A Nation of Children

The biggest problem facing the United States of America is that many of its citizens and residents who are not citizens and some of whom are illegally here is their refusal to grow up and take responsibility for their own lives.
This has recently been exemplified by the 30 year old man who sued his parents, demanding his right to live free in their basement and in NFL players demanding their right to protest whatever they want to protest by taking a knee when the National Anthem is being sung and played. The problem is rampant. Democrats refuse to admit that Hillary lost the election fair and square. Blame everything on the Russians. Blame everything on Trump. Blame everyone but never, ever blame yourself. Scream loudly about your rights but never admit to being responsible for anything.
Basically what we have going on is people who are older than 18 having temper tantrums.
Much of this is caused by what is loving called the Welfare State. In and odd twist to their right to life, many actually believe it means everyone has an obligation to feed, clothe, house, provide medical care and some spending money so they can have a good time - while failing to believe they have any obligation to keep alive and give birth to the innocent child they created when having a "really good time."
America, it is well past time to grow up.

The problem is not guns

Those who argue we need more and better laws limiting who can own/buy a gun are living in a fantasy world. Guns are all over the place and have been all over the place even before this land became the USA. There are millions of them. They are in more house and apartments than you can imagine.
If you care about kids in schools and don't want to see them getting killed by kids in the schools, there is only one solution and it has nothing to do with banning guns nor does it have anything to do with who can purchase a gun.
What is needed is a national law forcing all schools to adopt strict security measures. All doors in schools should be locked. Everyone and anyone, including the kids, need to be scanned with metal detectors. Security cameras need to be operating at all entrances to the school. A security guard should be present at all doors that allow people to enter, including students.
Just remember this. Most inner city schools have had this kind of security in place for many years. This is why you don't hear of mass shootings taking place at inner city schools. The shootings take place in suburban and country schools where the security is lax or no existent.
Wake up America. Debating gun control will only continue the killing.
