ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump spoke to reporters following an event in Greenville, South Carolina, where he described the shooting and killing of two TV journalists in Virginia the day before as "so sad." "Well you're, gonna have to do something because you can't allow this to happen, and what happened in Virginia is absolutely terrible," Trump said. "At the same time, it's not about the guns, it's about mental instability. You have people with great mental instability. And it's a shame, because if you look at this man that did this horrible act.. people knew that he was mentally unstable for years, and it's a shame that he couldn't have been in a hospital," Trump added. WDBJ7 reporter Alison Parker, 24, and cameraman Adam Ward, 27, were shot and killed on live television during a reporting assignment for the Roanoke CBS affiliate station on Wednesday morning.
