President Trump on Thursday told supporters in New Hampshire that he would “always uphold the Second Amendment” and suggested that the construction of new mental health facilities would help curb gun violence.
The president lamented the lack of mental health institutions as he spoke about the need to keep guns away from people with mental illnesses. The comments come as the White House and Congress examine new gun laws after recent mass shootings in Dayton, Ohio, and El Paso, Texas.
The article goes on to state the following:
“It’s not the gun that pulls the trigger. It’s the person that pulls the trigger,” Trump said, earning a roar of approval from the crowd in Manchester.
“We can’t make it harder for good, solid, law-abiding citizens to protect themselves,” he said. “We will always uphold the right to self-defense, and we will always uphold the Second Amendment.”
TRUMP on guns: “It’s not the gun that pulls the trigger, it’s the person holding the guy.”
He then says “we are going to have serious consideration to building” new mental institutions, adding, “we will be taking mentally deranged and dangerous people off of the streets.” pic.twitter.com/w7cZg2wKQ7
