Rosalind has listed some precious information that One America for all Americans can put into immediate actions. NRA is currently donating to Trump's 2020 campaign. One America lets work together to prevent potential mass killing and or any KILLING! NRA owns this administration. Collectivity we can work together.
Please, don't be embarrassed or ashamed to ask the questions to an individual and your child. Get feedback from the community, friends, family, neighbors, and anyone in contact with the individual that is displaying signs and symptoms of out of control and abnormal behavior. Please don't be embarrassed or ashamed to get others involved to help you notice the potential missed signs and symptoms. Because when it's your loved one. The eyes, ears, and mind are frozen by the heart when it's your son. The Art of Denial is dangerous.
A SICK UNTREATED, AND OVERTREATMENT BRAIN can be a walking Timebomb...
1. Do we know When the next MASS KILLING will be?
2. Do we know WHERE the next MASS KILLING will happen?
3. Do we know WHO will be the MASS KILLER's target market? Is it your children, family members, a school, church, malls, theaters, or concert? Or is it YOU?
4. What do we know? According to scholarly research case studies there are some shared tendencies that are distinctive signs and symptoms that the past mass murderers have in common.
5. If you detect any signs and symptoms of bizarre, uncontrollable narcissistic behavior, acute paranoia, delusional that can contribute to an unusual erotic passion to acquire many Military Grade Style Weapons of Mass Extinction. Acquiring an enormous amount ammunition, stockpiling (come on, really? Was it missed?). An increased interest to use the internet,joining extreme chat groups, and hiding the sites. Displaying clear signs of erotic impulsive violence, an outburst of irritability, combative mood fluctuations. Acts of unruly and persistent hostility and cruelty toward others. Also in most instances, this human being is being labeled "different", "crazy", "sick", "psycho", "retard", "stupid", "queer", "loner", "weird", and "unusual" and so forth by their peers.
6. Other major shared tendencies are constant school bullying (years of brutal bullying and beat up by their peers), social isolation with his only best companion, known as the internet. You may see violent irritability, erratic rage of irate, restlessness, and racial hostility. Repeatedly talking about seeking retribution, acquisitions of several Weapons of Mass Extinction and targeting shooting. Let's work to avoid any potential explosive homicidal acts.
7. WAKE UP, WAKE UP! The above mentioned behaviors are not normal, at all. If this is going on, please take it very serious and urgent, and NEVER say, "NOT MY Child". Take ALL their firearms (and other weapons retained by others) and store them all out of that individual's living environment (miles away from that individual), and secure all the weapons in a confidential location (off-site) or have your local Police (depending on the State) confiscate the weapons. This will further prevent self-inflicted gunshot.
8. If that individual seeks to obtain the firearms from the so-called high tech "break in proof" weapon SAFE that you think should provide 100% "break in proof" measures. Think again, long and painful. One murder had removed the weapons from his mother's gun safe and then shot her in the head. Then, went to Sandy Hook Elementary School and killed 20 children and 6 adults with a Military-Grade Style Weapons of Mass Extinction.
9. Get family members engaged and have family members to help you destroy the Military Grade-style Weapons of Mass Extinction. Better yet, do all you can to stop that individual from obtaining any weapons. Let us be real, why would you want your loved ones who are experiencing the list of above behaviors to have any weapons? Really, now come on think about this...because that individual really thinks they're okay and its everybody else with the problems...a sick brain with chemical imbalance and guns are a receipt for a high risk of harm to self or others. If you love them, than get them some help. Like right, now, please.
10. Get your Court system involved to obtain a Court Order to have the weapons confiscated from that individual.
11. Only a Court Ordered Individualized Multidisciplinary Team and a Board-Certified Psychiatrist (s) directly treating that individual will make suggestions to the Courts so the Judge could declare if the individual in question is and/or isn't competent to acquire and or employ any kind of weapons. The Court System should be able to help you with this...
12. Why does an individual that is actively experiencing the above behaviors need a Military GradeStyle Weapons of Mass Destruction or guns to feel safe and Why? Find out why the individual desires to have a Military Grade-style Weapon of Mass Destruction...Would you want to know? And know what is in YOUR home, it's your home after all...
13. Do you really think that your SON, if he was displaying the above behaviors, will not use his Military Grade Style Weapons of Mass Destruction to kill you and or family members? Do not say no so fast...
14. Is your son capable of committing a mass shooting if he had the above mental behaviors and had control of many mentioned weapons? When a fragile mind has gone into an empty, distant, lifeless, dark, empathy-less, numbing to accept any form of life. Guess what, your SON has no appreciation for your life, too... Just pray that you are not around when the killer's brain clock stops working...
15. Do you know someone or a loved one that requires help and fits the profile parallels the past MASS KILLERS? The above list of opinions doesn't in anyway means the MASS KILLINGS are committed by people with severe psychiatric illnesses. It is a fact, that mass killings are conducted by White Males with known and unknown mental health issues...
16. Research case studies have indicated brutal Bullying nightmares starts during childhood and adolescence and follows the child throughout their high school years and into adulthood. This is not not a lifestyle anyone should have to live. Scholarly research studies shows that the child's brain will get sick and mental illness starts. This type of mental illness, I call it community-acquired (homegrown) mental illness and behavior that can lead to potential mass murders. Research studies have shown that only 1% of mass killings are done by individuals with serious mental illness.
17. Mental illness can come and go...an individual can have an episode of depression secondary to a death of a person's close to you, a divorce, job loss etc . Some facts, people with mental illnesses are no more likely to be violent than those without a mental health disorder. In fact, those with mental illness are 10 times more likely to be the victims of violent crime (American Psychiatric Association).
18. "Not only does bullying impact mental health, but it affects physical health, grades and future career prospects. People are at their happiest when they are free to be their true authentic selves and are fully accepted within their community; regardless of race, gender, sexuality, disability or any other unique characteristic."(ditchthelabel.org/united)
19. It's a known fact that the utilization and the enforcement of common sense practices, it's possible these common-sense practices can stop and decrease mass shootings. And to get medical treatment for that individual could prevent extreme rage and/or homicidal behavior. There are no easy fixes to this comprehensive complex problems but we can do basic common sense practices and measures to address the issues surroundings mass shooting/homicidal behavior.
20. The unintended consequences will have a chilling effect that is unimaginable. Guess what, it's no longer unimaginable what can happen if nothing is done...we know that the impact is imaginable of the potential consequences of the profile of mass murders have been researched and extensive studied done by worldwide Academic and Medical Scholars have published those research reports (and more) to help us to be able to help ourselves to know what the signs and symptoms are.
