We conservatives have been saying for decades that the institutionalized phenomenon of the single mother is a disaster for our nation and our society. We have explained that kids need to have both parents in the home including a strong father to give the children direction and balance in their thinking. But the liberals have said that women can do it all on their own.
Nonsense. Single mothers have much higher rates of poverty than married women, and their children do too. Their children have higher failure rates in life. Single mothers and their children even have higher rates of crime victimization. This does not apply to all single mothers, however, but to most, statistically.
Now look at this from Foxnews.com:
PORTLAND, Ore. – The (single) mother of a gunman who killed nine people and himself at an Oregon community college allowed her troubled son to have guns and acknowledged in online posts that he struggled with autism, but she didn’t seem to know he was potentially violent. The online writings by Laurel Harper date from between 2006 and 2014 and offer fresh insight into the gunman, 26-year-old Christopher Harper-Mercer, and his relationship with his mother.
Harper and son shared an apartment outside Roseburg. Investigators have recovered 14 firearms — six found at Umpqua Community College, where the killings occurred, and eight at the apartment. Neighbors of the mother and son in California, where they lived before moving to Oregon in 2013, have said Harper-Mercer and his mother would go target shooting together. Investigators say Harper-Mercer’s mother has told them the son was struggling with some mental health issues. In her online postings, Laurel Harper talked about her love of guns and her son’s emotional troubles but there are no hints of worry that he could become violent…. While living in California, Harper-Mercer graduated from a learning center for students with learning disabilities and emotional problems. His parents divorced when he was a teenager and he lived with his mother.
OK, so she loved guns and the kid had mental problems. And thus the media template is that another 2nd Amendment gun nut created another opportunity for mass killing.
No, this woman is a black single mother. Her son is half-black, half-white (like Obama) and this is the reason that these killings are not being reported for their racial aspect, or for the fact that Christian students were targeted. Meanwhile we 2nd Amendment supporters cannot account for every idiot in the world like Laurel Harper. No responsible gun owner would allow someone with mental problems like her son to have guns (of which he owned 14). She should be tried in court as an accessory to her son’s crimes.
This kid also had an internet affinity for witchcraft, satanism, paganism and other dark, anti-Christian thinking. So it is no surprise that he did what he did. Just as we conservatives warn.
Indeed Laurel Harper created this monster. She is like the moronic single mother in Connecticut who showed her disturbed son how to shoot and then kept guns around the house, leading to the Sandy Hook school killings. That mother ended up murdered by her own son, which is no surprise.
In short, if kids have sensible fathers in the home then the father would know what is going on with his kids. But the War on Fathers since the 1960s from the Democrat left has left millions of kids adrift and free to do whatever they want.
The right to own a gun is a very serious one. It has kept America stable for more than 200 years. Europe, on the other hand, where guns are tightly controlled, had two world wars in the first half of the 20th century, with 100 million people killed in genocide and conflict, and the continent destroyed twice over. Yet liberals claim that “peaceful” Europe has low rates of gun crime. What a joke…
Consider Obama, who is a big gun-control partisan who now is seeking to finalize a nuclear deal that would allow the terror state of Iran to have an atomic bomb, which can kill 1 million people at once and obliterate an entire city. Meanwhile here is an excerpt from Associated Press:
WASHINGTON – A push (by Obama) to overhaul criminal sentencing is prompting the early release of thousands of federal drug prisoners, including some whom prosecutors once described as threats to society, according to an Associated Press review of court records….an AP analysis of nearly 100 court cases also found defendants who carried semi-automatic weapons, had past convictions for robbery and other crimes, moved cocaine shipments across states, and participated in international heroin smuggling.
Yes, indeed, Mr. Gun Control Barack Obama has struck another sinister note with a prison reform agenda – as if we don’t have better things to think about. Notice that some of those inmates being released carried powerful weapons as they committed crimes. So where is Obama’s hysterical call for gun control?
Answer: It really is a decoy to shift the spotlight away from “criminal control” which is what we really need, and which Obama and all Democrats oppose in order to blame the gun and the National Rifle Association for every crime.
