Incoming NRA president: 'Disease' is violence, not the Second Amendment

Incoming National Rifle Association (NRA) President Oliver North said in a Sunday show interview that the problem facing America is a culture of violence, not the Second Amendment.

“The disease in this case isn’t the Second Amendment. The disease is youngsters who are steeped in a culture of violence,” North said on “Fox News Sunday.”

North then seemingly blamed prescription drug Ritalin, which is used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), for making kids — particularly male students — violent. 

“They’ve been drugged in many cases. Nearly all of these perpetrators are male.”

“And they’ve come through a country where violence is commonplace,” North said.
