Subject: RE: BS: Ban anti-depressant drugs, not guns
Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs) are anti-depressants. They're being prescribed more and more. SSRIs have a long history of triggering suicide and violent behavior in patients who take them. The US corporate media does not report these stories for fear of losing lucrative pharmaceutical advertising deals. The US Government looks the other way (the FDA is "considering" a warning label on SSRIs) while our children commit suicides and carry out acts of extreme violence that opportunistic politicians use to attack the Second Amendment. The next time you hear about a mass shooting, look for the medical history of the shooter. Half of the shooters have a history of treatment with SSRIs.
