So far we can approximate, as of today (2019) that 25% of Americans (and growing) won’t be able to get guns because of their mental health record.
Overall, the researchers estimated that 16.7 percent of the 242 million adults in the United States filled at least one psychiatric drug in 2013, including:
- 12 percent who reported filling one or more prescriptions for antidepressants;
- 8.3 percent who reported filling one or more prescriptions for sedatives, hypnotics, and anxiolytics; and
- 1.6 percent who reported filling one or more prescriptions for antipsychotics.
According to the research letter, the rates at which individuals reporting filling prescriptions for psychiatric drugs varied by race and ethnicity. The researchers found that:
- 20.8 percent of white adults reported using psychiatric drugs;
- 9.7 percent of black adults reported using psychiatric drugs;
- 8.7 percent of Hispanic adults reported using psychiatric drugs; and
- 4.8 percent of Asian adults reported using psychiatric drugs.
Further, the researchers found that the rate of psychiatric drug use increased by age. According to the study, 25.1 percent of adults ages 60 to 85 used at least one psychiatric drug, compared with 9 percent of those ages 18 to 39. The researchers also found that older adults were more likely to use antidepressants and anxiolytics, sedatives, and hypnotics, but not antipsychotics.
In addition, the researchers found that women were more likely than men to report using psychiatric drugs, at 21 and 12 percent, respectively.
According to the research letter, most individuals who reported using psychiatric drugs said they used the medications long-term. The researchers ound that 84.3 percent of adults filled three or more prescriptions for psychiatric drugs in 2013 or reported that they had started to take the drugs in 2011 or earlier. Long-term psychiatric drug users filled a mean of nearly 10 prescriptions for the drugs in 2013. READ MORE…
(JAMA STUDY 2013 1 out of 6 adults are on psyche drugs)
These data show 1 of 6 US adults reported taking psychiatric drugs at least once during 2013, but with 2- to 3-fold differences by race/ethnicity, age, and sex. Moreover, use may have been underestimated because prescriptions were self-reported, and our estimates of long-term use were limited to a single survey year.
VLA comment: That is 16.666% of US adults in 2013 that will not be able to get a gun permit.
How much has that increased six years later? Say 20% of American Adults can’t get gun permits because they have been diagnosed with some form of mental illness and have been prescribed drugs.
Up to 23.5 percent of all children under age 18 take at least one prescription medication each month,1 including opioids, antidepressants, and other psychotropic medications.
We may already be at one quarter (1/4) of the population on psyche drugs. Be careful with the legislation as this is the subtle alternative way to take away guns. So far we can approximate that as of today (2019) 25% of Americans won’t be able to get guns because of their mental health record.
THE CAUSE OF MASS SHOOTINGS, SUICIDES CAN BE FOUND IN THE FIELD OF PHARMACOGENETICS (READ POSTS)
|There’s a common thread that winds its way across nearly all mass shooters who carry out violence in America. It’s not guns, it’s psychiatric drugs|
Multiple credible scientific studies going back more than a decade, as well as internal documents from certain pharmaceutical companies that suppressed the information show that SSRI drugs ( Selective Serotonin Re-Uptake Inhibitors ) have well known, but unreported side effects, including but not limited to suicide and other violent behavior. One need only Google relevant key words or phrases to see for themselves. www.ssristories.com is one popular site that has documented over 4500 ” Mainstream Media ” reported cases from around the World of aberrant or violent behavior by those taking these powerful drugs.
And what is the science behind this: PHARMACOGENETICS
This research paper details patients who had been referred to Dr. Lucire’s practice for expert opinion or treatment. More than 120 subjects were diagnosed with akathisia [a neurotoxic psychosis often characterized by a feeling of inner restlessness and inability to stay still] or serotonin toxicity [extremely high levels of serotonin causing toxic and potentially fatal effects] after taking psychiatric drugs that had been prescribed for psychosocial distress. Akathisia has been known to be associated with suicide since the 1950s and with homicide since 1985.
They were tested for variant alleles in cytochrome P450 (CYP450) genes, which play a major role in the metabolism of all antidepressant and many other drugs, indicating ultrarapid metabolism due to allele duplications. This seems to be strongly associated with a large number of deaths from intoxication and suicide. High or fast-changing levels of psychotropic substances can cause unpredictable toxicity leading to violent behavioral effects, including akathisia. [An allele is one of two or more alternative forms of a gene that arise by mutation and are found at the same place on a chromosome.]
