It is clear that the problem lies in the operators of the weapon and not entirely the weapon itself. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee addresses the real “sin and evil” behind the mass shooting in Oregon.

“You know, we have not so much a gun control problem as we do have a problem with sin and evil. I think we always talk about what the weapon was, but whether it’s a pressure cooker or whether it’s a gun, we’re dealing with people who are either deranged or they’re very focused, because they want to kill people in the name of terrorism,” Huckabee told host Alisyn Camerota on CNN’s “New Day” on Monday.

“This is a matter of evil, this is an evil thing, when people kill another person. It happens way too often.”- Huckabee

The evil of which Huckabee refers to is the mass killings that took place in Oregon last week that killed 10 people.

Huckabee put emphasis on the fact that the media invokes fear onto the public, making it seem that they take place more commonly than they actually do.

“Well, the fact is, sending your kids to school today is much safer than sending my kids to school 30 years ago when they went, it’s a safer place. I know it doesn’t sound like it because we have 24-hour cable news that gives us the reports non-stop of the crimes, a gun crime gets most of the attention.”

Huckabee also spoke about the imposing strict gun regulations and how that won’t be enough to prevent future fatalities.

“There are things that happen, some which we can prevent and some we can’t. For example, we could stop most of the car wrecks if we restricted speeds to 25 miles per hour,”- Huckabee
