    I read this article yesterday and had planned to post it here today. I am sick of the "guns kill people" phrase... so I found this article very interesting. I mean, of course, it's not the pills killing people... but obviously these pills do play into a many of these horrific incidents.

    I do believe that some kids are hyper-active... and some people do have chemical imbalances. BUT... these medications are given out entirely too frequently!!!

    I think that anyone who has been declared "mentally ill" or anyone who is on these types of drugs should not be allowed to purchase a weapon.

    That's just my opinion though...

    Many people take anti-depressants for many reasons. One for instance is for the prevention of migraines. That doesn't have anything to do with your state of mind.

    And more more thing, I almost want to scream everytime I hear one of those news people call a mag a clip. :x

    In another posting,

    somewhere here at GCO,

    earlier today,

    one of our own,

    one of our very own,

    one whom we all look upon with reverence bordering on near-worship,

    yeah,

    that one

    called a mag a clip.






    No. I'm not mentioning any names, but I tell you I was shocked. Yes, SHOCKED!!! when I saw it.

    Gasp! The horror of it all... The only solution I can see is to start Happy Hour early today.

    Drugs don't make people kill.
    Guns don't make people kill.
    Spoons don't make Rosie fat.

    Yeah, and one more point on medicated A.D.D. Kids. Put them in front of a playstation and see how bad their A.D.D. is...

    Amen! After being home-schooled, I know how easy it is to get distracted... but I also remember what Daddy's belt felt like to my poor little rump! I'm guessing that about 1% of the kids on those medications truly need it... the rest just need to be taken behind the wood shed.

    I disagree. Some perscription drugs can have side effects or interactions that can make people "crazy."

    IMO, people are still responsible for their actions, regardless of what chemicals are present in their system.

    Strong perscription drugs can transcend this. People can and do loose total control on strong perscription drugs, if a gun happened to be present and they shot someone, they wouldn't be responsible.

    THEY SHOULD BE!!! Why would you take strong prescription drugs that are known to make you lose control when there are GUNS around?!?!?

    I mean, me and my friends take drugs and then shoot each other and we've never gotten in trouble, but come on... those are just .22s... nothing big. :^o
