President Trump is currently on a 12 day tour of Asia and has been drilled by reporters about what needs to be done about gun control after a church shooting in Texas carried out by white, male Devin Patrick Kelley, who killed 26 people (including men, women, elders and children). One journalist (who is my favorite by far) asked if Trump considered extreme vetting for people wanting to buy guns like he wants extreme vetting for immigrants. His response was:
"If you did what you're suggesting there would have been no difference three days ago, and you might not have had that very brave person who happened to have a gun in his truck and shoot him, and hit him and neutralize him. This is a mental health problem at the highest level."
So, it isn't a gun issue but a mental health issue? Even though it was stemming from a domestic violence situation? Even being that the gunman was discharged from the Army prior to this incident for assaulting his spouse and child? I think not.
Let us know what you think below.
