Raley's post had been shared more than 690,000 times by Monday morning. 

She goes on to say that the mental health, lack of moral values, violent video games and "horrendous lack of parental support" is all contributing to the shootings.

She concluded the post by asking, "When are we going to take our own responsibility seriously?"
