Biblical Solutions for Mass Shootings

Chelsea and I continue and conclude our discussion of the tragic mass school shooting at the Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas.

As politicians clamor for more gun control, we look at Salvador Ramos' family situation.

Were warning signs ignored that led to this attack?

Could Ramos' poor family situation have been at the root of his problems?

We believe the evidence shows that Biblical parenthood is the true solution for preventing mass shootings.
