More Mass Shootings Again. Sigh. (Were the Shooters on Psychiatric Drugs?)

Why do we have to go over this stuff again? So, this guy shot and killed 8 people in various spas a.k.a. massage parlors in Atlanta, Georgia. Some of the victims were Asian and some people want him charged with “hate crimes.” I’m not going to address that aspect here, only the latest calls for gun control, and the psychiatric aspects.

And then a guy shot and killed 10 people at a supermarket in Boulder, Colorado.

The two suspects of both shootings are both age 21. The guy in Boulder has a history of bad temper, aggression and violence, and “paranoia and mental illness,” according to his brother, and was apparently known not to local law enforcement but to the FBI. The guy in Atlanta shooting up the massage parlors supposedly had a severe “sex addiction.”

First, the gun control issue. The only people that gun control laws affect are law-abiding people, because they obey the law. Criminals do not obey the law. Duh.

Someone who obviously doesn’t care that assaulting, shooting or killing people is illegal is not going to obey laws regarding guns (or anything else for that matter). I don’t know why gun control advocates can’t grasp that fact.

Violent gun-related crime is high in the strictest gun control states and cities. Look at Chicago. So gun control laws don’t work. Why? Because criminals who are going to shoot and kill others don’t obey the law! Duh.

Why do gun control advocates want to disarm law-abiding people and make them defenseless? Why do the people on the left want only government police (or military) to be armed, but law-abiding citizens to be unarmed and defenseless?

At the spas in Atlanta and the supermarket in Boulder, had just one person at one of those places been armed, that person could have disabled the shooter early in the shooting incident, and saved lives.

The other aspect of all this is how Big Pharma plays a role in these young people being violent, based on the history of these shootings and killings in recent decades. The Atlanta shooter was being treated for “sex addiction,” supposedly. And I want to know if he has been taking psychiatric drugs such as the SSRI antidepressants, anti-anxiety or anti-psychotic drugs. The same for the Boulder shooter who supposedly has a history of “paranoia,” violence and “mental illness.”

You see, the reason why mainstream news media won’t touch the aspect of psychiatric drugs and violence is because the mainstream news media are generally a bunch of shills for the pharmaceutical industry. Like the general U.S. sheeple, the news media have this indoctrinated blind faith in Establishment medicine and pharma drugs, despite the damage they all do.

And at this point I would like to repost a post I had done before that includes quotes from some of my previous posts on these issues, because I don’t have time to write more now.

Here is the earlier post from January of 2018 (sorry if some links no longer work):

School Shootings, the Hysterical Gun-Grabbers, and Psychiatric Drugs

(January 25, 2018) There was yet another school shooting that left two kids dead and injured several more, this time in Kentucky. But rather than insisting that “gun-free zone” laws be repealed, irrational hystericals like former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords want to strengthen the gun control laws.

In his attempt to revive Ron Paul’s bill to repeal the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990, Congressman Thomas Massie wrote, according to Reason, “Gun-free school zones are ineffective. They make people less safe by inviting criminals into target-rich, no-risk environments … Gun-free zones prevent law-abiding citizens from protecting themselves, and create vulnerable populations that are targeted by criminals.”

It’s only common sense.

And it’s only a matter of time that we hear about this week’s Kentucky school shooter having been on Xanax or some antidepressant or one of those combined with pain killers. There have been too many of them now.

In this post, I wrote,

As I noted before, the South Carolina church shooter, Dylan Storm Roof, was on the benzodiazepine anti-anxiety drug Xanax and the pain killer Suboxone. (Another well-known benzodiazepine drug is Valium.) Suboxone is a dangerous drug known to cause violent outbursts.

Last year’s Santa Barbara college shooter, Elliot Rodger, was on Xanax and the pain killer Vicodin.

The Aurora Colorado theater shooter James Holmes was taking the SSRI antidepressant Zoloft and the anti-anxiety drug Clonazepam. (Other SSRI drugs include Prozac and Paxil.)

The Germanwings Airlines co-pilot Andreas Lubitz who took down his plane and mass-murdered 144 people had been on Lorazepam, an anti-anxiety drug, as well as an unnamed antidepressant.

And Columbine High School shooter Eric Harris had been on Luvox, an SSRI anti-depressant also used to treat obsessive-compulsive disorder and anxiety disorders.

While it was not officially confirmed that Sandy Hook School shooter Adam Lanza had been on psychiatric drugs, a parents rights organization sued the state of Connecticut to release Lanza’s medical records, but the request was denied “because ‘it would cause a lot of people to stop taking their medications’.” I guess that answers that question.

And Dr. Peter Breggin, a psychiatrist who has testified several times before Congress on these issues, speculates that Nidal Hasan, the 2009 Fort Hood shooter who apparently was a military psychiatrist, was in all likelihood “self-medicating” with psychiatric drugs.

And in this more recent post, I wrote,

A major study released last year showed that antidepressants can increase the risk of suicide. Some common antidepressants include Zoloft, Luvox, Celexa, Prozak, and Paxil…

Among antidepressant possible side effects are the worsening of the user’s depression, or causing an increase in stress or anxiety. In some cases, antidepressants can actually cause someone to be depressed.

According to psychiatrist Dr. Peter Breggin, antidepressants have been shown to cause long-term depression and other side effects.

Dr. Breggin has published this series on the Michelle Carter case. That’s the teen who was recently convicted of “texting her boyfriend into committing suicide.” Dr. Breggin’s series is quite extensive on that whole case. According to Dr. Breggin, who gave expert testimony at that trial, Ms. Carter and her late boyfriend had been taking prescription antidepressants for years up to that terrible moment. Dr. Breggin considers them both “victims of psychiatry.”

