A school shooting in Perry, Iowa, has once again brought attention to the issue of gun violence in the United States.

The incident occurred as Republican candidates campaigned in the state, but their responses focused on mental health and school security rather than gun safety measures.

The leading candidate, Donald Trump, did not immediately address the shooting. (Trending: Sports Icon Dies Suddenly At 56)

“We have to deal with the cancer that is mental health,” Nikki Haley said.

“We obviously, you know, have a responsibility to create safe environments,” DeSantis said.

But “it is more of a local and state issue,” he added, noting that he does not “support infringing the rights of law-abiding citizens with respect to the ability to exercise their constitutional rights.”

“That’s an underlying sickness in society,” he said.

The White House renewed calls for congressional action to address gun violence.

Critics argue that the country needs common sense gun reform, not just prayers, to prevent such tragedies.

“Our hearts break for the families of the victims in yet another act of senseless gun violence,” White House Spokesperson Karine Jean-Pierre said. “We cannot allow these tragedies to continue.”
