SORT BY Relevancy
This week Chris and Rich will discuss how Christians should respond to school shootings. Liberals want to take away all the guns. Conservatives want everybody armed. Is the issue really about guns, or are the other forces at play? What should the Christian's answer be to such tragedy? Chris will also discuss his recent trip to the Sacramento Christian Organization of Parent Educators (SCOPE) Conference. He'll talk about what he learned and how Christians can be encouraged to fulfill the admonition to train up their children in the fear of the Lord. Chris and Rich will talk about recent events in the news from a Christian perspective and will take listener calls and questions. Join us this week 4 - 6 pm Pacific for a great show.
Following the shooting at Reynolds High School in Oregon this past week, many media outlets, including CNN, reported that there have been 74 school shootings in the past 18 months.
That's the time period since the December 2012 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, where 20 children and six adults were shot to death.
Does media attention, some say sensationalizing, school violence contribute to the cause of such incidents?
Do gun laws have an effect on the violence in schools?
What part do parents play in the picture of violence at schools?
Obviously, there is always enough blame to pass around.
Jump "In the Pickle Barrel" this morning 7-8:30AM EST as we discuss these issues.
Dr. Cathy Reimers, Ph.D., psychologist in New Jersey, and co-host Jennifer Russello, parent in New Jersey, discuss the alarming increase in school shootings. There have been 9 school shootings already in 2014, and the total number of school shootings in the past 3 years is a frightening 73. The numbers are growing rapidly each year, with the United States consistently reporting the highest number of school shootings in the world. As the number of incidents continues to go up, so do the fatalities. Small children are being killed in school, as suddenly shooters are entering elementary schools. In the past, these shootings were more common in middle and high schools; but no one is safe anymore. The shooters have been profiled and most are white males with a vendetta. Join us as we explore the profile of a school shooter and what parents and educators can do in the war to keep our
schools and our kids safe.

Dr. Cathy Reimers, Ph.D., psychologist in New Jersey, and co-host Jennifer Russello, parent in New Jersey, continue to discuss the alarming increase in school shootings. Last week we reviewed the stats: there have been 9 school shootings already in 2014, and the total number of school shootings in the past 3 years is a frightening 73. The numbers are growing rapidly each year, with the United States consistently reporting the highest number of school shootings in the world. As the number of incidents continues to go up, so do the fatalities. Small children are being killed in school, as suddenly shooters are entering elementary schools. In the past, these shootings were more common in middle and high schools; but no one is safe anymore. We talked about the profile of the shooters and how many of them were white males with a vendetta; some had been bullied, some had an intense interest in violent gaming and we discovered that most shootings had been planned well in advance. Join us in part two as we explore how school shootings are related to the failed mental health system in our country, the effects of psychiatric drugs in adolescents, the use of illegal drugs by kids and more. Finding factors to blame, rightfully or not, is almost the easy part: poor parenting, easy access to guns, less value for the sanctity of life, violent video games, a broken mental health system. Stopping the violence isn’t. Join us as we talk about what parents and educators can do in the war to keep our schools and kids safe.
