I'm so sick of the selfishness of so many. Those cries of "they're trying to take MY guns away" & "I don't want to pay for healthcare, it's unconsitutional". In the meantime, shit like this keeps happening: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/01/30/alabama-school-bus-hostage-situation_n_2578775.html. I mean seriously, god forbid, gun laws be tighted to help try to stop such occurences. Or taxes be raised to pay for a mental health care over-all in the US, which is beyond beyond needed.

I think it is more publicised because they want to get rid of guns. It is to satisfy and agenda. How many people are stabbed to death each day, how many people are beaten to death each day. Every incident does not make it on tv, it would be impossible. Just because you get rid of guns, does not = safety.

Between 2004 and 2011, there have been over 11,000 reports to the U.S. FDA MedWatch system of psychiatric drug side effects related to violence. Of the 31 people who committed acts of violence that were documented to be under the influence of psychiatric drugs, ten were seeing either a psychiatrist or psychologist. We all know this also cause of the increased awareness of the mental disorders. But nobody has thought of what these psychiatric drugs do to our kids when given to at a young age. Here is the website that will tell you about any drug that may have or not contributed to the school shooting/violence. It will opne the eyes of a ew who do bother to read this link...These info also includes shooting at schools in other countries.
