Homeschool your kids. Don't leave them at the mercy of an impersonal institution run by professional morons.

The reality is that gun control will likely change nothing wrt the numbers (as you can get a gun everywhere like you can get drugs everywhere)


That's a problem gun control can address as well. Without the probability of sales, manufacturers would stop producing so many guns.

If they go into it knowing they are going to be splattered within 30 seconds, the proposition is not nearly as attractive.


Perfect.

That's why most mass shootings take place at schools, shopping malls and theaters. The shooters know there won't be any resistance.

That's regardless all the credible studies saying that the "armed heroic defense" is pretty much a myth.)


A myth?

The following article claims that mass killings/shootings is a side effect of handing out anti-depressant drugs (SSRI drugs) like candy to everyone that says they are depressed or unhappy. This includes Prozac, Paxil and similar drugs. I wonder if there might be some truth to that claim.

Come to think of it, is it possible that many current societal ills are caused by anti-depressant medications? People, young and old, are dissatisfied with their lives. They take antidepressants to feel better, but does the medication also make many of them completely uncritical of themselves and their own actions? I could see this could lead to blaming everyone else for what is wrong, and then lead to rage and mass murder. It may also have the (milder) effect of people having a very high opinion of themselves and treat other people with little regard. Sort of a sociopathic effect caused by anti-depressants. And it does not just apply to men, in fact from what I see women have never been less critical of themselves than in current society.

How common is it to take anti-depressants? I personally know only one person that will admit to it, and he said he has since gotten off the meds but that it was difficult to quit. That's all the details I know. He seemed a bit hyper in 2016 -2017, but not sociopathic. He has always been a very decent man.

Here is the article:

This is already proven, not even a hypothesis anymore. SSRIs are known to cause homocidal and suicidal thoughts, esp. so with younger patients (< 25). If you know any of your friends taking them you can see that they initially take away the edge when heavily medicated but in the process cause heavy imbalances and eventually they lose their effectiveness and increase the condition, leading to manic depressive, homocidal and suicidal behavior. Yes you can observer that effect in women as well - while by nature less deadly - equally verbally and physically violent. Many of them do take these and they also make a good excuse for their shortcomings. If you have affected friends do not let them take SSRIs or let them get addicted to them.

One in 6 Americans Take Antidepressants, Other Psychiatric Drugs.

One in six Americans take some kind of psychiatric drugs — mostly antidepressants, researchers reported Monday.

They also found that twice as many white people take those drugs as do African-Americans or other minorities, and fewer than 5 percent of Asian-Americans do. And most people who take them are taking them long-term, Thomas Moore of the Institute for Safe Medication Practices in Alexandria, Virginia and colleagues found.

You mean wacko American kids, right? Because I haven't heard of any Czech, Polish, or Swiss kids, for example, doing the same.

Seriously, what is the problem with this country - is it the people, is it the guns, or both? I say it is both.

A gun on your hip doesn't block bullets. Mass shooters choose places where people meet in mass not places that are "gun free".

Really, so San Bernardino, the Colorado theater, Sandy hook school, Las Vegas, Parkview school, the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Virginia Tech, Sutherland Springs Church, Ft. Hood, Columbine, Charleston Church, etc. all had plenty of people with guns on them when the shooter opened fire?

Please stop with your nonsense.

Absolutely, specially AR-15's, they should be totally banned.

Let's look at some facts:

There are approximately 5 million AR-15's in the country. Over the last 10 years, they have been used in 10 mass shootings.

So, that averages a AR-15 involved 1 out of 5,000,000 times a year in a mass shooting.

Hmmm, doesn't sound like a epidemic.

Let's look at cars:

There are approximately 268 million cars in the country. 40,000 people die in car accidents each year.

Hmmm, what's killing more people?

Why aren't Dems calling for a ban on cars yet?
