    Sounds good and all... except Trump is the one that made it easier for people with mental illness to get guns.

    Which is kind of odd, given many gun lovers argue that the number of gun deaths is skewed by the number of people that kill themselves with a gun.

    It seems as if these types of shootings really started to pick up in the 80s. I know they happened before then but were a LOT more rare. They are still fairly rare but it seems that after the 80s they started to happen more often. I wonder why that is? When did we start putting people on meds and releasing them and having this revolving door of "therapy" where they take meds for a while, stop and get sick again and then have to come back to the hospital, be restabilized on their meds for about 24 hours and then are released back into society only to end up back into the hospital after they stop their meds again?

    You are off track with this. A sane avid gun enthusiast could use thousands of rounds at the range easily without a cache of weapons. It would be to hard to track or enforce anyways. Suddenly stockpiling a ton of weapons though I can see being a red flag.

    I didn't know until today, that law enforcement only gets a red flag if a person buys two or more of certain guns at the same time. That's why Paddock spread out his purchases.

    SSRI's are fairly new and they do have a reputation of causing crazy behavior when one does not taper off. I saw it first hand with a loved one. They decided to just 'cold turkey' on the med and they turned intolerant and angry for a while. It was not pretty I can tell you. However this evil bastard (Paddock) was supposedly on Valium which, I would think, would have the opposite effect.

    I always seek out medical advice from those unqualified to give it.

    Just because he's white doesn't mean he needs a "perscribed" excuse.

    Nut or not
