Response to green for victory (Reply #30)

Tue Jan 15, 2013, 07:00 AM

31. My only point is this--there are a number of "points of similarity."

Not just one. It's not all about the drugs, or all about the peer interaction, or all about the parenting or the videogames or camo clothing or what-have-you.

I don't discount the influence of medication on a person for whom the medication is inappropriate to the condition.

That said, there's a perfect storm that produces these events, and that perfect storm includes a number of other factors, and it also includes access to the weapons used to do the deed.

I am not a user of these medications, but I suspect those that are, and who have no inclination to shoot up a school, might be a bit put off by an assertion by Forbes Magazine or any other publication that "If a person takes X drug, they're likely to shoot their classmates."

That's what is driving the agita of some, I surmise.
