  • There’s no way to predict when someone is going to go on a killing spree. Mental health reformation won’t prevent the killings, restricting the supply and access to guns obviously will.

  • If mental illness was actually the problem, I think you would have to further qualify that. Mental illness does not spew out bullets into people. People with mental illness do not spew out bullets into people. It would only be people with mental illness who also have guns that could do that. One of those problems seems easy to fix.

  • The problem is the easy access to guns by anyone who wants one!! Weak Gun legislation is the main problem!!! Politicians are in the big corporations deep pockets and they serve their masters!! NOT the people who elected them into office!!! Most and perhaps all their campaign promises are just to get us to vote and elect them! Once in office, they do a 180' turn and ignore the people and their promises!!! Their goals: Get as much money as they can while in office/it lasts!!! I thought it only happened in and with third world countries!!! I see a trend towards self-serving politicians!!!

  • The assertion that guns have no part in the perpetration of violence is absurd.. What a crazy old man .No video game, no mental health issues caused this – just clear and unadulterated hate spurred on by a president who applauds white nationalists and consistently denigrates immigrants to this country.

  • The “Orange one” has to pander to the “red hat wearing” intellectuals who chant at his “Nuremberg type” rallies –

  • Feinstein put in a law to ban all semi automatic weapons and bans all non government ownership of radioactive materials… like in nuclear power plants.

  • I am for profiling to stop gun violence, the Democrats have been blocking right wing laws on it for decades in favor of total bans. Japan gives a life prison sentence for having a gun and prison is incredibly harsh there… but there was a knifing the day after Columbine killing 9 children. apples to pineapples.

  • a rally in Florida, President Trump said the government is unable to violently attack immigrants.

    Someone in the crowd yelled “shoot them!”

    The President and the crowd erupted into laughter and cheers and then Trump said “Only in the panhandle can you get away with that statement.”

  • mental illness is right. donnie is insane and so are his followers. all need extreme care in an institution if the country is to survive.

  • While I support the second amendment vehemently, there is a grey state that would use anything you say, anything you text. AI analytics that show who you are to justify taking your rights due to "mental health.". If they can't just strait up take people's guns, they will set leagal precidents that make it so gun ownership is allowed to those who are complicit with the workings of society, who, "play the game"; "support the party line", and condone the corporate takeover. These are the people that will have access to guns. The mafia and the rich that support them, they will have access to guns, not Patriots.

  • It's not the gun. It's the virtually open access to guns, especially the ones designed for killing people in large numbers. Not to mention the insane reasons given for not requiring some kind of background check to see if a person has a history of violence, making threats against others, or is mentally unstable. There are those, including a Supreme Court ruling, that claim the Constitution specifically gives Americans the right to own guns. I've read the 2nd Amendment many times. The only thing it specifically says about possessing guns is in the case of Militias, aka Citizen Armies, which was necessary BEFORE our young country had the resources to fund a National Army. Look at the Defense Budgets over the last 100 years. I think we have that covered now.

  • If there was a case of look who's talking tRump is it! Games have little or nothing to do with it! If anything they give a safety outlet to vent and may prevent one from "going postal"! It is the violent hate filled rhetoric coming out of that big ugly s**t hole of tRumps mouth and his base that are "putting out fire with gas" that is the problem! The toxic flammable sludge of hate has always been here but tRump is like a deranged sick child that likes to pay with matches around gas! For the Love of GOD and the entire planet take the "Football" away from tRump he has access to the most dangerous weapons ever created do we really want a hate filled psychopathic narcissist to have access to the nuke codes!

  • Well maybe trump shouldnt have rolled back obama's restrictions and background checks on people with mental illness trying to buy guns.

  • But rather than have the government spend much on any kind of health care let alone mental health care you'll throw out the word socialism like it's a bogey man and also "communism" which isn't even relevant. You should all vote for Bernie.

  • Then stop trying to cut healthcare and provide the American people with "free" mental healthcare, It is obvious the nation itself is sick

  • Does that include you. Video games are games, they just want high points. We had more mass shooting in two years, thank toward your speech.

  • Fact#1. The shooters were Democrats and/or socialists by their own admission.
    Fact#2. The shooters shot people and knew what they were doing was wrong.
    Fact#3. The shooters didn't like president Trump.
    Fact#4. President Trump has denounced racism and white nationalism on national television.
    Fact#4. People have been killing other people for centuries without using guns.
    Fact#5. You will never disarm me.
    Fact#6. Marbury vs. Madison confirms that the Constitution is the supreme law of the land, and laws repugnant to it are null/void.
    Fact#7. The second amendment in the Constitution reads that "people can have guns, and government can not infringe on that right." It doesn't eliminate any type of gun.
    Fact#8. Anti gun senators and congressional folks are protected by people with guns.
    Fact#9. When you call 911, you expect someone to show up to protect you with a gun if needed.
    Fact#10. Democrats love these shootings. It is political gain they care about, not the people who die. Some do.

