Incoming NRA President Oliver North tried to blame the rash of school shootings across the U.S., including the massacre at a Texas high school Friday, on video games and ADHD medication instead of access to firearms.The gun lobby´s newest spokesman said the wave of killings were carried out by "young boys" who "have been on Ritalin since they were in kindergarten."

And we should look at the computer murder games the adolescents are consumed by. That is where they learn to kill!

I agree 100% with Oliver North. It seems every male born today is said to have ADHD and is on drugs. All of them. This is a huge scandal, and I hope the Trump administration addresses it.

#1, and don´t forget Hollywood and trash TV.
Beware of teens wearing black trench coats in warm weather. I know there are other signals beyond the norm.
The hints are everywhere. The adults don´t seem to take notice until there is a tragedy.

I’m looking forward to seeing how anyone will argue against this thesis. When these shootings happen, we see troubled youth, sometimes in troubled family situations. Occasionally there are rumors of ritalin or other medications involved, however we never hear any authoritative review of the perpetrators medical background due to “privacy issues.” It’s time to shake it up and look for the reasons behind these acts rather than blindly pointing fingers.

With all respect to Ollie North, there is no evidence that this young man was on Ritalin. Nor has there been any evidence that Nik Cruz was on Ritalin. Mentally disturbed, not ADHD. Big difference.

Re #6, if I were able, I’d delete that Reply. Rethinking what North said - he was talking about young persons who’d been put on Ritalin long years before. That could very well be the reason for what we are seeing now. Consider #6 to be deleted!

I hadn’t given much thought to Ritalin for a number of decades. My #2 son’s 2nd grade teacher had zero patient and this pesky, energetic boy was disturbing to her. She recommended we see a doctor about Ritalin. We did not. She coped. He went on to 3rd grade, where his teacher adored him, taught him, and thought he was a great kid. Near miss, right?

The elephant in the room that is not being acknowledged is the high school "culture" itself. Until/unless this is investigated and addressed, I fear those socially disenfranchised will continue to choose violence to gain attention.

May I suggest that our children live in a faux culture that has no God other than "choice". The Christian foundation of nation has been diluted until all there is is man and his choices.

We (and our children) need the real God. We can accomplish this because we are not Congress.

When a liberal demands gun control after one of these shootings, ask them: WHY are these young men doing this?

You can guess what answer you will get- a non-answer! It´s all the fault of the gun, the NRA, Conservatives, yada, yada...

The shootings are the effect, not the cause. Our society has been so coarsened by the left (on purpose!), jaded from all the violence in the media, weakened by permissiveness, and development of victims to use as pawns in their political battle against America, that we now see the fruits of their labors.

Almost every one of the school shooters was a mental case, and were suspected of having such a condition by fellow students, teachers, school administrators, and a lot of the time by local law enforcement. However nothing effective was done to treat those particular students.

The big problem with the school shooters is untreated mental health conditions, and not the right of law abiding people to keep and bear arms in accordance with the Second Amendment.

The first thing they should do is deploy metal detectors at the entrances to the schools and effectively operate that technology resulting in everyone who enters the school buildings being checked for firearms.

It´s the arrogance of entitled youth that breed this contempt for fellow human beings. Our "culture" has also drilled into their heads that if you mess up in a video game you can hit the "reset" button, but there are no such buttons in the "game" of life... only lifelong consequences.

It´s a sad thing the parents of this murderer will have to live with this the rest of their lives. The murderer should find his way to a very speedy trial and a hanging in the public square for ALL to see.

Why don´t we blame Liberals instead of me?

The difference between mental illness and ADHD is that mental illness actually exists. Ritalin is simply amphetamines and is highly addictive and destroys your brain over time. Instead of stuffing your kids with pills, try putting down your cellphone and being a parent.

There are a lot of so-called psychologists over prescribing mind altering drugs instead of the harder task of dealing with the individual problems of the children in question. Ritalin is a tool, but if it isn´t accompanied by intelligent analysis and determined intervention by parents, it is worse than useless.

