How come liberals don't want to talk about mental health in relation to school shootings?

Who says they don't? I've seen it discussed here and the libs were involved in the conversation. This is pretty inflammatory and incorrect imo.

Well big surprise... a bunch of conservatives are here answering for liberals and telling them what type of people they are and what they think. Mental health has been discussed. It's still being discussed. Go start a thread with substance.

Loony liberal here: I’ve mentioned the mental health issue lots of times. But here’s another problem: some people who are mentally ill don’t go get help - so how do we know they’re mentally ill? I’ve proposed a psych evaluation as part of the gun background check, and I get hammered for it by the crackpot conservatives.

If "bad mental health" is the main operating cause, that shifts the debate towards "mental health safeguards" on purchase, and away from more general controls.
