That's ok they are "Legal Drugs"
Full Disclosure: I'm a gun owner and a pharmacist...as if ArmedRPh didn't give it away.
So like the anti-2A people who are looking for a commonality (i.e. they had an "assault rifle"), articles like this are selecting out a single data point (SSRIs) and making or at least leading to causality. I'll take the implied link of SSRIs and violence one step farther and say that all the people on this list also had a mental disorder (or were misdiagnosed with one). All posts like this do it vilify something else instead of the gun and play the same game the anti-2A people are playing.
What's the point? If someone is on an SSRI do we take their guns away? How about we do it if they have EVER been on them (parents divorce back when I was a teen caused me some trouble for a time but I'm better 20 years later OR had some anxiety issues due to a divorce so doc prescribed me something to calm my nerves OR a vet came back from The Suck with a touch of PTSD, he's now treated and back to baseline). Should all of these examples lead to a no-go for guns in the future? Who makes the decision? How is it tracked?
I'm not going after the OP, but this nation wide circle-jerk of the blame game really needs to stop so that the calmer heads can come up with a feasible, logical and fair solution.
I don't see the point of it. Literally millions of Americans are on antidepressants and don't go on shooting rampages. Replacing the blame on guns with pills does nothing.
