Ever since last month’s mass shooting in Parkland, Florida, numerous lies about it have been told as liberals shamelessly tried to use the tragedy to push their gun control agenda. Now, a fed-up Wisconsin sheriff has gone rogue to reveal the real “root cause” of mass shootings in the U.S. that the media refuses to cover.
Western Journalism reported that Dodge County Sheriff Dale Schmidt took to Facebook to say that the real cause of the abundance of mass shootings may be a radical culture shift that has occurred in the U.S. over the years — a culture shift caused by weak parenting.
“Following every mass killing, I ask myself, what has happened to our society?” Schmidt wrote. “I also wonder what the solution is to ensure our families do not become future victims.”
Schmidt explained that “years ago, people would go to school and have hunting rifles in their vehicles,” but “mass violence in schools and other locations did not happen as in society today.” He wrote that there is clearly a “root cause” fueling the drastic shift that has occurred over the years, and that “there is no quick and easy solution” to stop it.
“It’s my belief that the root cause starts with our youth lacking basic skills including respect for authority figures like parents and teachers, the ability to cope with conflict and the ability to handle rejection,” Schmidt said.
Schmidt went on to say that substance abuse and mental health problems are also a driving factor, but noted that “it is imperative that we raise our children in a manner that instills respect for authority.” He said that it is crucial that every child face “disappointment” at some point in his or her life in order to build character and develop a basic understanding of how to handle adversity.
“While no one wants their child to ever be disappointed or upset, when they are young, they need to face conflict and disappointment and learn to resolve it appropriately under the guidance of adults,” the sheriff wrote. “When youth are not taught how to handle difficult situations, they must find their own way to cope, which without guidance may be result in unhealthy or even dangerous future behavior.”
“Many have strong opinions about gun control but realistically gun control will do nothing more than place a very small band aid on a much bigger problem,” he stated in his conclusion.
The left has tried to make this issue solely about guns, but it is actually about way more than just that. SHARE this story if you agree with what Sheriff Schmidt had to say!
