You really believe something that naive? Man, it must be a trip walking through life being that naive and brain-washed by the media and your teachers. Kids are ****ed up because we have a ****ed up society (with MORE gun laws than ever before as well as thousands upon thousands of other laws that never existed before) Sorry kid, but it's not the laws that need to be tightened; it's the morons who control the media, the educational system and the arts that need to be questioned and restrained from exercising such biased, emotionally manipulative control. The actual facts thoroughly and absolutely contradict your reasoning, dude...
In fact, ever since extreme liberalism really got rolling along with some steam in the 60's, our society has decayed at an almost unprecidented rate. The media, the teacher's unions and therapists around the country started espousing all sorts of very liberal and politically correct philosophies such as the one(s) you have obviously been influenced by, and yet the moral fabric of country has come apart completely. Basically, we have been experiencing and witnessing a state of entrpoy that is the natural, unavoidable result of the various social movements of the past century that had a focus that can be oversimplified as, "Morals, standards, and god... they are all outdated and old fashioned notions that should be changed or done away with."
We are living in a society that is the fruit of labors of several generations of highly liberal and selfish thought. We are living exactly what they wanted, but they didn't believe or know that this is what they were actually asking for.
These are just the facts, Sparky, and no gun laws, or any other politically correct, ******* laws are going to provide the results you are seemingly looking for. Sorry to attack your beliefs, but you were just wrong on this one, dude.
It's not the gun laws, bro... it is a society that has been obsessed with ridding themselvees of personal responsibility, reason, and the concept of right and wrong. Ever since the "influential class" (again: that's the media, the arts and the educational system) embraced the ideas of Reletivism, Hedonism, Liberalism and the like, our culture has decayed at an alarming rate.
But what can we expect from a society that wants to convince us that hundreds upon thousands of our children are supposedly not little undisciplined *******s, but instead they are just some poor little victims of things like "ADD" and "ADD/HD" and all the other bunk they purport? Yeah, I'm sure you saw that episode of South Park, hell, they just replayed it several times this past week... well, dude, as humorous and cynical as it was, the truth is, we are doing even more to screw up the society that our children will grow up into. As things stand now, all of this will be much worse in 10, 20 or 30 years from now.
Oh, and it's okay for little Johnny to be consumed with a desire to have intimate knowledge of your little brother's bunghole... he was born that way, he didn't choose to be ***... of course not: we live in a society that seemingly does not have any grasp of the notions of personal responsibility and acountability. There's an excuse for everything, and it is the selfish, twisted politicians (read: Clinton, Gore, et al) who know how to play your emotions who have helped herd us like a bunch of mindless sheep away from a society that had a sense of pride, loyalty, integrity and purpose into a bumbling mass of whining, excuse-ridden little wimps and idiots.
But I think I'm sort of on a rant here...
