Trump Claims Gun Control Would Have Killed ‘Hundreds More’ in Texas Church Shooting

n the days following the mass shooting at a Texas church that left 26 dead, including several children, President Donald Trump has continued to spew his message that now is not the time for gun control. In his early statements about the shooting, he refused to call it a "guns situation," instead laying the blame on a "deranged individual" with a mental health problem. Now, it seems he is not backing down from this position. During a press conference in Seoul, South Korea, the president doubled down on his statements, claiming that if there was stricter gun control, hundreds more would have died that day.
