Nearly Every Mass Shooting In The Last 20 Years Shares One Thing In Common, & It’s NOT Weapons

Nearly every mass shooting incident in the last twenty years, and multiple other instances of suicide and isolated shootings all share one thing in common, and its not the weapons used.

The overwhelming evidence points to the signal largest common factor in all of these incidents is the fact that all of the perpetrators were either actively taking powerful psychotropic drugs or had been at some point in the immediate past before they committed their crimes.

Multiple credible scientific studies going back more then a decade, as well as internal documents from certain pharmaceutical companies that suppressed the information show that SSRI drugs ( Selective Serotonin Re-Uptake Inhibitors ) have well known, but unreported side effects, including but not limited to suicide and other violent behavior. One need only Google relevant key words or phrases to see for themselves. www.ssristories.com is one popular site that has documented over 4500 “ Mainstream Media “ reported cases from around the World of aberrant or violent behavior by those taking these powerful drugs.

    OH…I thought it was gonna be the fact that they’re all liberal democrats…or kids thereof!!!

    • Cincitiger

      They were drugged by liberal DemocRATs who made them psychotic and murderous.

    • John Detwiler

      Well it’s a known fact that liberal thinking is maniac.

    • tom cook

      That’s it Phil: that is the commonality. Sorry I did not read your post before posting.

    • Patricia McGehee

      Most likely their parents were liberal and the kids were conservative so the kids were put on drugs.

    • gdoggerz

      I’m sure they came from nice liberal households with no rules, no boundaries…just drugs to make the kids “behave” and make mommy’s and daddy’s lives easier.

    • Rattlerjake

      It’s a known fact that conservatives don’t go around murdering innocent people. You probably couldn’t find a handful in a prison. Liberals lie, cheat, steal, and murder, it’s part of their ‘religion’.

      • sandman

        Calling their behavior a “religion” is demeaning to the word, lets call it something wrong with their brains instead, ok? every “srink” I have known, is a nice person, but a flaming liberal, and they all have a need for drugs, as they all have what they themselves call a chemical unbalance, so instead of just using discipline, guidance and in some cases love and patience, they are insted lazy, and turn to what is the scurge of society, drugs! then when there are a number of instances on record, of these misguided folks turning to violence, and in turn use a weapon of convenience, and we all know how it turns out in every instance. OH no! it could never be the professional drug dealers (Dr. Srink) fault, no! we all have to blame an object of convenience, gun, knife or club, as they are an easy target, that cannot defend themselves like the Dr.’s and Lawyers are able to, along with the very deep pockets of the phamo industry!

    • conservative

      Being liberal democrats is side effect of taking the drugs.

  • CrustyOldGeezer

    They nearly 100% share the same political philosophies and ideologies.

    They are the faces of liberalism and nearly every one had exhibited physiological problems before setting out to become famous for murdering the most children in a school/ the most people in a shopping mall/ the most people at a college/ or (take your pick of locations).

    They know that their name will become famous and the most talked about person on TV for months on end.

    • TeaParty Patriot (TTP)

      The most common and most easily verifyable link is the political philosophy of the perpetrators they have all been militant leiberal/regressives but the MSM refuses to see the writing on the wall
      Maybe if we eliminated the guiness book of world records and eliminate liberalism we would eliminate the incentive for mass killings

      • CrustyOldGeezer

        Point of clarity.

        The shooters were trained by the same people that trained the MSM bunch.

      • gdoggerz

        The MSM wants these events to happen so does the white house…more tragedies means more headlines for the MSM and less freedoms for the rest of us. They know the drugs are bad just like high fructose corn syrup!

    • mtman2

      You still have to way cross over a line most people never even come to. There probably is NO coming back from the darkness one would have to ‘walk in’ to reach the final place when these people give themselves over to Demonic forces + slaughter innocent human life. Absolute Godlessness is a precursor to these kind of actions.

