Trump blames "mental health" rather than guns for the Texas massacre

"Mental health is your problem here", Trump said.

His rampage on a Sunday morning, during mass, in First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs resulted in the murder of 26 people aged 5 to 72.

Trump added that if the Good Samaritan didn't have a gun, "instead of having 26 dead, you would have had hundreds more dead". "Not going to help".

Trump also pointed to Chicago as proof that stricter gun laws don't work.

President Xi Jinping Will Keynote APEC Summit in Vietnam
The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) countries, from which the United States withdrew in January, will meet on Friday. The 11 member countries have a combined GDP of $12.4 trillion with total trade topping $356.3 billion a year ago .

The president pointed to Chicago - "the city with the strongest gun laws in our nation" - as proof that those measures are unsuccessful. "If (Willeford) did not have a gun or rifle, it would have been a much worse situation in the great state of Texas". About 60 percent are suicides, 36 percent are homicides, and mass shootings make up about 2 percent of total gun deaths every year.

City officials also have noted most guns used in crimes come from outside Chicago - with many coming from Indiana, Wisconsin, and MS, where gun laws are much more lax.

The terrorist responsible for the shooting, Daniel Patrick Kelley, was in possession of two handguns and a military grade rifle, and, should not have legally been able to purchase said weapons because of a domestic violence conviction while serving in the Air Force.

"Initial information indicates that Kelley's domestic violence offense was not entered into the National Criminal Information Center database by the Holloman Air Force Base Office of Special Investigations", Air Force spokesperson Ann Stefanek wrote in an email.