21. What we do know is an untreated and underdiagnosed sick chemical imbalance brain, body, mind, soul and spiritual being of extensive studied mass murders can take only 2 to 5 minutes to rip an entire community, state, and country into more denial of the facts that are known causes, effects and outcomes of shared tendencies of past mass murders' criminal profiles that have committed these brutal murders.
22. So, we know based upon the research case studied that an individual that we know, right now, is experiencing extremely disturbing raging behavior, in real-time, and many of the shared tendencies of the known past mass murders. Ask yourself will this individual commit such crime based upon the picture you see? Ask yourself, does this individual own firearms? There was NOTHING NORMAL at all about the real-time extremely active prolonged abnormal behavior displayed, in plain sight, by the young white male who raged into Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and brutally murdered 17 of the community's Angels, America's Angels, was normal. Being in a state of denial can potential cause negative outcomes...Getting that individual immediately medical attention and the removal of the weapons is not a crime...because you can prevent and/or stop the next mass murder. And most of all, your actions could change that individual's life, too. Right now, the Trump administration's Gun Control laws are temporarily owned by the NRA.
Trump SOLD our children safety for $31,000,000. I used the word temporarily because when One America vote for Rosalind F. Greene for the Presidency of the United States of America in 2020 and repeal the corrupt elected officials, America takes control of its Gun Control Law. Because Rosalind F. Greene is NOT FOR SALE and America is NOT FOR SALE, and OUR CHILDREN ARE PRICELESS...
Let me share a personal story
If I could do one job, right now, I would love to have the address of an individual that experienced the same tendencies as the individual that I had discussed in the number 1-22. I would knot on his door, and when he opened the door, I would kindly introduce myself to him with a friendly, gentle and contagious smile. I would tell John, that I was sent to your home by an Angel to present to you my 'Friendship Hug of Love.' I would put my arms around John Doe, hold him tight, and give him a complete 'Friendship Hug Of Love' with an energized healing touch with my hands.
After, the fulfillment of my 'Friendship Hug Of Love', I will look into his eyes with calmness, and inform John Doe that One America is profoundly apologetic for the immensely long and terrible nightmares that he has suffered. I would politely express to John Doe, that horror is over and we are lifetime friends.
Now, I want to encourage One America for all the American people to side with me in the 'Friendship Hug Of Love' movement so we can salvage some and all those future mass killer incubators. The 'Friendship Hug Of Love' can spread over the entire USA because a sick brain has NO certain specific community. However, what we do recognize is that the mass killer will most likely fit the profile of a white male. One America lets go out and identify those men that may be living in a world of isolation and showing noticeable signs and symptoms of mental instability. They are in our communities asking for help buy acting out but doesn't know how to ask and or get because their brain's chemistry is out of balance. The longer the abnormal behavior goes without the BEST QUALITY MEDICAL TREATMENT. One America for all American people, it's time to start, right now. Find as many, John Doe you can.
Because they are waiting for us to seek them out and save them, let's not become so irrational or deaf to avoid getting involved in the problem, as we say, it's, "their business," not "my business." Say what? It's your business because we don't want that business in our community, target shooting up our communities. If you have a loved one that you perceive something is not all right, get them some help. Somebody needs to Removed ALL their weapons and your weapons. Take him to see, better to have him involuntary admitted as the inpatient to the hospital. His mental instability and threaten to harm self and others should get him some help. Without a medical treatment, his mental health will keep deteriorating and increased chemical imbalance in the brain.
The longer he stays into that brutal nightmare--, the tougher it will jump start him back into quality and productive life. We can't attribute all mental illness and Military Grade Style Weapons of Mass Extinction.
Some individuals are born holding a lousy hand of cards. And may "look different" from their peers. Sadly, the dangerous name labeling begins with their peers. With so many nasty names, more like renaming him, by his peers. Sadly, the individuals are driven to live into an unprotected, no adults support, Bullying style nightmares filled with all forms of abuse. Exposure to repeatedly Bullying style nightmare, in most instances, will turn into his daily hostile environment.
- "Mass shootings by people with serious mental illness represent the most significant relationship between gun violence and mental illness.
- People with serious mental illness should be considered dangerous.
- Gun laws focusing on people with mental illness or with a psychiatric diagnosis can effectively prevent mass shootings. Gun laws focusing on people with mental illness or a psychiatric diagnosis are reasonable, even if they add to the stigma already associated with mental illness.
- Mass shootings by people with serious mental illness represent less than 1% of all yearly gun-related homicides. In contrast, deaths by suicide using firearms account for the majority of yearly gun-related deaths.
- The overall contribution of people with serious mental illness to violent crimes is only about 3%. When these crimes are examined in detail, an even smaller percentage of them are found to involve firearms."
"Learn about common mental disorders, including symptoms, risk factors, and treatment options. Find answers to your questions written by leading psychiatrists, stories from people living with mental illness and links to additional resources."
"In the realm of mental health conditions, particularly serious mental health conditions, there is no more critical time period than the transitional stage of youth, generally between the ages of 16 and 26. This is a period wherein individuals transition from childhood to adulthood, and during that time, many serious and potentially disabling mental illnesses such as schizophrenia, mood disorders, and addictions develop.
Our delivery system includes several recent developments that are designed to increase access to effective treatment for this age group. Currently, commercial insurance plans are required to allow children up to age 26 to remain covered on their parents’ plans. Recently, Congress created another design element to address the identification of early psychosis and treatment. Through the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, federal money was added to each state’s Mental Health Block Grant to implement first-episode psychosis programs.
These funds have supported the creation of nearly 200 first-episode psychosis programs in the United States, enabling us to at least begin to scratch the surface of the need. Whether these programs can be sustained, however, is yet to be seen. Research shows that the most effective programs involve wraparound services for which commercial insurers and even Medicaid are not required to cover. So while we know these programs are an effective design element of the mental health system, their future is imperiled by a lack of resources. Here again, we see a good design element that is not fully implemented".

