Drugs, mental conditioning of kids at fault

This horrible event in Newtown, Conn., is just too sad to believe. What must not be done is jumping to the conclusion that it was the gunís fault and getting on the gun-ban wagon.

It is not the guns that kill, it is the SSRI anti-depressant drugs and mental conditioning of these children that does. Giving these drugs to kids is like giving a 2-year-old a loaded and cocked hair-triggered gun. The outright banning of these kinds of drugs is the only way to begin to stop this murder of innocents.

Prozac, Zoloft, Luvox, Paxil and all related antidepressant drugs must be made as illegal as heroin, cocaine, amphetamines, or any other dangerous substances.

There should be harsh attachments of jail time for the distribution of this poisonous evil. I dare you to take a look at this page: www.ssristories.com/index.php, and then answer the question, what is really responsible for these senseless shootings?
