Huckabee: Oregon Shootings the Result of ‘Sin and Evil’

Monday on CNN’s “New Day,” former  Gov. Mike Huckabee (R-AR) discussed last week’s shootings in Oregon and called the episode a result of “sin and evil.”

Huckabee said, “Well, he was able to do it because nobody really reported any of the signs. this guy apparently was a loaner. He exhibited some traits of behavior and attitudes that were warning signals, but nobody acted upon them. He was able to obtain those weapons, some of which came, apparently, from his mother. Some that he obtained. 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. We have a not so much a gun problem, we have a problem with sin and evil. This is an evil thing, when people kill another person. it happens way too often.”
