Jerry Newcombe: America Has a Problem With Anger

America has an anger problem. There was another random shooting — this time in a city east of Santa Cruz in California.

The Mercury News (7/28/19) reports: “At least four people were dead, including a suspect, and 15 people injured after a gunman cut through a security fence and opened fire on a crowd Sunday evening near the end of the Gilroy Garlic Festival, sending panicked festival goers running for their lives.”

The gunman was reported to have opened fire on the crowd with an assault-style rifle. Witnesses heard someone shout, “Why are you doing this?” and the gunman replied, “Because I’m really angry.”

Before his death, the gunman posted on Instagram,“Read Might is Right by Ragnar Redbeard,” according to NBC News. That 1890 anti-Christian, racist screed is subtitled, “Or, Survival of the Fittest,” and it promotes Social Darwinism. After all, if humanity is just glorified apes, then why should we be surprised when someone acts like one?—with apologies to apes. Indeed, ideas have consequences.

According to police, officers on the scene shot and killed the suspect within one minute of the shooting.

We are becoming jaded as a society because of all these types of shootings. These angry people, usually men, kill a number of strangers and often themselves, as if that ends their problems. They will discover that their real problems have only just begun.

The left says it is all the guns’ fault, and they demand we turn the rest of the country into Chicago. There, strict gun control laws take away guns from the law-abiding citizens, while the criminals have all the guns. Four people killed one weekend night is commonplace in Chicago because of the strict gun control laws.
