Trump Vows to Uphold Second Amendment After Shootings

Trump Vows to Uphold Second Amendment After Shootings”

Mr Trump is the latest US President under pressure to curb gun violence following mass shootings that killed dozens of people this month in Texas and Ohio.

United States President Donald Trump said on Thursday (Aug 15) that he supports meaningful background checks for gun buyers, but told reporters that those responsible for recent mass shootings were mentally ill and the USA should build more mental institutions. "They pulled the trigger", he added. "I do want people to remember the words 'mental illness.' These people are mentally ill".

Conducted following back-to-back mass-shootings this month in Texas and OH, the survey asked 1,013 registered voters for their opinions on proposed gun control measures.

"It's the person that pulls the trigger".

U.S. president Donald Trump has held his ninth campaign rally of the year- this time in New Hampshire. He has appeared at times to endorse expanded background checks but has also shifted his focus to mental illness, violent video games and "red flag" incentives for states to deny guns to people deemed a danger to themselves and others. These people are mentally ill and nobody talks about that, but these are mentally ill people. "These are mentally ill people and people have to start thinking about it", Mr Trump said.

Earlier this year, Trump threatened to veto two bills passed by the Democratic-led House that aimed to strengthen background checks, saying they did not adequately protect the Second Amendment rights of gun owners.

"That was a awful thing for our country", he said, referring to de-institutionalization of the mentally ill.

However, others calling for the return of institutions have pointed to the relative inability of people within the community to care for those with severe forms of mental illness such as schizophrenia. "We can't let these people be on the streets", he added.

Among Democrats, 87 percent blamed Trump to some degree, along with 50 percent of independent voters, but even among Republicans, more than one in five laid some of the blame for mass shootings at Trump's feet.

"They want to see something happen.it's very simple".

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has rebuffed calls from Democrats to end the August recess early and call senators back to tackle gun violence.