    SAY WHAT EVER YOU WANT TO BUT THE TRUE FACT REMAINS THEY ARE ALL DEMOCRATS OR LIBO’S AS THEY NEED TO BE REFEREED TO

    • http://Yahoo.com victorbarney

      What about Marxists(Anti-Christ’s), almost totally supported by women & blacks, or our nation’s “gatherer’s?” Just sayting, welcome to adam’s world before the 1st murderer was ever born! Again, I’m just saying, what is true is true! Statistically, within the standard error of measurement 100% of muderer’s are committed by about 2 1/2% of our population, who tend to be black & sponsored by other “gatherer’s!” Statistics are true folks! They(statistics) usually are misrepresented, but nonetheless, TRUE! Again, I’m just saying…Watch for the sudden appearance of the two-witnesses of Revelation, chapter 11 one of these soon coming FALL(October 5th, 2013) Annual feast of trumpets(war)??? Also I’m just repeating what’s already been written…

    • mtman2

      I call ’em lib/progs=[liberal/progressives]

  • pduffy

    Don’t forget “fast and furious” and all of the wars that have resulted in “mass murder” – all have one thing in common – liberal politicians and their policies.

    • mtman2

      If you couldn’t see the wrong in killing babies, where would that mindset end? No conscience= no conscience!

  • Gary Thomsen

    So prescribing pre-teens behavior modifying drugs because they are acting like pre-teens has a long term negative effect? Gee whiz, whoda thunk it? Parents and teachers need to suck it up and realize that children will mimic what they see. That includes violent behavior on TV (including news shows and reality shows) and immature behavior by older children and adults around them (including parents and teachers). You plant roses, you get roses; you plant weeds, you get weeds.

    • gdoggerz

      Amen! We reap what we sow!

  • Berzrkr50

    The saddest thing about this list is that they were probably put on these drugs at the request of the public school system and/or teachers! They want calm, compliant little lumps that don’t cause any trouble and look at what they get! It’s too bad that teachers/educators like this can’t be charged as drug pushers!

    • mtman2

      Maybe GW, Lincoln, TR,G-Patton, MLK, Einstein + who knows were also a little too playful, hence would today be put on psychotropic drugs by those U mentioned. Easy solutions not involving dedicated teaching -w/loving time+discipline real educators live for. We all had both kinds, which do wish for UR children? The NEA foments this self-centered mentality + it ain’t about the children!!!

    • gdoggerz

      Don’t forget re-programmable.

  • jerrycollie

    They all target a gun-free zone.

  • mesaman

    Some of us have been pointing to the SSRI’s for years now but liberals are able to filter out any factual evidence from their brains if it conflicts with what they have been brainwashed to believe.

  • TexanForever29

    Gimme a break! I’ve been on SSRI’s for over 20 years, and I’ve NEVER ONCE opened fire on innocent people. Taking SSRI’s (except for Prozac, which didn’t agree with me at all) has been a very good thing for me. They don’t work for everybody, but they certainly were a God-send for me. Blame the shooter….not SSRI’s. Put the blame where it belongs!

    • Deidre

      Then you can consider yourself lucky. The article never said EVERYONE on these drugs is going to get violent, just that it is a very common problem that remains unreported and yes, pretty much all the mass shooters (or even the ones who “only” kill one or two people) were by and large on some kind of this type of drug. The drug companies often hide side effects that they know about just to get a drug approved. Again, I’m glad they work for you but they are handed out like candy when what is usually needed is a good kick in the butt, some responsibility for one;s actions and maybe some talk therapy, out in the woods or on a ranch, hard work, gardening, working with animals, etc, I think that would work a lot better. Oh yes, and the ability and desire of parents to actually BE parents! too many have abdicated that responsibility so the kids sit in front of the electronic babysitter, play all kinds of horrific games and go AWOL mentally, not all of course, but enough for it to be quite a problem. Many of the best adjusted, polite and smart kids I have met were home schooled, not on psychotropic drugs and had a good sense of self.

