Oct. 15, 2015, I received an email reply from Rep. Kilmer on  Stop School Shootings

This paragraph stands out

In addition, far more needs to be done TO ADDRESS MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES. Congress should stop its efforts to repeal the nation’s mental health parity law BECAUSE IT SIMPLY MAKES SENSE THAT ILLNESSES ABOVE THE NECK SHOULD BE TREATED THE SAME AS ILLNESSES BELOW THE NECK. More resources must also be provided to adequately treat mental illness and to train and retain mental health professionals.
———————————————————————————

This is my response to Rep. Kilmer

A treatable physical medical disease is not MENTAL ILLNESS

———————————————————
Apr 1, 2015 the Mayo Clinic, has identified the MEDICAL DISEASE.
as hypogonadism, in which the pre-pubertal male body is unable to produce normal amounts of testosterone.

———————————————————
Erectile dysfunction (ED) low testosterone ( LOW T) in all males and pre-pubertal male is a physically observable, testable, treatable and manageable medical disease.

—————————————————————–
TV ADS  50% of all men over 50 men  are suffering some type of erectile dysfunction (ED) low testosterone ( LOW T) and can’t get an erection, they are treated for the medical disease.

————————————————————————-
Imagine what would happen if the (LOW T) and (ED) men were all denied medical treatment, and they were told by the government

THAT (LOW T) and (ED) WAS ALL IN THEIR HEAD?

Hmmm… Using the Kilmer rational that  a PHYSICAL TREATABLE DISEASE below the neck? should be treated the same as an MENTAL ILLNESSES above the neck?

Dear Ms. Hewett,
Thank you for contacting me about preventing GUN violence. I appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts with me.

When my wife Jennifer and I drop our KIDS off at school, we want them to be filled with hope and excitement about the day ahead – never with questions about whether they will be safe. That’s what all parents want.

In the face of a number of tragic shootings, including some in our own region, we know more can and must be done to prevent these tragedies.

Nothing is more important to me than ensuring the safety of our CHILDREN. I am continuing to push Congress to move forward on commonsense legislation that would keep GUNS out of the hands of felons and those legally prohibited to have GUNS It makes sense to improve and expand the background check system because keeping GUNS out of the hands of felons and the mentally ill will have a real impact on reducing GUN violence.

Right now, our federal background check system is not utilized for all sales. While licensed dealers are required to conduct background checks on all of their sales, online intrastate sellers and private sellers are not required to conduct background checks. As a consequence, the current federal system leaves a loophole for folks that would otherwise be denied a GUN through licensed sellers – felons, domestic abusers, and those prohibited due to a dangerous mental illness. As a consequence, GUNS are ending up in the wrong hands. We can’t accept that. Too much is at stake.

One bright spot is that last year the Congress increased resources for our existing background checks system. Despite that, I think there is still more that we can do.

I am proud to be a cosponsor of H.R. 1217, the Public Safety and Second Amendment Rights Protection Act, a bipartisan bill that would require universal background checks — including requiring background checks at GUN shows, on all GUN sales over the internet, and sales through classified advertisements. I believe this legislation is a common sense way to strengthen public safety while protecting the Second Amendment rights of responsible GUN owners.

While there’s more that needs to be done, Congress can and should move quickly and thoughtfully to keep our neighborhoods and schools safe. I’ll continue to urge House Leadership to bring this bill forward.

In addition, far more needs to be done to address mental health issues. Congress should stop its efforts to repeal the nation’s mental health parity law because it simply makes sense that illnesses above the neck should be treated the same as illnesses below the neck. More resources must also be provided to adequately treat mental illness and to train and retain mental health professionals.

Those of us who care about preventing these senseless acts of violence – as parents and as policy makers – are not giving up the fight.

Thank you for your advocacy and for sharing why preventing GUN violence is important to you. I encourage you to continue to share your views with me on this topic or any other issue. It is an honor to serve as your representative.

Sincerely,

Derek Kilmer
Member of Congress

My JUNE 19, 2014 comment on Derek Kilmer’s response to Pills that kill?
CONGRESS HAS FAILED TO CONNECT? INVESTIGATE? AND ACT ON THE
INCREASE IN SCHOOL SHOOTINGS LINKED TO ANTIDEPRESSANT PRESCRIPTION DRUGS
More than 60 school shootings among and more than 4,800 violent attacks have been linked to psychiatric drugs.
While in the wake to the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre most of the debate has centered around gun control, perhaps more of the debate should be focused on the mood altering drugs that people are being given as more than 60 school shootings among and more than 4,800 violent attacks have been linked to PSYCHIATRIC DRUGS.

INDEED, CONGRESS HAS FAILED AND FAILED AND FAILED
———————————————————————————–
Snippet from Rep. Derek Kilmer’s response on “Pills that Kill”
It’s been over a year since the tragedy in Newtown, unfortunately Congress still hasn’t made enough progress on legislation that would keep our sons and daughters safe. THUS FAR, CONGRESS HAS FAILED TO MAKE PROGRESS ON MENTAL HEALTH FUNDING. It has FAILED to make progress on school safety. And it has FAILED to make any progress in the effort to make sure firearms don’t end up in the hands of felons or PEOPLE WITH DANGEROUS MENTAL ILLNESS.