    I could go on and on

  • "A very small percentage of violent acts are committed by people who are diagnosed with or in treatment for mental illness." is incredibly misleading when the topic being discussed is mass murder and not just "violence". While people with mental illness might not make up a majority of people who commit violent acts, there's no denying mental illness and mass murder, specifically, mass shootings, are linked. While I'm not saying to demonize people with mental illness, you can't deny the fact that a MAJORITY of mass shootings have been committed by people who suffer from mental illness (trauma-induced included). In addition, this statement just proves that the US doesn't have enough/accessible health care programs for people with mental illness because a lot of the times it goes undiagnosed and even more so untreated, typically because people just can't afford it. Really disappointed with this news story.

  • Victim: Someone stole my car!
    W.H./Trump: On-line speeding is a problem.
    Victim: I couldn't vote, even when I showed them my registration and I.D.
    W.H./Trump: Edducasion and shpillung is the prablim. Ezspelli on my, Ttump twitter account.

  • 1) video games argument is completely bogus
    2) blaming mental illness is questionable at best, especially without more information
    3) the root cause of this particular guy going postal is moot, the 100% indisputable fact is less coffins and less hospital visits if the guy had a semi automatic instead of an automatic weapon

    Mr President, you and all others protecting the ownership of these vicious and unnecessary weapons are being blantently dishonest with the truth and people are dying because of it – nowhere in the Constitution or the 2nd ammendment does it grant a right to own automatic weapons – it was written in a time of muskets and people certainly have a right to responsibly own such weapons – the 2nd ammendment refers to 'a well regulated militia' – no more and no less

  • The American right wing is delusional, how can such a large majority of a developed country still believe this BS?

  • Oh Oh I know I blamed Donald Trump for causing global mental illness which resulted in global crisis. #BlamedDonaldTrump, "not the gun"

  • He's got the mental illness! He needs to shut his mouth more often whenever he has the urge to talk racist speech! I play video games , that's not the reason!

  • Mental health law? The 25th amendment isn't working, when that happens, I am all for watching an assassination on CNN.

  • This will make poeple with mental illness to not get help because they will loose there rights not everyone that suffers from mental illness is dangerous most aren't i agree if they are dangerous they shouldn't have guns

  • Ok..I hate Trump and it's so obvious he is reading a prepared statement, but I have to agree with one thing. Mental illness does play a role. Even if it does not directly affect the individual, it can be lessons from mentally I'll role models that have an impact. Secondly, if you deem a person who is willing to take a firearm and shoot innocent people to be normal or sain, you yourself need a mental evaluation. That's just not a thought that enters into a healthy brain. A brain can be structurally functioning properly and yet still have chemical imbalances as well as a natural genetic disposition for this sort of behavior. These people need to be identified before these issues happen and furthermore, people need to learn better parenting skills and also hold their selves to higher standards. Education, mental health, financial opportunity, public safety, suppression of bullying, better parenting, better career preparation, personal accountability and other factors will drastically reduce the number of these events. Stop blaming an object in place of the person who is committing the act. If people were to take cars and start running over pedestrians on Sidewalks, do we then advocate for the return of the horse and buggy? Get our corrupt government in order, improve the education and judicial systems, make mental health available and quit trying to put a bandaid on a serious problem. The underlying causes are the issue, not the piece of metal being used. I've never seen a gun load itself and fire into crowds. Join reality and start advocating for real changes. The stupidity of the war on guns only succeeds in angering more individuals and that contributes to these violent acts. Create a better society and crime will drastically fall as a result. Don't believe me? Just look at other countries like those in Scandinavia, Japan, etc. Give us a freaking break.

  • Trump needs to stop talking about himself. He is mentally ill. Doesn't know what he is talking about. He just needs to shut up

  • You can't outlaw mental illness, but you can outlaw weapons of mass destruction. Not hard stuff here.

  • Before reforming mental health laws, President Trump should seek help with his very own state of mental health. He throw's the rock then hides the hand like " i didn't do it ".

  • Trump is preaching hate, he motived the El Paso shooter. He’s directly responsible.

    Don’t forget about the mail bomber, trump created him also

  • so let me see if I've got this right you can get an assault rifle when you have a pre-existing mental health condition but not insurance?

  • Maybe not fanning the flames of white nationalism and xenophobia would help. No, guns are not shooting people. White nationalists are shooting people.

  • It's too little too late and beyond the point. NRA and stretching 2.nd Amendment are the instruments for people "off track" to carry out their heinous threats. It's the gun laws you idiots!!

