Just yesterday we heard from wounded warrior J.R. Salzman, who’s had it with post-traumatic stress disorder being used as the media’s “old standby excuse” whenever a soldier is involved in a shooting. Moms Demand Action for Guns Sense founder Shannon Watts, though, diagnosed Wednesday’s Fort Hood shooter with PTSD, much to the exasperation of Dana Loesch and others.

The source to which Watts refers uses research from Media Matters for America, and even the MMFA report states that shooter Ivan Lopez had not been diagnosed with PTSD, and had self-reported a traumatic brain injury, despite no record of his being wounded in action.


‘AMEN!’ Dana Perino’s must-read plea strikes a chord with veterans
