Chronic Stress ,Newtown,Conn.and Assault Weapons

"No man can think clearly when his fists are clenched."– George Jean Nathan
Did you know that a zebra is not likely to get an ulcer? We are the dominant species on this earth mainly because we can out think all other animals that inhabit earth. Unfortunately, when it comes to stress, thinking becomes our greatest liability. This means that we now have the ability to activate a stress response from just thinking about any threatening stressor. We can also think ourselves into a stress response even when no stressor is present. We can imagine all kinds of threatening stressors and anticipate the coming of a stressor   which causes stress. Day in day out of chronic stress resulting from our modern culture is becoming a major health threat and probably the biggest threat to our mental health physical health as well as life expectancy.
Did you know the worst job for chronic stress is being a caregiver? In one study, family caregivers of Alzheimer’s patients had more  impaired immune system’s ,increased level of infectious diseases, inflammation, depression,  high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, arthritis, obesity, osteoporosis, type 2 diabetes, and muscle atrophy than controls. Parents of children with chronic threatening diseases such as cancer had more impaired immune systems and more infectious diseases than parents of healthy children. A study of caregiver’s spouses with Alzheimer’s disease doubled the risk of heart disease in males caregivers compared to controls. Another study found that being a caregiver for a spouse with Alzheimer’s disease increased dementia risk by six times with men being more vulnerable than women.

Just think if you were a parent or student at the Newtown, Connecticut elementary school? Can you think of the more stressful situation? How much trauma is now associated with this elementary school? How safe would you feel if you were a parent, teacher or young child? It’s going to take a lot of prayer, spiritual guidance, and therapy to make things better. And it’s not clear of the damaging effects and later consequences of future behavior for all who were affected by this tragedy.
Did you notice the number of females killed? The young male killer shot his mother and too many young girls last Friday. The newly installed security system at the school failed too many. It is clear, that too many mentally disturbed and unhealthy males have easy access to automatic assault weapons. The term assault weapon is clear because that’s exactly what they are. They are not for target shooting or personal protection they are for assault. the American College dictionary defines assault “ as an attack; the stage of close combat; unlawful physical attack upon another; an attempt to offer to do violence to another; by holding a stone or club it in a threatening manner.” and why do you want an assault weapon? You were going to do what with an assault weapon? You feel safe with a loaded assault weapon in your hand? You don’t feel safe if you don’t have an assault weapon? If you have an assault weapon, join the military and assault the bad guys. But first, get a psychological evaluation.
