I never thought I’d find the day when I was agreeing with someone from the “Church” of Scientology, but in the latest whacko press release, John Travolta says that guns are not to blame for school shootings.
Travolta said: “I still think that if you analyse most of the school shootings, it is not gun control. It is [psychotropic] drugs at the bottom of it.
Well…at least he’s not blaming the guns. I find some fault with this kind of thinking though; it’s still looking to blame someone or something other than the sociopath nutbar that actually did the killings. Additionally, it seems like it’s almost impossible to distill a complex subject like school shootings down to one root cause.
I’m generally opposed to the almost haphazard manner with which kids are placed on Ritalin these days; so I agree with ol’ Johnny in spirit – I don’t think it’s a good thing that so many kids are exposed to mind altering drugs at a young age.
The objections I take are that you can’t reduce something like crazy people who shoot up schools down to one root cause. But, like I said – at least he’s not blaming the guns. I think that’s a first, actually. Someone from Hollywood not blaming guns for something.
