Them: the real problem is mental health
M: fine, we'll try it your way. Let's pass comprehensive access to mental healthcare for everyone.
T: oh, not *that* kind of mental health. I just want to call them crazy and not do anything.
M: so more robust background checks with a mental health screen?
T: no, you are going to hurt GOOD ones
M: how do you tell good from bad then?
T: the bad ones shoot the wrong people
T: no, that's invasive and wasteful spending
M: so we should...do nothing?
T: no, sell more guns! That's good for the economy!