My child was diagnosed ADHD. He also had anger issues, and tended to be violent toward his peers. I was working 16 hours a day and more at the time so my wife bore the brunt of it. We had 3 ´psychiatrists´ who couldn´t spend enough time with him, to even determine he was bored and restless, too bright to plod along at everyone else´s rate. They tried to drug him insensible.

But we got lucky and found a program that changed things. By the time he was graduating High School, he had been weaned off the drugs, and is a good strong young man who contributes to the people around him.

North has a point.

IMHO, the emphasis on ´feelings´, everyone always wins, is also part of the problem. We´ve always had guns, we´ve always had bullies. What has changed? You take a child, feed violence on TV/movies/music/online games 24/7, then tell him his feelings are more important than anything else, violence is a not unrealistic outcome when he is not treated in a way he thinks he should be.

OliverNorth’s rationale holds much credence as do many Ldotter comments. Aside from the convenience of using medications/drugs to treat children for what liberals perceive to be medical problems, the assessment of Ldotter 10 is profound in addressing the core issue of today’s problems in society at all levels. While medications,the mainstream media, and entertainment industry are most certainly factors in the disregard for human life,depression,violence, and drug addiction, the tragedy is most Western culture has turned away from God.

[Continued] barriers of self-righteousness or self-sufficiency. The Law prepares the way so that the seed of the Word can fall upon good soil. All people need to hear the Gospel.” Indeed! The Law demands, the Gospel gives.

Parents are given the privilege, responsibility, and honor of being God’s direct ambassadors to raise children in accordance with the teachings of Scripture. When children know and love God, they respect their parents, become honorable members of society; further, they learn to listen for that still small voice within themselves to guide, sustain and shield them from sin, death, and the devil.

It is a multitude of things. Why boys and not girls? Black kids are less likely to see a therapist and get psychotropics.

Some of these kids have been in day care since they were infants and aren´t cuddled. They are in infant carriers or left in the back seat of a car because it´s ´safer´ If they act up, dope them up. Parents are constantly working to provide for them and when not, on the phone. Hollyweird has dumped violent video game and movies on them.
These kids have no empathy. They have been desensitized.

Schools know these kids better than anyone. They know who is a bully and who their victims are, yet they don´t separate them. You can´t sneak an aspirin into a school today, so they know if they are taking meds. Pharmaceutical companies need to step up to the plate too. What if anything were the shooters taking? Were they all taking the same thing? These meds have terrible side effects.

When I was in High School, there was a rifle range on campus. The ROTC had real firearms, and a large percentage of guys had guns in their cars.
WE have created a safe environment for crazies that want to kill people rather than a safe environment for normal people and a dangerous one for crazies.
These guys don´t go to gun ranges to do this kind of thing, they go to places that have been made safe for killers.

Two things, well, maybe three:

1. When was the last time you heard about a mass shooting at a low-income, inner-city school?
Hmmmm...why? Believe it or not, most of those schools are hardened targets. Many (not all) have metal detectors and a police presence due to years of targeted gang violence that plagued those schools -- as well as the fact they are in more dangerous areas in general.

2. Who are the school shooters? Are they poor, disadvantaged, underrepresented minority students? No. They are middle to upper middle class "white" BOYS who have access to pharmaceuticals (Adderall, Ritalin, anti-depressants) to help them focus and "do well" in school.

3. See model #1 and apply to all our schools and simultaneously start asking why Class II stimulants - basically prescription cocaine - is being given to millions of children, when behavioral therapy is more likely to work better over the long-term.

