I would like to dispute the "mental health care" angle for explaining mass shootings. Very few are committed by people we would generally consider mentally ill. Statistically speaking, people with mental illness are much more likely to be on the receiving end of violence than they are to commit it themselves. Mental illness is a red herring in the mass shooting debate, and one that throws a vulnerable population under the bus.

What we really need to be looking at is the proliferation of extremist ideologies, white supremacy in particular. An increasing number of these massacres are being carried out by white supremacists/nationalists, with a handful of jihadists in the mix as a distant second.
No reason given
