The good dad may shoot straight as an arrow in good times and in bad and never waver from his steadiness.
However, it doesn't mean that little junior may not fly off the handle or even when junior's baby mama brings over little third for a weekend visit..that he might not somehow see grandpa's stash.

The problem is in the Western World, all countries have mental illness. All countries have violent video games. Many countries are more Godless than the US of A. And they simply do not have mass shootings or at least not on the scale that we have them in the US of A.

If they have lower church attendance than we do, turning to God isn't going to do a thing...unless we're really ready to listen to what is truly being taught about non-violence.
If they also have mental illness just the same as we..... then that doesn't work.
If their kids also play violent video games and watch violence on TV --- then that doesn't work either.
What is left?
Oh --- okay, the ability for civilians to run around with weapons of war....
