Aren’t you sick of hearing excuses for mass murderers in American who happen to be white?

Someone on Twitter made a flowchart about it, like this:

Donald Trump has now tried to suggest that the shooter in Florida may have been “mentally disturbed”:

United States President Donald Trump has suggested the suspect in the Florida shooting that killed 17 people is possibly “mentally disturbed”

The ex-pupil, identified as Nikolas Cruz, 19, allegedly walked into the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland on Wednesday shortly before classes ended and opened fire on students and teacher.

Cruz was armed with an AR-15-style rifle and had multiple magazines of ammunition when he surrendered to officers in a nearby residential area, police said. He loved guns and was expelled for unspecified disciplinary reasons, police and former classmates said.

In a tweet on Thursday, Trump suggested “signs” had been missed.

“So many signs that the Florida shooter was mentally disturbed, even expelled from school for bad and erratic behavior. Neighbors and classmates knew he was a big problem. Must always report such instances to authorities, again and again!”

Unfortunately, it turns out that Mr Trump himself revoked a US law that would have made it harder for the shooter to buy a gun in the first place:

His words are at odds with one of his first actions as President.

Behind closed doors and to cheers from the National Rifle Association, he rolled back an Obama-era regulation that would have made it harder for people with histories of mental illness to buy guns.

This Writer liked the solution for the Trump problem that was aired on The Last Leg (February 16):

Convince him that guns are a Muslim plot. Then he’d ban them from the USA, no matter what the National Rifle Association said.

I almost tweeted Mr Trump with a message to that effect, but refrained – in the interests of good taste.

It would work, though.
