President Trump on Monday said the horrific shooting at a small Texas church isn’t a “guns situation” — it’s only about mental health.
“This was a very, based on preliminary reports, a very deranged individual. A lot of problems over a long period of time,” Trump said Monday during a joint news conference in Japan. “We have a lot of mental health problems in our country, as do other countries. But this isn’t a guns situation.”
Gunman Devin Kelley, decked out in tactical gear, on Sunday used an assault rifle to kill 26 congregants of a Baptist church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, authorities said. His victims ranged in age from 18 months to 77.
