Strongly agree with, and really appreciate, this response. When we stigmatize mental illness, we create even more problems. Violence can easily be the result of ideology, cultural norms and / or contextual stimuli, rather than mental illness.

In a country so culturally addicted to weapons of mass violence it’s disingenuous to suggest that the people who cause harm with them are sicker than anyone else.
