Donald Trump on When He Carries a Gun: ‘I Like to Be Unpredictable’

“That’s target practice for the sickos, and for the mentally ill,” Trump said of gun-free zones, at Wednesday’s GOP debate

Donald Trump waded into the national conversation about gun control at Wednesday evening’s CNBC Republican debate.

“Mr. Trump, you said you have a special permit to carry a gun in New York,” the debate moderator started. “After the Oregon mass shooting on October 1st, you said, ‘By the way, it was a gun-free zone. If you had a couple of teachers with guns, you would’ve been a hell of a lot better off.’ Would you feel more comfortable if your employees brought guns to work?”

“Yes, I might feel more comfortable. I would say that I would,” Trump said, going on to discuss his New York gun permit. “I do carry on occasion. Sometimes a lot. I like to be unpredictable.”

“By the way, unlike our country, where we’re totally predictable, and the enemy — whether it’s ISIS or anybody else, they know exactly what we’re doing, because we have the wrong leadership.”

Going back to gun-free zones, Trump added, “That’s target practice for the sickos, and for the mentally ill. They look around for gun-free zones.”
