15. What?

 

James Holmes had no record of mental illness.

He may have had no record of it, but it seems pretty clear he had it:

Look, I feel sorry for anyone who's sick. And it sucks that we live in a country where wealth determines your health care.

But we cannot refuse to look the problem in the truth here: Almost universally, when one of these mass shootings happens we find out that there were clear underlying mental issues at play. And often, the shooter was taking drugs for mental illness.
