A reader in Oklahoma asked about Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor (SSRI) anti-depressant drugs. Here is the short answer: Big Pharma has replaced Big Tobacco as D.C.'s unassailable legislative pressure group. SSRI drugs are a $50 billion per year industry. So don't expect any highly-publicized congressional hearings that detail the links between mood altering drugs and school massacres, even though the evidence is plain as day. OBTW, Forbes recently posted an excellent article on this subject, but it must have hit too close to the mark, because the editors spiked it, just a few days later. (The huge advertising budgets of Big Pharma can be turned off and on at their discretion, so they obviously wield a lot of power.)

Resistance is building, folks: Texas, Missouri Join Other States Looking To Block Gun Bans. And another approach: South Carolina bill would exempt state militia from federal gun rules.
