After listening to all the demands and outrage by politicians and talking heads on TV about the shooting in Uvalde, Texas, I thought of two things in connection with this horrible tragedy and how it might have had a different outcome.

First: Introduce the following changes to federal gun laws as follows: “No individual between ages 18 and 21 will be allowed to buy a firearm without a parent or legal guardian’s approval, signed in person at the place of purchase.”

Second: The misguided outcry that our approach to Mental Health issues in America needs fixing. The real problem behind such a hideous act as that committed by this deranged young man is not Mental Health, but Moral Health.

Therefore, no person should be able to receive a graduation certificate from high school without taking a 2-semester hour class on Ethics in their junior or senior year. With Bible and prayer being taken out of our homes and schools, these young people have no moral compass to guide them in deciding what is the right or wrong thing to do when under stress.

These are just my thoughts, and I wanted to share them with you. Thank you for reading what I have written with an open mind. God bless you.

    You certainly got the point of the mental health issues today stemming from poor moral health spot on! The overly therapeutic psychological environment many of today’s youth grow up in completely misses actual healing found in repentance and turning to Christ. Instead of pointing out the sinful nature of humanity, many people attempt to excuse such behavior by applying a label to a perceived mental disorder.
