Shouldn’t the Gun Control Debate be about Mental Health Issues?
It is also well known that our FBI background checks fail to investigate issues of Mental Health Histories of those applying to buy guns.
In some cases the weapons used in these mass killings were weapons Stolen or Taken from unsuspecting gun owners.
Perhaps some of these individuals were Miss-Diagnosed with ADD or ADD/H early on in their school lives at the age of 5, 6, 7, 8 or 9, and then started on Ritalin or Cylert or some other drug used to make the kids more docile and inactive.
All the kids who started taking these drugs at very early ages, were caused great harm in emotional growth, intellectual growth, psychological growth, physical growth and over the years, these problems grew worse and worse and by the time they reach puberty and adolescence, they are already seriously damaged in every respect, and in most cases, they become behavior problems, and are apt to begin taking Illicit Drug and to Use Alcohol.
The schools have already turned them into Addicts and it was all done for Profits by Pharmaceuticals in Collusion with the American Psychiatric Association that gets to Prescribe these drugs, and by the U.S. Department of Education that Protects and Promotes Incompetent Teachers.
This mostly impacted little boys who made the mistake of entering School at too early an age, and kept on being Natural and Normal 5, 6,7,8, or 9 year olds and kept behaving like a little boy naturally behaves, and when the teachers were not able to make them comply and raise their hand to speak, or spoke out of turn, they were labeled as Problematic. Parents, for the most part, believed the So-Called Experts and go along with it not knowing what they had just done.
Concerning Ritalin and other Drugs Mis-Prescribed to little children, especially to little boys whose emotional maturity lags behind little girls is why you see many more Boys in Special Education Classes for Emotional or Behavior Disorders Classes.
I believe a large percentage of all Attention Deficit Disorders are Miss-Diagnosed, and they are all being done for the Wrong Reasons. Teachers and other Educators are being Intellectually Dishonest when they buy into this Disability Labeling. Teachers supposedly went to college and studied Educational Psychology and Emotional Development and Intellectual Development of Children and the Stages in which they develop. And, if they did study and understand what they studied, they would know that Boys and Girls Develop at different rates. There may be as much as a 2 to 3 year difference in the Emotional and Intellectual Development of a 6 year old boy and a 6 year old girl. The boys lag the girls in emotional and intellectual development. This is how God made them. Girls are fully developed physically, meaning all their organs, etc. are fully developed by age 18 or 19. Boys do not finish growing until around 21 or 22 years of age.
Children should start school at later ages and not earlier ages which the Obama Regime and the U.S. Department of Education are proposing. They do not want to leave any Child Behind that has not been thoroughly Dumbed Down and Brainwashed by a Public School System that is creating our Educational and Societal Problems, and not Improving anything except Sales of Prescription Drugs, more Courts, more Lawyers and more Jails and Institutions to put these kids in when they grow up with a bad Education and a lot of anger.
If you, as an adult, gave drugs to a little kid, you would be charged with child abuse and contributing to delinquency of a minor.
But the school officials and bogus experts are doing it to millions of our kids daily, and it is all sanctioned By the U.S. Government, By Schools, By Pharmaceutical Companies, By U.S. Department of Education, by National Teacher Unions, By the FDA and numerous other government agencies, and of course by parents. A child is a terrible thing to waste, but our public schools are destroying them at an alarming rate as they drug them, disable them, label them, and pigeon-hole them for life.
I challenge the Main Stream Media here and now to Investigate and report on these most important issues as the Gun Control Debate continues to Rage in these United States of America.
That’s my Opinion. What’s yours?
