(THOUGH I HAVE LITTLE TO NO FAITH IN PRESIDENT TRUMP AS A PERSON OR AS A LEADER HE IS STILL SOMETIMES CORRECT ON THE ISSUES FACING ALL OF US IN OUR DAILY LIVES, THIS IS ONE OF THOSE TIMES. SHOOTERS LIKE THIS ALWAYS GO TO TARGETS WHERE THEY KNOW THAT THERE WILL BE NO GUNS AVAILABLE TO SHOOT BACK AT THEM. THINK ABOUT IT, SYNAGOGUES, CHURCHES, SCHOOLS. THESE ARE SHOOTINGS DONE BY PURE COWARDS, THEY ARE CALLED SOFT TARGETS.) (THIS COMMENT IN RED IS BY TRUTHTROUBLES.WORDPRESS.COM ,OLDPOET56) 

Trump says Pittsburgh shooting has ‘little’ to do with gun laws, armed guard could have prevented tragedy

WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump responded to the shooting in Pittsburgh, which left at least eight dead inside a synagogue, telling reporters that an armed guard could have prevented the tragedy.

As Trump boarded Air Force 1 heading to Indianapolis, he told reporters he was monitoring the events unfolding near the Tree of Life Synagogue and said “something has to be done.”

But, Trump rebuffed questions about whether now was the time to examine gun laws.

“This has little to do with it if you take a look,” Trump said on gun laws. He continued, explaining armed guard could have prevented the tragedy.

“If they had protection inside the results would have been far better,” the president said. “Maybe it could have been a very much different situation.”

Police have a man in custody after the attack, which left at least eight dead and multiple people injured, including four police officers. Multiple media, including CNN, CBS and KDKA, identified the shooter as Robert Bowers.

Teams of armed police swarmed the Squirrel Hill neighborhood near downtown Pittsburgh just before 10 a.m. Saturday. Residents were urged to shelter in place as armed law enforcement agents canvassed the neighborhood.

Pittsburgh television station KDKA-TV and NBC reported that eight people have been killed and a number of others injured at Tree of Life synagogue. A male suspect has surrendered to police and three police officers were also reportedly shot, according to KDKA-TV.

Trump said he was monitoring the shooting and said the U.S. needed to “stiffen up” its death penalty laws.

“They should pay the ultimate price,” Trump said. “It’s a terrible, terrible thing what’s going on with hate in our country, frankly, and all over the world. And something has to be done.”

  1. I just realized that comment could be misconstrued. I meant it is evil for a president to deny that lax gun laws beget gun violence. It evil to not care. It is evil to say the solution is to have armed guards in every church, store, school, hospital, restaurant and public place in America.

Car le poète est un four à brûler le réel. De toutes les émotions brutes qu’il reçoit, il sort parfois un léger diamant d’une eau et d’un éclat incomparables. Voilà toute une vie comprimée dans quelques images et quelques phrases. Pierre Reverdy
