A Fox News presenter blamed the latest US gun massacres on ‘youth mental health’ – the only 5 replies you need
You’ll have read by now the shattering news from the US where two mass shootings left at least 29 people dead and dozens injured.
It renewed attention on America’s gun laws – or lack of them – and Donald Trump’s response – or lack of it.
Except so-called Fox News personality Tomi Lahren said it was wrong to blame Trump, or guns, or the so-called President’s beloved National Rifle Association.
Oh no. This was to blame instead.
It’s not Trump’s fault. It’s not the NRA’s fault. When will our nation wake up and realize we have a youth mental health crisis likely caused by over-medication, absentee parents, and a culture that glorifies infamy and notoriety above God, family and community?

And these are the only 5 replies you need.
ALL countries have mental health issues, but mass shootings aren't a problem in any other country.
What those countries don't have is the NRA and elected officials beholden to the gun-mad NRA.
The problem isn't mentally ill people. The problem is mentally ill people with guns.

This *oaf* offers the following prescription, in light of the U.S. having had *251* mass shootings this year while the UK has had *zero*:
1) Get the mentally ill off their meds;
2) force women to stay at home; and
3) make children pray to Christ whether they're Christian or not. https://t.co/JGtIVVNosD

When the Constitution was written…
Things that existed: Mentally ill people, crappy parents, and muskets
Things that didn’t exist: AR-15s

We have mentally ill in Canada. We have video games in Canada. What we don’t have is mass shootings daily. That’s because we have strict background checks. Certain types of guns are banned.

You're right. I walked into a Wallmart the other day, threw a depressed kid around, and killed about 20 people.