    • gdoggerz

      Sorry your one data point does not make the argument any less real!

    • sandman

      Nobody said everyone!, but the facts remain that everyone who has done these evil deeds, has had some history with the drugs! either legal or not! You had the good fortune to get to one of the good Dr.’s and get help with the proper drug, but that is the exception to the rule! I have a niece that has “problems” and she has to be “medicated”, and it seems to be of some help, and there is a true problem with her, so the family is gratefull, but we are all afraid, or at the least worried about her in latter adult life. Those like yourself are the ones that do need and get help, but we are talking about those who “use” the system, or have no self discipline, or seem to need some help, and instead of giving them the help they realy need, the teachers and Dr.’s use the “easy” wasy for these folks, when it was not in fact drugs that were needed, but just good old fasioned love and understanding, and time taken to care for them in the right way!

  • warpsix

    Not surprised by this . The drug makers bare a lot of responsibility in This. However the Democrats Don’t believe in Responsibility be it personal or corporate .

    • m2

      Well sometimes they do, but it depends on which of the trial looyahs you get. Be sure to get the ones with the best polished tassels on their shoes, they are the slip and fall looyahs keeping the Capitalist-job-creators out of business as best they can.

    • gdoggerz

      They believe in corporate responsibility if the corporation is run by conservatives and they want to destroy it!

  • Bob Martin

    Psychiatry is a pseudoscience and those quacks should NEVER be allowed to prescribe any type of drug, psychotropic or otherwise! Everyone I’ve known who was under one of these quacks’ care were victims of a “let’s try this med and see if it works” treatment…

    • gdoggerz

      I wouldn’t even call it a pseudoscience. They are pushers for the drug industry!

  • Nikita63

    I have been saying this for years and that it was the CAUSE of many, if not most of thiese heinous incidents but, neither the president notr the media will heed the advice of medical experts when it does NOT fit their agenda to disarm law abiding American citizens and force the UN Small Arms Treaty on us, effectively ending our 2nd Amendment rights. UN law has NO authority here in our domestic affairs, none at all and those who try to amend that haven’t the right either in contravention of all constitutional principle. It is almost a certainty that if they try, there will be massive unrest and resistance. Perhpas that is why Russian soldiers are being supposedly trained oin THIS country!

  • Lucky3511

    These are probably Obama’s drug of choice. That could possibly explain his terrible record, his hiding all facts about himself and his disregard for all the laws of the USA. Impeach him now, the investigations will show many interesting facts about this enemy of USA.

  • JOHN T. FOX

    I THOUGHT IT WAS PEOPLE!

  • tom cook

    More significant is that everyone of these cowardly shooters came from liberal families and in most cases were registered democrats. There is something very twisted about the liberal mind.

  • Sinatra98

    Washington don’t see it like that penalize the honest citizen for the kooky ones.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1323487444 C.P. Lund

    The fact that these nuts WERE either liberal democrats or related to liberal democrats is a given but with the added threat of drug interactions with the already limited mental capacity of the liberal mindset which is a known mental disorder AND the hate filled agenda of the liberals you knowwhat the out had to be.
    You may think that I’m being facetious but I am not. I have seen the hatred that these people have when I or someone else has proven them wrong in their ideas and rhetoric. These people are ready to kill out of the anger they feel.
    One only has to watch the television and listen to all of the warnings they put out as a warning about the side effects of these new drugs that they are selling to the people.
    Big Pharma and the military industrial complex must be stopped. One is killing us at home with their poison and the other is killing our best boys in some far off country whose political outcome has no bearing on our world here in America just so they can make money from the weaponry they manufacture. Somebody is getting rich at the expence of the lives of our boys.

    • sandman

      I can agree with everything you say, but one, there are a lot more than a “somebody” that is getting filthy rich! there are many who are getting filthy rich! in the truest sense of the word filthy!

