There Is A Question Both The Right & Left Are Asking After The Texas Shooting & It’s A Good Question
There is A LOT of rhetoric flying around the internet surrounding the heartbreaking shooting that took place at the Robb Elementary School in Texas.
However, there is one question that some on the left and right are asking and it is a good question.
Why are young men shooting up public places?
You wouldn’t believe it but conservative commentator Glenn Beck and The Atlantic writer Tom Nichols separately both asked the same question.
Nichols noted that “guns didn’t change. There used to be machine guns in America. Lots of other weapons. Stuff guys brought home from various wars. And yet, *young men shooting up public places* was not a constant.”
“This should raise the suspicion of a logical person that if there were always plenty of guns, plenty of mental illness (more untreated in earlier times) and plenty of racism (more more than in the 21st century), maybe something else is going on,” he continued.
Nicholas continued, “And it’s especially suspicious that this *particular* type of incident is becoming more common even as crime is going *down*. Worse, something that was a primarily weird white kid phenom is starting to branch out to young guys of other races.”
In other words, this is a problem with young men in general, not like the Democrat talking point used after the Buffalo massacre.
Beck asked the same question and during a segment pondered if “there’s nothing more dangerous than a man with nothing to live for and nothing to do.”
The Uvalde massacre has nothing to do with guns and everything to do with the “epidemic of meaningless” our culture has given young men, @BlazeTV‘s @conservmillen tells me: “There’s nothing more dangerous than a man with nothing to live for and nothing to do.” pic.twitter.com/JFh5OZTs5n
