Mass shooters aren’t mentally ill—they’re domestic abusers, researchers say

08/11/2019 11:03 am ET

CNN says 49 of 50 Republicans contacted refused to discuss mass shootings

Though Trump blamed “mental illness and hatred” for mass shootings, scientists say the real issue is violent, angry men with no impulse control who also have a history of domestic violence against women.

Per research, many perpetrators behind the deadliest mass shootings in America are doing so due to problems with family ties.

In at least 54% of shootings, a current or former partner or family member was shot, per an Everytown report.

That means mass shootings in the U.S., at their root, are related to domestic or family violence, particularly violence against women.

They’re planned in advance, “usually as acts of revenge or retribution for perceived slights and wrongs,” says psychiatrist Michael Stone.
