Trump Says Stronger Vetting of Gun Buyers Wouldn't Have Prevented Texas Deaths

President Donald Trump blamed the Texas church shooting that left at least 26 dead on mental health problems, but experts say that it's much more complicated than that.

The mass shooting at a rural Texas church Sunday is the latest instance where President Donald Trump did not call for immediate policy changes when the suspect in a large-scale attack has no apparent ties to other countries or foreign terror groups.

"And you might not have had that very courageous person who happened to have a rifle in his truck go out and shoot him and hit him and neutralize him", he said, referring to Stephen Willeford, who drew a rifle from his home safe and exchanged gunfire with the suspect, 26-year-old Devin Patrick Kelley. "We could let a little time go by, but it's okay", Trump replied.

A Washington Post-ABC News poll from 2015 found respondents were twice as likely to say mass shootings are due to problems "identifying and treating people with mental health problems rather than inadequate gun control laws".

During his visit to South Korea, Donald Trump was asked whether he'd push for the same "extreme vetting" of gun-owners he's proposed for refugees and USA visa holders.

A Duke professor said many violent crimes are the result of someone with impulsive anger who has a gun, not necessarily someone with a mental disorder. It was loose enforcement of the law that led to what happened. They should be commended for stopping a killer from escaping, but by the time they saw what was happening, the damage was already done. "Sometimes they become far more depressed, and sometimes they become suicidal". The suspect, Devin Kelley, appears to have been motivated by a domestic dispute, the Texas Department of Public Safety said.

Homicide rates, after a two-decade decline, increased by about 20 percent over the past two years in the United States. If implemented nationally, it could prevent even more deaths. None of the 10 most devastating shooting events with the highest casualty counts occurred during the 1994-2004 ban.

Trump's more muted response to gun violence contrasts with his swift call for legislative and military action following the October 31 truck attack in New York City. Maybe when he's out of office and not relying on the generosity of the NRA to help him get elected?

We need leaders who are willing to recognize the rights inherent in the Second Amendment, but who also note that no right is without its own limits. "Which one of these would be out of the equation w more gun control?" And politicians who say otherwise are disregarding their constituents' wishes, favoring a campaign check instead.