Dr. Breggin has also written on the hazards of prescribing Ritalin to children diagnosed with ADHD, and has written on the misdiagnosing of children, noting how anti-ADHD drugs have been shown to stunt kids’ growth and cause brain shrinkage, among other problems. (Here is Dr. Breggin’s informative page on children and psychiatric drugs.)

Dr. Breggin has also noted how pharmaceutical companies’ marketing strategies have pointed them toward the U.S. armed forces, some of whose members are taking dangerous combinations of drugs, and in which the suicide rate of servicemen is at an all-time high. According to military psychologist Col. Bart Billings, the military psychiatrists “have no clue about what they’re doing.” (So reassuring, isn’t it?)

Incidentally, if someone wanted to stop taking antidepressants, to prevent dangerous withdrawal symptoms see Dr. Breggin’s book on psychiatric drug withdrawal, Psychiatric Drug Withdrawal: A Guide for Prescribers, Therapists, Patients and Their Families.

Besides those kinds of drugs poisoning the kids and stunting their physical, emotional and intellectual growth, there are also vaccines (and too many of them), the harmful chemicals in processed foods and food dyes, and harmful street drugs.

Melissa Melton wrote in this article that, “Of the top ten prescription drugs linked to violence toward others, a 2010 study based on FDA adverse reaction data show that five were antidepressants and two were for the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).” And she quoted from a Facebook post that gun manufacturer John Noveske wrote shortly before he died in a (suspicious?) car crash, a full list of youths who had killed or hurt someone and the particular psychiatric drug the killers were taking:

Jeff Weise, age 16, had been prescribed 60 mg/day of Prozac (three times the average starting dose for adults!) when he shot his grandfather, his grandfather’s girlfriend and many fellow students at Red Lake, Minnesota. He then shot himself. 10 dead, 12 wounded.

Cory Baadsgaard, age 16, Wahluke (Washington state) High School, was on Paxil (which caused him to have hallucinations) when he took a rifle to his high school and held 23 classmates hostage. He has no memory of the event.

Chris Fetters, age 13, killed his favorite aunt while taking Prozac.

Christopher Pittman, age 12, murdered both his grandparents while taking Zoloft.

Mathew Miller, age 13, hung himself in his bedroom closet after taking Zoloft for 6 days.

Kip Kinkel, age 15, (on Prozac and Ritalin) shot his parents while they slept then went to school and opened fire killing 2 classmates and injuring 22 shortly after beginning Prozac treatment.

Luke Woodham, age 16 (Prozac) killed his mother and then killed two students, wounding six others.

And there are quite a few more on the list.

So why is it, after all this time that we have known that most of the school shooters (and many otherwise killers, assaulters, murderous reckless drivers, etc.) in the past 20 years have been drugged up not on hard drugs or street drugs but prescription psychiatric drugs, that the media still refuse to report on it? Are news media outlets that dependent on Big Pharma for ads?

But instead of addressing the real causes of these violent episodes, the hystericals want to disarm law-abiding, peaceful people and make them defenseless. WHY?

So I will quote further from my earlier linked post on all this, especially regarding the gun control hystericals out there:

Will the mainstream media zombies ever begin to report on these important aspects of the mass shootings of the past 20 years or so? When I was growing up, there were no school shootings. At least, none that I can remember ever hearing about. There was the Kent State massacre, but that was the government shooting and murdering innocent students. Government goons don’t need psychiatric drugs to make it easier for them to kill people. They’re the government!

And when I was growing up, there was no “ADHD” or “Asperger’s,” i.e. made-up labels to stick to kids just for acting like normal kids. And there was no Adderall, no Ritalin, no Xanax. The top 12 deadliest mass shootings in U.S. history begin in 1966.

Besides these mass killers not controlling their emotions and aggression as normal people do, there is also the cultural aspect to this violence. American culture is now one of immediacy, distraction, and narcissism. And as Butler Shaffer and Jacob Hornberger observed, perhaps one reason why these mass shootings happen more in the United States and not in most other countries is that our government is the one government mainly that starts wars of aggression against other countries, occupies foreign lands and acts with impunity against foreigners. The American government police are also notorious now for their criminal violence against innocents. These criminal acts of aggression by government goons against foreigners and against the bureaucrats’ own fellow Americans are now being seen, especially by the young, as implicit acceptance of violence.

But rather than looking at these actual causes of these shootings, especially the psychiatric drugs, the mainstream media instead promote the government-imposed gun control agenda!

Yeah, how’s that “Gun Free Zone” stuff working out at Sandy Hook, and this week in Oregon, and at Fort Hood? You see, all you gun control robots out there, when you impose legal restrictions on guns, those who actually obey the law will obey those laws. The criminals, however, who don’t obey laws against murder, rape, robbery, and assault, obviously will not obey the gun laws! Why can’t the anti-gun people understand that? I wonder if they really just like the idea of disarming innocent people, and making innocent people defenseless. Including people deemed “mentally ill.” (But who is to decide who has “mental illness“? All those mentally ill bureaucrats in Washington? All those idiot psychiatrists and primary care “doctors” prescribing those life-destroying drugs like candy? But I digress.) Eventually, those people who disagree with the Regime and criticize the Bureaucracy will be diagnosed by the government psychiatrists as “mentally ill”!

No, it just makes the gun-grabbers feel good to see that they are taking away guns from peaceful, law-abiding people. But one thing the emotion-driven control freaks don’t like to acknowledge is that all tyrannical government regimes disarm the population as a way to strengthen and expand the bureaucrats’ own power and control. The Nazis disarmed the Jews to make it easier to murder them, by the way, as discussed in this book on Gun Control in the Third Reich by Stephen Halbrook. Yet, when we who understand history bring up these points against gun control, the gun-grabbing fanatics scoff at it, like we’re the irrational ones!
