The guy was in a mental hospital twice since September. If you know the M.O. at these places they pump people full of drugs and put them back on the street.

Several types of medications can help symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder improve.
Antipsychotics. In some cases, you may be prescribed a short course of antipsychotics to relieve severe anxiety and related problems, such as difficulty sleeping or emotional outbursts.
Antidepressants. These medications can help symptoms of both depression and anxiety. They can also help improve sleep problems and improve your concentration. The selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) medications sertraline (Zoloft) and paroxetine (Paxil) are FDA-approved for the treatment of PTSD.
Anti-anxiety medications. These drugs also can improve feelings of anxiety and stress.
Prazosin. If your symptoms include insomnia or recurrent nightmares, a drug called prazosin (Minipress) may help. Prazosin, which has been used for years in the treatment of hypertension, also blocks the brain’s response to an adrenaline-like brain chemical called norepinephrine. Although this drug is not specifically approved for the treatment of PTSD, prazosin may reduce or suppress nightmares in many people with PTSD.

Serotonin reuptake inhibitor should be examined for possible cause. The shooter was being treated for PTSD.
God rest your soul young man.

Mil-Dot You are a whack o nut job. Of course I advocate death penalty for mass murderers. You are right about one thing. I am not a GOP chick. I will no longer fund their cause.

I hear you brother…. Death penalty would be a good start. What a courageous man.

The Gun Grabbers have got people so scared with their plans of confiscation and banning weapons that they have put guns in the hands of many who would never ordinarily be buying them.
Also have the Gun Grabbers just incited the largest spike in gun sales in American history ? A million AR’s currently on back order.

We’ll have to see what our government think we should be allowed to own.
-Requires that grandfathered weapons be registered under the National Firearms Act, to include:
-Background check of owner and any transferee;
-Type and serial number of the firearm;
-Positive identification, including photograph and fingerprint;
-Certification from local law enforcement of identity and that possession would not violate State or local law; and
-Dedicated funding for ATF to implement registration
And here at the bottom we have the most egregious part. Grandfathered firearms must be registered under this bill. Keep in mind that there is an estimated 9 to 10 million AR-15′s in circulation. And these are just one model of firearm that needs to be registered as this bill seeks to cover most semiautomatics ever made. One could argue that this amounts to a registry of firearm owners in the U.S. But think about what else is being proposed; a background check of all owners who are having their firearms registered including keeping photographs and fingerprints (much like we do for criminals).
Our beleaguered and understaffed BATF already has trouble enforcing existing laws with 4,000 employees, so how are they going to handle this task of creating a national registration database along with conducting millions if not tens of millions of background checks and processing of paperwork, considering that the BATF only processes around 90,000 applications yearly at the mo

@crackerone..Trying to use a horrible tragedy to stir up trouble and advance your gun control agenda is wrong. Noone wants the mentally ill to have access to guns. But I have yet to see a law that will prevent this from happening.

FINALLY SOMETHING WE BOTH AGREE ON…GET OUT OF OUR FACE BIG GOV’T:
It’s safe to say Feinstein, Obama and the rest of the gun control gang face an uphill battle when it comes to limiting any Second Amendment rights. According to a Fox News poll, most Americans—both Republicans and Democrats—would defy any new laws that would take away their guns.
But on to Question 47, addressed to those with a gun in their home: “If the government passed a law to take your guns, would you give up your guns or defy the law and keep your guns?”
The response: 65 percent reported they would “defy the law.” That incudes 70 percent of Republicans, 68 percent of conservatives, 52 percent of Democrats and 59 percent of liberals.
The good news is that it probably won’t come to this. Analysis from Bloomberg shows that if a vote were held today, Feinstein’s proposed gun control legislation, which would prohibit the sale or transfer of an estimated 158 “assault weapons,” would fail to pass the Democrat-controlled Senate.
At least six of the 55 senators in the Democratic caucus have expressed skepticism or outright opposition to a ban, the review found. That means Democrats wouldn’t have a 51-vote majority to pass the measure, let alone the 60 needed to break a Republican filibuster to bring it to a floor vote. […]
Renowned author: Obama wants military leaders who will fire on U.S. citizens

I do not know if it is true but it def warrants investigation:
Nobel Peace Prize Nominee: Obama Asks Military Leaders If They Will “Fire On US Citizens”
Shock claim purported to come from “one of America’s foremost military heroes”
Paul Joseph Watson
January 22, 2013
2009 Nobel Peace Prize nominee Jim Garrow shockingly claims he was told by a top military veteran that the Obama administration’s “litmus test” for new military leaders is whether or not they will obey an order to fire on U.S. citizens.
Garrow was nominated three years ago for the prestigious Nobel Peace Prize and is the founder of The Pink Pagoda Girls, an organization dedicated to rescuing baby girls from “gendercide” in China. Garrow has been personally involved in “helping rescue more than 36,000 Chinese baby girls from death.” He is a public figure, not an anonymous voice on the Internet, which makes his claim all the more disturbing.
“I have just been informed by a former senior military leader that Obama is using a new “litmus test” in determining who will stay and who must go in his military leaders. Get ready to explode folks. “The new litmus test of leadership in the military is if they will fire on US citizens or not”. Those who will not are being removed,” Garrow wrote on his Facebook page, later following up the post by adding the man who told him is, “one of America’s foremost military heroes,” whose goal in divulging the inf

Amen to that. We live is a world where we have to work for everything we get, still believe in the principles set forth by the Founding Fathers, believe in faith and family and have faith in God, not government.
Look at how dysfunctional Washington is. Sadly I have zero percent confidence in their ability to solve the enormous problems on our horizon. Their ineptness will be the downfall of this country.
We truly do live in a different world than these elitists.

Increase in School Shootings Linked to Antidepressant Prescription Drugs
Its pretty funny how the Commies demonize the NRA. It is not some cult. It is a citizen group of gun enthusiasts across the country. These people NEVER advocate violence. In fact they believe guns in the right hands will prevent violence. Most of them want stricter enforcement of the laws and NEVER want guns to end up in the hands of criminals.
There is a real problem with the growing number of mentally ill people in this country for sure. There needs to be information on the DRUGS these shooters are using, Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs). This needs to be studied. Most of the shooters have been on these class of drugs and many of them do not even recall what they have done after the fact.
