2 Mass Shootings in 1 Day
This is old, but worth revisiting. 
How could I guess he would go straight to blaming mental illness, the internet and the media?  Don't ever blame guns when the NRA is filtering money through his pockets. 


Trump blames mental illness, video games and social media for mass shootings
Mr Trump stopped short of calling for gun reforms, instead saying it was "mental illness and hatred" that "pulls the trigger".

Donald Trump has placed the blame of the US' latest mass shootings on video games, mental illness and social media, after 29 people died in attacks in Texas and Ohio over the weekend.
They were part of a raft of new reforms Mr Trump announced at the White House, including government action with social media companies to detect "mass shooters" before they strike.
However, he once again stopped short of calling for gun reform and instead focused on mental health support, saying: "Mental illness and hatred pulls the trigger - not the gun".
Doubling down on his suggestion that the attackers had mental health issues, the president called for new laws that better identify "mentally disturbed individuals", adding that those people should "not only get treatment, but when necessary, involuntary confinement."
He called this weekend's attacks in Texas and Ohio "barbaric", saying they were "crimes against all humanity", adding "we are sickened by this monstrous evil, the cruelty, the hatred, the malice, the bloodshed and the terror."

Mr Trump also called for the US to "condemn racism, bigotry and white supremacy."
He also criticised the role of "gruesome video games", adding that they are "common place" and "too easy" for young people to get a hold off, saying they "celebrate violence".
there are so many factors that go into why this is happening yet we as a country have taken no steps to reduce the problem. after sandy hook i lost all hope in politicians on any side making headway in the matter.

its scary at work that now we have "active shooter" drills. i miss the simpler times.