WASHINGTON, D.C.– Recent disparaging and inaccurate remarks about mental illness serve only to perpetuate stigma and prohibit honest and open dialogue about an illness (or disorder) that affects one in five people in the nation. Now is the time for us to come together and look for a bipartisan solution that ensures early intervention and access to mental health and substance use treatment rather than taking steps backward. With the scientific advances in prevention, early intervention, treatment, and recovery today, we should be moving forward in caring for people with mental illness and substance abuse.
Despite increased public awareness about mental health issues, accessing treatment remains a challenging task due to multiple factors, such as fragmented delivery and reimbursement systems, regulatory barriers, and workforce shortages. We must also work together to create more public education and awareness regarding persons with mental illness to eliminate the stigma surrounding mental illnesses as we did for persons with HIV/AIDS and cancer in the past.
- Enforce the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act, to ensure that health insurance coverage provides timely access to a full range of mental health and substance use disorder providers and services. These efforts must explicitly remedy/redress the discrimination against mental health providers and their patients that has resulted in the documented shortages of these providers participating in health insurance plans, which is a significant barrier to consumers accessing their coverage.
- Improve access to quality mental health and substance use services by addressing workforce shortages; implementing evidence-based, innovative health care delivery models; and ensuring adequate funding so that communities have available a continuum of outpatient and inpatient services, including treatment options for people in crisis.
- Invest in research to improve early detection and intervention for mental illnesses through translation studies, which will help us turn preclinical and clinical research insights and discoveries into new diagnostics and therapeutics that meaningfully impact patients’ lives.
The American Psychiatric Association stands ready to work with the Administration and Congress to achieve these goals.
Words Matter: Reporting on Mental Health Conditions link to information below
"One in five Americans experiences a mental health disorder in any given year. Many will receive treatment and recover or learn ways to live with their condition. Yet headlines about mental health too often focus on rare, sensational cases that lead to violence or death.
The media plays a critical role in advancing our understanding of mental illness and substance disorders. How you report stories about individuals with mental health challenges can increase awareness and reduce stigma around these conditions.
Following are useful tips for covering mental illness accurately. Remember that the American Psychiatric Association (APA) is available to answer your questions and connect you with experts in this field.
Questions to Ask When Reporting on Mental Health
- Is mental illness relevant to this story? If not, there is no need to mention it.
- What is your source? Don’t rely on hearsay to report that a person has a mental illness. If you are reporting on a specific condition, make sure you are talking to a mental health professional to provide the facts. The APA can connect you with experts to discuss a wide range of mental health and substance use disorders, as well as the medications and techniques used to treat them.
- What is the most accurate language to use? See below for advice about language that is specific and avoids derogatory terms.
Choose Your Words Carefully