As FBI director Christopher Wray started giving his response to the blistering report on the Hillary Clinton investigation, I hoped he would accept the findings as proof the agency lost its way and must be shaken to its foundation. By the time he finished talking, I felt ­naive for daring to hope. Wray’s performance was worse than disappointing. It was infuriating proof that it will take more than one election to change the corrupt culture of Washington. Wray replaced the ousted James Comey, whose conduct in the Clinton probe was shredded by Inspector General Michael Horowitz. Investigators demonstrated with new details that the

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who is now attorney to President Trump, has been an outspoken critic of Robert Mueller since joining the president´s counsel. That criticism got new wings when reports suggested last week the FBI had an informant working in the Trump campaign. In light of the new information, Trump and Giuliani have spoken out against what they term "spygate." Although the supposed breach of privacy occurred before Mueller was appointed special counsel, the scandal "taints" the whole Russia investigation, according to Giuliani.

(Coronatus means "crowned.") The tiny, disc-shaped animal was about a 1/2 inch long, with raised spiral grooves on its surface. It spent its entire life embedded on the ocean floor, likely never moving, according to scientists from the University of California – Riverside. A second small animal, an egg-shaped critter that may have looked like a raisin, was also discovered.

Illegal Immigration: The latest outrage by the Trump administration is its policy of "ripping" children away from parents who´ve crossed the border illegally. As with so many other things involving Trump, there´s plenty of emotion but precious little in the way of facts. The furor reached critical mass after the Department of Homeland Security said on Friday that 1,995 children had been separated from their illegal border crossing parents from mid-April through May. That number included, DHS said, cases where the adults were arrested for illegal entry, immigration violations, or possible criminal conduct. The practice has generated a rising storm of protests,

Roseanne Barr has become untouchable due to the "Valerie Jarrett/Ambien/Planet of the Apes" controversy, irrevocably contaminated by racism. This presents a problem for ABC, which canceled her revived show but wants the show to return in some form because it had high ratings. The apparent solution is to create a new show focused on the daughter character "Darlene," which would exclude Roseanne. Unfortunately, Roseanne Barr owns a chunk of the show, and ABC doesn´t want to be seen letting Barr profit from it, so ABC is in talks to buy the show from Barr so she would not technically profit

The Justice Department’s tepid OIG report, with its risible assertion that there was no political bias in the FBI’s Clinton email probe, suggests that it was written by people afraid to tell the unvarnished truth about the conduct of the federal government’s police apparatus, an agency that openly defies congressional oversight and has participated in a vendetta against a sitting president. The FBI’s leadership clearly hopes that the Democrats will win majorities in Congress and put a halt to the investigations into its multifarious abuses of power. The OIG is loath to face the ruthless reprisals that would inevitably follow

FBI Director Wray has said nothing to reassure Americans that he understands the serious corruption highlighted in the IG report. The FBI´s cover-ups and stonewalling on Wray´s watch add to his credibility problems. Both in is his press conference after the IG report was released, and in his testimony Monday before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Director Wray demonstrated he was more concerned about protecting the reputation of the institution of the FBI than about the astonishing corruption of top FBI officials detailed in the IG report. During today’s hearing we heard about FBI agents who aren’t corrupt and how the Clinton email

Monday at a border patrol facility in McAllen, TX on “CBS This Morning,” co-host Gayle King said the Statue of Liberty is “weeping right now” over the separating of immigrant children from their families. King said “We arrived yesterday afternoon. We went straight to the facility, the location where kids and their parents were reunited. All I can say after talking to the people, watching the people, listening to the people, that the Statue of Liberty I think is weeping right now. It’s unbelievable the stories we’ve heard.” She added, “We’re standing in front of a converted warehouse. This is

Fired FBI Director James Comey refused to appear before Congress on Monday to talk about his handling of the Clinton email investigation, and his fired deputy, Andrew McCabe, asserted his Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination. Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch also declined to show up for a major hearing where the Senate Judiciary Committee was looking into the inspector general’s report detailing major bungles in Mr. Comey’s handling of the Clinton investigation. Mr. Comey’s lawyer said he was out of the country — though Sen. Charles E. Grassley, committee chairman, said he saw Mr. Comey
