Rick Santorum used the latest horrific massacre to take a swipe at single mothers.

Former Pennsylvania Republican Sen. Rick Santorum seems to believe that school shootings can be stopped by having more two-parent homes.

Less than two weeks after the horrific mass shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida, Santorum went on CNN to all but blame single mothers for the epidemic.

Specifically, he cited “broken homes without dads” as being something that is “common in these shootings.”

“We want to talk about things we can work together on? How about working together to try to see what we can do to get more dads involved in the lives of young kids?” Santorum asked.

Host Jake Tapper quickly pointed out a flaw in Santorum’s logic, as far as the Parkland shooting was concerned.

“His dad had died,” Tapper told Santorum. “It wasn’t a ‘broken home.'”

Santorum has often sought to blame society’s ills on people who stray from right-wing conservative norms.

He has insisted in the past that same-sex marriage would cause the country to “fall” and that American culture is rife with “corruption” from rock music and the NBA.

And he has attacked single mothers before, as well.

“We are seeing the fabric of this country fall apart, and it’s falling apart because of single moms,” Santorum said during his 1994 Senate campaign.

To drive that repugnant point home, one month later he insisted that single moms were “simply breeding more criminals.”

Even after the horrifying events in Parkland, which left 17 people dead including 14 teenagers, Santorum can’t help but drag out his tired conservative attacks.

Anything to help the Republican Party avoid focusing on the urgent need for gun safety reform, apparently.
