The suspected bomber operating in Austin, Texas has blown himself up when confronted by police. BBC

"He's thinking of taking some time to figure out what he wants to do...maybe a [religious] mission trip," his mother wrote.

In the blog called "Defining my Stance", he purportedly describes beliefs that "gay marriage should be illegal", opposition to abortion and why the sex offender registry should be eliminated.

In the blog, he defines himself as "a conservative".

He planted at least four bombs, killing two people - both black - and injuring others.

The Issue
What specifically is the issue?

Is it mental health?

Is there evidence that right-wing mental health is any worse than left wing mental health?

As for who he blew up, I doubt he targeted any specific person. He just was obsessed with either explosions or notoriety. Again, the issue in my mind is mental health and identification of possible rogue terrorists before they act.

There might be, a new study found that right leaning people have enhanced fear centres in the brain. The more you make them feel safe the more left leaning they become.
