It's Monday morning, and the only thing that can make it bearable is this week's viral John Oliver clip. Oliver turned his focus to America's mental health system, aka the National Excuse to Not Talk About Gun Control. To quote Oliver, "Calling it a clusterf*ck is an insult to clusterf*cks."

The aftermath of a mass shooting is the worst time to talk about mental illness, he points out, because the vast majority of people struggling with mental illness are non-violent, and the majority of gun-related deaths are not perpetrated by the mentally ill.
