young men didn't have access to porno in 1964? So they read the braille version of playboy and penthouse? They had pretty good access to psychedelic drugs in 1964. And most of the kids who turn in to mass shooters aren't on ANY kind of psychoactive drugs (a tiny number, lower than the background rate in the populace for their age, are on such drugs). The general gist of mass shooting kids is that they typically live in shitastic households by parents that mostly ignore them. They aren't taking little Johny to the child psychiatrist for help. And the vast majority of the totally broken households that teen gang members come from also aren't similarly getting their kids helps.That in1964 50% or so of young men were not medicated with psychoactive drugs, or did not have access to porno or violent game playing.

It’s sad. People think a medication can be a substitute for good parenting.So I am to believe that the magazines I found in the trash in the 60s are equivalent to Porn Hub?
Or that the joints we smoked are equivalent to the vast overprescribing or Ritalin and other drugs?
According to Lawrence Diller’s book “Running on Ritalin,” published in June 1999, Ritalin first began being prescribed in 1960. However, it was not until the 1990s when Ritalin prescriptions saw a dramatic increase. According to a 1995 PBS airing of The Merrow Report, prescriptions rose to 2 million and were doubling every two years. This increase was, in part, due to the advocacy of Children and Adults with Attention Deficit (CHADD), a group that received significant funding from CIBA, according to The Merrow Report.
Ritalin is the brand name for the stimulant drug methylphenidate, developed by CIBA, now known as Novartis. It is used for the treatment of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). History CIBA filed for the Ritalin trademark on July 9, 1948, according to U.S. Patent and Trademark Office...health-faq.com
He makes an excellent point.
And just remember, the largest mass shooting of American civilians in history was carried out by.....the US Army.
As much as I like and respect Karl over at Inrange, he is actually not correct. The largest massacre of nominally Americans was by the hands of the US Army at wounded knee (not direct combatants). 250-300 dead. Though Native Americans certainly wouldn't consider themselves citizens of the United States (at least not at the time). That is NOT me excusing it at all. It was f-ing horrible then and now.So you are thinking Indians ? During the so- called Indian Wars era ? (Not saying about those particular situiations were Right or justified, just setting the larger Era .)
Most of the massacres of non- indiginous during the Labor Wars Era was not directly by * US Regular Army * . Those were State Militias under State Control , local authorities , and private detectives hired by mine/ factory owners , and various combinations thereof .
