Gohmert Thinks Blaming a Gun in a Mass Shooting is The Same as Blaming Spoons For Obesity(Video)

U.S. Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) talked about the D.C. Navy Yard mass shooting, discussing what he feels is the cause of this tragedy.

John Bachman asked the Gohmert if Congress should be talking about reshaping the mental health industry in response to the massacre.

Gohmert replies:

I absolutely do. It obviously has an effect, and it’s interesting that these people seem to have a common tie with extremely violent video games.

He continues:

It is important to note that it is our own system that’s breaking down. How in the world do you give a legitimate ID to a guy who got ousted out of the Navy for gunfire incidents? I mean, good night. How do you give this guy access to anything?

I don’t think his ID is what killed people, but carry on..

I see a lot of problems here and blaming this on guns is like saying the big problem with obesity is we’ve got too many spoons. It’s not the spoons, it’s not the guns. It’s the people who have them. There’s a lot of things that need to be done, but one of them is to deal with the mental health of people who have guns.
