Killing requires a lifeless piece of metal and a living breathing human. Without the living human, there is no death.
So why aren't we asking questions about the human factors involved while we continue the push for greater gun control?
The human who killed 20 innocent children and 6 adults was believed to suffer from a personality disorder (according to AP).
Did this condition require medication?
Other than a lifeless piece of metal, what makes a human a monster?
Demand to know, did this human grow up overmedicated?
What company manufactured his "medication". Let's see the history of results of clinical trials and side effects both publicized and not disclosed.
How early in his life span was his developing human brain first exposed to this "medication"?
What was the physician approved dosing schedule of this "medication"?
What is (are) the name(s) of other "medications" given to this young human, when, in what combination and for how long?
This 20 year old kid, annihilated his own mother and slaughtered every child in her classroom.
She was a kindergarten teacher, a woman who loved children.
What ever became of the national discussion about the psychotropics the kids at Columbine were on, the kid at Virginia Tech?
And what about the overmedicated suburbanite kid in Aurora who grew up not a victim of abuse, white, affluent, educated?
If we're going to come together as a nation and help prevent these mass killings, we need to look at all factors involved and not just lifeless metal.
Fact: Despite 22 international drug regulatory warnings on psychiatric drugs citing effects of mania, hostility, violence and even homicidal ideation, and dozens of high profile shootings/killings tied to psychiatric drug use, there has yet to be a federal investigation on the link between psychiatric drugs and acts of senseless violence.http://www.cchrint.org/...
Fact: At least fourteen recent school shootings were committed by those taking or withdrawing from psychiatric drugs resulting in 109 wounded and 58 killed (in other school shootings, information about their drug use was never made public—neither confirming or refuting if they were under the influence of prescribed drugs.)
Fact: Between 2004 and 2011, there have been over 11,000 reports to the U.S. FDA’s MedWatch system of psychiatric drug side effects related to violence. These include 300 cases of homicide, nearly 3,000 cases of mania and over 7,000 cases of aggression. Note: By the FDA’s own admission, only 1-10% of side effects are ever reported to the FDA, so the actual number of side effects occurring are most certainly higher.
