Trump uses "NRA talking points" after Texas and Ohio massacres

Kris Brown, president of gun control advocacy organization Brady, reacts to President Trump's comments in the aftermath of two deadly mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio.

"I was very disappointed that he seemed to use the NRA talking points," she said, referring to widespread pathologizing of people with mental illness and vilification of the video game industry.

"It's no surprise," she adds as the NRA contributed heavily to his election.
