Flawed view of man leads to flawed solutions to violence
More gun control won't stop acts of evil

While many may not agree with me, I'd like to point out a denial of Biblical truth which has permeated modern thinking and leads to flawed approaches to dealing with what psychologists and sociologists would call deviant or pathological behavior -- deviant being contrary to socially accepted norms, and pathological often being associated with mental deficiencies and mental illness. Modern thinking views man as basically good. And, where deviant or socially unacceptable behavior occurs, the cause is not sought in the person but in the environment in which he or she lives or was raised or in some sort of mental disease or disorder.
