People must be alert.
people with camera cell phones must start sending pics to police of someone they think may or may not be suspicious.
Police should set up an alert for such pictures.better safe than sorry..
if a police dept had prior knowledge maybe things could be stopped before they progress to mass murders?
I think a police dta base for nothing but suspicious or known criminals among us would be most helpful in recognizing and capturing criminals or would be killers before they act?

FauxNews...How do you feel now? Will you be showing pics of the family, down to the children, posing around the Christmas tree, all proudly sporting their assault rifles?

You have your war against Christmas with that pic alone. Nothing about Christmas says asault rifles.

We need to stop promoting the gun as though its what needed to be considered an "American."

66 School Shootings/Incidents Involving SSRIs

Most of the stories on this site describe events that occurred after the year 2000. The increase in online news material and the efficiency of search engines has greatly increased the ability to track stories. Even these 4,800+ documented stories only represent the tip of an iceberg since most stories do not make it into the media. There are 115 cases of bizarre behavior, 66 school shootings/incidents, 68 road rage tragedies, 19 air rage incidents, 101 arson cases, 70 postpartum depression cases, over 1,000 murders (homicides) or murder attempts, over 300 murder-suicides (30% committed by women) and other acts of violence including workplace violence on this site. There are also over 100 Journal Articles and FDA reports listed in the Index. They are at the top of the Index immediately below the 66 school shootings/incidents and the 29 "won" criminal cases.

WHAT PSYCHIATRIC DRUG WAS ADAM LANZA TAKING ??????

Same day as this massacre, a Chinese man stabbed 22 people with a knife.

Mother Jones just ran an article about past mass killings.... Over half of the mass murders occurred in states that have the strictest ass-nine gun laws.

Over 1/3 of them were performed with illegally obtained weapons.

Guns are guns, just because the looks or a couple of "NON-DEADLY" features are added to the LOOKS make them no more deadly.

American society calls semiautomatic weapons "automatic"...Not the same thing! Idiot non-savants.

California has a "bullet button" to make someone stop and add an additional step prior to a magazine change, they think this will stop this type of killing. These can be removed. Do you think someone hell bent on mass murder won't take them off? Controls on weapons are a joke.

Car accidents claim more lives than guns in any given year! Why not ban the cars?

In 2009 (CDC Stats), there were approximately 29,000 homicides. Of those homicides, ONLY 40% were performed by GUNS! That is less than half....What else would you ban? Rope, axes, knives, rocks, fists, bats, pipe, all blunt objects? Hell, the motorcycle clubs who are committing homicide are using ball peen hammers! No trace if you don't leave your hammer or witnesses!

Of all suicides in 2009 (CDC Stats), only 1/2 of them used a firearm!

There are more drug overdose deaths in the U.S. yearly than firearm related deaths (homicide and accidental), we have just passed legalization of the first class 1 drug...where will this lead next? Cocaine!

Antidepressants may increase suicidal thoughts or behaviors in some children, teenagers, and young adults, especially within the first few months of treatment or when the dose is changed.

What drug was Adam Lanza Taking ?

Patients on antidepressants and their families or caregivers should watch for new or worsening depression symptoms, unusual changes in behavior, or thoughts of suicide. Such symptoms should be reported to the patient's healthcare provider right away, especially if they are severe or occur suddenly.

Our heart breaks for the young children and teachers that lost their lives. Please pray for them and their families!! We also lost someone very dear to us, our 18 year old son. He died in a very “UNUSUAL WAY”. The day he died he was all excited about getting to his cross country running class to test out his new shoes he was given free the night before. See NEWS VIDEO COVERAGE at http://RacetoHeaven.com
Our son was an AP calculus student in high school, cross country runner that ran 40 plus miles a week since the age of 8. When he died an autopsy was done and no drugs or alcohol were in his system.

The rifle in this case is sporting / hunting rifle not meant for the military, not an "assault rifle."

You need to understand what an assault rifle is. They are full automatic and used by the military. The guns Clinton called assault rifles fired a single round with each pull of the trigger. No army uses a non automatic assault rifle. The left wanted you to think that just because a semiauto looks like a full auto it is the same thing. The Clinton ban looked at feature on a rifle. If it had a pistol grip it was an assault rifle. Take the same gun and put on a thumbhole stock and it was legal. If it had a bayonet lug it was illegal. Cut off the lug and it was legal

Let’s take a look at this. There are numerous examples of people who have gone off on a shooting rampage and killed their classmates, their co-workers, members of their family and often took their own lives, then it was shortly discovered that they were taking an antidepressant. The apparency is that the person was mentally ill and went on a rage but when these cases have actually been looked at closer, what we find is that the person did not have any violent tendencies and in most cases was not even suicidal before they started treatment with their antidepressant medication.

An assault rifle " is " to kill people and to practice killing people.
