Re: Common sense gun policy reforms for the United States
29 December 2012
It is a human tragedy that what we create to protect ends up killing us or our dear ones leaving behind a scar so deep that only the families who lost their dear ones will carry them for a long time. Assault weapons and assault weapon manufacturers are so powerful that to think of bringing a policy for Gun control makes even a great president at a loss as to how he could go about avoiding such tragedies in future. National Rifle Association president comes out with a statement that it is not gun control but gun trigger that will save lives by employing armed security personnel in schools all over USA. It is the tragedy of democracy for it is a double edged weapon. What is that one can do as an individual citizen- as an ordinary human being like us- devote time for our children; if our children have some inherent flaw in their traits genetic or acquired- take it seriously - take the child for proper counseling and intimate to the family physician about the child with such behavioral abnormality. Let us not forger,
A touch from the mother during infancy, growing up in an environment of joint family, helping to grow with other children in a positive way, restricting the exposure of the child to violent movies or gaining access to assault weapons and constant vigil on the child development are key issues that every parent must look into. Apart from that assault weapons must be kept in a safe and secure place locked securely and away from the hands of adolescents. The Media must downplay these acts of very grave tragic events though done with a view to share the tragedy and newsworthiness of reporting or broadcasting them. Because there are few in the Viewers with such personality disorder who may get activated by viewing such events.
The DNA of every individual is not complex. But it becomes complex by the environemntal factors-call it a variation of epigenetics-as environgenetics.
Parents "give love and affection to your children, be with them when they want you, including breastfeed them, create a bonding that will help the child grow well with balanced emotional feelings." There is no use in finding factors outside of you for what had made Adam the monster he was from a tender infant.
