Conservatives See Mental Illness,
Social Breakdown Behind Shootings

Conservatives say shootings such as those in El Paso and Dayton are the result of mental illness and a deterioration in society’s moral groundings , according to a poll conducted by The Conservative Caucus.

The breakdown of the family was cited by 86% as a cause of mass shootings, while mental illness and social media hate groups were each chosen by 83%.  Loss of faith in God was blamed by 84%.  Fewer than 2% put the blame on the President, and only 0.5% on the Second Amendment.

The Conservative Caucus is a grass roots public policy action organization, formed in 1974.  It was active in defeating the SALT II Treaty, repealing the Catastrophic Coverage Act, blocking the Clinton health-care takeover, impeaching President Clinton, stopping amnesty for illegal aliens, persuading the House of Representatives to sue the President regarding ObamaCare, and promoting the confirmation of Justice Kavanaugh.
