Why does this happen?

July 11, 2009

Why are there so many ‘home slayings’ in the USA as opposed to other countries? Is it because, as some conservatives claim, they have lost their religion ? Religion isn’t taught in US schools anymore I believe. Is it because of the lax gun control laws? Are the NRA to blame ? I must admit, when I was in Arizona a few years ago, almost everyone carried a gun in their bag or car and you could do some clothes shopping in Walmart and then nip over to the gun counter and buy a gun or two and some ammo…..but the statistics of those killed by guns in the state of Arizona is no higher than anywhere else in the US…..so why does this happen in the USA and rarely if ever in, say Italy?

”A couple with hearts big enough to raise 16 children, 12 of them adopted, were murdered in their bedroom Thursday night while eight of their children slept.
Authorities in Florida are seeking three men and a large, red, 1970s or early 1980s model van caught on the murdered couple’s home video surveillance system.
Police say Byrd and Melanie Billings died during an invasion of their Florida home, just west of Pensacola. None of their children were hurt.”
