It's hard to imagine the inconsolable grief being experienced by the families of the victims.

During his visit to Vegas on Wednesday, President Donald Trump dodged questions about the issue of gun violence in his country.

He appears to have been able to fire so many rounds at such a rapid pace by attaching a bump stock to a semi-automatic weapon.

The gun shop, which also sells musical instruments, is located only a five-minute drive from where Paddock lived in Mesquite.

Gunderson was one of the more than 500 victims who were injured in Sunday night's shooting when Paddock opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel.

Chuck Grassley of Iowa, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, about holding a hearing on bump stocks and "any other aspect of this bad crime that we need to look at from a federal perspective" once the initial investigation is complete. However, he fell short on that last point and turned back to the gun laws, outlining the changes he would propose before taking aim at Trump again. The stock only helps the shooter press the trigger much faster.

Lombardo said what is clear is that the attack late Sunday on the Las Vegas Strip was premeditated.

"You showed the world and the world is watching", he told them.

Trump added, "It's a very, very sad day for me, personally".

State police said if someone unlawfully possesses or converts a semiautomatic into an automatic weapon that it would violate CT law.

The NRA announcement followed comments from leading congressional Republicans including House Speaker Paul Ryan that Congress should take a look at the devices, which were little-known even to gun enthusiasts prior to Sunday's bloodbath.

She says that grid lock could cause lawmakers to shy away from proposing new laws.

"The fact that he had the type of weaponry and the amount of weaponry in that room, it was pre-planned extensively and I'm pretty sure he evaluated everything he did in his actions, which is troublesome", the sheriff said.

Steven McCarthy, the uncle of one of the victims says, "I can not think of any better word to describe her than saying she was dearly a precious angel that had been gifted to us".

"Obviously we need to plug this loophole".

The killer in Las Vegas apparently used the legal bump stock devices on legal rifles, essentially converting them into automatic weapons, which are banned.
