Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump weighed in on the theater shooting in Lafayette, Louisiana, in which three people were killed including the gunman. Nine others were injured by the tea party supporting, liberal hating gunman.
According to Trump, if the moviegoers were allowed to bring guns with them the shooting could have been prevented.
Raw Story reports:
During an interview with CNN host Jake Tapper on Sunday, Trump argued that it was wrong to focus on gun safety laws after John Russell Houser allegedly shot 11 people on Friday.
“These are sick people,” Trump said.. “This has nothing to do with guns, this has to do with the mentality of these people.”
Trump declared himself to be a “big Second Amendment person,” said added that people need “protection against the bad ones who have the guns.”
Yes, because a little crossfire never hurt anyone.
“You take them away from the good people, and the bad ones are going to have target practice,” the hotel magnate said. “Like for instance, the gun free zone with the Marines [in Chattanooga], that was disgraceful… This guy shot them, they were like sitting ducks… and if they would have had their guns, they probably would all be alive or most of them.”
“We have to protect our Second Amendment and we can’t take little chunks here — you know, they keep talking about, take these little chunks out,” he continued to say. “And you have to be very careful about that.”
Tapper wondered if the Second Amendment also protected the right of Lafayette shooter John Russell Houser, who had been involuntarily committed previously.
There’s no need to wonder because Houser bought his gun legally from a pawnshop.

Houser’s background consisted of domestic violence and arson, yet he obtained his weapon without issue.
“If a person is mentally ill and it’s proven and it’s documented, you have to be extremely careful not to let them kill people. Frankly, he should be committed,” Trump said without offering an explanation as to how that could be done at this point in “guns everywhere” America.
“Because he has the kind of a record where he should be in a institution. He was a very sick puppy.”
I don’t want to go to a movie if I have to be armed. People, such as in Charleston, South Carolina, do not want to have to go to church while armed.
The moviegoers would have to be on alert during three hour films, waiting for someone to pounce.
Houser epitomizes the Tea Party. The hatred displayed in that movement has been well documented.
Bobby Jindal also believes now is not the time to discuss gun control.
