In the hysteria of these senseless killings there is a call for gun control. Read the editorial and opinion page Dec. 17 Minneapolis paper and you will see that people say we have bigger problems than gun control.

The social fabric of this country is deteriorating. Parents spend far less time with their children today than ever.

Kids spend far more time playing violent video games and watching violent TV shows than studying. And the list goes on.

Here is a thought to ponder: “Dear God, why do you allow so much violence in our schools? Signed a concerned student.

Dear concerned student, I’m not allowed in schools. God”
