Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) is urging Senate leadership to remove from appropriations legislation any anti-gun violence research riders or the Dickey amendment. Senator Ron Wyden and the other 22 Democratic Senators supporting this removal have stated: Only the United States government is in a position to establish an integrated public-health research agenda to understand the causes of gun violence and identify the most effective strategies for prevention.
For those who are not aware, the root cause of this evil behavior is the harden hearts of people, and this evilness will always find a way to kill and maim because all people have been born into sin.
All we hear from politicians is that we need to have more gun control or study why people cause violence and murders. Over the ages people have been killing millions of people with whatever means was available to murder.
For example, in the last few weeks these tragic events occurred:
- July 14, 2016 in Nice France, 84 innocent individuals were killed by a big truck, which was the weapon of choice.
- July 26, 2016 in Sagamihara, Japan, 19 people were killed and 25 injured by one person using a knife.
Is the solution to stop these two murder tragedies is to have more control or ban on knives and Big trucks? Of course it is not. Because the root cause is the harden hearts of humans.
The only solution to this harden heart problem and the evilness that is associated with it, is for all humans to give their lives over to Jesus Christ. If you are willing to accept Jesus Christ into your life as Lord and Savior, your life will start changing to a more positive way. Over time, the evilness that is in the person’s heart will go away.
There is no other full proof and effective solution.
All other solutions are a band aid approach to this killing issue and deceives the general public that politicians know how to fix it.
