The President of the United States Donald trump pointed out the inopportuneness of the political debate about gun control. He stated this during a trip to Puerto Rico, Reuters reports.
“Maybe it will happen, but not now,” he said. This issue has regained sharp edges after the tragedy in Las Vegas, where 64-year-old Steven Paddock opened fire with a legally purchased automatic weapon on visitors of the music festival. The victims were 59 people, injured about 500. The President called the shooter “a sick and crazy man.”
Trump during his election campaign promised to his supporters to defend the second amendment of the Constitution guaranteeing the right of citizens to keep and bear arms, which in the United States, according to various estimates speak of 60 to 80 million people.
Trump visited the victim of two hurricanes in Puerto Rico. At the meeting with local residents, he handed out the food and threw it into the crowd rolls of paper towels, and jokingly stated that “Puerto Ricans kind of ruined our budget.”
