Trump's lift of the mental illness ban on firearms may have just caused its first major mass murder.

A mentally ill man bought a selective fire rifle and went on a shooting rampage yesterday morning around Red Bluff (including a local elementary school), killing 3 others and wounding dozens (including children as young as 6).

Very narrow group of people and didn't apply to this shooter or any of the previous shooters. So no, Trump didn't cause any mass murderers.


What do you mean, 'what was really rescinded?' The link you provided just backed up what I was saying. The rescinding of HJ Res 40 pulled the ability of anyone receiving SSA benefits for mental illness from purchasing a firearm. This man was receiving benefits for mental illness. He purchased his weapon in March of this year after having the AR-15 he used in another assault taken away from him.

Also, the claim that Trump hasn't caused any mass casualties is not true.

 

He's only been in office for 9 months and he's killed more civilians than the entirety of the 8-year tenure of the Obama administration.

And remember the raid that Trump authorized because Obama refused it and ultimately led to the death of an American soldier and almost 30 civilians?

Or how he is pursuing secret missions in Africa which have resulted in the deaths of American special forces operators
