Baltimore, a lot of the places where you have the biggest problem is where they have the strongest laws.
“I don’t think it’s about laws.
“The strongest, the most stringent laws are in almost every case the worse places. It doesn’t seem to work. It’s a tough situation. nd when it comes to the schools, it really is mental health. It’s a mental problem.”
“But, you know, no matter what you do, guns, no guns, it doesn't matter. You have people that are mentally ill. And they're gonna come through the cracks. And they're going to do things that people will not even believe are possible.

You have copycats. They wanna do it. They think it’s wonderful. They’re sick people," Trump said on NBC’s Meet the Press.
