There are a lot of components to a capitalistic society that are major advantages. There aren’t limits on someone’s potential. There are freedoms, such as the right to bear arms, that allow people to live their own lives and pursue their own dreams.
Yet today, as gun violence spreads across the media airwaves like an un-vaccinated disease, we’re all left with one question: are we choosing to become victims?
There are people who have drug abuse issues, mental health issues, or even just financial issues. They’ve been more than left behind by today’s society – they’ve been forgotten about. This leaves these people with no choice but to do something dramatic in order to regain the attention from society that they feel they deserve.
That’s not to say that they aren’t responsible for their own choices. It’s to say that we are responsible for our choices.
If we choose to ignore people who need help, then we may have taken a step toward a possibly violent act. If we choose to help people and address their needs, we may have taken a step back from violence and not choose to be victims ourselves.
There’s one lesson to learn from these incidents: it’s not that we should be afraid of guns – it’s that we should pay more attention to those around us who might need some help and then provide that help if necessary…
… and not let the liberal media take advantage of situations like this to promote their gun control agenda!