  • Ron

    Well now, then we should ban all drugs, not weapons. Seeing as how it was the drugs that made them do it and the fact that they were democrats or the children of democrats then we should also ban all democrats.

    • Dan Stewart

      I know you’re being sarcastic, but, to me it seems like a good idea.

    • gdoggerz

      Ban all leftists too.

  • https://www.facebook.com/app_scoped_user_id/100001684077909/ Fam Dtstld

    It is no surprise that all shooters were addicted to some form of psychotic drugs as that’s how we treat these kids today rather than working with them and teaching responsibility, self respect,accountability, control and the willingness to deal with life’s many challenges WITHOUT POPPING A PILL! Doctors and scientists really don’t know the long term effect of these pills however they should be closely studied BEFORE prescribing them as an answer to the problerms associated with growing up.

  • jb80538

    Frankly we, as a society, were better off without all the psych drugs on the market. We could also put somene in an institution when they were not safe to be in public, either as a threat to themselves or to society.

  • gutterfalcon

    All Republicans, Tea Party members, Pro-Gun People etc. already know all this. Why is it that Democrats, Progressives, Liberals Don’t seem to know about this, or Never find out or learn of this ? Or they just choose to over look and sweep this under the carpet. Ummm Socialism, Propaganda ? The Socialists’ Most important, and dire cause, First To Dis-Arm the Population !

    • Hawker1

      You’re a tad behind, Falcon. Disarmament is the last step, not the first. First was the schools. Takeover was begun in the ’30s, completed in the’60s. Then came the churches….begun immediately after WWI, almost completed today. Third came the media. Takeover began in the ’60s….you can see the results right now, yourself. Self defense is all we have left and it will soon follow the rest. Rabble rats such as the Aryan Nation’s killers are well on their way toward forcing even local authorities to join the “Progressive” movement to strip the citizenry of their 2nd Amendment rights. I don’t know where we go from here, but it’s not a pretty picture.

  • m2

    Big Pharma doesn’t care. Why should they care if people are gunning themselves down in the street while mis-medicated? After all, they should just all be gathered up on stretchers and ambulances and hauled to the nearest ER. Right Big Pharma?

  • The Old Man

    Has anyone ever looked into why so many of our young people are in need of these awful drugs.
    I personally feel it has to do with all the mandatory shots we have to give our very young now-a-days.
    Some may be necessary, but not all…. and the CDC and other powerful agencies like Big Pharma are forcing them upon us.
    I am an old man and we never had this kind of a problem when I was young and of course we didn’t have to get all these shots. I remember small pox vaccinations and the polio cube… that’s about it.
    Our generation seem to not have all the mental illnesses that we seem to have today.
    Back to WHY.. I said what i think it is… but then I am just an old man.

    • sandman

      The realy problem in not so much the drugs today, as the way they are being used, instead, when you were raised, if you were disrespectful, or step out of line, you were disciplined, but today you can not do that! oh no! we have drugs for that! and also, back when you and I were raised, one income was enough, and Mom could stay home, but not today! it is so hard to get by on one income today, both parents are at work, and that leaves the children at home alone, or with someone else. What is all boils down to, is there is no more discipline and respect anymore! and they say the answer is drugs from a Dr.!!!

  • m2

    Well in order to be a libtard one would have to believe in TONS of things that make no sense and/or conflict with one another. E.g. registered guns are somehow bad but black criminal gang members with illegal/stolen guns are ok. Or, religion is bad but Mohammed’s religion of peace is ok. I think eventually even with some of the DUM-est ones, that have been realllllllllly DUMM’d down by the DUM skool system, it eventually causes some major psychological conflicts. So I am not terribly surprised at this actually.

