    Broken Families Far More Lethal To Children than Guns ​



    By Daniel Greenfield
    January 13, 2013


    It’s not the gun culture, it’s the broken family culture. ​


    A new Justice Department study looking at violent crimes committed against “youth”—defined as Americans from 12 to 17 years of age—discovered that the rate of “serious violent crime” committed against youth by a perpetrator using a firearm dropped 95 percent from 1994 to 2010.

    The study—“Violent Crime Against Youth, 1994-2010”–also discovered that American youth who were victims of a serious violent crime in 2010 were six times more likely to have been attacked by a perpetrator wielding a knife than one wielding a gun.

    The study, released Dec. 20, also discovered that an American youth was 3.8 times more likely to become the victim of a serious violent crime if he or she lived in a home where the householder was unmarried than if he or she lived with married parents. In 2010, 7.4 out of every 1,000 youth living with married parents became the victims of a serious violent crime. At the same time, 27.8 out of every 1,000 living with an unmarried householder became the victims of a serious violent crime.

    Unfortunately, that's very true. I see it everyday at work. Many of my clients would not end up being my clients if they had a strong family. The boys dont have men in their lives to show them how to do it correctly. And some turn to a life of crime. And those that make it have women complain about how they act like boys instead of men.

    And girls need their fathers too. Not only to be in their life but to be a good influence in their life. That's one of the reasons I've promised myself I will always be a part of my daughters life. I don't want her to turn out like others Ive seen.

    We need to step up and start fixing our families through humility, honesty, mutual respect, forgiveness, service, and charity and countless other virtues that this society desperately needs.

    That is why the all politicians are missing the point. Why marry when you can have all those baby momas and don't bother paying for their support. Let the Progressive Socialists pay for it and in the meantime pay for the Food Stamps and welfare of both the baby momas and the breeder. Hmm..., no wonder Planned Parenthood performed more than a million abortions with Obama funded financing.

    OMG Avatar4321, you are completely fucked up in the head, if families actually stayed together across the nation, this would bring an END to Titty Bars, or we can get some 55 year old homeless widow to dance in them.