- Preferred: She is a person with schizophrenia.
- Not preferred: She is schizophrenic.
Be specific. Mental illness is a general condition. Specific disorders are types of mental illness and should be used whenever possible (see below for a brief list and definitions of common disorders).
- Preferred: He was diagnosed with bipolar disorder
- Not preferred: He was mentally ill
Avoid derogatory language. Terms such as crazy and junkie should not be used. In addition, avoid words like “suffering” or “victim” when discussing those who have mental health challenges.psycho,
- Preferred: She has a mental health illness. She has a substance use disorder.
- Not preferred: She suffers from mental illness. She’s a drug abuser.

Ditch the Label production and research
"For young people, however, our research still consistently finds a strong correlation between those who do not identify as being ‘straight’ and experiences of bullying. Anecdotally, we know that many young people grow up feeling confused and also pressured into conforming to specific labels of sexuality and so we became curious about exploring a new, fluid construct which looks beyond the traditional labels people have previously used to identify themselves"

Cyber Bullying Report: Key Cyber Bullying Statistics
"Formerly known as The Annual Cyberbullying Survey 2013, this report combines the largest bullying-related dataset of over 10,000 young people with key questions surrounding cyberbullying and the use of integrated digital technology within the lives of young people. Upon publication in October 2013, the world’s media responded; turning the findings of the report into global headlines. As a result, our report went on to consult Government, social networks, schools, colleges and other organizations in their counter cyberbullying strategy.

Are You Masc or Fem?
What does it mean to be masculine? What makes somebody feminine? Is it possible to not identify as being either? These are some of the questions uncovered by The Gender Report 2016. Comparing international data, the report explores the ways in which young people are enabled and disabled by gender stereotypes in modern society. The report has a particular emphasis on skills and careers, personality traits and the bullying experienced by those who do not conform to gender roles and norms.

- 44% of respondents (43% male, 45% female, trans 79%) have been treated unfairly for not conforming to gender stereotypes.
- 67% of respondents (66% male, 65% female and 83% trans) believe that they do not conform to the stereotypes attached to their gender.
- 42% of all respondents felt men were better at political and legal jobs than women while only 4% of respondents felt that women were better than men. 54% of respondents believed men and women were equally as good.

