When a car crash occurs, do we blame the car or the driver? When we gain a pound, do we blame the fork or ourselves? When a gun is shot, and someone is killed, do we blame the gun, or the shooter? Cain killed Abel with a rock. So do we have a rock problem? No. We do not have a car problem, a fork problem, rock problem, or a gun problem. We have a heart problem.

In the aftermath of the officer involved shooting of Alton Sterling, some “citizens” have taken the matter into their own hands. Sunday morning three Baton Rouge Officers were brutally shot and killed while responding to a suspicious call. Half of our country began grieving, and the liberal half began strategically planning how to blame the guns. However, East Baton Rouge Sheriff Gautreaux took to the public to state that we are not struggling with gun issues, but rather an issue of the heart.

WAFB tweeted a statement from Sheriff Gautreaux, which said: “This is not so much about gun control as it is about what’s in men’s hearts.” The Guardian reports that this was just a portion of a larger statement, in which he said:

With God’s help, we will get through this.

To me this is not so much about gun control as it is about what’s in men’s hearts. And until we come together as a nation, as a people, to heal as a people. If we don’t do that and this madness continues, we will surely perish as a people.


He could not have been more spot on. A house divided against itself, cannot stand. Therefore, as long as we are drilling through the floor and ripping out the plumbing, our country’s foundation will continue to crumble. As long as men’s hearts bear hatred, then they cannot bear fruit.


Thankfully, we still have people like Sheriff Gautreaux in positions of authority, who see the real problem. In light of the liberal push for gun control, he sees that our 2nd amendment does not need to pay the debt of a person who acts upon the ugly in their heart.

    All part of this Muslim-Marxist jihadist’s plan to divide and conquer and to disarm “US” to make it that much easier! The lying and treacherous reprobate just broke bread with his Muslim brethren in the “Outhouse” and yet the AMERIKAN SHEEPLE but more importantly the so-called conservative pun(k}its and the (opposition?) party refuse to acknowledge the obvious truth – they will of wished that they had when it is too late which is very near!

    “In the last days, because iniquity shall abound, the love ov many shall wax cold.”
    Yes, this is Bible. And yes, it indicates that we are NOT going to get through this in a worldly sense.
    II Chronicles 7:14. If you belong to Jesus Christ, you cannot lose. If you don’t, you can’t win.

      You hit the nail right on the head! This is the very basis of today’s problems around the world. I have trouble thinking of the future like I did fifty years ago.
      I, like most folks did then, knew it was possible it would come to this but did not stay aware of the vastness of the decline in peoples morals and loss of faith in God.
      God gives those who are allowed to age to gain His Wisdom if the heart is right.
      I read that there are many who are “UN-SAVEABLE” because God has turned them over to a reprobate mind! This is what we are seeing in people who are making the headlines today.
      The Sheriff in Baton Rouge is to be commended for speaking out on the real problem.

    Kind of been the theme since I’ve never been proud of my country.
