“If school shield had been in place in Sante Fe High School, far less likely that would have happened. The problem we’ve got is we’re trying like the dickens to fight the symptom without treating the disease. The disease in this case isn’t the 2nd amendment, the disease is youngsters who are steeped in a culture of violence, they’ve been drugged in many cases. Nearly of these perpetrators are male and they’re young teenagers in most cases.
“They’ve come through a culture where violence is commonplace. All we need to do is turn on the TV. Go to a movie. Many of these young boys have been on Ritalin since they were in kindergarten. Now I’m certainly not a doctor, I’m a Marine. But I can see those kinds of things happening.” – Incoming NRA president and multiple felon Oliver North, speaking this morning on state television.

.@NRA President blames America’s school shooting crisis on media violence and Ritalin. This is false. American teens watch the same movies and play the same video games as their peers in other high income countries. What’s different? They have easy access to arsenals and ammo. https://t.co/LKhAv5Ozx2

Incoming NRA president Oliver North blames school shootings in part on children being medicated with Ritalin for too long. “I’m not a doctor,” he admits, but links the rise in shootings with Ritalin on @FoxNewsSunday
