....(continued) government/big Pharma approved brain candy like Luvox, Paxil, Ritalin, and the like. Because it gets hard to advocate for gun control, when you show heroic government "Drug War" agents murdering private citizens on trumped-up charges. But when you show private citizens murdering people, while on officially-sanctioned drugs, that makes a semi-plausible case for gun control. So long as you don't think too deeply.

Silence is the only acceptable answer to your lambasting. Well done.

But since YOU brought it up, let's make a comparison, shall we?

HOW MANY of the recent mass murders were perpetrated by people using marijuana, but none of the SSRI drugs?

To ask the question is to answer it.

Heck--how many of them were made by heroin addicts? By cocaine users? Answer: ZERO.

Now, perhaps you can respond to the challenge, not with mere name-calling, but with actual facts and logic. I'd be delighted to see what you have to say, on those conditions.

Really? No one--certainly not I--claimed that "ALL" drug charges are necessarily trumped up. But in this case, they certainly were. (This leaves aside the question of whether or not there should be an unconstitutional War on Drugs, but that is a discussion for another day).

Also, no one made the claim that Paxil is "no different" from recreational narcotics.

AZYaateeh, you are great at answering arguments that were never made.

No worse than yours. You are here concerned to claim 1) that all drug charges are trumped up and 2) that Paxil, a drug for treating a neurological disorder, is no different from recreational narcotics.

Actually, "you're an idiot" just about sums it up. Tinfoil hat on too tight, slappy?

Doctorbone: Gosh, that's a profound, well-reasoned argument.

I’m not a big gun owner and I’m not part of the gun culture. So why, then, do I frequently post about the issue of gun control?

Mostly because I believe in freedom and the Constitution.

But I also appreciate facts and analysis and I know that law-abiding citizens are safer and criminals face greater obstacles when good people have the right of self defense.

Last but not least, I think there’s a non-trivial possibility that the United States will suffer some sort of social chaos and/or breakdown of law and order because of the damage caused by reckless...
