RICHARD BLANKENSHIP: Bring God back into America's schools
January 04, 2013 11:00 AM

Everyone has his or her own ideas of what can be done to prevent school shootings. Well, we could start by bringing God back into our schools. The Lord's Prayer has been discontinued. If a student does not want to say the Lord's Prayer, so be it, but do not condemn others who would like to recite it.

To begin with, we need to elect a God-fearing president and quit supporting same-sex marriages.

I started to school in 1946 and graduated in 1959. In all of those years, there were few shootings in schools.

I know that the number of guns in Pennsylvania totals in the millions. Every household, I am sure, has a gun in it. This is our Second Amendment right to bear arms. I agree there is no need to have a 30-round clip, as this type of gun cannot be used for hunting.

This country aborts 1 million babies a year. I do not know how these doctors live with themselves.

We have rampant pornography and violent video games. Our children watch these video games showing blood splattered all over the walls and sometimes people act out these things.

Our children should be involved in physical activities instead of playing video games. Also, the parents should take notice as to the type of video games they are buying for their children.

Also, for those of you who hate the rich: Did you ever get a paycheck from a poor man?
