SEOUL, South Korea – President of the United States, Donald J . Trump has said that antigun legislation would not solve the problem of gun violence in the United States.
The President who was speaking at a press conference in South Korea on the heel of recent multiple gun shots at First Baptist Church in in Sutherland Springs, Texas United States in which 26 people were killed and dozens others injured said a outright ban would have prevented Jonnie Lagendoff who confronted the lone shooter, adding that the carnage would have been more.
“It is not going to help”, he said adding that Chicago remains the city with the strongest gun law, but that Chicago remains a disaster.
Among the 26 people that died in Sunday shooting at the church was a family of eight. The pastor of the church also lost his daughter.
One of the survivors described the terror she felt when suspect Devin Kelley unloaded a hail of gunfire on the churchgoers.
Rosanne Solis told ABC News that she was certain she was going to die when the gunman began firing. “I’m gonna die, I knew I was gonna die, I knew ’cause the shots were going to close to my head,” she said. “… I didn’t want to die.”
Solis said that at first, everybody started screaming when the suspect began shooting, but then it grew silent as he made his way through the church, stopping to reload several times.
“He was shooting the people on the floor, they were on the ground already bleeding,” she said. “… They were scared. Nobody was about to say a word. … I would not even move, I would not even make a sound.”
“You could hear a pin drop in there, silence. Real quiet. … I knew if I said something he was gonna kill me, he was looking for people to shoot more people to shoot.”