With the exception of liability without fault, which requires only actus reus, a crime requires two elements, actus reus and mens rea. While most criminal defenses attempt to excuse, justify or exculpate the defendant’s criminal guilt by addressing mens rea, the automatism defense is different in that it attempts to prove that the defendant did not actually commit actus reus. Automatism can therefor apply to both conventional cases and cases of strict liability & vicarious liability. If the defendant is found to have been acting as an automaton (“a machine that moves”) when the crime was committed, that is, totally unconsciously and involuntarily, then he cannot be said to have been “acting” at all, in a legal sense. And without actus reus, the defendant cannot be held criminally liable for his actions.
VLA COMMENT: The rise of information about pharmacogenetics (see room on right side list on this site) citing the inability of individuals to metabolize the popular pharmacueticals leading to mass shootings, suicides will give the legal professional plenty of business for those who have ears to hear!
We are at the cutting edge of its exposure right now in 2019/20. Attorney’s get educated and open up several bank accounts in different banks.
Dr. Lucire’s study: Having gained access through many attorneys of clients who were convicted of homicide, Dr. Lucire, an Australian Psychiatrist and researcher into pharmacogenetics, shares her study of men and women, finally, taken off their prescription drugs, who relate heinous (emphasis added) homicidal ideations that led them to kill their loved ones.
Subject 1, in her own words:
My husband was drinking. I took small doses of valerian for a month and had weird dreams and premonitions. When I took nortriptyline, I immediately wanted to kill myself, talked myself out of it. I’d never had thoughts like that before. My husband was angry, shouting. I walked outside a lot, with palpitations, trouble breathing, and became more depressed. My smoking went up to 25 a day, no alcohol. I didn’t sleep for two nights, dreamt, then slept maybe three hours, felt awful. I dreamt that my daughter had dark teeth and I saw a black halo around her head, a spear hanging over it. I felt like a zombie. I believed I had to help my daughter, that a bad spirit possessed her. I picked up a knife and stabbed her and woke up. I was not myself. I was looking on from the outside, controlled by dark forces. She said: “Mum, what are you doing here?” I realized what I’d done. I asked my husband to kill me. He called the police. I felt better in the police cells without the pills, but the pills started again and thoughts of killing myself returned.
[Reference: “Multiple adverse outcomes following first discharge from inpatient psychiatric care: a national cohort study”, The Lancet Psychiatry, June 03, 2019]
“People discharged from inpatient psychiatric care are at higher risk than the rest of the population for a range of serious fatal and non-fatal adverse outcomes.”
These individuals are also more likely to perpetrate violent crimes, including homicide. Suicide risk is known to be especially raised soon after discharge.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved on April 19, 2019 a medical device for so-called attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The prescription-only device, called the Monarch external Trigeminal Nerve Stimulation (eTNS) System from NeuroSigma, is for patients ages 7 to 12 years old who are not currently taking prescription ADHD drugs.
This device delivers an electric current to the brain (through the V1 branch of the 5th cranial nerve) with an electrode taped to the forehead. It costs about $900 to start, with additional costs for more of the electrode patches which are only used once each. It is not currently reimbursed by insurance. READ MORE…

The cytochrome P450 isoenzymes are a superfamily of enzymes found in the Liver and in all cells except the blood. These enzymes catalyse the metabolism of a large number of endogenous and exogenous compounds-prescription drugs and street drugs.
The vast individual variation of genetics vary greatly according to race and ethnicity. It is the field of PHARMACOGENETICS that accounts for surge in “apparent” mental illness, suicides, drug addiction and homicides and disease susceptibility.
About 5–10% of Caucasians and 0.9% ofAsians metabolise debrisoquine and other substrates of CYP2D6 at a markedly decreased rate. In addition to thepoor and extensive metabolisers, a group called the ultrarapid metabolisers has been identified.
The CYP2C19 enzyme is also associated with genetic polymorphism. Slow metabolisers are found in 2–5% of Caucasians, about20% of the Japanese population, 19% of African Americansand 8% of Africans .
Medical DNA sequencing leads to lawsuits and legal questions
One of the biggest concerns is legal liability. Health care providers face a disconnect: Technology has outpaced their ability to interpret genetic results, such as a patient’s risk of breast cancer or heart attack from a particular mutation. Because of that, typical fallbacks including providing a rigorous standard of care—which can also act as a legal shield against malpractice claims—are becoming fuzzy. What is a doctor to do when a patient has results from a direct-to-consumer testing company like 23andMe and asks what implications they have for their health? Or when a lab notifies a doctor that a genetic variant their patient carries, thought meaningless 3 years ago, is now known to be harmful, but they can’t locate the patient? Can a testing lab be held liable for not regularly reviewing the scientific literature, to track science’s understanding of the gene variants it tests for?
