There are a lot of Freepers that agree with this.
They are the ones blaming the mass shootings on these meds.
I do not agree with this. It’s cowardly. It’s another path that the communists are taking to implement their agenda.
And, note that the police are fully cooperating with this.
The meds which come under fire most often are SSRIs (Selective Seratonin Reuptake Inhibitors) which are something people shouldn't just quit, but should taper off usage under a physician's supervision.
Whether the involvement of patients in mass shootings who have taken these or were taking them at the time of the shooting is coincidental (correlation) or whether the medication contributed directly or indirectly (causation) to the mental state of the shooters is something which should be investigated. The consistent presence of those medications in the pharmacological history of the shooters raises valid questions.
Should all psychoactive drug history be considered a disqualifier for firearms ownership? Probably not, but whether the meds are to blame or the condition which led to their prescription is, it is a flag for the moment.
This is one of the problems with blanket policies--people who don't deserve it are going to be hurt by them.
Besides, none of this will stop anyone who wants a gun regardless of the rules from obtaining one.
Only the law-abiding will suffer, and they are likely not going to be a problem in the first place.
There are a lot of Freepers who think a felon who has served his time should lose his second amendment rights, even non violent ones.
