Outlawing the devices that microwave bad thoughts into peoples heads would be far more effective.

Another Mentally Defective dude on psychiatric drugs shoots a bunch of people in yet another gun-free zone.
Guess he didn't see the sign.

Funny how the common man can see the pattern, but those in DC who "know how to run our lives better than we do" can't figure it out.
HEADLINE: Media Buries Psychiatric Drug Connection to Navy Shooter
"Despite every indication that Navy Yard shooter Aaron Alexis was on SSRI drugs that have been linked to dozens of previous mass shootings, the mainstream media has once again avoided all discussion of the issue, preferring instead to blame the tragedy on a non-existent AR-15 that the gunman didn’t even use.
We now know that Alexis “had been treated since August by the Veterans Administration for his mental problems.”"

"As Mike Adams points out, “This is proof that Aaron Alexis was on psychiatric drugs, because that’s the only treatment currently being offered by the Veterans Administration for mental problems. Alexis’ family members also confirmed to the press that he was being “treated” for his mental health problems. Across the medical industry, “treatment” is the code word for psychiatric drugging.”"
Report: Armed Emergency Response Team Ordered to Stand Down at Navy Yard as Shooting Started
"On Wednesday, BBC News reported that an armed emergency response team arrived on site at the Washington Navy Yard within minutes of Aaron Alexis beginning his shooting spree, but was forced to stand down and was instead ordered back to Capitol Hill. "

As any decent American knows, there is no feeling more powerless than to realize that a couple of mass murderers are loose in your neighborhood and you are denied the right to keep a gun to defend yourself, your family or your home. A sickening knot tightens in your gut.
“Do not take action.”
Then came the latest Orwellian phrase in the “homeland security” lexicon: “Shelter in place!” So, not only are you not allowed to defend yourself against mass murderers, you are not supposed to run from them, either.
This, my fellow countrymen, is pure insanity.
And all the terror and real bloody carnage took place inside the most impenetrable fortress of gun-control utopia.

The very guns Aaron Alexis used to kill 12 people are banned in this city, unless you submit to an exhaustive, invasive and expensive process and prove to the city bureaucracy that you are worthy of your Second Amendment rights. Clearly, that failed.
We now know that Alexis was run through the normal background checks already in place to purchase a gun from a gun dealer. He submitted to even more exhaustive background checks to get his job and access to the Navy Yard. All of those background checks, and he still massacred 12 people.

The following & two posts below were written by...
CHARES HURT, September 17, 2013: "Defenselessly ‘sheltered’ as anti-gun fortress is breached" For those of us foolish enough to live in a crime-gripped city that summarily denies our constitutional right to protect ourselves, this week's massacre at the Washington Navy Yard pretty well sums up our insane, defenseless existence.
Our Capitol Hill neighborhood drowned in the screams of sirens as police cars, vans, trucks and armored vehicles streaked through the narrow streets at deadly speeds. The skies filled with the constant whopping of countless helicopters.
Just back from dropping off children at school, neighbors began frantically calling, texting and emailing one another to see what was wrong. The crisp morning reminded many of Sept. 11, 2001...
And like everything else kozy.
What is your answer.Like most just ***** and complain. Don't worry. Just like newtown everything will be forgotten and back to normal until the next one.

The worst part about all of this is the war on terror. Modern day terrorism is designed to bankrupt us. The same way it did the Soviet Union. While we build up a huge military and massive "national security" forces, we run up massive debt. This is why recently al-Qaeda's top brass called for sporadic, spontaneous strikes in the US designed to create more economic chaos in our already unstable market. The idea that we must allow the government to protect us, when they fail to do so time and time again, is killing us both physically and economically. Every time something like this happens, millions of dollars are spent and security is tightened. These domestic cases essentially create the same atmosphere as a terrorist attack and the problem is then compounded. The Founders realized how important an armed citizenry was, especially economically. Yet a lot of people see this the opposite way, more spending, more security, less freedom. It has never worked and it never

The fact that people with military clearances, whether civilians or not, can't carry weapons is completely asinine. They swear an oath to defend us and the Constitution from both foreign and domestic enemies. It's tough to defend against domestic enemies when you can't be armed. Police swear that oath and we have no problem with them carrying guns. There is so much backwards thinking in this country. Every time something like this happens and I see the reaction, I lose a little more hope in the people.
People want to talk about the non existent AR-15, but we never talk about SSRI drugs or how people are slipping through the cracks of our enormously expensive security systems when they've been red flagged for various things. It happens time and time again and all we get are stupid questions like this poll question. Think a little deeper, why do we continually refuse to acknowledge the real problems and the real facts of these cases as a whole?

There are clearly some forces at work that make that happen and twist the conversation that way. We have to start asking why. Not just arguing with the people who are talking about a non existent AR-15 and point out the facts to them. We have to start dissecting the reasons why we aren't paying attention to the real problems and the connectable dots between MANY of these mass shootings.

As far as the supposed SSRI and mass shooters connection goes, approximately 120 Milllion people are prescribed SSRI drugs a year in this country. How many mass shootings are there a year? Do the numbers. Serious mental illness connection, yes, but common antidepressants, the numbers just don't add up.

"As far as the supposed SSRI and mass shooters connection goes, approximately 120 Milllion people are prescribed SSRI drugs a year in this country. How many mass shootings are there a year? Do the numbers."
One of the stated side effects of the commonly used drugs is violent or suicidal behavior.
Obviously, not all people will experience this side effect and kill people. That doesn't negate the fact that all these mass murders have been committed by people on or withdrawing from these drugs.
