If lawmakers and authorities are truly concerned about stopping gun violence in schools, they need to take a close look at the prescription of psychotropic drugs for children and young people, says a leading psychiatrist.
In an exclusive in-person interview in New York City with WND, London-based Dr. David Healy criticized pharmaceutical companies that have made billions of dollars marketing Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors, known as SSRIs.
Psychotropic drugs ‚Äúprescribed for school children cause violent behavior,‚ÄĚ Healy stated.
The drugs are widely used in the U.S. as antidepressants by doctors working in the mental health field and increasingly by primary care doctors, he noted....

This continued use of the term "pride" by you guys across the pond is a proverbial "strawman"
Britain does not have, nor does common sense believe, we need millions of gun shop arsenals - or military style retail outlets for machine guns - or a 'right' (need) for every tom dick and harry to bear arms, so that slaughters such as Columbine, Sandy Hook and many many others become everyday news items.
John UK wrote: A masked gunman has died after being pinned down and restrained by customers during an armed robbery at a bookmakers in Plymouth. The man, in his 50s, entered the Ladbrokes branch in Crownhill Road at 18:45 GMT on Friday wearing a gas mask and holding a pistol. Police arrested the man, who was already unconscious, but he died a short time later at the scene. ---------------- The unarmed British public do it again.
"Ivor Green, 67, also from West Park, said he was not surprised that customers had tried to defend the staff.
He said: "The staff become your friends, it's a little family, and it's no different to a member of your family being threatened. He shouldn't have been doing that in the first place."
"David Marfleet said: 'As I drove past you could see that Ladbrokes was absolutely full of policeman at that time.
"[There were] easily 10 police cars and then the ambulance that turned up on site as well.'"
It's good to know they defended themselves as necessary, in this case using the weapon known as the human body, and apparently killed the intruder. ("He died..." does sound more pleasant and civilized, though)
Fists should be registered, and fingers limited to 3 per hand, maybe?
Mike from New York, you said it better than I ever could. Thank you. Sincerely. You know mike, I'm a believer , I've had rifles for years, I never shot anything but a piece of paper with a bullseye on it. I'm sick of the rap people get for having guns because our govt would make a law abiding citizen out to be a criminal for owning them legally while criminals and gangbangers , drug dealers, and mentally I'll people obtain a weapon illegally . It sickens me, we have no say , so I have to stand up and fight
You must be a obama supporting democrat , or you just might dis like America. That's not my problem. I don't know you so how can I dislike you . Or maybe you have jealousy of America , why ? God only knows .
And most citizens who have a so called assault rifle are semi automatic. One bullet at a time. You rant and rant but you don't live here. Clean your own yard before you start sticking your nose in someone else's.
Abrit, get your facts straight. Not everyone who has a so called assault rifle intends to commit mass murder, most are law abiding citizens. How are you doing disarmed against felons and thugs and probably mentally ill people in the uk who obtain guns illegally? What's the point of answering a drone like you? Maybe you support Marxism , maybe you want the uk to be communist? I don't , and I don't like the fact that I lose a privlage because some demented person decides to hurt people. It ain't the gun , it's the person. If you don't get it now , you never will. Go head, make a comment . We are done here
