Donald Trump Says Gun Laws Don't Stop Gun Violence

In the wake of the horrific Oregon shooting, Donald Trump spoke with NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday and discussed gun control.

There he said, “You take Chicago, you take Baltimore, you take various other places where you have tremendous gun violence and death. 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. 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. And when it comes to the schools, it really is mental health. It's a mental problem.”

Trump said that he watched President Obama's statements regarding the Umpqua Community College murders, and stated that he understands "exactly what he's saying, But, you know, no matter what you do, guns, no guns, it doesn't matter. You have people that are mentally ill. And they're gonna come through the cracks. And they're going to do things that people will not even believe are possible."

Furthermore, Trump criticized the Umpqua College Campus's gun policy by saying "I see it was a gun-free zone. And you were not allowed to have guns at all in that particular area. And you could make the case that it woulda been a lot better had people had guns because they had something to fire back.”

Trump then advised against using the shooter's name by stating “But in the meantime, the news is all using his name. And everybody now knows his name. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you wouldn’t cover it? Because I think that’s part of the problem. You have copycats. They wanna do it. They think it’s wonderful. They’re sick people.”
