Nearly all of the mass shootings are done by people on psychotropic drugs or getting off of these drugs. Prior to the 60's most of the people getting such drugs for mental disabilities were in institutions and had more supervision. Now they are free to roam throughout society as lawyers challenged the ability of institutions to keep them incarcerated once they appeared to be stabalized. We brought these shootings upon ourselves by trying to provide a kinder,gentler society. The utopiate generation that promoted this need to be held accountable. And who holds the FDA accountable for approving these drugs without the required supervision to keep others safe?
