We Got Trouble, Trouble, Trouble, Right Here in the USA, It Starts with “S” and that Sands for Single Mothers Rearing Sons

The Top Gun National Crises Troubleshooter, Retired

April 4, 2013

We have a national crisis on our hands and it involves “Single Parent Mothers” Rearing their Sons as their “Significant Other”.   When a Single Mother treats her son as her “Significant Other” they are not adding discipline to the parenting mix, but instead give them anything they want to win their approval.  This is not parenting; this is a “Dysfunctional Family”. 

A few cases have hit the News Headlines one in which the mother bought guns for her young son and let him program himself with violence playing “violent Video Games”, unsupervised.  Sons reared under these circumstances are receiving little or no supervision from their Fathers.  We have seen the results, many dead school children shot by this “Dysfunctional Family”, yes that is correct, by this “Dysfunctional Family” not just the Son who did the actual shooting, but the whole “Dysfunctional Family”.

We now have State and the Federal officials going after “Gun Control” when they have failed to identify the correct problem “Single Mothers Rearing Sons” as their “Significant Other”.  This is a “Social Problem” not a “Gun Problem”.

I have witnessed this phenomenon of a “Single Parent Mother” Rearing her Son as her “Significant Other”.   I even witnessed her buying her ten year old Son a small caliber rifle, why?  Because he wanted a rifle and she wanted his approval. 

We have a national crisis on our hands and it is not about guns, it is about parenting.

Re: Shooters on Campus
Reference: The Local New Paper, February 14, 2013

Note: The names were changed to protect the innocent

Local College, Hometown, Home state, USA:  “On February 6, 2013, emergency management expert, “Bill Murray” (The name was changed to protect the innocent &interject humor), led a training session designed to educate administrators, instructors and students on how to prepare for an active shooter on campus.  These are his concluding statements “If there is a path to get out, take it immediately” …..” if escape is not possible, hide…. Hide out, find a place concealed from the shooter’s view, one that will provide some measure of protection.  Lock and barricade the door turn off all lights and close any blinds.  ….do not huddle together…..  Finally, if it’s determined there is no other option than to take out the shooter, be prepared to do whatever is necessary to neutralize the threat, either by disrupting his actions or incapacitating him.  Throw books, backpacks or chairs, yell or use improvised weapons

Comments by the nation’s Top Gun National Crises Troubleshooter, Retired

  1. The last time I was in a college classroom there was a teacher’s desk and student chairs in the room.  “Take cover out of sight and don’t huddle together”?  Where?
  2. “Neutralize the threat, either by disrupting his actions or incapacitating him. Throw books, backpacks or chairs, yell or use improved weapons.”?   I hope I am not the only one who can see how erroneous this instruction is.  The old saw, “don’t take a knife to a gun fight” rings a bell.  Now they want the students to bring a book, backpack, chair or improvised weapon to a gun fight!!  This is good material for a stand-up Comedian!
  3. Arming and training the teachers in the use of a weapon is the correct response to these threats on campuses.   Just the public knowledge that the teachers are armed will no doubt prevent a shooter from entering a campus and if he does the teachers are prepared to “neutralize the threat” with a real weapon, not an improvised weapon.
