you are right almost all the young mass shooters have been on some type of anti depressant
I agree with over 8 million children on anti depressant drugs, it should be looked into. The drugs could just be a corollary symptom and not the root cause...or if they stop taking them or it could be a side effect-depression, suicidal thoughts etc.
however, with as much money as big pharma is making on these drugs and combined with the fact that they along with numerous other corporate interests own congress i wouldn't hold my breath
The drugs don't make peoples problems go away. They just don't care. Suicide is also a huge problem for people on anti depressants.

lol! Son, you're not even smart enough to talk about the so called declaration of war for iraq you claim exists.

And now you're trying to "educate" others on what they should read???

You should get some knowledge first son. No one wants to be as "intelligent" as you are now! You'd set them back a couple of grades!

In many cases, the mother needs to work to pay college tuition for the children when the family supposedly earns too much to qualify for financial aid. The entire second income is a transfer payment to the college.
Taxes are also a major factor requiring a second income.
According to Mr. Romney, IIRC,'you deserve the education you can afford'. It's all about priorities: do you 'save' for your kids' college educations, or do you spend what you would otherwise be saving to pay for their orthodontia and guitar lessons now?(Do you invest in your state's college savings plan, or that offered by your employer?) Do you pay close attention to your child's interests, and do your best to encourage them to pursue same, or do you 'decide' for your child that traditional higher education is the only option?

I should probably mention that young Adam, who incidentally looks like the teenaged Phil Spector, has long been known to be nuttier than a shthouse rat.
Kinda makes one wonder why mom was a gun freak eh?
If she was a lock freak she might still be breathing.
Your attorney is a bit weird.

Great, go ahead and get all the lock nuts in a tizzy. Locks did not kill that woman.

This isn't the UK, but since you brought it up - how's their gun related death stats? According to one chart ours is about 9 per 100,000, Canada's is 4.78 and the UK is .22 Hmm. I guess you have a point, after all.
BTW, I'm not a Democrat.
Piers Morgan said that there were something like 35 gun murders in the UK last year. What is the U.S. number? 10,000?

There is nothing Secretary of State Clinton could reveal that is not already known. The consulate was attacked to coincide with an anti-Muslim video. It was later discovered to be a terrorist attack. The facts have all been made public. It's time to move on.

Laws require cars to be driven at safe speeds. Laws should also limit the speed bullets are available to the shooter. There is no reason to allow semi-automatic or assault rifles. Many lives would be saved from crazies if these killing tools are limited.
Since when do cruminals obey laws? That's what you loony left wingers don't get. If someone is going to shoot up a school, do you think they care about gun laws?

No, it certainly is not. It's a misconception that affluence insures against the ills that befall our children. I don't know the stats but there have been quite a number of suicides by young people who one would say "but he had everything" as if that is the answer. Mental illness and depression have no boundaries; there are no magic wand cure alls for those that suffer from it and the prescribed anti depressants are experimentally handed out; see how this works for you, if not, try this etc and then sometimes they work and sometimes they backfire and make the person worse.
Personally I don't trust those meds and would advise other forms of getting well besides drugs.
Americans want instant solutions to everything, a happy pill if you're sad, a sleeping pill, diet pill, etc. I think people should excersise more and eat properly. I'm not discounting that clinical depression exists. Many people just abruptly stop taking them, often causing havoc in their minds.

You are touching on an excellent point. Our kids are exposed to violence at a very young age from watching TV and playing games.
The "Savior" Democrats however would "NEVER" go after their cash cow and buddies in Hollywood. The Democrats act as if violence in movies and on TV does not exist.
The Democrat is incapable of logic and seeing past the end of his nose. The Democrat is also lacking in principle and ethics. He ignores negative factors and implications if it suits his NAZI agenda. He even propagandizes news like the NAZI and fascist governments do.
Benghazi was a text book example.
How much violence do you think the average 'cave-child' was exposed to?

I'm thinking "QUITE A BIT" myself. Funny thing though, they didn't have political parties, because they had tribal councils...

We're still cavemen, Waxy. We just have iPhones and inter-continental ballistic missiles now.

The more things change, the more things stay the same, eh?

The NY Daily News, NYPost, NY Times, Daily Mail; all posted the same photo of the boy from a few years ago. The older brother said he had not seen his brother in 2 years, parents divorced in 2008, both parents educated and pretty well off, father remarried. Sounds like a nice family, the boy had either a personality disorder and or autism. Sad all the way around.

<quoted text>Gee Whiz Ben, what is your definition of a semi-automatic weapon? We'll give you time to look it up, if you don't know?
Definition: Semi-automatic guns are those which fire the round in the chamber, extract it, eject it, and load a new round into the chamber each time the trigger is pulled.
Revolvers and bolt action rifles take more time to fire and have less ammunition in the magazine. These characteristics do not restrict gun owners using guns for self defense but allow more potential victims to escape in attacks when used on unarmed citizens.
What's your point?
