The mass shooting at an AME church in Charleston, S.C., Wednesday night perpetrated by a white man who confessed he was trying to start a race war has led to the predictable emotional appeals to old party lines, from gun control to more salvation and less government, especially in a 24 hour news cycle.

South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham (R), who’s running for president, says his niece attended school with Dylann Roof, and that he seemed like an “Adam Lanza” type. While Graham didn’t refer to other seemingly obvious motivations, like trying to start a race war, he did offer a solution that matches the response to radical Islamist terrorism more closely policy-wise, if not rhetorically.

Graham’s comments, via CBS News:

“I bet there were some indicators early on that this guy was not quite there. Just being able to track people – put them into systems where they can be deterred or stopped. But it’s very complicated in a nation of 300 million people where you have freedom of movement and freedom of thought. 300 million of us and unfortunately every now and then, something like this happens. And we’ll see.”
