    Read more at The giant, gaping hole in Sandy Hook reporting

    A very interesting read. The article talks about numerous mass shootings by both children and adults and points out that in many cases, the perpetrator was on, or recently had been on psychiatric medications.

    Seeing as how Big Pharma wants all Americans on at least one prescription drug then yeah, we should be controlling the drugs.

    The Drugs and Big Pharma are the problem.

    Psychiatric drugs have their place. Some people are actually able to function pretty much normally on them, but patients on them should be evaluated OFTEN and their access to firearms restricted if they are judged to be a danger to themselves or others.

    I am not saying anyone on a mood altering drug should loose their 2nd Amendment rights, as there are valid reasons to prescribe these drugs to otherwise rational people.

    It's sad that we live in a society where we have to question whether psychiatric medication "needs to be controlled." Unfortunately, people misappropriate social stigma upon psychiatric medicine and mental health...Sad.

    These pstchotropic drugs cause mental illness..they cause murder and suicide and all scientific evidence shows they are no more effective that a placebo

    This is a failure of a post. Do you want actual research to look over?

    In certain instances people who are on sedatives or "psychotropic" medication are also in counseling sessions. This isn't simply popping a pill and hope for the best. There is a lot of monitoring by the psychologist/psychiatrist. People need to stop making baseless claims.
