Oliver North Blames School Shootings On Ritalin

Simply two days after a young man opened fireplace on his classmates and teachers from a  senior high school in Santa Fe, Texas , the National Rifle Association’ s i9000 incoming president, Oliver North, held responsible Ritalin and a “ culture associated with violence. ”    

On “ Fox News Sunday, ”   the controversial Iran-Contra figure informed host Chris Wallace that the answer for the increasing number of school shootings ― there have been 22 so far within 2018, by one count ― is not gun control.

“ We’ re trying like the dickens to deal with the symptoms without treating the disease, ” he said.  

“ And the condition in this case isn’ t the Second Change. The disease is youngsters who are rich in a culture of violence, ” he said. “ They’ ve been drugged in many cases. Nearly all of such perpetrators are male…. Many of these younger boys have been on Ritalin given that they were in kindergarten. ”

North’ h comments on Sunday echoed these made by President Donald Trump following the Exotic Hook shooting keep away from 2012. Following the shooting, Trump messaged about violent video games and the “ glorification” of violence.

North, a retired Ocean whose  part in the Iran-Contra affair   in the 1980s made him children name,   appeared in ads for the war-centered video game “ Contact of Duty: Black Ops II” and has also worked as a expert for the game.  

Other prominent Conservatives have blamed violent culture, but not lax gun laws, in the wake up of recent shootings, including  Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida   and  Ohio Gov. John Kasich .

North is due to begin as NRA president in the arriving weeks.
