Our kids don't have a chance

Atascadero

Ron Snodgrass

News flash: Take away the Second Amendment. Take away the guns. Put into place more gun control laws. This will stop the killing. Coming from our so-called fix-it-all government.

News Flash: We don’t need any more gun control laws; what we need is drug control laws. We have 300,000 children in the school system that are on some kind of medical-doctor-prescribed, pharmaceutical, mind-altering prescription drugs. Medical doctors won’t stop messing with our kids’ minds; that is the problem here. It is not really about gun control; the issue here is pharmaceutical drug control.

The FDA has warned us for more than a decade about how these drugs backfire and cause violent and suicidal behavior in children and adolescents, and later increased this warning to include young adults up to the age of 25.

Connecticut has some of the strictest gun control laws in the entire United States.

The death penalty does not stop people from killing each other, and neither will no guns.
