Though the left tries to blame mass shootings on conservatives, most of the attackers are actually liberals, Ann Coulter says.
In fact, she believes, liberalism is a mental health issue.
"I was the first to say, and others ripped it off, liberalism is an aspect of mental illness," Coulter said Monday on Fox News Channel's "Hannity."
Host Sean Hannity noted that last week's Colorado school shooter
was an avid socialist. Coulter said that every political assassination attempt in America that has been politically motivated came at the hands of a leftist.

When they are not a "run-of-the-mill nut," she said, they are always liberals.
"They are communitarians, they're socialists, they're communists," she said. "It is always, always, always liberals. There has never been a right-wing assassination attempt on a president or a member of Congress."
Rush Limbaugh made the same claim
on his radio show Monday.
"The media doesn't want you to know this, but practically every one of these young kids shooting up schools is inspired by something to do with leftism, socialism, what have you," Limbaugh said. "When they can't tie 'em to the tea party, you don't hear about it anymore. You hear the 'mental health' explanation. Well, what mental health problem? Liberalism, guaranteed, is what's causing this."
Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh, Coulter said, was a pot smoker. Marijuana has been shown
to set off someone with a predisposition to schizophrenia, she said.
But not everyone was buying Coulter's argument. Writer Ben Greenman tweeted:
