Trump blames mass shootings on mentally ill

Trump said he had been speaking with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and many other Republicans about the problem of gun violence and that "they don't want to have insane people, dangerous people, really bad people having guns." "We don't want crazy people owning guns," the president added.

"It's them.

They pull the trigger.

The gun doesn't pull the trigger.

They pull the trigger.

So we have to look very seriously at mental illness." The president is under pressure to curb gun violence following mass shootings that killed dozens of people this month in Texas and Ohio.

His comments came as he started a trip from New Jersey to speak to a campaign rally in New Hampshire.

"We're looking at the whole gun situation," Trump said when asked whether he was pressing Republicans on tougher background checks for gun buyers.
