Guns Don't Kill People - Divorced Women Kill People

I fully appreciate you desire to keep our children safe. The rise in gun violence, suicide rates, child abuse and other crime rates began in the late 70s. These were all symptoms of a diseased society. Republican responded to this by getting "Tough of Crime" or in other words putting people behind bars. This approach worked well as far as reducing crime rates. There is a cure for the underlying disease but it requires sacrifice. In the 70s in the name a personal fulfillment we changed the very nature of our families. Pryer to the 70s when people had children their obligation was to the children NOT to themselves. In the 70s that was turned on it's head, the passing of laws like no-fault divorce took a 20% divorce rate (many of whom waited till the kids were out of school before divorcing) to a 50% divorce rate. As we devalued marriage many people saw little benefit to it, which resulted in a sharp increase in out of wedlock births and single parent homes. I know this isn't what people want to hear but the truth is Strong Families produce strong kids.

If only the women had stayed in their place, none of this would be happening.

Of course one of the first school shootings in the US took place in Louisville, Kentucky in 1853, but why bother with history when you can rewrite it?

Unbelievable. Statistics have always indicated that unmarried women live much longer than their married counterparts and unmarried men have shorter life spans than their married counterparts. That says something. The idiot doesn't understand that marriage is a man made law purely designed for taxes, census and control. It's meaningless where morals, behavior, character and all other human traits are concerned. If an individual has no loyalty or moral compass, marriage is not going to alter their behavior one iota. Infidelity occurs whether one is married or living together.
And guns are used by out of control immature males against their partners whether they are married to them or not.
