It's the same with the Fort Hood shooter, Jared Loughner, the Colorado shooter, and so on. These people are simply crazy, and their craziness attracted them to both moronic politics and to murder.
That's not to say we can't mitigate the threat of crazy gunmen. We can't cure crazy, but we can do something about a culture saturated with guns, pointlessly hateful rhetoric, and little or no mental health strategy. We can't stop every madman, but we don't have to make his rampage easier.
You can't stop all the crazy people from going crazy, but you sure can limit the damage they can do.
