Gunman's weapons may have been modified

Stephen Paddock's family was in shock after the 64-year-old sowed terror on the Las Vegas strip in the worst mass shooting in recent US history

Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein, a long-time gun control advocate, has already introduced a bill banning the sale and possession of bump stocks. Inaction has been the norm following other mass shootings, including the Sandy Hook, Connecticut, massacre of schoolchildren five years ago, last year's bloodbath at the Pulse nightclub in Florida, and a baseball field shooting this year in which House Majority Whip Steve Scalise came close to death.

House Speaker Paul Ryan told Hugh Hewitt on MSNBC Thursday morning that a bump stock ban is clearly "something we need to look into".

However, those in favour of the bill say that the silencer will prevent hearing damage among hunters.

"As a member of Congress, I would pledge to take on the NRA (National Rifle Association) and vote for common sense legislation aimed at reducing gun violence and making it harder for unsuitable people to purchase guns", the 1st District candidate said. The President and first lady went to Las Vegas to meet and talk with survivors of the shooting, as well as first responders, doctors and nurses during the visit. That was up from 46 percent who felt that way in fall 2015 and the highest share to say so since January 2013, about a month after the Sandy Hook shootings.

The complicated politics of guns was personified by West Virginia Sen. Purchases reached a record past year, but President Donald Trump's surprise victory eased concerns that regulations would be tightened. "We mourn for this tragedy and our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the lost and injured", said Christopher M. Sullivan, the general manager of Guns & Guitars, Inc. Manchin said, adding that any movement on the issue will depend on Trump.

Stop pushing against gun control and think of what you're fighting against.

"Once again, we are mourning the violent loss of innocent lives to a man who had access to weapons no civilian should have access to", he said in a statement.

Democrats pressed for a response.

Rep. Peter Welch also released a statement urging reforms to the nation's gun laws. "It's responsibility. Silence is the political choice".

"I think we are on the urge of breakthrough where when it comes to sensible gun policy", said Curbelo.

A number of other House Republicans joined Flores in supporting the bill, including Reps.

"That law is now being implemented", Ryan said.

The president recounted the heroic actions of law enforcement and those attendees at the Route 91 Harvest Festival who immediately provided assistance to the wounded.
