Subject: RE: BS: Ban anti-depressant drugs, not guns
Thank you for that clinical analysis, Greg F. One of your more eloquent position statements.

Psychiatric Drugs & Violence—The Facts

There have been 22 international drug regulatory warnings issued on psychiatric drugs causing violence, mania, hostility, aggression, psychosis, and other violent type reactions (See full list at the bottom of this page). These warnings have been issued in the United States, European Union, Japan, United Kingdom, Australia and Canada.

Psychiatric Meds: Prescription for Murder?

"In virtually every mass school shooting during the past 15 years, the shooter has been on or in withdrawal from psychiatric drugs," observed Lawrence Hunter of the Social Security Institute. "Yet, federal and state governments continue to ignore the connection between psychiatric drugs and murderous violence, preferring instead to exploit these tragedies in an oppressive and unconstitutional power grab to snatch guns away from innocent, law-abiding people who are guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution the right to own and bear arms to deter government tyranny and to use firearms in self defense against any miscreant who would do them harm."
