I wish to express my condolences to eveyone for the loss of these children. The parents loss is inconceivable; our nation's loss is a tragety. What no one seems to mention is each and every one of the shooters in these senseless shootings of the last 15 years was on prescribed serotonin re-uptake inhibitors or SSRI's. I believe the finger is being pointed in the wrong direction. It is not guns or the access to guns that have caused these shootings; it is people on SSRIs whether the prescriptions are for real mental illness or custodial because of behaviorial issues these drugs are prescribed too often and those on them are not monitored closely enough.
However our failing government uses this and every other shooting to villify firearms.
