After the Charleston massacre, President Obama made this comment: the unique mayhem that gun violence afflicts upon this nation. Of course, regarding mass public shootings, Obama doesnt need to look any further than France, which last year suffered 532 casualties (killings and woundings) versus 527 in the US during the first seven full years of the Obama administration from 2009 through January 2017.

Solution: end immigration. :)
...59 of the worst 66, occurred outside the United States...
You mean where highly restrictive gun control Democrats slobber over didn’t work? I didn’t think Democrats ever lied or exaggerate.
Does that include the 78 the FBI killed in Waco?

Of course not. The Clintons always get a pass.
The anti gun policy is just a diversionary tactic for people who are loyal to those who are violent and just happen to use guns.
IOWs that jackass Dem. Senator Chris Murphy was lying through his teeth yesterday when he said “this only happens in America.”

Cruz and Lanza were on psychoactive drugs according to family members and acquaintances. Holmes was on a psychoactive medication.
Paddock was on a psychotropic med per the autopsy report.
Thanks! So that’s
* Cruz (according to his mother’s sister, Barbara Kumbatovich)
* Lanza (Louise Tambascio, friend of Lanza’s family)
* and Holmes (confirmed, on record)!
Use this information in any way helpful (news outlets, discussion boards, etc.).
What is interesting about Paddock is that the general claim (never backed up by the FBI or Vegas cops) is that it was only four months prior to Vegas shooting...that he was put on psychotropic medications. So it took barely over a hundred days for them to affect the guy.
When you go and examine a lot of the guys who have PTSD...psychotropic medications are often prescribed to them.
As a kid, I had this neighbor family that lived across from the farm. Brother and sister there....I knew both of them. As the years passed, they each married. Somewhere in the 2011 period, the brother and his wife got into a messy divorce situation. The sister was a personal friend of the wife, and drove down to be at a divorce hearing (bringing her son along). The sister arrived on the Friday before the hearing. Over that weekend...the brother came to the house...murdered the wife, his daughter, his sister, and the sister’s son (mass murder). Then he killed himself. The previous six year, he had a lot of stress and I suspect he was on a psychotropic medication theme as well. Doesn’t matter now...he’s dead.
I suspect if you could terminate or end psychotropic drug production....that you’d notice a 50-percent drop-off in these mass murders within the first year alone.
Would you post a citation for Cruz being on psychotropic medication? I have seen only references that he had stopped going to counseling. Would greatly appreciate having that information.
Also, has anyone seen a diagnosis mentioned?
‘Gun Free Zones’ and the abuse of psychotropic drugs has a big roll in all of this.
Kumbatovich said she believed Nikolas Cruz was on medication to deal with his emotional fragility. "She was struggling with Nikolas the last couple years," she said.
Cruz was getting treatment at a mental health clinic for a while, but hadnt been there for more than a year, Broward County Mayor Beam Furr said during an interview with CNN.
Cruz started throwing eggs at Spenos car with no warning, Speno recalled. He and a friend chased Cruz back to his house. "We were pissed off, so we knocked on the door and his mom came out," Speno said. When the two told her what happened, Cruzs mom had a strange reaction. "She said, No, my son would never do that. Hes inside sleeping, " Speno recalled.

I'll tell you what, around 1982 the gal I was dating gave me an anti-anxiety pill she had. I don't recall why, I must have been real upset about something, she suggested it and I thought it was a good idea.
Within an hour I was feeling nothing but rage and very specifically feeling like I wanted to kill somebody. For no reason at all. Totally not me. I was never a fighter not even when drunk as a skunk. The feeling and the thoughts were irresistible.
At the time I had pretty much lost interest in smoking pot but had friends that always had some. Went over to their place, asked them to get me stoned and went home and went to bed still feeling murderous but at least the feeling was resistible and I could fall sleep.
Of all the things I've ever taken nothing has ever put thoughts in my head like that Rx psychotropic pill nor has anything else made me feel agitated and angry. It scared the crap out me that it could do that. I was struggling to reason it out but it was overriding all my efforts.
To be clear, it wasn't anger that I took the #@$# pill for in the first place. The anger came out of nowhere when the pill kicked in. Actually it was more rage and hatred than what I normally experience as anger.
