Allow me to tell you a tale.

On the way to the scene of a suicide, Dr Alan Drunkmund passed someone hanging from a tree. He mumbled "tragic" under his breath.

He then passed under a bridge, noticing a corpse on the ground. "How unfortunate", he shook his head, "A high fall"
Dr Drunkmund continued on his journey. His legs were getting sore, so he decided to borrow a car from his neighbour. Upon opening the garage, he noticed his neighbour dead in the car. Carbon monoxide poisoning.

"Won't be needing this anymore", he took the car and drove on.
During his drive to the scene of the shooting suicide, he noticed a body laying on train tracks. "Mental health needs better funding", he grimaced.

Dr Drunkmund finally arrived at his destination. Upon seeing the body of the shooting suicide victim, he shook his head in regret.

My mother taught us to ward off the Evil Eye by spitting. 💦

According to this #Syriac #manuscript (Or 6673) there are more hygienic ways of eliminating it, and a host of other ailments, misfortunes and generic evils. Let’s see what they are!

(Props to the Evangelists)

Let’s cut the gentle humour for... one tweet. This #manuscript was copied at the end of the 19th century by Church of the East believers in northern #Iraq. It’s part of a long tradition of prayer and medicine in the region, and it relies on a number of different belief systems.
Ok, first up is fear. St. George was not afraid when he slew the #dragon (also identified here as a Great #Monster), so why should you be? Offer him a prayer to allay distress and fears.

If you have lots of #guns, ammo, attachments, & all of a sudden you live in a state where its "illegal" to own something, dont say "#IWillNotComply" then die as a martyr. it will be you vs 50 heavily armed, highly trained men, with tear gas, dogs, body armor & more. #virginia
When i say be smart, i mean, BE SMART. Not a moron by thinking you are actually going to "win" by resisting. Your violation of your rights will NOT bring in a backup of patriots in time from all around the state or country. Patriots will be patient & get the facts 1st.
This means, they will wait until the next day to find out that you were wrongfully arrested, arrested due to a new law thats #unconstitutional, or you were killed in a shootout & made to look like the bad guy, or a "domestic terrorist." If you are in a position, you vs 50 others

2/ to the DemLEFT on the floor of the House in fighting back at the absurd & very very dangerous weaponization of a political tool to repeatedly overthrow any Presidential election by the losing pol. party! Surely,U MUST know,&should be saying it more in interviews&pressers like

I am a Colombian physician who served in guerrilla territory in the early 90s at the peak of the drug wars in my country. I had to perform autopsies on countless human bodies destroyed by military-style riffles. I still have nightmares.

I learn to distinguish the sound made by each of the guns used by the Colombian army and the guerrilla fighters while I tried to sleep at night using my bed as a barricade, because the windows of my bedroom were dangerously low.

Discussion Guidelines for #RedFlagLaws
#USBillOfRights cannot be comprised any more
#2A protects all other #GodGivenRights

@realDonaldTrump @LindseyGrahamSC @senatemajldr @dbongino The #FoundingFathers meaning of #2A was not for hunting, it was meant to repel a #LandInvasion or put down our own corrupt #USGovt if it starts taking our #USBillOfRights away.
We are meant to have arms to match our U.S. standing Police & Army so they can't overrule the #People.
@realDonaldTrump @LindseyGrahamSC @senatemajldr @dbongino The #USGovt should #Fear it's #People so that the #USBillOfRights / #USConstitution is protected from #Corrupt Power-Hungry #Politicians so they don't become #Tyrants.
#2A is by design, the ultimate checkmate on #TyrannicalGovt.

Exclusive: Biden expresses skepticism of Democrats' leftward tilt and AOC's mass appeal

cnn.com/2019/07/05/pol…
#Biden seems not to have even read the demographics from 2016 or the issues voters prioritized in 2018 (climate, healthcare, immigration, guns). He resorts to referring to AOC as "bright" but "not representative," which is how he famously referred to Obama in 2007.
2/
#Biden also says he wasn't prepared for #KamalaHarris to come after him because she knows him & knew his late son, Beau. (He needs to stop using Beau for sympathy points. He should reference his living son, Hunter, who gave a heart-wrenching interview about his addiction.)

First, my heart and prayers go out to the most recent victims of this madness that’s happening at our work places and schools.
The ironic part about all of this to me is back when I lived a street life and had to “hustle and grind” to make groceries,
I’d leave the house wondering if this would be the last time I’d see my mom and grandma, knowing that the odds of me making it back home alive were against me. #VirginiaBeachShooting #virginiabeach #VirginiaBeachStrong #GunControlNow #GUNviolence
They would all tell me that if I wanted to beat the odds and skew the stats I’d have to go back to school, get a job, and square up. It seemed I was constantly being told that I was going to lose my life out there in them streets. Well, guess what? #VirginiaBeachShooting

PERSONAL THREAD: ON #PTSD AND #GUNS

We've seen a number of suicides among survivors of school shootings. Tragedy compounding tragedy. And I wanted to talk about one of the least covered reverberations of #gunviolence: the pain, fear, and anguish that last long past the shooting.
From the age of ten into my late teens, I lived in (or near) an active war zone in Lebanon. That was 4 decades ago. To this day, I wake up with severe night frights, reliving gun battles and experiencing a visceral fear that can't be expressed in words.
Over the years, the intense emotions have subsided, but knowing how scary PTSD can be, I just want to express compassion for those who are going through it, particularly the children and families who have survived mass shootings.

Statistically, mentally ill people are more likely to be victims of violence than commit violence. To reduce gun violence, we must address availability of #guns & complex cultural issues. We can't focus on the molehill when the mountain's right there. ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/P…
We also unfairly overburden psychiatric professionals by making them responsible & accountable for preventing gun crime. Gun violence still disproportionately harms communities of color, & our failure to invest in social and physical infrastructure perpetuates the cycle.
Our most common psychiatric diagnoses (depressive, anxiety, & attention-deficit disordres) have no correlation w/violence. While I agree w/having trained mental health professionals in schools, that won't stop gun violence. We must change our culture. #NeverAgain #GunReformNow

Today, we're launching the RAND Gun Policy in America initiative, which provides information on what scientific research can tell us about the effects of gun laws. [thread] r.rand.org/6xbc
Our goal is to establish a shared set of facts that will improve public discussions and support the development of fair and effective gun policies.

There is *a lot* to explore in the link above. This thread provides an overview.
To know whether a gun policy is fair and effective, we need to determine how it affects outcomes, such as:

📍injuries & deaths
📍mass shootings
📍defensive gun use
📍hunting participation

So what does the evidence show?
