Wait, isn’t it we right conservatives that have tried diverting from the firearm aspect by calling out mental issues?

FR has been harping on mental issues every time a mass shooting happens, especially since the Gabrielle Giffords thing in AZ. As a counter to the anti-gun left. Often true, but I think a bit reactionary, to leftists.

Not all are strictly crazy. There are bad people in the world. Just bad, not necessarily crazy. And our crazy society tends to EXCUSE craziness, just as we constantly make up reasons why other kids and criminals should be excused and not punished.

Certainly some conservatives are lazy and like to blame mental illness. It’s a comfortable position, made even more so by ignorance.
