Gun Control won’t fix Sandy Hook Violence

On December 14, 2012 the world watched in horror as pure evil visited Sandy Hook Elementary.  We prayed.  We cried.  We held our own children and prayed.  We prayed even harder for the parents of innocent children who were sent to Heaven early.
As promised, I refused to comment on this issue until we all had time to grieve and to support those precious families with our prayers.  For the last few days I’ve been working on a Decoder Map that covers every problem or cause  incapsulated in the evil actions of December 14th.  No one law, statement, rule or governmental control can fix this problem.
Yesterday Ron gave me a wonderful example of why Gun Control won’t fix the violence that invaded Sandy Hook.  Apparently some blogger laid his AR-15 rifle by the door to his office.  He left it there for several days.  He reported that not once did his loaded gun jump into his hands.  Not once did the gun move and point at someone walking by.  Not once did the gun stand on end and shoot into the ceiling.  Not once did someone passing by feel compelled to pick up the gun and shoot.  The gun lay still and quiet and didn’t move at all.
The problem is not guns.  The problem is the heart of Adam Lanza and other shooters.  The problem stems from the social issues we have in this country.  Not just one problem – but multiple problems.  Games are horrible for children.  The violence they teach and the massacres they promote are images our children should never see.  Yet, we have to admit that one child can play them for a few minutes and walk away.  That child may announce, “Oh, okay.  Just wanted to know what they were about.”  That child may decide on his own that it’s too graphic or too horrible.  Yet, another child picks it up and he’s hooked.  He wants to play it non-stop and as he does his personality becomes angrier and darker.  What’s the difference?  How can we maintain American freedom if two thirds of our society can be influenced into violent behavior?
I have created a Decoder Map that will cover every issue on Violent behaviors in America.  At first glance you may not understand the map.  It is so huge that I had to abreviate some ideas.  As we go through this discussion, the map will get bigger.  I will add specific issues and add links to the posts about each arm of the map.
I encourage you to join the discussion.  Get involved.  Be creative.  See if you can come up with reasons or ideas or even one sentence statements that you feel are part of the problem.   You can leave them as comments or you can send your private ideas to debbie@debbiejansen.com
I’m sorry but I don’t believe that Mr. Biden or his group will cover every fact that relates to this problem – but we will.  We will look under every rock and explore every train of thought that might contribute to the mind of a violent killer.  And when we are through exploring this issue, we will design an intervention map that gives you the promise that your child will not entertain violent thoughts.  As we “grow” children that resist violence, our society will become less violent.  I hope you will encourage others to join our discussion.  Perhaps, with enough momentum we can expand our discussion nationwide.
Our technical problems with the following map has been solved!  It was so incredibly big….and it’s still growing.  The subject of violence has roots in many areas of our lives.  So…to see the chart in a size you can study, click once and it will take you to a single page.  Click again and you can see the chart in a large size.  I look forward to hearing your ideas.  The discussion begins tomorrow!

  1. I agree with your article. Wish I could read the graphics. When I zoom in it blurs. Looks like interesting stuff. I hope you can fix that. You’re definitely on to something!

    1. You are completely on target! One of the arms on our chart includes a discussion of medical and psychological problems. I hope you will do a guest post at that time!

      Thanks Dr. Lazar.

  2. I almost never leave a response, however I browsed a
    bunch of remarks on Gun control won’t fix Sandy Hook Violence | The Mommy Detective. I do have 2 questions for you if you don’t mind.
    Is it just me or do a few of the responses come
    across as if they are written by brain dead people? 😛 And, if you are writing on other social sites,
    I’d like to follow you. Would you make a list of all of your shared sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

  3. I do not know if it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else experiencing issues with your blog. It appears as though some of the text in your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them too? This may be a issue with my browser because I’ve had this happen before.
    Kudos

  4. Hey! Would you mind if I share your blog with my twitter group?
    There’s a lot of folks that I think would really appreciate your content. Please let me know. Cheers