  • auhunter

    I’ve been posting that fact in my comments on gun control and these shootings for months. Maybe somebody with a little clout finally got the message. My Congressional rep’s sure didn’t. I was a lone wolf howling in the dark. They’re the first thing a doctor or psychiatrist reaches for to control erratic behavior in kids. Next time you watch TV, pay attention to the commercials. It’s amazing how many drugs have this potential in kids and young adults, even older adults for that matter. Another little known fact, recently published in medical journals, 80% of medications, OTC or prescribed only work on 30% of the patients.

  • Herman

  • hangman57

    They must be all Liberal Democrats. They have some F———————-d up minds.

    • sandman

      It is sorry to say Chuck, but true! and these are the prof. and such, that are teaching the leaders of our future! like the old saying goes, “those who can DO, and those who can not teach”! and it is no more true today in our schools of “higher” learning, than ever! they were the hippie drug users in the colleges back in the day, that could never “finish” their way thru college, so instead had the idea to get the “degree” to stay in school, only to be on the other side of the desk, as they would and could never make it out in the real world!

  • hangman57

    If it has to do with drugs ,it has to be Liberal Democrats from the 1960’s war protesters and drug users. They are a bunch of psycho F———————in people.

  • silvernotes

    Send this to all your representatives, and tell them to do something constructive to the people purpetrating these crimes.

    Gosh you mean you can’t Drug someone sane !! Tell me this can’t be true !!

  • gdoggerz

    I wonder how many of our politicians are on these drugs. I think it should be a rule that if you are using these drugs or have ever used them you cannot run for office.

  • Darius the Mede

    Interesting that the firearms weren’t the problem. I’ve said all along that guns are incapable of killing anyone. It’s the nut behind the trigger.

  • jag57

    When these drugs are combined with violent video games and gun free killing zones, you have a deadly combination.

  • wildeagleone

    When can we expect Bloomberg, Brown and Obama to flip the psychotic switch they all three have in common?

  • jamohio

    It makes a lot of sense because for the last 20 or more years schools have wanted more kids put on ritalin or other drugs to “help with their attention span”!! We must be the most overmedicated people on the face of the Earth!!

  • Fred_Shrinka

    Interestingly enough in CT Newtown is trying to make sure the first responders have sufficient health care to be sure they get all the PTSD care and ANTI-DEPRESSANTS they “need” ! ? ! “Rich and Powerful NRA” ? ?!?! I guess the pharmaceutical industry has the news under better control…

  • tedthebear

    I thought they happened in “gun free” zones.

  • Lester Peoples

    Or to add, Muslim influence by the false prophet Mohammad and his book the Qu’ran, or Koran of ideologies and hatred toward the rest of the world–who are not as ‘they’ being influenced by Satan himself making up a false diety called Allah–a complete opposite of the true creator Jehovah YHWH and his Son Yeshua Hamashiach, [the Christ]. Deception and false teachings fire the flames of hell to those who fall into this trap! Jesus Christ-the Only name in heaven or earth whereby we must be saved, so says Almighty God. Believe and live’

  • Oldshooter

    While there is no question that drugs (ALL drugs, including aspirin) sometimes have bad side-effects, those effects must be considered in conjunction with the benefits. The only direction in which your article takes us, is the ultimate banning of psychoactive drugs, especially SSRIs. This is the solution supported by Dr. Piazza of the Frontsight Institute too. It is quite wrong however. Consider:

    1) While it’s true that the introduction of these drugs is correlated (in time) with the advent of mass shootings, it is also the case that there were far, far, more people committed to mental hospitals prior to these drug’s availability. Banning them would require an enormous, and very expensive, increase in psychiatric ward/mental hospital beds, with the accompanying staff, etc. It would also lead to horrific personal tragedies in terms of people (who are currently living more or less independently) being committed (often involuntarily), generally for the rest of their lives, to facilities that would have to be geared to deal with all sorts of different, sometimes aggressive, behavior. Such facilities always make policies (in the interests of “safety”) that are based on the worst case patient, so they become, in effect, prisons. Remember “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest?”

