    I spent my adolescence living on the grounds of a psychiatric institution where my mother was the resident social worker. I've know many people with variants of mental illness and personality disorder.

    Like most health care services, there's clearly no doubt that the US needs more accessible mental healthcare. But that is, with all due respect, a distraction from the issue I'm focusing on here.

    To put it bluntly; If mental illness were the key factor in multiple gun homicides, other countries would regularly experience similar acts of carnage. But they don’t.
