“The disease in this case isn’t the Second Amendment. The disease is youngsters who are steeped in a culture of violence,” North said on “Fox News Sunday."
North then seemingly blamed the prescription drug Ritalin, which is used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, for making kids — particularly male students — violent.
“They’ve been drugged in many cases. Nearly all of these perpetrators are male.”
“And they’ve come through a country where violence is commonplace,” North said."
I bolded those two parts and I agree with him on that point. Gun violence is commonplace in our country. It’s not just drugged kids that are killing people at school. It’s husbands gunning down wives. It’s people gunning down their neighbors. It’s people killing each other at high school graduation parties. It’s police gunning down suspects. It’s people blowing their own brains out.
It’s who we are and it happens all over our country.