Liam Hackett talks to 12,000 teens at Wembley Arena about his experiences of bullying and about the Ditch the Label journey as part of We Day 2016.
and inserts from her interview are in quotes...the brutal Bullying inflicted on her caused Viktoria to quit school at age 14.
“Whenever someone is being mean, it’s mostly their problem; inability to show kindness and understanding is the thing that drives people to unacceptable behavior.”
DTL: "Our research found 63% of those with a physical ‘disability’ are likely to experience extreme bullying and social exclusion. What advice would you give to any of our readers who may be experiencing bullying or feel like they don’t fit in or doubt themselves because of attitudes towards a ‘disability’?
Viktoria: Do not despair, whatever bubble you don’t fit into, there is always another group of people out there who will accept you."
- "DTL: Have you ever experienced bullying? If so could you tell us what happened and how you dealt with the experience?
Viktoria: Absolutely. My teenage years were brutal, especially at school. I left school at 14 and never went back. My salvation was mixing with people who were older than me and getting into more creative circles where self-expression and individuality was valued and not looked down upon. The creative crowd, as well as the creative industry, really helped me to nurture my individuality."
- “I had days when I was around 13 or 14 where I wanted to commit suicide as a result of the hassle I received at school. When I felt like there was no way out, I sat through it and eventually realized that there is always a way out.” Whether it’s removing yourself from standard education and following your curiosity path to self and home education, there isn’t a right or a wrong way. The important thing is to keep yourself safe and do whatever it takes to be in an environment that encourages your ambitions and attributes."
- " DTL: What is next for Viktoria Modesta?
Viktoria: The future is super varied. I’m working on finding the right collaborators for a new record, lots of tech fashion and some awesome futuristic projects around the body and technology. I also have a guest starring role in an awesome sci-fi TV series that’s coming out in the summer. I wanna do everything I know, bigger and better."
- " DTL: What motto do you live by?
Viktoria: Stay curious, don’t be afraid and start again when you don’t succeed."
- "DTL: Is there anything you would like to add?
Viktoria: Only those who believe in magic, find magic."

"Many of the behavioral aspects of the construct are negative and include violence, aggression and a lack of emotional openness. We recognize these as being key societal issues affecting things such as bullying, mental health, and crime rates. This creates negative consequences for those feeling pressured to conform to masculine ideals. Some females suggested that traits, such as leadership and dominance, are seen as positives in males but are still being viewed negatively in females."
Key Features of the Masculinity Construct
"Violent Violence was the most discussed behavior associated with masculinity. 32% of behavior related discussion related to violence. The discussion covered many types of violence; physical aggression, gun violence, domestic violence, and war were some recurring themes This behavior was discussed with respect to toxic masculinity in 24% of the total violent discussion"
"Stoic Crying was seen as a non-masculine behavior. 30% of those talking about behaviors related to masculinity discussed crying. Lack of emotional response and stoicism are also seen as masculine behaviors but mentioned much less frequently than crying specifically.“Manly tears” were, however, cited in 20% of crying-related conversation"
"It is no secret that the constructs of masculinity are causing issues within modern society. Suicide continues to be the biggest killer of young men, and our research shows that males are more likely to bully and less likely to report bullying when they have been subjected to it. It is therefore evident that in its current format, masculinity is causing a lot of problems. This research highlights the pressures that men are under to conform to an ideal set of standards surrounding their appearance, personality, preferences, and behaviors. In order to reduce the rates of bullying and to increase reporting from males, it is therefore crucial that we challenge and redefine the constructs of masculinity.
We are not all the same and any pressures to encourage conformity should be challenged. The constructs of gender continue to create issues, not only for men but for women too. Women still do not have equal representation within traditionally male-dominated industries; such as within politics, corporations, and sports. Women who are notable within such industries are often reported to be subjected to misogynistic language online - often reducing them to sexual objects. This research shows that women are, contrary to popular belief, slightly more likely to use misogynistic language than men. We must not only challenge how men view and treat women, but also how women view and treat one another."

