Five Assault Rifles You Can Pick up at Walmart [PHOTOS] Francis Reynolds and George Zornick December 17, 2012   When Adam Lanza entered Sandy Hook Elementary School on Friday, inexplicably bent on ending as many lives as possible, he was carrying a Bushmaster AR-15 assault rifle and several high-capacity magazines.

I suspect that the number of mass killings, like this one, and the countless others in this country, are a result of one of two things or both; under addressed mental illness and drug use. Often it is both, since mentally ill people too often attempt to self-medicate with drugs. Now, particularly, there seems to be drugs out there that we are finding out about too far after-the-fact. For example, look how long people have been using bath salts and K-2 and our legislators are just now...

I remember hear some psychologist make a really peculiar interpretation of killers who kill themselves after the incident. He says that they do it out of uncontrollable stress and this releases that stress. But after they have done it they realize they have created more problems for themselves that have no good solution.
