United States President Trump has replied to calls for control of guns owing to the terrible mass shooting in modern Texan history by maintaining that “it is not a guns problem”.

Sunday’s mass shooting at the First Baptist Church in the remote town of Sutherland Springs, Texas, killed more than 27 people and at least 20 injured, with a boy, 5 years, and a pregnant woman were part of the casualties.

Devin Patrick Kelley, 26 years, is identified as the killer by United States officials. He was seen dead from a gunshot injury in his vehicle after being chased. It remains not clear if the injury was self-inflicted or was shot by armed resident.

Speaking at a news conference in Japan on Monday morning, Trump tagged the adversity as “an evil act” and gave his “thoughts and prayers” but didn’t propose any amendment to disputable US gun laws.

“This act of evil happened as the casualties and their families were in church. We are saddened,” he said. “Americans do their best: pulling together. We come together and block arms and through the cries and sorrow we stand firm, oh so firm.

“My administration will render its total support to the great state of Texas and all local jurisdiction probing this sorrowful crime.” ‘Mental health is your issue here’ Asked by reporters on the likelihood of current gun legislation, he said: “Initial reports reveal a very insane individual who has been on this condition for a long time.

We have so many mental health issues in our country, so also other countries. “Mental health is your issue here. This is not a guns case. This is a mental health issue at the highest order. It is a very disheartening event.”

 

Texas Governor Greg Abbott said he is “dumbfounded to explain the pure wickedness” witnessed in Sutherland Springs. “Our hearts are saddened at the agony in this little town but in time of mishap, the very best of Texas is seen.

May God give comfort to those who have lost a loved one and may the Almighty heal the wound in our society.” The firing happens just a month after 58 people died and hundreds injured in the terrible mass shooting in United States history when a shooter, Stephen Paddock, allegedly started shooting on a Las Vegas music festival right from his hotel room where he lodged.
