Gun control push causing mass awakening among conservatives about psychiatric drugs

(NaturalNews) Well, Natural News has been making the connection for some time now, and it appears that, finally, other media outlets are beginning to do the same thing: Other media outlets, including the so-called conservative press - which has been reluctant to do so until recently - are reporting that many of the mass murders committed over the past 10-15 years have involved shooters who were taking, or had been taking, some sort of prescription psychotropic.

Conservative commentator Alan Caruba, in a recent blog post, noted the connection in an essay entitled, "Making Little Murderers by Prescription," in which he observed that one positive thing that could come out of the Newtown, Conn., massacre is, finally, "a national discussion of the role of various psychological medications that have been foisted on a generation or two of young Americans in the nation's schools."

More writers seeing the light

Like us, Caruba mentioned a specific class of drugs as being particularly dangerous and, perhaps, ultimately responsible: SSRIs, or Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors, which are psychotropic medications that work to alter chemical levels in the brain which impact behavior and mood.

Where you won't hear this connection made is at the White House, the New York gubernatorial statehouse, in the city council chambers of Chicago and New York City, and scores of other places where statist gun controllers are completely ignoring the connection. Rather, they are blaming the guns, gun makers and you, the honest gun-owning American.

Caruba's not the only one establishing the link between SSRIs and mass murder. Conservative columnist Harvard Ph.D Jerome R. Corsi wrote recently that dangerous psychotropics have had a role in about "90 percent of school shootings over more than a decade." He cited British psychiatrist Dr. David Healy, "a founder of RxISK.org, an independent website for researching and reporting on prescription drugs."

Corsi, who is a senior staff reporter for WorldNetDaily.com, said one of Healy's websites, ssristories.com, contains more than 4,800 reports of violence where antidepressants are mentioned. (Note: The most common SSRIs include Zoloft, Celexa, Prozac, Lexapro and Luvox. (Dis)honorable mentions include Cymbalta, Remeron, Effexor, Anafranil and Prestiq.)

Others are catching on as well. Writing in CanadaFreePress.com, American Policy Center president Tom DeWeese said, "As communities reel from one massive act of student violence after another, most recently in Newtown, Connecticut, the nation looks for answers. How many are looking at the schools themselves as the conduit through which millions of students are drugged with mind-altering drugs?"

Continuing, DeWeese cited statistics:

Today more than 7,000,000 children have been labeled, stamped and registered as permanent patients of the school system. 10 to 12 percent of all boys between the ages of six and 14 in the United States have been diagnosed as having ADD. One in every 30 Americans between the ages of five and 19 years old has a prescription for Ritalin. And the fuse burns as the "patients" sit in the classroom.

Nationally syndicated columnist and multiple No. 1 New York Times bestselling author Ann Coulter, talked about the 800-pound gorilla in the room few politicians, academics and pundits want to recognize, when framing the gun-control debate: "Consequently, whenever a psychopath with a million gigantic warning signs commits a shocking murder, the knee-jerk reaction is to place yet more controls on guns. By now, guns are the most heavily regulated product in America."

We'll continue to report on this heinous connection

Adds Healy on his website: "Antidepressants have been recognized as potential inducers of mania and psychosis since their introduction in the 1950s. Since the introduction of Prozac in December 1987, there has been a massive increase in the number of people taking antidepressants."

As we have reported in the past, at least 14 recent shootings at schools have been committed by someone taking or withdrawing from psychiatric drugs. The results are telling: 58 killed, 109 wounded.

In other school shootings, "information about their drug use was never made public - neither confirming or refuting if they were under the influence of prescribed drugs," the Citizens Commission on Human Rights International revealed.

It is well and good to see an increasing number of columnists, writers and news outlets report and discuss the connection between psychotropics and mass murder, because it's about time. There are still too few of them doing so, but rest assured that we'll continue to do our part.
