Thoughts on School Shootings...
I wonder when Americans will stop blaming guns for the deaths of Americans in school shootings and start seeking out root cause. Consider the simple fact that in Canada, they have even more liberal gun laws than in the United States yet you don't hear of school shootings there.
Maybe the issue isn't that all school shootings tend to have guns in common but do tend to have drugs in common. I bet you didn't know that every single school shooting had in common that a person fell off their medication that was issued by companies such as Pfizer, Merck and others?
Ask yourself, does the FDA ever consider studies before a drug goes to market that tests the side effects of when a person stops taking a drug? If we all know the effect of a crack head and what happens when they don't get their fix, then why would we expect it to be any different? I hope you aren't delusional into thinking that it is different simply because one is legal and the other isn't?