INDEED, THOSE MEMBERS OF CONGRESS THAT ARE FOCUSING ON FURTHER FIREARMS BANS OR RESTRICTIONS ARE CLEARLY FOCUSING ON THE WRONG ISSUE AND ASKING THE WRONG QUESTIONS.

In 2004, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) decided SSRI antidepressants
MUST CARRY A BLACK BOX WARNING THAT THE DRUG CAN CAUSE SUICIDAL TENDENCIES.
BUT WHAT ABOUT VIOLENCE AND HOMICIDAL TENDENCIES?
Despite mounting evidence that antidepressants and certain other drugs can induce violent behavior and has led to the tragic death of spouses, family members and friends,
THE FDA HAS DONE NOTHING TO WARN OR CURB THE USE OF SUCH DRUGS.
Should Antidepressants Carry Black Box Warning for Homicidal Tendencies?

IT IS THE IDEOLOGY OF DRUGGING, THE IDEA THAT PEOPLE CAN AND SHOULD BE CHEMICALLY MANAGED, AND THAT REPRESENTS THE MOST PERVASIVE IMPOSITION ON PERSONAL LIBERTY AND THE MOST DANGEROUS EXTENSION OF AUTHORITY
——————————————————————————————————————-
http://ablechild.org/1993/06/01/an-analysis-of-the-legal-issues-surrounding-the-forced-use-of-ritalin/
The question of dependency on [drugs such as Ritalin] quickly turns from a medical INTO A POLITICAL QUESTION whose very definition involves not merely the psychological state of the patient but also the social and political impositions of the society and ITS INSTITUTIONS . . . .
[I]n all such cases of liberty, this one has implications for every member of the population, not merely those who are chemically incarcerated. . . .IT IS THE IDEOLOGY OF DRUGGING, THE IDEA THAT PEOPLE CAN AND SHOULD BE CHEMICALLY MANAGED, AND THAT REPRESENTS THE MOST PERVASIVE IMPOSITION ON PERSONAL LIBERTY AND THE MOST DANGEROUS EXTENSION OF AUTHORITY.
The . . . counterargument that a certain drug isn’t hurting a certain child . . . and that one should not sacrifice his well-being to some political abstraction, is itself a disguised political argument in defense of the standards that determine his . . . success.
THE ARGUMENT SEEMS TO PROVE THAT WHILE THE CHILD MAY NOT BECOME DEPENDENT ON THE DRUG, THOSE WHO RECOMMEND AND DEFEND IT ALREADY ARE.
—————————————————————————————————————–
INDEED, THOSE MEMBERS OF CONGRESS THAT ARE FOCUSING ON FURTHER FIREARMS BANS OR RESTRICTIONS ARE CLEARLY FOCUSING ON THE WRONG ISSUE AND ASKING THE WRONG QUESTIONS.
Indeed, who is responsible? Congress has failed and failed and failed….
The congressional investigation and debate should be focused on the mood altering drugs that people are being given as more than 60 school shootings among and more than 4,800 violent attacks have been linked to PSYCHIATRIC DRUGS.

Rep. Derek Kilmer’s response on “Pills that Kill”

Dear Ms. Hewett,
Thank you for contacting me about preventing GUN violence. I appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts with me.
My thoughts and prayers are with the VICTIMS and their families of the tragedies that have recently rattled the West Coast in Isla Vista, Portland, and in our state at Seattle Pacific University.
When my wife Jennifer and I drop our KIDS off at school, we want them to be filled with hope and excitement about the day ahead – never with questions about whether they will be safe. That’s what all parents want.
It’s been over a year since the tragedy in Newtown, and unfortunately Congress still hasn’t made enough progress on legislation that would keep our SONS AND DAUGHTERS safe. Thus far, Congress has failed to make progress on mental health funding. It has failed to make progress on school safety. And it has failed to make any progress in the effort to make sure FIREARMS don’t end up in the hands of felons or people with dangerous mental illness.
I find this incredibly disappointing – not simply as a member of Congress who has been fighting to move forward on each of these issues, but as a dad.
But I’m not willing to give up.
Nothing is more important to me than ensuring the safety of our CHILDREN. Congress still must find ways to move forward on commonsense legislation to keep GUNS out of the hands of felons and people with dangerous mental illness. It’s estimated that 40 percent of GUN owners don’t go through a background check when purchasing a GUN. As a consequence, GUNS are ending up in the wrong hands. We can’t accept that. Too much is at stake.
One bright spot is that the House recently passed a strong bipartisan amendment to increase resources for our existing background checks system. Despite that, I think there is still more that we can do.
I am proud to be a cosponsor of H.R. 1565, a bipartisan bill that would require universal background checks – including requiring background checks at GUN shows, on all GUN sales over the internet, and sales through classified advertisements. I believe this legislation is a common sense way to strengthen public safety while protecting the Second Amendment rights of responsible GUN owners.
While there’s more that needs to be done, Congress can and should move quickly and thoughtfully to keep our neighborhoods and schools safe. I’ll continue to urge House Leadership to bring this bill forward.
