To Shoot or Not

Can a whole population be educated to be kinder and more just?  Look at the random shootings in the U.S. and compare that with the random shootings in Switzerland where each citizen keeps a military carbine at home with a small amount of ammunition.  They almost never have a misuse of that weapon.  Is it the culture?  The education?

I think it’s the influence of religion in Western culture.  Nobody wants to be the crazy guy.  There’s a strong sense of community approval.  This in a nation that counts many admired heroes in its history.

Whatever the cause, there’s hope for mankind.  Don’t give up yet.  There is hope we’ll come out of this yet.  And don’t neglect prayer.
