Speaking about the plague of mass shootings in the United States, Mike Huckabee ventured a theory that the problem isn’t guns, it’s sin.

While appearing on CNN, Huckabee made his comment to host Alisyn Camerota while discussing the Umpqua Community College shooter.

“He exhibited some traits and attitudes that were warning signals but nobody acted on them,” said Huckabee. “And he was able to obtain those weapons, some of which came apparently from his mother, some that he obtained.”

“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,” said Huckabee. “We have not so much a gun problem, we have a problem with sin and evil.”

“This is a matter of evil…” said Huckabee.
