Regarding tragedy in Connecticut, I would like to offer a temporary fix for schools, and engage in a discussion of what is happening in our society. The quick school fix would involve a modest cost: The school system could buy a door jam like the ones sold at hardware stores that prop against the door handle and floor. Someone would have to shoot out the entire door to open it. Every teacher could reach for the prop at the first sign of necessity for a lockdown; it could save lives.
In the meantime, I'm with the president. Things cannot remain the same. But the problem is not just guns or mental illness. It goes to the question of what is destroying children's brains?
With a statistic of 1 in 88 children with autism, it is time medicine recognized that damage done by vaccine adjuvants is destroying a generation of children. It is not just the environment or genes. Infants are born with 200-300 chemicals already in their bodies. It is epigenetics, how people react to the environment. It is also basic chemistry: Mercury, aluminum, formaldehyde, and other chemicals are toxic to the brain. And the number of total vaccines and combination vaccines is overwhelming to a child's detox ability.
Drug companies are in business for profit. They don't care that 1 in 88 brains are destroyed. Big pharma and medicine have a disgusting phrase for it: "acceptable loss." One of the few successful autism cases won in court involved two doctors whose brain-damaged daughter was tested and found to have a detoxification problem. This should be the first test an infant gets, instead of a hepatitis vaccine that 98 percent of newborns don't need unless the mother has the disease or is a drug addict.
It is a big problem but a simple equation: Early brain destruction of children who become lifelong consumers of drugs known to cause violence, and concomitant accessibility to rapid-fire weapons. A lot of things must change, including medicine and responsible regulation of guns. (No, I am not saying revoke the Second Amendment. Hunters, have your guns. But you don't need a rapid-fire assault rifle, do you?)
