Heavy Metal not to Blame

Once again, Rush Limbaugh and his cronies are trying to blame heavy metal music on the shootings in Arizona. This at least allows them to believe, in their own little twisted worlds, that any other cause is not possible. Maybe what caused Loughner to commit such an atrocity will never fully be known. He did have metal health problems which, from what I read, went ignored. Especially it seems that in the US, whenever public budgets are slashed, mental healthcare is usually a target.  But I guess it is easier to blame music, politics or even the gun culture. I’m not pro or anti gun. I do believe, however, that Loughner never should have been allowed to have one.
