    All of the mass shooting and this incedent involve guns and mental illness.
    Could you give me DSM codes for the perpetrators of " all of the mass shooting incidents"?

    I'll make it easier for ya- Just give me Lanza's DSM diagnosis.

    Listen, this diary actually sounds like you think that bi-polar people are more dangerous than the average individual. Here's some, ya know, actual data saying otherwise.

    I live with a psychiatric disorder, as do my wife and my father. Surprisingly, it does not make our lives any easier when the ignorant put us up as the Boogeyman.

    Do you know what disorder actually IS strongly associated with violence? Substance abuse- in particular, alcohol abuse.

    Why don't ya go chase after the drunks instead?

      Grandma, Adam Lanza - the Colorado shooter (Batman) and the Arizona shooter were.....those were the ones I'm talking about and I would beg to differ that they're not dangerous.

      If you want to talk facts about gun criminals - look it up - and they're not the white supremist, NRA type - they don't use assault rifles.

      I didn't say you or everyone with a psychiatric disorder is - but I don't want to take the chance and if you have a disease that turns you manic - to hand you a pistol and tell you to pick up the kids....OK?

        and now you're back-pedaling away from your prejudice.

        Whatever.

          then I can't debate with you.

          Here's what we know about Lanza  - that he killed in cold blood 26 innocent people.  Most of them helpless children - so his DSM code was  HE WAS FUCKING NUTS...OK?

          And yes - I'm prejudiced about people who want to kill others...what does you DSM say about killers?

          Don't be so sensitive - I'm not calling you personally dangerous - don't blame the messenger that the common thread between the killings I stated happens to be mental illness and guns.
