Are people committing mass shootings because of antidepressants or are mass shooters taking antidepressants because of mental problems?

It's not the drugs. It' the shrinks behind these shooters. Nearly everyone one of them had been the subject of some kind of mental health 'treatment' before their rampages.

I guess the question to really ask is "Why are so many people so depressed that they can't bear to exist without drugs?"
Seems like relatively simple troubleshooting if you ask me.

I don't think the correlation defines the causation here.
Tons of people are on SSRIs..
The people who take SSRIs are already depressed... They aren't depressed because no of the SSRIs
James Holmes, 24, accused shooter for Thursday night’s shooting at a Aurora, Colorado movie theater during the midnight premiere of Batman: The Dark Knight Rises, is said to have been under the influence of the prescription drug vicodin.
Holmes has since been placed under arrest and remains in police custody. He is scheduled to appear in a Colorado courtroom on Monday, although no formal charges have been filed.
