Well, we have certainly heard THAT before.

Seeking to comfort grieving families and shaken survivors, President Donald Trump spent more than an hour privately Thursday with some of those impacted by a Texas mass school shooting that killed 10 and wounded more than a dozen on May 18.
Rhonda Hart, whose 14-year-old daughter, Kimberly Vaughan, was killed at the school, told The Associated Press that Trump repeatedly used the word ‘wacky’ to describe the shooter and the trench coat he wore. She said she told Trump, “Maybe if everyone had access to mental health care, we wouldn’t be in the situation.”
Hart, an Army veteran, said she also suggested employing veterans as sentinels in schools. She said Trump responded, “And arm them?” She replied, “No,” but said Trump “kept mentioning” arming classroom teachers. “It was like talking to a toddler,” Hart said.
Reporters were not permitted to witness the meeting.
Just what the parent of every murdered child wants to hear, that their child’s murder was “wacky.”
Saving our children from gun violence will never be accomplished by placing armed guards or teachers in our schools, but it certainly might be accomplished if our leaders actually listen to the survivors and parents of those who did not survive.
Something that Trump’s predecessor understands quite well.
This National Gun Violence Awareness Day, show your commitment to keeping our kids safe from gun violence. Then, for everyone we’ve lost, take action to change our leadership and our laws until they reflect that commitment – no matter how long it takes. https://t.co/lraIwlQAgl

All Donald Trump is doing is echoing the NRA’s talking points verbatim.
You know, like a toddler reciting his ABC’s.
