Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin destroys gun control!
Well worth a listen. Wise man.

And as our very own Richard Winkel commented, circumcision may also factor into the equation. After all, violence begets violence.
As a circumcised woman, I have always related better to men than women, and I finally realized it was because I relate better to traumatized people than peaceful people. Circumcision certainly sends the message that you are not valued, not respected, not loved and cherished; that you are no more than a body, a slab of meat; that you must submit to authority because you are powerless, helpless and hopeless. These teachings can stick and need to be seen for what they are, then thoroughly “divorced”, released. They are false, destructive, subconscious mind-control teachings that surely have tormented some who have given up this beautiful gift of life prematurely.
Males in the USA commit suicide four times as often as females and I have often wondered if that might have something to do with circumcision. I tell the story of my childhood interest in suicide in my book The Rape of Innocence: Female Genital Mutilation and Circumcision in the USA. I have also met other circumcised women who have also reported serious attempts at suicide very early in life.
Now that the birthing process is more violent for both baby genders, even though females so far have been spared routine infant circumcision, undue birth trauma and daily stressors are extreme for both, so some girls may be as suicidal and reactive as boys. It’s just not easy being a people – especially in a world where someone sitting in a palatial estate somewhere apparently wants to rule the world… and is working hard to make that happen.
I’d prefer to live in a life-affirming world where no one is traumatized by birth practices and all people are blessed with a peaceful beginning; with wise parents, kind teachers and a safe society; in a world filled with respect for life, joy, love.
