Also available on the nbc app

David Harbour is taking issue with the controversial suggestion that mental illness is a primary cause of the rise in mass shootings across the country. The "Stranger Things" star sounded off in a heated and emotional series of tweets, explaining that the mentally ill are statistically far more likely to be victims of violence, not perpetrators. His message followed a polarizing remark from President Trump, in which he declared that "mental illness and hatred pulls the trigger, not the gun."
