It’s absolutely ridiculous that a bunch of people who know nothing about guns, or the history of the Constitution, think they know everything about how to solve the problem of mass shootings in schools. There are at least some in the conservative media who are connecting the dots between mental illness and these horrific crimes. And what role do drugs play in these atrocities? A big part.
World Net Daily has a compilation of some very interesting stats:
As information about the perpetrator emerges, a relative confides to a newspaper that the “troubled youth” who committed the mass murder was on psychiatric medications – you know, those powerful, little understood, mind-altering drugs with fearsome side effects including “suicidal ideation” and even “homicidal ideation.”
… This is strikingly similar to reports right after the 2013 school massacre in Newtown, Connecticut, when Mark and Louise Tambascio, family friends of shooter Adam Lanza and his mother, were interviewed on CBS’ “60 Minutes,” during which Louise Tambascio told correspondent Scott Pelley: “I know he was on medication and everything, but she homeschooled him at home cause he couldn’t deal with the school classes sometimes, so she just homeschooled Adam at home. And that was her life.” And here, Tambascio tells ABC News, “I knew he was on medication, but that’s all I know.”
… Fact: A disturbing number of perpetrators of school shootings and similar mass murders in our modern era were either on – or just recently coming off of – psychiatric medications.
WND goes on to list any number of past shooting crimes in which the perpetrators were on psychiatric drugs. How is it that the media misses that in its reporting?
Liberals, do you still think it’s a gun problem?
