Thank you Sunny Hostin for expressing what I haven’t heard many people in the media say.

If you watch The View, you might have caught the co-host’s response to the Florida shooting. She said we can’t continue to blame the shootings on mental illness and contrary to what many believe, mentally ill people are often victims of crime.
