If I have not offended enough of you with my previous rants, let me try to remedy that today.

Gun control: Like most issues, our geniuses in Washington are focusing on their re-election rather than trying to solve a serious problem. "Assault weapons" and "mental health" are too easy to drum up emotions and false solutions. Let's dig deeper. How about the background of the "shooters?"

To further agitate our readers, how about single-mother households and deadbeat dads? Look at what has happened to families; too many children lack a father figure. How does this impact a young boy's development?

I postulate that our efforts should focus on bringing back the family ethic rather than trampling on constitutional rights. Oops, does that let the cat out of the bag?

What is the real elephant in the room — mental health? Yes, but how did that happen? If you decide to be a father, be a man first. We should demand that!
