Disconnect: DC Shooter Suffered Mental Illness and Obsessed with Violent Video Games

So naturally, Democrats call for more gun control?
  • Aaron Alexis: Washington navy yard gunman 'obsessed with violent video games'
  • Officials: Gunman treated for mental health issues
For all the usual Democrats talking points about stronger background checks for gun owners it's important to note that the shooter in this case had a Top Secret clearance which requires a very rigorous and detailed investigation into the individual before being granted. He also used a shotgun, which is a gun not even Democrats propose to ban and is thought to have taken handguns off guards at the base.

Just like the Sandy Hook school shooting and Aurora Colorado the instant focus by Democrats on guns glosses over the real "trigger" here. Since the Sandy Hook and Aurora how many times have you heard of serious proposals being advanced to deal with the underlying mental health issues? How many Democrats have you seen take to the stump and say we must do something about violent video games?

How many more mass shootings will we suffer before Democrats drop the political issue of gun control and focus on the underlying cause? Or is getting votes more important than results?
