... and the blame games start all over again. The last round of politicizing a tragedy to play the blame game finally faded into the night. Gah. Once every three years.

*sigh* It's not the guns.

This was another disturbed individual with apparent mental issues.

Let's look at what meds this guy was on.

None of the kids were shot by meds.

No, and without guns you have a million other, most far more horrible, ways of killing people ... and often a lot more people ... using nothing more than common household items.

Dare you to mix bleach and ammonia. Face it, the blame game just wastes time and destroys the value of the lost lives, if you want to ruin their memories by playing "who gets the finger" then you are part of the wrong species.

You sir, are an idiot.

The guns did not kill the children either. However, the disturbed guy that was more than likely on some form of perscription drugs did.

There is the problem.

Time and time again we look into the mass shootings and there is a common theme. That theme is that these guys are on some form of prescription drugs. Usually anti-depressants. The columbine kids, on Prozac. Hassan in Fort Hood? Self prescribing anti-depressants. The dude in CO? Look at him and tell me he is not on drugs. And was seeing a shrink.

Bottom line here. These prescription drugs alter the mind chemistry. You see the ads, hell we all do. Where the side effects alone are worst than the actual cause to take the drugs. Like the suicidal thoughts and violent tendencies.

But no body is looking and asking if the guys was on some form of prescritpion drugs. And why? Think it would have anything to do with big pharma spending millions on ad spots in the media? Or possibly the millions they spend on campaign contributions?

The United States has the largest prescription drug taking society in the world. That should tell you something.

As much as I hate it, I have to agree with almost everything you stated here.
