Every single act of "gun violence" in schools since 1995, here and in other countries around the world, has been committed by someone either on anti-depressant drugs, or in a withdrawal phase from anti-depressant drugs.

President Obama, bravely speaking out against this horror, said, “We have an obligation to ensure that our schools are safe for all our kids.” Amen, Mr. President. Amen.
