Ben Carson:
“[O]bviously, there are going to be those who are going to be calling for gun control. But you know, that happens every time we have one of these incidents. Obviously, that’s not the issue. The issue is the mentality of these people. And we need to be looking at the mentality of these individuals and seeing if there are any early warning clues that we can gather that will help us as a society to be able to identify these people ahead of time.” — interviewed on Hugh Hewitt radio show, Oct. 1
Hillary Clinton:
“It is just beyond my comprehension that we are seeing these mass murders happen again and again and again. And as I have said, we have got to get the political will to do everything we can to keep people safe. You know, I know there is a way to have sensible gun control measures that help prevent violence, prevent guns from getting into the wrong hands and save lives. And I am committed to doing everything I can to achieve that.” — at forum on substance abuse, Boston area, Oct. 1

John Kasich:

The thoughts and prayers of Ohioans go out to the families & victims of the tragic shooting in Oregon today. -John

My heart is with those who lost so much today in Oregon. -O’M
