Welcome to Huckabee from the Fox News studios in New York City.
Well this week in our show is gonna be a little different of course it has to be in light of the horrific shootings that happened in a -- Colorado.
A senseless cowardly act of indiscriminate violence was the news that we awoke to on Friday morning.
Now -- is usually a place for -- go to a skate reality.
But for the people packed in a movie theater in Aurora.
They confronted the harsh and savage reality of a person.
Who meticulously planned to inflict as much carnage as possible on totally innocent and unsuspecting strangers.
This shooting is impossible to understand except that we live in a world where there is evil.
I work in both talk radio and cable TV news.
I realize -- an event like this results in going nonstop of the story but this is anything new to reporter not.
And speculation drive the coverage because when there's nothing new to tell the options are repeat what we know.
-- bring on people who speculate what happened and why it happened.
We simply don't know why any person would reach deep enough into the forces of darkness to decide to kill innocent people simply watching a movie.
We just don't know.
But because it's so very out of the ordinary.
We turn -- hot spot -- and then we bring into your around the clock.
But here's what I do know.
I know that I won't mention the shooters name on radio are on television as I've got no interest in helping him become a celebrity.
I know that he's a coward he's mentally deranged in his actions were monstrous.
I know I'd rather talk about the victims and the lives they lived and the families that they left grieving then to get attention to a person who doesn't deserve attention.
And who should simply be called the murderer.
I know that having a dozen people murdered in the movie theater gets our attention because thank god it doesn't happen every day.
But one million innocent and help the unborn babies die and their mother's wounds each year by elective abortions.
And we pay scant attention to that.
I know we've lost over 6500 troops in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and we hardly notice the still mounting numbers.
I know there almost twice as many suicides every year in the US is there are murders but while we immediately cry for laws to address mass murder.
When's the last time you heard someone say.
That we need to deal with the mental illnesses that are resulting in suicides.
Especially and most -- -- -- -- military veterans.
I'm not attempting to disparage the attention being given to the Aurora theatre shooting.
We should all pray for the victims their families and friends and offer our help for the physical and emotional recovery the survivors.
But the victim of a murder in a convenience store robbery are -- wife who dies at the hands of a serial abuser.
It's also -- precious life.
We don't have a crime problem our gun problem -- -- a violence problem.
We have is a sin problem.
And since we border got out of our schools and communities the military and public conversations.
You know we really shouldn't act so surprised.
When all hell.
