Back in early 2017, Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, spearheaded the repeal effort and said the regulation unfairly stigmatizes the disabled and infringes on their constitutional right to bear arms. He said that the mental disorders covered through the regulation are filled with “vague characteristics that do not fit into the federal mentally defective standard” prohibiting someone from buying or owning a gun.

Yet today, Grassley says that the reason for the shootings like the one that happened yesterday in Parkland, Florida, is that the ‘government’ has not done a good job of getting these mentally ill people ‘into the system.’

Yeah, right asshole.
