Stephen Paddock: Another Mass Shooter on Psychiatric Meds

Written by  Raven Clabough

The mainstream media and the Left are often quick to blame guns and gun manufacturers following mass shootings, but they seem to turn a blind eye to one thing that many mass shooters have in common, including the Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock: the use of psychiatric drugs.

According to data obtained from the Nevada Prescription Monitoring Program by the Las Vegas Review-Journal, this past summer Paddock had been prescribed an anti-anxiety medication called Diazepam (originally marketed as Valium), side effects of which include aggressive and psychotic behavior, hostility, confusion, decreased inhibitions, and suicidal thoughts.

"If somebody has an underlying aggression problem and you sedate them with that drug, they can become aggressive," Dr. Mel Pohl of the Las Vegas Recovery Center told the paper. “It can disinhibit an underlying emotional state. … It is much like what happens when you give alcohol to some people … they become aggressive instead of going to sleep.”

Whether Diazepam is what motivated Paddock to go on a killing spree is unclear, as evidence seems to indicate that the mass shooting was meticulously planned and carefully calculated. According to Dr. Michael First of Columbia University, an expert on benzodiazepines, while drugs such as Diazepam can cause aggressive behavior, the extent to which Paddock planned his actions indicates there were deeper issues behind his decision to commit the worst mass shooting spree in American history.

Diazapam and Loraizapam are both relaxants!! I work with a guy who takes Lorizapam. It is an anti anxiety medicine!! When we are pillaring and things go wrong and we are trying to get out before being buried this guy cannot stop his anxiety attack!! It is totally understandable. He takes his Lorizapam and in 15 minutes he is calm and relaxed!!!

Diazepam (Valium) and chlordiazepoxide (Librium) (also Tranxene) are mild tranquilizers for mild depressions; not to be confused with lithium that is a psychotic drug used for psychosis (already a mental illness). Clarify, because it appears that a lot of people are ill-informed or do not give a dam. The tranquilizers help a lot of people deal with all the inconsistencies and uncertainties on today's societies while lithium (and the likes) is a psychotic drug that people that are really mentally unstable have a tendency to quit using and then go bunkers (because they many times can not distinguish right from wrong)..

Just think, if we disarmed the left we would eliminate at least 90% of the murders by firearm in the entire country. When you look at the shooters of the last 30 years, there were hardly any people from the right side of the political spectrum. Almost all were leftists which makes sense as we all know that Liberalism in all it's many guises is a form of mental illness.

Diazepam does NOT make you aggressive. I was on it for several years and even when I quit without weaning off of it I never once became aggressive because of it. Whoever wrote this is full of b.s... It calms you down when you are anxious or angry and it helps with muscle spasms or withdrawals from alcohol. This is a story for one purpose, taking guns!!

Good first post, Bob. Welcome aboard.

Diazepam dopes you up. he wasn't confused; he planned everything ahead of time. It wasn't a drug induced delirium that made him fire at all those people.

Amen. You are 100% right on the money.

When we talk about a drug causing someone to suddenly "snap," that may happen - a momentary outburst of anger that leads to violence. THIS was nothing like that and had unbelievable planning including weapons, remote cameras or tablets set up like cameras, money wired to the Philippines, and his girlfriend sent away, weeks ago.

The Commiecrat Party can not end the Constitution, can not remove the last block to making America a new Communist Nation. Anyone who has seen Red Dawn know what would happen today if anyone tried to take Americans Freedoms, but with GUNS Gone the Pelosi's, Clinton's, Schumer's, Obama's and the Rest of the Communists that side with George Soros and his Dream of a Communist America where he can be the new Linin. Soros brought us the deranged NAZI Brown Shirt ANTIFA, he gave us the Rioting LIARS of BLM and he gave us Obama who has is our First Communist President. ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC and PBS have done far worse to the American Elector than any Russian Hacking, their LIES, Half Truths and Political Bias is more dangerous than anything Russia did. By the way... Who the hell was motivated by Facebook's Ad? If your that stupid, maybe you need to take a test to get a Voter ID.

It failed just as his and Hitlary's plan to start dumping gun ownersa on the No Fly list AFTER they got a law passed that people on the No Fly list could not own a Firearm!!! Gun Grabbing Demonrats should be outlawed!!!

Considering the millions of persons on psychiatric meds, one statistical association has been established. Depressive persons on anti-depressive meds commit suidice more often than depressives who take no psychiatric meds. Elderly Psychiatrist Dr. Peter Breggin built a home-page clarifying the destruction of psychiatric meds. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZxzPcnQ3nXE
