One common factor in these Gun massacres

 

Someone posted this on Facebook yesterday. They provided a list showing how all the culprits had been on or were still on some form of anti-psychotic medication.

Suggesting this is a mental health issue not a gun issue.

As a footnote here I would include the fact that we can all thank “saint Ronnie” for cutting funding for mental health care, but that is another issue, so back to the point.

To the poster I say “DUH!” Yes these people were/are clearly unstable, any person that would do such a thing as slaughter innocent children is not right in the mind. We do not have to search their medical records to determine this.

And short of locking all these people in hospital wards or prisons there will be no end to this activity unless we find a way to stop them from getting access to the weapons of mass destruction more commonly referred to as GUNS!

And while we are working on this we should also look into a way to refuse guns to adults that do not have enough sense to keep the killing machines locked in safe places so another 3-year-old does not kill his 18 month old brother.

Well now I have to take my blood pressure, hope this reduced it a bit. 😉

But i doubt it there are two or three other things going on this morning that have me riled up.

  1. I like John Oliver’s take on this:

    “One failed attempt at a shoe bomb and we all have to take our shoes off at the airport. Thirty-one school shootings since Columbine and no change in the regulation of guns.”
