Subject: RE: BS: Ban anti-depressant drugs, not guns
Unfortunately, some situations are difficult to predict and prevent.

I normally don't quote killers, but this perspective seems imorttant to the discussion. Below are a couple of quotes from Ted Bundy. Could there be other factors to consider? If so, are there any avenues left to deal with those factors? :

"there lots of other kids playing in streets around this country today who are going to be dead tomorrow, and the next day, and the next day and month, because other young people are reading the kinds of things and seeing the kinds of things that are available in the media today. "

"Well-meaning, decent people will condemn the behavior of a Ted Bundy, while they're walking past a magazine rack full of the very kinds of things that send young kids down the road to be Ted Bundys."
