    One thing that the video leaves out - the metropolitan areas where the violent crime rates are so high already have the strictest gun control laws in the country.

    I post up links like that but they don't fit the aganda, so they are ignored. Most the stats I pull up are from fbi.guv or the census.guv sites.
    I research like that guy does but it's a waste of time to post any findings up on here because an opposing view already has minds made up on any given topic
    and are closed off to new info that doesn't jive with the views that may be stuck in the brains. Gun control was the last issue that comes to mind.

    If anyone should care enough to dig deeper: http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/uc...aw_enforcement_by_state_by_city_2011.xls/view

    now compare those numbers with these numbers (from the gun control HQ):
    http://www.bradycampaign.org/xshare...1_Brady_Campaign_State_Scorecard_Rankings.pdf

    I'm not promoting anything one way or another, just posting the numbers.

    Jesus Christ, they're blaming the medication now?
    They wouldn't be taking anything if they weren't already mentally ill to begin with. This is just as bad as those idiots that don't vaccinate their kids because no one understands science anymore. What a stupid fucking video.

    Wrongly prescribed and/or incompatible psychiatric meds can really mess up a messed up mind. To achieve any form of positive results with those kinds of drugs requires a lot of trial and error
    with total monitoring of the patients. The healthcare system we currently have has absolutely no priority on mental healthcare let alone adequate mental healthcare. Psychiatric drugs are not a "one-size-fits-all" thing. What works good for one person could send the next person with the exact same diagnosis completely off the deep end.
