8 out of 15 were not gun-related examples, and 6 were suicides. Although I agree, guns and any intoxicant don't mix, if you're going to bolster your pro-gun stance by cut and pasting, learn how to do it properly. Suicide by gun is only one way that people kill themselves - if the guns weren't available, people would still hang themselves or jump off bridges.

Amazing M69, we actually can agree on something. At least partially.
The use of drugs and guns, including suicides should be the only examples used.
That being said, it is a sad comment on our society today, when the first answer to behavioral issues in children and adults for judges, mental health professionals, doctors, teachers and parents is to medicate them. We need to use drugs, whether legal or illegal as a last resort, not a first resort.
The pharmaceutical companies are laughing all the way to the bank and concocting even more witches brews that have worse side effects than the issue they were made to solve. They need to be held accountable, but that won't happen, because they have deep pockets and the medical profession loves to be well paid for their endorsement of those poisons.
Parents need to carefully evaluate whether or not the proposed drug regimen is really the best avenue for their children. They need to stand strong against the onslaught of advertising and the powerful pressure from the medical profession and do what is right for their child, not what is convenient for the school systems.

I guess it is rolling the dice with drugs. It helps some greatly and may well be the cause of death in others. Throw in the question of guns being related and it becomes even more dangerous but how do you reduce it?

Stop sniveling and blaming everybody else, put your big boy pants on, get off the internet and go out and do something to improve the situation instead of crying and sniveling all the time.

I think we start by reducing our dependency on drugs to modify our behavior. Then we take on the big pharma companies and the government entities that oversee them and demand that they eliminate the drugs on the market with side effects that are extremely hazardous to our health, regardless of the profit losses. Then we hold the medical profession accountable for the diagnosis they make and the prescriptions they foist on us. We become more educated on the use of the drugs that we put into our bodies. We question, question, question everything that the medical profession and the government says. We no longer accept anti social behavior from our children and we allow school officials to punish our children when they misbehave.

On a more serious note, drugs and mostly everything don't mix - doesn't have to be just guns - driving, drinking, etc.

I'm really disappointed M69, is that the best you can do?
