Donald Trump says the Lafayette shooting “had nothing to do with guns.”

During an interview with CNN host Jake Tapper on Sunday, Trump argued that it was wrong to focus on gun safety laws after John Russell Houser allegedly shot 11 people on Friday.

“These are sick people,” he explained. “This has nothing to do with guns, this has to do with the mentality of these people.”

Trump, who called himself a “big Second Amendment person,” said that people needed “protection against the bad ones who have the guns.”

“You take them away from the good people, and the bad ones are going to have target practice,” the billionaire remarked. “Like for instance, the gun free zone with the Marines [in Chattanooga], that was disgraceful… This guy shot them, they were like sitting ducks… and if they would have had their guns, they probably would all be alive or most of them.”
