Trump taps real problem with tragic American shootings, let’s just say, it’s NOT guns

With the gun grabbers predictable assigning fault in all the wrong places in response to the massacre Sunday at a Texas church, President Donald Trump said the shooting “isn’t a guns situation” but instead “a mental health problem at the highest level.”

“We have a lot of mental health problems in our country, as do other countries,” a very somber President Trump said Monday at a news conference in Japan.

At least 26 people were killed at a church in Sutherland Springs, a small town east of San Antonio, and more than 20 others wounded when a gunman wearing tactical gear opened fire. The killer’s motive is unknown and he was later found dead in his vehicle after fleeing the scene when armed local residents intervened during the massacre.

Trump called the mass shooting a “very, very sad event,” saying it was carried out by “a very deranged individual with a lot of problems over a long period of time.”

The gunman, Devin Kelley, 26, had reportedly been dishonorable discharged from the Air Force and could not legally purchase a firearm.

The shooting may have been much worse, were it not for the actions of an armed local resident who confronted the killer on the scene, which was noted by the president.

“Fortunately, somebody else had a gun that was shooting in the opposite direction, otherwise it would have been…much worse,” Trump said.
