Which of the following reasons are the truth and missing motives not being reported for the record number of shootings in 2020 in the USA?”

The Chicago Tribune, AP, article titled: US Shootings, killings spike in Covid-19 era, reported this ending statement:

“This year has been a year like no other. I don’t think you can point to any one ‘why.’”

The Purpose of This Post

Is to relate an ancient proverb and a quote as clues to my opinion is the most prevalent reason of to solve the conundrum?

King Solomon

“How long will you who are simple love your simple ways? How long will mockers delight in mockery and fools hate knowledge? (Proverb 1:22)


“There are only two outcomes of substance use disorder. Either you get better or you die.”

What’s My Point?

If you read the article and associate to the proverb and quote clues you might surmise that simple people using drugs are the most probable main motive for the increase.

You might also surmise the loss of jobs, home confinement government mandates, and guns are also clues.

My point is that USA history has had a lot more stressful times and pandemics in past history and guns, but that is not the reason for the higher shootings in 2020.

In My Opinion

The main reason is the “simple” minded politicians who supported legalization of recreational marijuana but refuse to support one school choice or school vouchers.

For example, passing the law is contributing to more uses of marijuana even though medical science has proven a significant number of users will bridge to hard more addictive drugs.

To add to the simple mindless, the government is now profiting from the sale of recreational marijuana instead of the criminal gangs who sold it in the streets illegally. This is creating more gang violence for competitions of sales territories of black-market marijuana and hard drugs.

When you add these reasons to the pandemic loss of jobs in the poor poverty urban areas populations. Populations who never experienced going to a religious school to be taught in depth not to kill for moral reasons.

In my opinion, if the police would either know or make public the motives of shootings this e conundrum would not be a conundrum. Instead it would be the truth of reasons why shootings and violence has increased in 2020.

Frankly, the police may not know the motives because in urban areas if a witness comes forward, the gangs will punish and even kill them for being a witness.

And who knows if the politicians won’t let the police reveal the motives for some other simple minded coverup reasoning?

You Decide

Is there a reason all you read and hear in the news is the criminal act being reported and never the motives?

Do you believe that as more and more recreational marijuana users increase in time, the gangs will stop profiting from the sale of lower cost black market marijuana and hard drugs as the politicians predicted when they promoted the referendums to legalize recreational marijuana?

Who in your opinion had a simple mind to promote a “red carpet” to more use of drugs in the USA will reduce violence to a population that has never been introduced to religious in-depth instruction, living in single family households, and living in high crime poverty areas suffering from loss of jobs because of birth and the pandemic? And their children being influenced by simple minded politicians lacking the wisdom to understand the motives for the increase violence not only in 2020 but in the future of the USA as more and more users bridge into more potent drug addiction.?

Would it have been wiser to have just fined recreational marijuana users smoking in public instead of legalizing to increase drug use in the USA?
