Libs Refuse to Admit What All 6 of These Mass Shooters Had in Common

Categories: Culture

Liberals will not want to admit this, but Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock, who allegedly committed suicide Sunday after opening fire on a country music concert from the 32nd floor of a nearby hotel, killing 58 innocent men and women, shares a lot in common with five other mass shooters.

As noted by Michael Cook of MercatorNet, an Australia-based media organization, Paddock came from a dysfunctional family — just like shooters Dylann Roof, Adam Lanza, John Zawahri, Wade Page and Elliott Rodger.

“The surprising feature of Paddock’s background was that his father was a colourful bank robber who had escaped from jail and was on the FBI’s most wanted list from 1969 to 1977,” Cook wrote Tuesday. “No wonder that Stephen Paddock’s brother Eric said that their father was largely absent from their lives.”

Interestingly, similar dynamics applied to the lives of the five other mass shooters.

Roof, who killed nine during a racially motivated shooting in 2015, had a “violent father who beat up his stepmother and hired a private detective to follow her when they split,” according to a report from the U.K. Daily Mail.

The parents of Lanza, who opened fire at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012, killing six staff members and 20 children, “divorced in 2009 after 28 years of marriage because their relationship had ‘broken down irretrievably,'” according to court records cited by The Washington Post.

Likewise, Zawahri, who killed five during a mass shooting in 2013, grew “increasingly angry and frustrated” after his parents separated, according to a statement made by his mom.

Next is Page, a white supremacist who killed six Sikhs in 2012. His parents divorced in 2001. And with Rodger, a 22-year-old who stabbed and shot six people during an encounter in 2014, his parents divorced when he was just seven.

See the connection?

“It’s easier criticise gun control laws than it is to criticise the culture of divorce and to chronicle how it devastates the lives of the spouses and their children,” opined Cook. “That’s why we’ll be hearing lots more about rifles than relationships.”

Let alone the pernicious decline in morals and values. Instead of living to raise a family, too many Americans — and others across the world, in fact — now pursue valueless lives of heathenism, prioritizing their immediate pleasure over all else.

Combined, the decline in values, the destruction of the family unit and the rollback of a basic societal structure that has worked for millennia has clearly upended civilization, leading to a rise in shootings, mass shootings, stabbings, rapes, etc.

What’s the solution? It’s certainly not to just pass more laws and hope for the best. No. It requires a paradigm switch — a change in trajectory for our culture, which frankly has become too bogged down with wickedness, and too lacking in love, family and God.
