that guy in Arizona Wrote: Regardless of which news source you read (and I read 5 newspapers every day), the same phrases about this story keep coming up:
" .. was being evaluated for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder .. "
" .. had been treated for depression and anxiety ... "
" .. showed no signs of violence or suicidal tendencies .. "
" .. no indication that the soldier was involved with any extremist organizations .. "
The most popular drug prescribed in America in 2013 was Abilify, which had sales of $6.46 billion. It is used to treat psychosis and depression.
The 7th most popular drug, Cymbalta, had sales of $5.2 billion. It is used to treat depression and anxiety disorders.
Although it may seem obvious to most of us that people who are taking either one of these drugs should not be allowed to have access to guns, there are an awful lot of people (like Rand Paul or Tend Nugent) who would disagree with us. FOX "news", naturally, feels the way to prevent future base shootings is to "end restrictions on service members carrying weapons on post".

AmcmurryFreedom Wrote: I thought I saw in national news tonight that the shooter was on AMBIEN to treat his mental conditions. I know people that have been on AMBIEN and that can be scary. They travel places not knowing how they got to their destination. They wake up in the middle of the night and do things they don't normally do when they are supposed to be asleep.
AMBIEN is on the watch list for a drug being prescribed and how some people react to the effects.
Remember next month is National Mental Health Month!