    2) By banning drugs like the SSRI’s (Prozac, Zoloft, etc.) you would deny effective treatment to literally millions of people with depression and anxiety related disorders, to stop a rare few who might commit murder or suicide. Consider that if a drug is designed to treat severe depression, it is being prescribed for those who are already more likely to commit suicide or possibly murder/suicide, hence it should be expected that the underlying disorder for which they are being treated is more likely the causative factor than the drug. If the patient starts too late, doesn’t follow directions (common with SSRIs, which take up to 2 months before results are seen), drops out of treatment, etc. the risk increases significantly, but the statistics will still show a correlation (not, mind you, a causative relationship) with taking the drug in question. We had a mass shooting in San Antonio, TX, back around 1979 as I remember, in which a veteran with Paranoid Schizophrenia shot up a number of people at a big parade. His motor home was found to have many months worth of unused, but regularly refilled (he was crazy, not stupid) medication (I think it was Thorazine back then). The data still reflect however, that he was taking the drug; in fact, he was not, and his behavior had not been a problem when he WAS taking it. If you want to ban Ritalin and other drugs used to treat ADHD, you will deprive, again, millions, of kids (and adults) of the ability to focus and function effectively in many environments, particularly school settings, which tend to require more intense concentration in classes (which are often inherently boring to boot). I have found that kids with disorders like Oppositional-Defiant Disorder are often misdiagnosed with ADHD. Giving an “upper,” like Ritalin, to such a kid generally results in increasing their disruptive behavior because it makes them even more active (and their activity is generally disruptive because that’s what they like to do), whereas ADHD kids are disruptive because they can’t concentrate, and generally show a decrease in disruptive behavior when they are suddenly able to focus in class.

    3) We eradicated Smallpox and largely stopped Polio (which used to be at epidemic proportions in the USA) by vaccinating virtually everyone, even though the vaccines, like all medicines, had some bad side-effects. In fact, they killed or maimed a small fraction of those who took them. But we are still a lot better off without those diseases running rampant among us, aren’t we?

    I suspect that there is also a new cultural factor in play, which I believe developed beginning in the late 1960s, that led to people believing that everyone should “let it all hang out” and not be “uptight” about showing their feelings. Everyone’s feelings were considered to be equally “valid,” and perhaps they are, but this led to a social acceptance of almost any kind of behavior because it was “natural” for that person. Parental goals changed from trying to raise their children to be “good citizens and responsible adults,” who were considerate of others, to raising “happy kids” who were free of “emotional hang-ups.” The idea that everyone’s behavior is inherently natural, and therefore acceptable, or that one need not learn to control one’s emotions or behavior has led us to a society that is essentially maladaptive, especially in terms of ability to deal effectively with stressful situations. I learned in the service that, while everyone might well be scared, especially in combat, you had to learn to control your emotions in order to be able to function effectively, focus on the objective, etc. The change to an all volunteer military has also meant that a large section of our society that used to be exposed to that type of training, no longer is. Frankly, in my experience ( I’m in the mental health field, in case you hadn’t already fIigured that out) the primary differences between those of us on THIS side of the bars, and those on the other side of them, is that those on the inside 1) lack the ability or desire to control their emotions, and 2) the hardcore criminals have no real empathy, hence lack the ability (or desire) to be considerate of others. Remember how the bad guys in the old cowboy movies had no consideration for others, or hurt others for fun? That’s why we all wanted to play the good guys in our games. But now the heroes in our movies are often equally inconsiderate, and generally behave in ways outside the accepted rules. “Dirty Harry” may have been “effective,” and those movies pandered to the feelings many of us have about the ineffectiveness of the legal system, but he was in fact, both a lousy cop and a lousy role model for kids. These cultural changes have probably had far more to do with the way mass murderers have learned to see the world than any drugs they may have been taking (or at least been prescribed) prior to their depredations.
