    Yeah, my night table reading is pretty dry. And sort of eccentric, I guess (I have five books stacked up there right now, and none of them is at all similar to the others). But compared to what I'm reading now -- a 200 page book on the budget process called Red Ink -- a book on cutting edge human psychology actually sounds pretty vibrant. But I'm only a dabbler in this stuff, really. If I read 400 pages on a subject I'll pretty much think I've got it and can move on, even though that's bull****. A lot of my reading ideas come from Fareed Zakaria's show, actually. His recommendations are pretty solid. That and the Daily Show.

    I definitely don't read as much fiction as I used to, though. I turn to movies and TV for that. Sports, especially football, is where I scratch my escapism itch.
    I tried to get through Richard Dawkin's The Greatest Show on Earth once, but it just felt like I was reading a text book. I think that was my last attempt at non-fiction. Once I finish up with my PhD and get away from all these papers, I might pick it up again. It took me almost 3 years after finishing up my BA to start writing again, though...

    If I could take your pain and frame it, and hang it on my wall,
    maybe you would never have to hurt again...

    The mother of Adam Lanza, the gunman who killed 20 children and six adults in one of America’s worst ever school massacres, was a “survivalist” preparing for economic and social collapse, it has emerged.
    http://www.independent.co.uk/news/wo...s-8422298.html

    Inside the piece though they report Adam Lanza's uncle said the boy was prescribed Fanapt, a controversial anti-psychotic medicine.

    http://www.businessinsider.com/adam-...#ixzz2FRTv1sXp

    Fanapt is a type of prescription medicine used for the treatment of schizophrenia in adults.


    http://www.fanapt.com/info/about-fan...76937017486013


    So it looks like he was on a medication for schizophrenia. In fact, he is on one that a huge chunk of psychiatrists won't even prescribe because we don't have enough information on it. On top of that, his mother was a survivalist preparing him for the possible end of the world. So it looks like he did have schizophrenia, almost assuredly paranoid schizophrenia, and was on a medication for it that most psychiatrists won't even prescribe because not only does it not always work, it has been known to enhance these psychotic breaks. Addtionally, he had a mother convincing him that the world was about to collapse. She was telling a paranoid schizophrenic that the world was going to end and teaching him how to use guns. Yeah, there was no way that was going to end well. This is on the mother.

Those with schizophrenia perseverate on things that are supernatural or science fiction, so I have a hard time believing that the timing of this is coincidence. Either one would have been easily avoided if he was seeing a psychiatrist regularly...
    I posted this yesterday, before all this stuff came out. Just sayin'...

    Interesting to re-read this thread later on.

    Nothing has changed in regard to national legislation, some states have tightened a few regulations & some have relaxed a few regulations.

    Only 336 incidents...in 2014. Also a national debate on the militarization of police after their, ugh, zealous response in Ferguson.

    I respect people on both sides of the issue. There is no definitive right answer. I own one gun, I used to own a very nice sig Sauer 45 but when I went back into army it was too much of a pain because you can almost never have it with you. I had a soldier that needed money and he sold me his sig p 250 nothing special but very reliable.

    I think there are a great amount of people that shouldn't have guns, they don't have the proper mindset and respect of what a gun can actually do. They don't have the temperament to know that a gun is not something you use when angry or that it's not a security blanket to do any asinine thing you like. Unfortunately there are many irresponsible gun owners that just see them as toys and not the dangerous devices they can be.

    the us gun debate is so damn bitter on both sides. I dont have a view on what you should do, do what you like.

    But the idea of some of the morons over here just walking into a supermarket and buying a gun? ****ing terrifyingly.
