Trump: The Problem Isn’t Guns
Via The Hill:
GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump said in an interview broadcast Sunday morning that the U.S. cities with the strongest gun laws often have the biggest problems, saying gun violence will happen “no matter what you do.”
“You take Chicago, you take Baltimore, you take various other places where you have tremendous gun violence and death,” Trump said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “The strictest laws in the United States– in the world– for guns happens to be Chicago where they have a lot of problems. Baltimore, a lot of the places where you have the biggest problem is where they have the strongest laws.”
“I don’t think it’s about laws,” Trump said during a gun control discussion in the wake of a mass shooting at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Ore. that left nine people dead.
“The strongest, the most stringent laws are in almost every case the worse places. It doesn’t seem to work. It’s a tough situation,” Trump added. “And when it comes to the schools, it really is mental health. It’s a mental problem.” More
