My senior research project was surrounded around gun casualties and innovating a device in solution to slowing down a shooter in a public building like a school. I spent MONTHS doing EXTENSIVE research with my group on gun casualties in the US let me tell you what I learned.
To the people who make the argument against mental illness, I think it’s incredibly unfair. Most people with mental illnesses are NOT violent.
I challenge those who believe its "another lunatic" to look at countries whom have implemented some form of gun control & for the sake of argument look at the statistics of how many suffer with mental illness in those populations.
(THREAD) Yulya Alferova—ex-wife of Russian oligarch Artem Klyushin and a member of Trump's entourage in Moscow in 2013—is yet another witness who confirms, albeit inadvertently, Trump lied about what happened at the Ritz Moscow. The list of such witnesses is now very, very long.
2/ With new evidence Trump can be successfully blackmailed over sexual exploits—just as the Steele dossier says he's being blackmailed right now by the Kremlin—and with Trump's recent Twitter lie that no one knew he'd run for president until mid-'15, Alferova is back in the news.
3/ Alferova is significant for several reasons, among them tweets she sent to Trump before he announced his candidacy for POTUS. In the first one, she confirms what Trump has long denied but what her ex-boss Emin Agalarov admitted to Forbes: Trump struck a deal in Moscow in 2013.

I have a thing to say about growing up after tragedy. When I was a senior in high school, 7 of my classmates were killed & 24 injured. It was an awful day full of fear, confusion, & pain. Press swarmed. News helicopters hovered overhead all day filming footage of the carnage. 1/
Nothing made sense. Over the days and weeks that followed, we went to vigils, wakes, and funerals. We openly wept in the hallways. People who had never spoken before embraced, clinging to each other. We felt broken. 2/
People said the things that are being said now. “I put him on the bus and sent him to school. He was supposed to be safe.” Classrooms were rearranged so the empty desks weren’t a constant reminder. 3/
2) We'll begin with this post from #Qanon the night of February 12th.
3) Operation Merlin (tech).
Operation Merlin was a CIA op, ostensibly designed to give Iran a flawed blueprint for a nuclear weapon. Q suggests the real intent was to give Iran (and then North Korea) a functional weapon. #Qanon
