[Before we examine the legitimate issue of mentally deranged mass murderers, the following items are critically important issues as well.]

Stop Mistaking Evil for Mental Illness
… what was once considered evil or criminal, or at least bad behavior, is now considered [at least by liberals, to be] sickness; what once was considered sickness is now considered [at least by liberals, to be] normal and healthy; and what was once considered normal, wise, or moral behavior is now punished by our ‘enlightened’ [liberal] law.

… the vast majority of people with mental disorders do not engage in violence, and the proportion of overall risk of violence attributable to mental disorders is small.

Persons with severe personality disorders, while socially dysfunctional, are not technically psychotic but can be very dysfunctional.  They do pose severe problems and a great expense for American society…. America faces an epidemic of severe personality disorder problems. Particularly young adult, disaffected, alienated, socially isolated, angry males preoccupied with guns and violent videogames.  Some of these individuals even impulsively defy and attack police.  Young angry, alienated, and rejected teenagers can be dangerous and prone to violence, even mass murder.  But they are not suffering from diagnosed major psychotic mental illness.  They are often found however under the psychiatric umbrella.  Their acting out behavior often gets labelled ‘behavior disorder’…  Persons with a personality or character disorder are commonly in denial about their… destructive thoughts and behavior.  They in essence are unaware or barely aware of the psychological skin in which they have lived in for most of a life…  When confronted, they often blame the messenger who presented the bad news to them.  According to people with severe personality or character disorder, the police who confront them, the boss who fires them, or spouse that leaves them, are the problem…  Few psychotherapists have enough strength of personality to persist and be helpful in their treatment.  More aggressive treatment programs and legal mandates for treatment of these young people need to be creatively developed and implemented aggressively in our communities.  Persistent follow-up with them is absolutely critical!

FBI finds gunman in Dayton mass murder was obsessed with violence

[ASND, then, has to ask, “Why isn’t ‘obsession with violence‘ classified by pshychiatrists as a mental disorder?”  The answer to that question may be found in the following citation…]

The bottom line here is that all of this so-called mental health expertise is, with a very few exceptions, a scam.  The ranks of psychiatrists and psychologists are filled with incompetents who have no business deciding whether or not a mentally ill person should be hospitalized…

The most important aspect of preventing gun violence is making as sure as reasonably possible that psychotic, significantly mentally ill, intoxicated, and mentally unstable persons not have immediate access to guns and get prompt psychiatric attention and treatment…  they, like ‘Normal’ persons who are intoxicated and enraged, should not possess guns…  One confounding problem is the incomplete understanding of temporary mental instability of otherwise ‘normal persons’, mental illness in general, severe mental illness, and effective treatment.

Grave Consequences of the Deinstitutionalization Movement
Another leftist-created failure

After years of [liberals] destroying [America’s] mental health care system, leaving it in ruins, as a national disgrace, cases of undiagnosed and untreated mental illness are to blame for the horrific episodes of violence that have made headlines and wrongly fueled gun control legislation . This is true for Jared Lee Loughner, who shot Congressman Gabrielle Giffords in Tucson, Arizona.  It is true for James Holmes, the man accused of murdering 12 people in a Colorado movie theatre.  It is true for Adam Lanza, the man who murdered 20 children and 6 adults at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut.  Dylan Quick reportedly fantasized about killing people by stabbing them since he was a child…  Take all the guns away.  Take all the knives away.  The number of victims of murders with no apparent motive — born of under-treated, poorly treated or untreated mental illness — will be reduced not one bit.  Because there will still be cars, and poisons, and hammers, and axes that can be used to inflict horrible injuries.  The worst episode of school violence, back in 1927, claimed the lives of 38 children, and it involved explosives, not guns or knives.  [Politicians] either fix things, do nothing or harm needed efforts.  Those who would control weapons, instead of mental illness, are in the third category.

There are unconfirmed reports (from an uncle and a neighbor) that Adam Lanza was medicated at the time of the attack, perhaps taking the anti-psychotic drug Fanapt.  If that turns out to be the case, he will join a dismaying  list  of school shooters and other cold-blooded murderers who were taking or withdrawing from various psychotropic drugs.
