President Donald Trump says his administration is committed to working with Congress to ``stop the menace of mass attacks'' as he bemoans the ``monstrous'' and ``wicked'' rampage by a gunman in West Texas.

He says the goal is to ``substantially reduce the violent crime ... in any form, any of its evil forms.''

Trump mentions ``strong measures to keep weapons out of the hands of dangerous and deranged individuals'' and changes to the mental health system. He says ``public safety is our No. 1 priority'' but also says he wants to ``protect our Second Amendment.''

He spoke during a visit to the headquarters of the Federal Emergency Management Agency for an update on Hurricane Dorian.

The death toll in Saturday's rampage stands at seven. Authorities haven't released a possible motive.