  • The white suprematism Donald Trump is no different than the white suprematism George Wallace! It’s now official, the Ku Klux Klan is operating its national headquarters DIRECTLY from the Oval Office with the full support of the president.
    I’m going preface my words very carefully, because I am in NO WAY supporting assassination. (Also, I have no desire to be visited by the Secret Service or the FBI). But taking into consideration the current social climate, Donald Trump should exercise EXTREME CAUTION as he continually espouses blatant racial hatred, stoking fear, violence and division among the American people.
    All too often history is known to repeat itself. And in his time, Governor George Wallace was known as "the most dangerous racist in America" and notoriously opposed desegregation and supported the policies of "Jim Crow" during the Civil Rights Movement, declaring in his 1963 inaugural address that he stood for "segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever.” Wallace won election to another term as Governor of Alabama in 1970 and ran in the 1972 Democratic presidential primaries, once again campaigning for segregation. His campaign effectively ended when he was shot in Maryland by Arthur Bremer, and Wallace remained paralyzed below the waist for the rest of his life. Words do indeed have consequenses and this president would be wise to remember what happens when “chickens come home to roost.” https://youtu.be/Yk0yNR7uUag
    Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatsoever a man sows, that he will also reap. – Galatians 6:7

  • So your telling me playing halo back in the 2000 it’s the reason for the shootings it’s that what I’m hearing right now 😕😕😕

  • In a national address, President Trump diagnosed the mass killings that tragically took place in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio. In his message he stated that, “We must reform our mental health laws to better identify mentally disturbed individuals who may commit acts of violence and make sure those people not only get treatment, but when necessary, involuntary confinement. Mental illness and hatred pulls the trigger not the gun.”

    So, can somebody please tell me when is this MENTALLY DISTURBED man, Donald J. Trump, going to get TREATMENT and INVOLUNTARY CONFINEMENT for inciting violence and MASS MURDER? Trump’s “mental illness and hatred PULLED THE TRIGGER” causing two mentally unstable and disaffected white guys to GUN DOWN the innocent lives of 22 people in El Paso, Texas and 9 people in Dayton, Ohio – wounding 53 others! 

    Enough IS ENOUGH – impeach and incarcerate Donald Trump already!

  • You know I am amazed at the BS Trump/ Drumpf says.He is a mental case himself with his his own actions.I think someone else is running this country and just using Trump/Drumpf has the puppet. It is a Shame that Republicans in Charge have put aside patriotism, honesty and the pride of what our our four father's and other people die for our freedoms . Republicans in charge and Trump/Drumpf are only thinking of themselves and how they can take away from all Americans and fill there pockets.Everyony In The White House Should Take A pay Cut and Have To Live Like the Rest Of Us Americans and They Should have to Have The Same Insurance Coverage We all Have.I Bet They Would Think Harder On what Kind Of Bills They Pass.

  • Trump/Drumpf only went to El Paso and Ohio about the shooting because the trip Was Just A Formality! It doesn't affect him at all ! His actions since 2016 until now proves that.

  • Of course us gamers are blamed, the most oppressed minority. This is why we need to RISE UP*. We are gamers, we will not accept this treatment any longer. We do not forgive easily. We will incur our wrath on those who place their foot on our backs. We *WILL have our revenge. Gamers rise up

  • Non-Americans: Trump is racist, supremacist, and bad at politics why do you want him as your President?
    White Americans: No u, stop being big dumb.
    Trump: Video Games are the reasons why these shootings happen.
    White Americans: hoLD uP

  • There trump goes again talking about stuff he has no knowledge of. He moves his mouth like he's trying to keep a denture in.

  • EXACTLY!! INANIMATE OBJECTS DON'T DO ANYTHING UNTIL AN ANIMATE USES THEM!!! WHAT PART OF THIS DOESN'T A IMBECILE UNDERSTAND???

  • I was going to voice my opinion but after reading some of the comments i just realize it is not worth it…the problem with this Country is just too many Liberals and people with no brain. If everyone leave the USA but Liberals in one year the US would be a third world Country.

  • Trump knows more about mental illness than those who trained for 12 years because he has 65 years of personal experience.

  • Of course a gun can't be blamed. Two things pull a trigger – Fear & Hate and both are human emotions and both are peddled by Trump. Nice going Porky.

  • Here we go again. Had the shooters been persons of color or muslim, he wouldn't be saying NOTHING about mental illness.

  • The person behind the gun is the real issue period guns dont fire on there own, evil breeds from mental illness..its one branch..another branch is communism, another is disease

  • This is why we should have better president who isn’t racist, rude, greedy and think himself to save himself to not get impeached also doesn’t want to help others he is the worst president we ever have
