Trump responds to calls for ‘extreme vetting’ for buying guns: ‘Hundreds more’ would have been killed

President Donald Trump has an uncanny knack for say the right thing in just such a way that drives the liberal media wild and he did it again this week in responding to the tragic shooting at a Texas church.

Speaking at a press conference in Japan, the president noted that “hundreds more” would have died in the massacre that claimed 26 lives had stricter gun control laws prevented the local resident who confronted the killer from owning a firearm.

“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 happens to have a gun or a rifle in his trunk,” Trump said in response to being asked if he’d consider “extreme vetting for people trying to buy a gun.”

The immediate response to Sunday’s shooting from the left, as expected, was to call for tighter gun control laws — this coming from the same folks who also blamed the NRA

The incredible irony being that the man who engaged in a gun battle with the killer, Stephen Willeford, is an NRA instructor who brought the human carnage to an end.

“And I can only say this:  If he didn’t have a gun, instead of having 26 dead, you would have had hundreds more dead,” the president said.  “So that’s the way I feel about it.  Not going to help.”

Willeford gives an emotional blow-by-blow description of gun fight that ensued in the video below:
