    There might be some level of contributing pharmacological effect in some situations where a subject is troubled by an existing psychological disorder, but the notion that drugs, either alone or predominantly, are responsible for these psychotic episodes is extreme. If it were true, considering the volume of these prescriptions issued every day there would be substantially more bursts of murderous rage than we have seen.

    Nice deflection. It's not the drugs.

    I've been on psychotropic medication since I've been 13. Between then and now, I've raised three daughters while single, gone to college and graduated with a degree and have been rather successful in the work field. I've never had any homicidal urges.

    I spent half my life before antidepressants were around. Something WRONG with me that I couldn't be happy like everyone else. Shrinks suggested shock therapy, lithium, you name it. I politely said no. The antidepressants once they came along made a huge difference.

    I have access to guns, and I've never had any homicidal urges.
