Falling for liberal semantics does not make one rational, only gullible. Liberals want the blame to fall on mental illness because it justifies regulating guns to prevent them from falling into the hands of the mentally ill. But once one rationally recognizes that there is true evil in the world, one understands that no amount of regulation can prevent or control it and therefore make little sense to inhibit the freedom of law abiding citizens. Man has been trying to prevent bad men from doing bad things since the beginning of time. Calling bad men mentally ill does not presuppose a sloution for an age old problem.
