Transcript for Trump says extreme vetting for Texas shooter would have made 'no difference'
You talked about wanting to put extreme betting on people trying to come in the United States but I wonder if you'd consider extreme vetting for people trying to buy gotten. Trying to let buy a gun. Well you know you bring it up a situation that probably shouldn't be discussed too much right now we could let a little time go by but it's okay if you feel that that's an appropriate question even though ordered the part of South Korea. I will certainly answer your question. If you did what you're suggesting. There would have been no difference three days ago. And you might not have had that very brave. Person who happened to have a Gunner a rifle in his truck. Go out and shoot him and hit him. And neutralize him. And I can only say that is if he didn't have a gun. Instead of having 26 dead. You would have had hundreds more dead. So that's the way I feel about it and are you not gonna help and I consider any kind of gun control policy and you look at least he's. City with the strongest gun laws in our nation is Chicago. And Chicago's a disaster. It's a total disaster just remember in this man didn't have a gun or rifle. You'd be talking about a much worse situation. In the great state of Texas thank you.
