Re: School Violence

Is Ritalin even linked to any of the shootings? Kate, you have it backwards. It would do no good to examine all children given Ritalin to determine the incidence of violence among them.

Except that they’ve said so. An NRA spokesman on Fox ‘News’ actually said that school shootings are just an unfortunately unavoidable side-effect of the all-conquering Second Amendment. Nothing to be done. Thoughts and prayers. Despite its attempts to claim otherwise, the NRA is NOT America. I thin...

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia his own self said this in District of Columbia v. Heller. “...[L]ike most rights, the ...
