Trump condemns bigotry, blames video games for mass shootings

Trump condemns bigotry, blames video games for mass shootings”

This past weekend, mass shootings in both Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas left at least 30 dead and more than 50 injured, prompting another national debate on gun control and violence.

"It is too easy today for troubled youth to surround themselves with a culture that celebrates violence". Trump smiled as the audience applauded and said, "That's only in the Panhandle you can get away with that statement".

This followed the emergence of an anti-immigrant screed published by the alleged Texas shooter that eerily echoed some of Trump's own campaign speech statements about an "invasion" across the US-Mexican border. Crusius was in custody on Monday, charged with capital murder.

A 21-year-old from Allen, a suburb of Dallas, surrendered to police outside the El Paso Walmart. A motive in the that case not immediately evident.

He had tweeted earlier on Monday that increased background checks at the time of gun purchases should be considered, but he did not mention this in his speech.

"We vow to act with urgent resolve", he said. "And Trump himself has reneged on previous pledges to strengthen gun laws".

Less than a week after the mosque shootings, New Zealand moved to ban "military-style" semi-automatic weapons and high-capacity magazines; similarly, after a mass shooting in 1996, Australia enacted sweeping gun bans within two weeks.

"May God bless the memory of those who perished in Toledo", Trump said.

It was not immediately clear what specific steps Trump wants or what other action he plans to take with Congress on summer recess and USA lawmakers not scheduled to return to Washington until September.

According to the Associated Press, "The Democrat-led House has passed a gun control bill that includes fixes to the nation's firearm background check system, but it has languished in the Republican-controlled Senate".

Following the shooting in OH on Sunday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer took to Twitter to urge Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to call the Senate back from summer recess for an emergency session to "put the House-passed universal background checks legislation on the Senate floor for debate and a vote immediately".

"Instead of flailing around blaming everything under the sun, if the president is serious about "strong background checks" there's one thing he can do: Demand Sen".

Trump also could invoke his power under the Constitution to call back Congress.

As Democrats have called on Mr Trump to tone down his rhetoric, he blamed the news media for the nation's woes.

"The Media has a big responsibility to life and safety in our Country".
