Dr. Ignatius Piazza released a letter on Monday, December 17, entitled "Psych Drugs, Not Guns, Doing the Killing" asking it’s recipients to forward the contents to local newspapers, radio stations, television news stations, family and friends. In other words, everyone should consider the fact that psychiatric drugs/medications have played an integral roll in numerous murders and suicides — deaths often attributed to other factors. (God, guns, media, etc.)
Here are select excerpts from Dr. Piazza’s letter, plus video that is definitely worth watching in light of the recent Newtown, CT, shooting.
Las Vegas, Nevada: 12 years ago, I asked a very pointed question in a press release sent to the National Wire Service immediately following the killings at Columbine High School.
A few days after the Virginia Tech Massacre, I again asked the same very direct question.
And today, after the Newton Connecticut massacre, I am once again asking the very same pointed question …
I am asking, "How many times must we experience another Littleton, Colorado or Virginia Tech or Newtown Connecticut before we wake up, study the research and adopt policies which actually reduce crime and begin saving our children instead of leaving them helpless victims when the next psych drug user snaps?"
After Columbine, while most journalists and lawmakers focused on whether or not my answer to protecting children by arming teachers was the right solution, it seems everyone missed my understanding of the root cause that drove these kids to commit such atrocities!
The root cause was and continues to be the psych drugs that are being pushed on our children!
In some cases children as young as kindergarten age!
After Columbine, nobody wanted to believe the founder and director of the nation’s largest firearms training institute when he pointed his finger at psych drugs as the cause of the problem. During numerous radio, TV and newspaper interviews I would bring it up and it would fall on deaf ears with no reaction at all.
So I spent $300,000 to create a Hollywood produced, award winning DVD entitled Front Sight Story, Chapter One: Your Legacy.
In "Your Legacy," I interviewed people of age who actually experienced an America when guns were so freely available to children and youth, that you could order them through the mail with no ID required, no waiting period, and literally carry them to school to place in the back of the classroom with no problems at all.
During this time, when guns were the most accessible in our country’s entire history, there were no school shootings, drive by shootings, or murderous teenage rampages.
What changed? Here is what changed: Powerful psych drugs were developed and became the profitable, prescription answer to a wide variety of extremely questionable if not outright fabricated mental disorder diagnosis of youth.
Little Johnny doesn't want to go to school? Take this pill … Little Johnny isn't learning? Take this pill …
Little Johnny feels anxious? Take this pill … Little Johnny is sad? Take this pill … Little Johnny is restless?
Take this pill … Little Johnny is rebellious? Take this pill …
Watch this video from Citizens Committee on Human Rights. They have done the hard research and now say the same thing I said over 12 years ago …
Then see what Michael Moore, the Darling of the Liberal Left, Anti-Gun Media now has to say about the cause of Columbine. Medical Doctors and Psychiatrists Now Admit Connections Between Psych Drugs and Homicidal and Suicidal Actions of Children and Teens:
Michael and I may never agree about the importance of an armed society to the freedom and protection of law abiding citizens or the fallacy of gun control, but we could be best friends in our efforts to expose the truth about the profit driven history of psych drug prescriptions systematically creating homicidal and suicidal monsters out of our youth in America. In fact, I stand ready and willing to assist Michael Moore in any way possible on such an endeavor.
Now that people on both sides of the gun control debate agree that psych drugs are creating suicidal and homicidal maniacs out of our youth, the time has come to expose the truth to all of America.
You can help save today’s youth from further psych drug abuse and protect America’s next generation from the horrors of psych drug prescriptions. It only takes 10% of the population to unite, stand up and say, "No more!" for social movements to succeed. You CAN do something about this!
Remember, everything you consume can and does have an effect on you. Sometimes the effects are mild, sometimes the effects are not immediately evident; however, everything that a person sees, hears, watches, eats, drinks, breathes, and experiences has the ability to alter one’s being.
