Statement from the Candidate

In 2010 I ran an unsuccessful campaign for the United States Congress, but I'm still posting blogs that I believe express an opinion that most other people miss, and that I also believe can make America great again and cast off the yoke of liberal/progressive control that is currently in place.

Can Communities “Heal” Following Mass Shooting Deaths?

Aside from demands to confiscate all privately held weapons from Americans, the only solution the political left offers following mass shootings and the wanton killing of Americans, usually students gunned down in their classes, is to conduct sob meetings that will help the community “heal”. But this magical “healing” process on a community scale is a load of leftist, touchy-feely bull.

No mother, father, brother or sister can ever “heal” following the violent death of a family member, no matter how publicly the left parades the politically viable act. Such emotional events only give the left another venue from which to stir up emotions on a larger scale and pitch their single solution to these horrible happenings: confiscate all guns.

For the family there is no such thing as “healing” following the death of a loved one, although they may take some comfort in accepting that the pain will soften and become less sharp over time; but it will never go away.  And at the community level, exactly what is this “healing” thing, and what is the meaning of the word “closure” in this context? It’s a political movement, fed by pain and suffering, conducted by the anti-constitution left and their hate for America and its traditions, and nothing else.

When one considers the out-of-control number of shooting deaths that occur every week in Democrat-run cities like Chicago and Baltimore, in which gun control is most harshly legislated and enforced, and when one realizes that there is neither appropriate action taken against, nor sufficient investigations launched to identify the killers of, these events, other than pleading the charges down for a more rapid abandoning of these types of cases, one realizes why these crimes are so prevalent in cities that claim to be “sanctuary cities” but are really just Democrat-controlled crime zones.

The only way Americans can be “healed” from its plague of school shootings is to limit gun sales to people who are rigorously vetted, identify those already in possession of guns who are possibly dangerous people, and to have armed personnel in schools to halt attackers when they present themselves.
