In this quote, Barack Obama is criticizing members of Congress who often attribute mass shootings to mental illness as a way to deflect from discussing gun control measures. He suggests they use this as an excuse to avoid taking legislative action on firearms.

Obama then directly challenges them by saying “here’s your chance to support these efforts”, referring to bills that would increase funding for improved mental health screening and services. His implication is that if they are truly concerned about the role of mental health, they should financially back solutions rather than just blaming shootings on it rhetorically.

So in essence, Obama is calling out the inconsistency between their stated concerns and their willingness to support related policy solutions or “put their money where their mouth is” on an issue they frequently cite.
