Track those on dangerous drugs, not gun owners

There’s a lot of talk about guns and school shootings. But no one talks about the Big Pharma connection. I did research and found that every one of the shooters around the world were on or getting off heavy pharmaceutical prescription drugs. Every one.

That doesn't make it into the news when the broadcast of the shootings is followed by a pharmaceutical drug commercial. 

Soldiers and those with mental problems are fed these dangerous drugs and set free to roam the streets.

I read that the mother of the most recent shooting had been in court to have her son committed, and while waiting, the shooting took place.

We all should look at what Big Pharma is doing to all of us. It would be a lot easier to track those on these dangerous drugs than all gun owners. And maybe end the shootings.
