This is not about mental illness!

It is about the empowerment of white nationalism and domestic terrorism in America. Why has the Trump Administration cuddled them? Let's frame this debate in a way that we can expose these bastards for what they are. This is domestic terrorism!

1. Right!

The US is 4.5% of the world population and there is mental illness all over the world. Yet, 44% of all guns are in this country. The math doesn't add up. GUNS are the problem. GUNS in the US is our problem.

2. This "kid" was a domestic terrorist.

Trump has emboldened white nationalism in America, and this will not stop until we face it. Guns and emboldened terrorist are a lethal combination.

3. I disagree

White Nationalism contributes to SOME of the incidents, but not the DC sniper. Not what happened in Dallas. Those were Af-Am killers.

The words you're looking for are Alienation and Anomie.

"Mental Illness" is too generic. Depression, Isolation, Anger, and Resentment are common emotions in Rampage Killers, but their Alienation from society leads to revenge-seeking.

5. Well, I think it IS about mental illness also.

They are not mutually exclusive.

It can be both.
