I am working on a blog of Sandy Hook Observations. Will take a while. It is very complex. This might be one of them, but even if it is not, here is something on my mind.
Tony Robbins said once in one of those infomercials that made him insanely rich...
"If you want to be successful, watch what the successful people do, and then just do that."
That was paraphrased. He didn't use those exact words, but he used that exact sentiment.
So, it would seem to me that if we want to stop gun violence, and generally all the needless, criminal violence we see in America, Canada, and all over really, why don't we look at the places that seem to be able to avoid the problem and figure out what they are doing, and start doing that?
I was just in the Cayman Islands and I can tell you this:
They don't allow any guns of any kind. Cops don't carry them and citizens are not allowed to have them. Caymans is a seemingly rich country with lots of wealth. They have almost no crime and people don't lock their doors at night. And they have had 1 murder the whole year, out of something like 60,000 plus people. And that is in line with every year, it is not a fluke.
So, what are they doing and why is it working for them?
My opinion, they have a better class of people. The problem is we allow second class citizens to exist and vote and they cause the issues. They also have no taxes to remove the wealth from the poorer people and give it to the rich or a safety net to let the freeloaders survive.
Just my take.
