On The Connecticut Massacre

adamlanzaHow do we stop the violence?

People are already asking this question.

Our secular leaders will come up with an answer, the same answer they always come up with: more laws.

They will ask how this could have been prevented. Perhaps they will require metal detectors at every elementary school, or subject everyone who enters a school to a body cavity search.

More likely, we will see stricter gun laws or laws designed to encourage people to report others they think might walk into an elementary school and murder 20 children.

They will do what they always do, which is deal with the symptoms rather than the cause of the problem because that is all they know how to do. In the meantime, our culture will continue to churn out more Adam Lanzas.

The reason Adam Lanza murdered all those children is because Adam Lanza was a bad person, and the only way the government can deal with bad people is to create more laws to try to restrain them. Only Jesus can turn bad people into good people. The best the government can do is deter bad people from acting out of their badness or lock them up after they do, and that means more laws.

As G.K. Chesterton said, “If man will not be governed by the Ten Commandments, he shall be governed by the ten thousand commandments.”

As long as we continue to turn out bad people, we will have to create more laws to restrain them. GS
