On gun safety:

Jeb Bush: Growing despair is the "the bigger problem"

"Name a case where gun rights being restricted out of Washington would have changed the course of any of those cases," Bush responded. "The bigger problem right now is we have people that are - have growing despair, are isolated from society, that are disconnected from the rest of us, and spiral out of control and then commit these atrocious acts of violence and in many cases commit suicide."-- interviewed by CBS News' Major Garrett, on "CBS Evening News"

John Kasich: "what I've done in Ohio"

"I'll tell you what I've done in Ohio: I have greatly strengthened the treatment for mentally ill. I created mentoring programs for children in school and getting parents involved in the same way - the same why we're fighting drugs. See i think you're missing what I'm saying...we can talk all day about drugs. But don't you see - these folks who have been the mass shooters, in the theater, out in Denver, what's happened here - this guy, his mother was all alone, didn't know where to go. There were no emergency beds. We've now created emergency beds in Ohio." -- interviewed on ABC's "The View"


Ben Carson: on actions taken by Chris Mintz, who was shot seven times as he ran at the Oregon shooter

"That's exactly what should be done, and if everybody does that, the likelihood of him being able to kill as many people diminishes quite significantly." -- interviewed on "CBS This Morning"
