CNN mass shooting “expert” @JamesAGagliano - who blocked me earlier this year for asking for data to back up his claim that video games spur gun violence - is now television on blaming the Santa Clarita #schoolshooting on mental illness.
Mental illness is not an evidence-based risk factor for violence; 50% of Americans meet criteria for mental illness during lifetime. People with mental illness commit less than 5% of violent crimes and are more likely to be victims than perpetrators.
“So many people have said that mental illness is related to mass shootings from disparate political beliefs, for so many decades, and so many different times that it’s easy to just accept the premise without questioning it.”

This is “illusory truth.” time.com/5645747/gun-vi…

Let's talk about "national emergencies."
There are THOUSANDS of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women in this country. Sisters, daughters, mothers, human beings that disappear without a trace. Where is the declaration over that crisis? #MMIW #MMIWG #MMIR
In a country determined to place nationalism at the forefront of domestic and foreign policy, we have a shocking number of homeless veterans. In states like Arizona, the number of #veteran suicides is 90.4 per 100,000. kdminer.com/news/2019/feb/…

It's been 5 months since the #Parkland massacre. On the 14th of the month I've been tweeting each of the portraits I drew.

"He was a very funny kid, outgoing and sometimes really quiet," wrote Miguel Duque, about his baby brother #MartinDuque.
What a disgrace for our country that students are murdered in school.
Remembering Martin, 5 months after his death.

Cara means "friend" in #Irish.
Cara's funeral was held on her 15th birthday.
Her father came here from Ireland to pursue the American dream.

Heartbreaking.

1) Let me, a Broward schoolteacher near Marjory Stoneman Douglas, give a perspective on school shootings from the inside.
2) Once a year, my co-workers and I are birefed by a LEO on what to do if a gunman enters the school.

Inevitably, we listen to the stories of gun violence at similar schools.

I realize the LEO has given this spiel so much, it's automatic.
3) Rarely, an intimidating stranger will stroll purposefully down the main hallway of a school.

They are either a pissed-off parent, the plainclothes cop you're expected to stop in a drill, or the man who'll orphan your children.

Decide.