“I see nasty comments on Instagram, Twitter, and Youtube. Some are directed at me, some at my viewers, and it’s heartbreaking”
"Growing up I was lucky enough to not have the Internet. Well, I had dial-up, but it wasn’t the same as it is now."
"I literally couldn’t be cyberbullied, unless it was from a stranger in a chat room. But that never happened because I was always “Tiffany from Malibu”. And who could make fun of a “Tiffany from Malibu”? She’s ‘perfect’. I did, however, have the pleasure of being made fun of in real life; I was called chubby, and hairy armed. I got laughed at for not being able to read the time without a struggle. I was made fun of for my hairstyle – which, I’ll give them, was pretty bad. I don’t know why my mom let me out of the house with hair so intensely slicked back, it looked like I had a professional floor waxer work on me. But, these things were all said to my face. Or behind my back. Or on a note that got passed behind my back and then in front of my face. I can only imagine the level of hell I would have been in, had cyberbullying been a thing back then. Surely my hairstyle would have been a viral meme that was “sob and eat a pint of ice cream” worthy.'
"I am, however, aware of the amount of cyberbullying that goes on every day… hour… minute. I see nasty comments on Instagram, Twitter, and Youtube. Some are directed at me, some at my viewers, and it’s heartbreaking. A year ago I had a very public breakup. We were both YouTubers and both very open about our lives. So, we had to eventually explain to our viewers that we had decided to go our separate ways. Now, any break up is hard, but with the added bonus of the public and their opinions, this break up was BRUTAL."
“I see nasty comments on Instagram, Twitter, and Youtube. Some are directed at me, some at my viewers, and it’s heartbreaking”
"Between the two of us, it wasn’t so bad. Sure it hurt, but we were supportive of each other and our decision. We parted with love and kindness. And, our friendship remains intact. But on the Internet, it was a different story. Yes, there were tons of wonderful people who supported us and showered us with positive vibes. But, there were also a handful of people who were beyond unkind to me and loaded my social media with brutal comments and terrifying thoughts. I guess, now that I reflect, this was cyberbullying.
“Well, there goes her YouTube career”. “She’s nothing without him”. And, on and on. My knee-jerk reaction was to believe them. All my years of working hard to build my channel and my career, all that confidence, out the window with one nasty comment. Panic, sadness, anger, all those emotions flooded me as I scrolled through these comments. And the more I read, the more insecure I became. I believed them. I believed their words. I became sadder than I already was. It was a very dark time."
“There were also a handful of people who were beyond unkind to me and loaded my social media with brutal comments and terrifying thoughts”
"But, put your tissues away, it gets better. I reached out to my friends. The people who know me best. Who has watched me grow and create? Who make me laugh and remind me to have fun. I reached out to my family, who support me no matter what, and always have a joke to make things better. I reached out to a therapist, who helped me sort out my feelings and set goals for my future.
"I reached out to my now ex-boyfriend, who reminded me that I was me and I am enough. I reached out to my puppy, who didn’t have much to say, but she licked my face an unhealthy amount. I got back to exercising and

"Now, I realize this is all easier said than done. And as presented, in these few paragraphs, it appears I got through that tough time quickly. That would be incorrect. It took a long while to feel whole again. And I’m not going to pose as some saint who avoids the comment section and never gets upset. I still see things that cut deep. But, I breathe, and I remember they are JUST WORDS. And I imagine the person typing them to be some snotty-nosed weirdo sitting in their underwear with crisps all over their face and hands, and sadness in their hearts. And then, I get hungry. And then, I feel bad for them. And then, I let it go. And then, I put down the phone. And then, I go outside with my friends.
"So, I guess my advice to anyone who is being cyberbullied would be to remember these are JUST WORDS. And you and your magnificent brain are far stronger than words. And if you need help, reach out to the people who love you the most. And if you feel alone, know that I’m out here I’m cheering you on. Put down the phone and the computer, go outside and remind yourself of all the beautiful things around you. And, if all else fails, think of the weirdo, in their underwear, with crisps all over their face and hands and sadness in their heart, and take a moment to send them well wishes. And then, go outside and enjoy your life. Because you deserve it."

- •Pure victims and bully-victims are more likely to carry a weapon in school, supporting the ‘self-protection’ hypothesis.
- •Pure bullies have the same odds of carrying a weapon inside/outside the school, supporting the antisocial personality hypothesis.
- •Given the strong link between school bullying and weapon carrying, effective anti-bullying programs are needed in schools.
- •Other multi-component violence reduction programs may be equally effective in reducing bullying and weapon carrying."

"When adults respond quickly and consistently to bullying behavior they send the message that it is not acceptable. Research shows this can stop bullying behavior over time. Parents, school staff, and other adults in the community can help kids prevent bullying by talking about it, building a safe school environment, and creating a community-wide bullying prevention strategy."https://www.stopbullying.gov/
