    You're kidding, right?

    Those stats can be found in a lot of places.

    I understand, though. It's too much effort. Right? It's easier to run away from them and leave an obtuse scribble about nothing.

    Causality vs Causation comes to mind.
    Causation vs correlation
    Causation involves correlation which means that if an action causes another then they are correlated. The causation of these two correlated events or actions can be hard to establish but it is certain.

    I have half a mind to go find an original report for every one of those instances listed just to prove my point. It's only 35 (of the incidents listed anyway), I suppose.

    Really, if the op isn't genuinely interested in relevant solution and only interested in his feels, then it shouldn't be asked in the first place. It's disingenuous to frame it as such. Intellectual dishonesty at best.

    If Ido that, though, I'm starting a new thread to do it. I'm not going to put myself in a position where you guys take the opportunity to control the terms just because you started a disingenuous CDZ thread that just creates the illusion of wanting to discuss relevant solutions.

    Which solves what?

    Suicides?
    Gang violence?
    Police shootings?
    Domestics ?
    Mass shootings?

    These drugs cause their patients to be 50% more likely than those taking other treatments to be arrested for violent crime

    They are said to cause an additional 1000 to 1500 teen suicides each year

    It’s a bit more than a little problematic since most mass shooters were on them.

    Drugging brains that are not yet fully developed?

    Not a good thing to do.

    Even if the only thing it solves is making U.S. look less stupid on the world stage, I'm for it.

    My opinion remains: Requiring intensifying levels of background checking and weapons proficiency, such as proof of military service and specific training, or private classes when selling firearms would reduce "gun violence" in America.

    I think that handguns and sport rifles should require possession of a 'Gun Permit' of some sort that is issued by the state you live in which proves that you have submitted to a recent background check at least as extensive as CC permits of today are, and you've taken some courses on gun handling use and safety, which would then be recognized in all 50 states as "O.k. to travel with and buy guns nationwide".

    I think access to assault weapons, tanks and bazookas should require a few more classes and proof that you have access to a place to legally practice with it.

    Change because it feels good solves nothing. The body count remains the same.

    Now that takes a big bunch of thought.
