Albert Mohler: Heartbreak Behind the Headlines

Headlines

Once again: A school shooting.

Once again: Tragedy stares us in the face.

Once again: We have the report of numerous fatalities and an even larger number of those who are wounded.

This time, it was a high school in Parkland Florida—and the questions come, the questions that are inevitable in the aftermath of this kind of headline, the questions that vex us, the most difficult of which seem to have no easy solution at all. We’re looking at a reality that is playing out over and over again.

Even as there is an immediate clamor to try to analyze, to explain and to prescribe, what we need to understand is that there are right now very real families, very real relatives, friends, peers, parents. There are very real patients who are wounded. There are very real human beings who are grieving in Parkland, Florida and beyond.

As hard as it may be to convince the larger world that this is true, the most important issue here is not headlines but human hearts.

Michael Medved: The Nobel Prize Encourages A Dangerous Fantasy

Opioid

In another inane choice for the prestigious Nobel Peace Prize, the Norwegian Nobel Committee selected an organization known as ICAN—the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons. The idea of “abolishing” nuclear weapons is absurd, of course: if the world enacted the restrictive treaties proposed by the campaign, then decent, law-abiding nations would be disarmed while rogue states like North Korea and Iran would continue developing the nuclear weapons they might use with impunity.

Similar flawed logic underlies the current gun debate: just as they wish nukes had never been invented, so too many liberals passionately wish that firearms had never been designed or manufactured. But that’s a childish fantasy, since you can’t magically “abolish” a familiar, well-established technology, or prevent destructive forces from accessing it. As with dreams of “abolishing” nuclear weapons, attempts to regulate guns out of existence will leave the bad guys much stronger while the good guys became vastly more vulnerable.
