THREAD: the most disingenuous, galling part of the republican response for calls of gun control is the attempt to shift all the blame on mental health. not just because they ALSO ignore calls for funding of mental health programs, though that also shows great hypocrisy. [1/8]

it's more than that, though. these people aren't dumb. they're executive officers, they're legislators. they know the difference between short term, medium term, and long term. [2/8]

they should be able to understand that IF mental health is a factor (and i'm not sure it always is), it's a factor that can only be solved in the medium term or long term. it doesn't have an immediate solution. [3/8]

so if you want to avoid these horrific murderous events in the short term, the best option is to deal with the guns.

they love talking about cars, and how you can also kill people with cars yet no one's trying to take away people's cars. (yes, we know. [4/8]
