As always, when there is a mass shooting in America, Republicans go out of their way to blame everything except guns. And last week’s mass murder (that left eight students and two teachers dead at a Texas high school) was no exception. But this may be a first: a Republican senator seems to be blaming … the victims?

Oh, well, okay then. The killer’s dad—who, by the way, owned the unsecured guns used in the mass murder—doesn’t blame his son. Sounds legit enough for John Cornyn to run with it. Because it’s never, ever, ever the gun’s fault.
Thoughts and prayers.
