Donald Trump: Don’t Blame Gun Laws for Oregon School Shooting

Trump made the remarks on ABC News' "This Week."

"Well the gun laws have nothing to do with this. This isn't guns this is about really mental illness. And I feel very strongly about it. And again politically correct, 'Oh we're gonna solve the problem, there'll be no problem, etc., etc,'" Trump told ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos, when asked about the possibility of new gun laws.

"You're always going to have difficulties, no matter how tight you run it. Even if you had great education having to deal with mental illness. You educate the community – you're going to have people that slip through the cracks," he said.

More of the interview with Trump will air Sunday on "This Week."
