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.
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.
After the school shooting in Roseburg, Oregon, there have been other shootings, some drive bys, and a RECENT SCHOOL SHOOTING that at the time of these writing had one person killed several injured with the shooter in captivity, Ben Carson said Roseburg wasn't going to be the last one.
Funny thing about POLITICAL POLLS - if one of the popular regular political figures was doing well in the POLLS, they would be head-over-heels about them, but because they are not in favor of the LIFE-ER candidates, the Presidential hopefuls in the lead Trump, Carson & Fiorina are leading, the POLLS don't matter - so WHY EVEN TALK POLL TALK? Do the POLLS matter?
AND there was a public figure, escapes me at the time, but said, if BEN CARSON won the Presidential election, it would be the REAL FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT of the United States - and I thought the first one, was Bill Clinton - IJS - 347-205-9366, you calling in?
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.
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.

What makes a blog go viral? Is it the title? The author? The topic? A combination of all three?
In the case of Rob Myers blog titled, THERE’S A WAY TO STOP MASS SHOOTINGS, AND YOU WON’T LIKE IT, we might all agree that the title draws us in. What keeps us reading though?
I can only speak for myself that the reason I kept reading was because Rob wasn’t pointing fingers at the system or any system, saying YOU should do this or not do this. In fact, he calls the reader forth in the blog’s very first sentence. “That’s right. (It reads) You’re not going to like it because it’s going to require you to do something personally, as opposed to shouting for the government, or anyone (else) to “do something! You ready? Here it is”
It’s a perfect topic for Voice of Evolution Radio, and yet this is the first time I’m bringing it to my listeners, for the very reason that kept me reading: it’s become a polarity conversation in which we make someone else wrong for the ills of the world, a diffusion of responsibility issue - and Voice of Evolution Radio is NOT about supporting polarity; we are all about voicing polarity for the sake of creating connecting, sustainable and compassionate conversation.
Rob Myers is at present managing the largest single site, off-campus Student Housing facility in the country at 2500 beds. Previously, he was a Regional Manager in Gainesville, FL and a fixer for troubled student housing assets. He’s a walking Student Housing operations manual (in his own words) in a delightfully pleasant package, loving Budgets, Marketing, and Team Building, just a few of his favorite things.
