Trump says synagogue should have had protection, calls for tougher death penalty laws


Donald Trump told reporters on Saturday that the shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue had little to do with gun laws and that had there been protection inside the temple “the results would have been different”.
The shooting showed that the US should stiffen laws on the death penalty, Trump said before getting on Air Force One. “I think one thing we should do is we would stiffen up our laws with guns with the death penalty,” Trump said. “When people do this they should get the death penalty.”
At least four people were killed and 12 shot and three officers injured responding to an active shooting incident at a Pittsburgh synagogue on Saturday, local media and CNN reported.
