Suicide And Guns

Like the newly ordained Socialist candidate Ocasio, Shannon Watts who created, Moms Demand Action/Everytown For Gun Safety, 2014 budget – $40,773,276! – which, despite it’s 501©(3) nonpolitical status with the IRS is actively lobbying against Trump, and spending upwards of $5 million annually on political campaigns…  has become the ‘Poster Face’ behind Gun Control.  

Funded by, the brainiac child, Michael Bloomberg, other notable funders include – Schwab and the George Lucas Family Foundation.

Watts was previously active in Emerge America, an organization founded by Andrew Dew Steele whose previous background was with the Soros organization, Human Rights Watch.  

Everytown’s website lists bullet point ‘facts’, that are simply bullet point ‘fiction’:

1)   One monumental claim is that 2/3rds of gun deaths in the US are suicides.  While suicides overwhelming account for a high percentage of gun deaths, the rate is 50%.

2)   The other claim is that states with high gun ownership have the highest rates of gun suicide rates.  But the statistics used to rank states by gun ownership was dated – 2002.

Not so.  Alaska ranks number one for overall suicides. According to their Department of Human Services 90% of people who die by suicide have depression, substance abuse disorder or a mental disorder.   The second highest suicide rate in the US in 2016 was among American Indians and Alaska Natives.

Wyoming is considered another high risk state.  While the vast majority of the suicides occur in the elderly – 80+, schools have analyzed data with regard to high school students and found that the causal factors are: lack of social skills, traumatic home life, lack of religion, lack of moral code, with the second highest rate found among American Indians and Alaska natives living in Wyoming.

Nevada is at high risk, but it also has the dubious honor of the highest rate among all states for the elderly at 34 per 100,000 population.   DC has the lowest rate at 1.5 per 100,000.   But the homicide rate by gun violence is up by 37% between 2017 and 2018.   As a result, police are cracking down on ‘illegal ownership of guns’. Interestingly, during Obama’s tenure, 2009 to 2017, gun laws were routinely relaxed in DC.

In other words, if a link was to be generated for the three states with the highest suicide rates, veterans and certainly the elderly are worth noting, but the overwhelming statistic points to the conditions of the Native Americans and Alaskan Natives.  In this regard, Australia’s Aboriginals are on equal footing.

According to Mz. Watts 96 people commit suicide every day.   Factually, roughly 44,000 people commit suicide – over 365 days that would account for 120 per day.   Of the 120, 22 are military veterans – 18%, the elderly account for another 14% roughly.

According to the CDC, physical/health problems are seemingly one of the primary causes of suicide, secondary to mental health issues.

And while Mz. Watts would have us believe that more laws to regulate legal gun ownership will have an effect on cities like Chicago and St Louis, where homicide rates continue to inflate unabated, again has about as much logic as our fun friend Ocasio-Cortez when discussing economics.  Especially given that gangs and illegal gun ownership are the dominant causal factor.

Ocasio grew up in a house in Yorktown Heights, considered predominantly white – 90.5%, and with a median income of $137,000 per family.  She attended Yorktown High School with a total enrollment of about 1200. Started Brook Avenue Press in 2012, which has no reported income, no reported agent, and no known filings, has a Twitter account with 1 Tweet that is closed to the public, and endorses Planned Parenthood, Moveon.org, Black Lives Matter, Democracy for America, whose endorsements include Al Franken, Obama, Sanders, Lizzy Warren, and a host of Soros bids.

What becomes evident in the Soros Files is his penchant for molding and forming out of a base of clay – female politicians with ethnic backgrounds, although Lizzy’s absurd Native American miserable failure has become quite a joke.

Of course, this is only the tipping point, as Soros bidding in conjunction with The Muslim Brotherhood have fought hard to enlist 100 Muslim candidates for US office this year. For example:  “Amira Dajani, a GOPcandidate running for Florida attorney general under the name “Amy Fox,” was recently discovered to be part of a family with deep ties to the PLO, a terrorist group pledged to destroy Israel.”

The Swamp has no political affiliation.  Do not be fooled.

If in fact, we want to curtail suicides, we want to curtail homicides – then the logical core contributors need to be staunchly addressed, but lives are meaningless when an “Agenda” is at stake.   Confiscating guns is an Agenda.   Putting people into office that are basically ignorant – is an Agenda, they are easily puppeted.   Ocasio, Watts, Harris, Warren, even Hillary were blank canvas’s and all the paint was conscripted by Soros and the Rothschild Cabal for the singular purpose of control.  

The Resiliency of The Love of A Child

The love a child has for a parent is so amazingly resilient; it is a beacon of forgiveness. I have witnessed so many relationships completely torn and yet, sometimes with the slightest of changes, no matter the age, the entire relationship can be refused, reignited, as though the past never happened. It should be a message to us all that we learn from our children, despite all our worldly wisdom. It could serve our world and our society well.

A child is willing to lift the veil on a drop of kindness. The power the parent wields is immense, it has the ability to create a wondrous life filled with compassion, love, giving, and it has the power to fill a wondrous life with bitterness, desolation and hate.

We are the creators of our children’s psyche. They are our responsibility – good, bad or indifferent. To reject that responsibility, is to reject yourself. A child’s psyche is directly correlated to family first – friends and society – second. If a family chooses to have their child raised by society, that is the family choice and their responsibility. I believe in a mother raising her child…(ren).

If a child cries for help, then it is first to the parents to come to the plate. No one else. Friends should be second. The warmth that a family can embrace is beyond anything else. It is unbounded.

I speak because I experience.

Whether it is politically correct or not doesn’t matter when it becomes – personal. The power that a father has with his boys is absolute. The power a mother has with her daughters is absolute. This does not negate the power of mothers and sons and daughters and fathers, it simply is a truism. It is an ingrained genetic. It is the natural course as it should be.

I want to be father and mother to my sons, but I can’t. I can only be what I am, even in the age of feminism, it is the natural way of life. And so I cry for what I cannot be.

So many miracles I’ve learned from my children, I cannot convey. But a powerful one just slapped me in the face, and as a parent, a mom, I have to be a voice.

Our kids, like us, are bound to screw up. Such is life. But if we don’t remember our own failings, we can tend to be too harsh on theirs. It is the Biblical ‘log in thine eye’ syndrome that we sometimes fail to observe when it is closest to us – our family. It is much easier when pointing an arthritic finger at someone we don’t even know.   But when it comes to family, the potential for a reverberation is too scary and thus sometimes we shy away.

I have always harped on the notion that we must travel 3000+ miles away to help and evangelize the poor, when the poor are a ten minute drive down the road. And sometimes, the poor are family.

If my son falls, I take it personally. In my opinion, it is my responsibility and reflects on what I have taught him.   In my opinion, that is the role of a parent. It isn’t easy. But then, we, each of us, made this choice, and must now accept the consequences. And sometimes, those consequences don’t go according to plan, or wish, and we can NOT drop the ball.

And so I say, with all sincerity, to all my boys, I am so sorry for all the things I have done that were wrong, self absorbed, and without heart that may have contributed or led to your own heart-aches. Please forgive me and please, learn from my mistakes, as I did from my mother ( my dad was perfect!!!).

I love you from the depths of my heart.  Find sustenance in that – please…
