It should come as no surprise that the rate of mass shootings at schools and in other public places is increasing. The surge has nothing to do with guns, which have been widely available in the U.S. for years. Gun control laws have been increasing.

I'd like to see profiling on these killers - Sandy Hook, Columbine, VA Tech, Aurora CO. I bet prescription medications are the common link. One of the Columbine killers had been prescribed Luvox, an SSRI. SSRI's are linked to suicidal & homicidal behaviors. American kids spend their childhood on Ritalin (an amphetamine) because they're diagnosed as "ADHD," then transition to anti-depressants when they're older. We've created these homicidal maniacs because we want a quick fix to our problems. Instead of taking the time to discover that our kids are having a reaction to artificial food additives that are producing "ADHD symptoms," or teaching them how to understand & handle emotions, we reach for the quick fix - which is not a fix at all.
