They are ignorant of the meaning of “cause and effect.” When a man pulls a trigger, and the bullet leaves the gun, that is cause and effect.

But they, politicians and pundits, are not asking what makes that person pull the trigger? The answer is what the Bible says is a “seared mind.” 1 Timothy 4:1-2 (NIV) gives an explanation: "1 The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. 2 Such
teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron.”

It’s possible we’ve already come to the point where God is letting the U.S. A. decay with the present culture and Godless-mess. We may just be withering away. Yet, the churches can still have an impact. Here's an answer. Romans 12: 2a (NIV) says “ Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” That’s what will positively change the mind of a shooter; not what I heard when Beto O’Rourke declared, “Hell, yes, we will take your guns.”

The church does need to be in the marketplace, outside the four walls of the church, telling what God says in the answer to these shootings. A positive change will be due to the church getting outside of the four walls of the church and into the marketplace.
