'After every mass shooting, the liberals start the blame game.

State Rep. Candice Keller - a Republican from Middletown, about 25 miles southwest of Dayton - listed a slew of reasons why she believes Connor Betts, 24, gunned down nine people, including his sister, with an assault-style rifle early Sunday.

Jane Timken, chairwoman for the Ohio Republican Party, said in a statement Monday morning to Fox 19 Now that Keller's post was "inappropriate" in light of the recent events in El Paso and Dayton.

While a number of politicians and members of the public are calling for common sense gun control and a condemnation of racism and misogyny after two shootings that appear to have been enacted by shooters who were racist and misogynistic, respectively, Republican Candice Keller would instead place the blame elsewhere.

A lawmaker in OH blamed the breakdown of the "traditional American family", gay marriage and "drag queen advocates" for the Dayton massacre in a since-deleted Facebook rant.

In Keller's post - which was later deleted - she offered a long list of who and what should be blamed for the shootings, including "the breakdown of the traditional American family", "the acceptance of recreational marijuana, Democratic members of Congress ("many members whom are open [ly] anti-Semitic"), and "snowflakes, who can't accept a duly-elected president".

"Did I forget anybody?" Continuing down her list of 12-item blame list was former President Barack Obama for "disrespect to our law enforcement" and professional athletes who "hate our flag and National Anthem" for creating hatred for our veterans.

Keller's post has been criticised by her political opponents. "She is an embarrassment to her party, to conservatives, to Butler County and to the state Legislature".

Cincinnati City Councilman Chris Seelbach, a Democrat who is openly gay, shared a screenshot of Keller's post on Twitter and urged his followers to call her office in Columbus, as Cincinnati Enquirer first reported.

Keller has a history of making incendiary comments.

"Those people aren't even buried yet and she came out with these comments", Jones said, according to the publication.

Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost reposted Keller's message on Twitter, adding that "the blame belongs to the evil man who killed those people".
