President Trump, I am behind you 100% on the solution of hardening the schools as targets.
Several suggestions: Remind those in Congress who are against protecting our children that they go to work every day in a very hardened building. Also, if the congressmen last year at the Alexandria ball park had not had someone to shoot back, they would all be dead now.
Second, contact the Israelis to send us consultants.
Having armed people in the schools is the least problematical solution between gun control and mental health.
Problems with mental health solutions: I have more than 55 years in the mental health field, including as a therapist, a Psychology professor, and advocate for the mentally ill at the federal, state, and local levels. Yet I am not ready to be responsible for identifying the dangerous people. At the same time blanket definition of mental illness includes one out of five Americans who have a diagnosis of mental illness and most of whom are in the computer health records. Finally, psychologists tend to be on the left politically.
Problems with threatening to take guns: It is the left who want to take our guns. It is no conspiracy theory therefore, to believe those on the left who want a strong centralized government and then globalism and eventually one world government, pose a real danger
