Are Guns the Problem?

One topic not being discussed here, aside from the numerous comments within the Obama administration regarding 'tragedies', and "not letting a good one go to waste," is the largely spread and widely accepted use in this country of SRIs or saretonin reuptake inhibitors. Nearly every person who has carried out these mass shootings in the last 25 years, has been on one form of them or another. When you mess with your own body chemistry, there are invariably going to be dire consequences. For most people it is an impairment of regular sensory function. Be that an inability to focus, feel, comprehend, etc. But for a select few, (and i use the term 'select' heavily), it results in a cataclysmic collapse, and violent response to said collapse.

Correlation is not causation. These people already had problems that resulted in their starting on medicines in the first place. Medicine alone only does about half the job. Failure to work on the other half is what yielded these results, not the medicine. Else the millions of people that have taken these medicines with good results would have had other outcomes. More than 10% of the country has taken Prozac alone. Symptoms of a populace reacting to being indoctrinated into a sick culture, not the cause of the problem. Some people are just not going to handle the combination of the sick culture and their own internal demons no matter what medicine they try.

The reality is medicine is not the answer, there is rarely a case where a chemically manufactured substance trumps exercise and a good diet. And by diet i mean, eating healthy, chemical free foods, Sodium Flouride free water, and receiving the nutrients and vitamins that we all need, and few get. You cannot discount the fact that these substances are pushed (often times on the under aged and under developed youth), and that a cocktail of both chemical bombardments, and morally bankrupt societal influences through television, would lead to such violent actions among these youth.

Good point. I read an article (can't remember where) about the boatload of drugs our servicemen are getting when they come home, note the spike in military suicides? Just asking.

Well aside from the fact that military suicide has i believe double since Vietnam, it is currently the number one cause of unatural death in the US. Why is that? It's certainly something i wonder about.

That is certainly part of it for some, but the use of SRIs is so completely damaging, and the exposure that many of them had to DU (depleted Uranium), and other chemicals plays a part in it as well. Plus the fact that man serve multiple tours, a practice that was thwarted after a case study was done on soldiers after the first World War, when it was deduced that one tour resulted in enough trauma, ie. PTS.

And where are the news stories the point out the hypocrisy of these proposed laws in light of the Fast and Furious scandal?

Well there not there, nor will they be, from the presstitute media. It's the same with all of the other impeachable offenses that the current dictator has committed. And these 'Executive Orders' will just be another in a long stream of reasons why we need to get rid of this current administration, and restore our Republic.

Doug5049-I have a Major problem with some of your "theory! Unless I have slept through the past few decades the Military is an "ALL VOLUNTEER FORCE"and nobody is drafted/forced to "serve". Now, Personally, I believe the all "volunteer force" was a MISTAKE. As a 25+year vet of the Vietnam fiasco (also a year or two of the Korean disaster) I firmly believe the DRAFT should be reinstated with ABSOLUTELY NO DEFERMENTS, Both sexes, with the semi-option of self choice as to the Induction AGE! Start early at 18 or get out when you're 35--Make it easy on oneself! How does that grab U, Doug?
When I attended primary and secondary school -- during the 1940s and '50s -- one didn't hear of the kind of shooting mayhem that's become routine today. Why? It surely wasn't because of strict firearm laws. My replica of the 1902 Sears mail-order catalog shows 35 pages of firearm advertisements. People just sent in their money, and a firearm was shipped.

Dr. John Lott, author of "More Guns, Less Crime," reports that until the 1960s, some New York City public high schools had shooting clubs where students competed in citywide shooting contests for university scholarships. They carried their rifles to school on...
