And I think I'm one part British now, since I just went for a cuppa (aka a cup of tea with milk and sugar) after coming home from my uncle's place (he passed away about 1 and 1/2 hours ago)

When is our next election?
I think the issue is more about mental health, and I don’t think on the day of a shooting we shouldn’t be pointing fingers.
There was no actual election
I think mental health is a big part, but namely social isolation and alienation. a lot of these shooters feel isolated from their communities so they get wooed into the far-right. no longer are you just a Texas loser, you are part of a long lasting ethnocultural tradition which is fighting for survival. you suddenly have a sense of purpose, and you are willing to die for it, but you also feel so alienated that you lack empathy or any strong attachment to actually existing human beings.
I don’t know them, but yeah, far rightness is a big problem.
Spitting facts. I can only imagine how strong the pull towards extremism must be for someone emotionally/mentally isolated and vulnerable. That is something quite frightening to think about, especially how hard it is to identify and how quick it can escalate.
