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.
As we pass the one year anniversary of the horrific tragedy of the school shooting in Newton, CT, it is appropriate for us to spend some time discussing the undeniable increase in the number of school shootings our nation is experiencing. Quick fact: There have been more school shootings in 2011/2012 than there were in the entire decade of the 1980s. Something is happening . . . the "what" is not clear. Today we consider some factors which you may not have considered, but are clearly ones that need to be.
Like many other issues facing our nation, the obvious solution is rarely the correct one. There are underlying factors that are contributing to these shootings. We must be willing to look beneath the surface and consider more subtle reasons . . . or a combination of more subtle reasons. Unfortunately, the only two issues that have played well politically is "gun control" and "arming teachers" . . . neither of these ideas get at the heart of the matter.
Today we identify a few possibilities . . . what do you think? After listening to the show, add your comments at the very bottom of this page.

While the nation stops to remember the lives of the 20 children and six adults gunned down a year ago at Sandy Hook Elementary School, please join me on this very special episode of Own Your Life as I discuss the lessons learned from the past year following the shooting. I will discuss the affects of the tragedy and the toll it takes on the mind and the soul. I will explore the changes made and the changes that need to be made in mental health and how it applies to these situations. I will also discuss how we can safeguard our children from trauma and tragedy. I will also tackle the ideas of gun control and how states have passed laws, but how our own federal government continues with debates. Please keep all of the families affected by this senseless tragedy in your thoughts and prayers.

School shootings, such as those at Columbine and Virginia Tech have become a disturbing trend, especially in the United States.
The recent Norway massacre along with Chinese school stabbings are symptoms of an unprecedented attack against children worldwide.
Terrorists attacks, such as these and others, are rarely dealt with by major authors and except for the documentary, Bowling for Columbine, film makers shun dealing with the topic, preferring escapist or nostalgic plots that do little to raise awareness and concern among the public. Why is this?
Author and mental health expert, Kenneth Weene, who has just released his latest work, "Memoirs from the Asylum," will be joining me this week to discuss his point of view. You can visit his website at http://www.authorkenweene.com/ for his bio and more info.
Informative Session 2/2014 "School Shooting and White Denial" is about massacres committed in caucasian neighborhoods, however, the focus of legislation is GUN VIOLENCE. Mr. Wise; states his truth, he calls it like he sees it. We have experienced a number of massacres in malls, movie theatres, and schools. The most devestating of them all is the one in Newton Town when a young man shot 20 children dead.
He examines the massacres, examine the perportrator and then he tells it like it is. Listen to the reading on Thursday, May 1, 2014 @ 6:00 pm.
