government reports that have also identified “anti-abortion” protesters as potential threats.
#11 A while back one Philadelphia abortionist was charged with killing seven babies that were born alive, but witnesses claim that he actually slaughtered hundreds “of living, breathing newborn children by severing their spinal cords or slitting their necks.”
#12 Some abortion clinics have been caught selling aborted baby parts to medical researchers.
#13 Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger once said the following….
“The most merciful thing that a family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.”
#14 In a 1922 book entitled “Woman, Morality, and Birth Control”, Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger wrote the following….
“Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race.”
#15 Planned Parenthood performs more than 300,000 abortions every single year.
#16 Planned Parenthood specifically targets the poor. A staggering 72 percent of Planned Parenthood’s “customers” have incomes that are either equal to or beneath 150 percent of the federal poverty level.
#17 There are 30 Planned Parenthood executives that make more than $200,000 a year. A few of them make more than $300,000 a year.
#18 Planned Parenthood received more than 487 million dollars from the federal government during 2010.
#19 The following is one description of the five steps of a partial birth abortion….
1) Guided by ultrasound, the abortionist grabs the baby’s legs with forceps.
2) The baby’s leg is pulled out into the birth canal.
3) The abortionist delivers the baby’s entire body, except for the head.
4) The abortionist jams scissors into the baby’s skull. The scissors are then opened to enlarge the skull.
5) The scissors are removed and a suction catheter is inserted. The child’s brains are sucked out, causing the skull to collapse. The dead baby is then removed.
So yes, we should deeply mourn for the 20 dear children that were ruthlessly gunned down in Connecticut.
But let us also deeply mourn for the more than 50,000,000 children that have been purposely slaughtered in this country since 1973.
There is no way that America will survive if we continue to murder our own children like this.
