America's mass shootings are getting deadlier

"In the wake of this tragedy, I hope we'll all be able to take the time to look for the helpers and that each of us, in our own way, will seek to help our nation heal, move forward, and work to prevent similar tragedies", Raja Krishnamoorthi, Democrat Congressman from 8th district IL, said.

But the sounds of gunfire from videos of the attacks offer a clue.

The California Democrat revealed that chilling detail as she introduced legislation to ban "bump stocks" like those used by the Las Vegas shooter that can effectively convert legal semi-automatic rifles into fully automatic weapons.

The fully automatic can fire 600-800 rounds per minute says Yukthman.

CHUCK SCHUMER: When two mass shootings force you to delay a bill that would make those mass shootings harder to detect and stop, maybe it's a sign you ought to let go of the bill once and for all. She said experts who analyzed it said you can hear 90 gunshots in just 10 seconds.

With the United States in shock and grief following its deadliest mass shooting, the focus will inevitably turn to the gun laws that allow someone with murder in mind to buy automatic weapons capable of turning a country music festival into a scene reminiscent of a battlefield. New measures include the background checks of nearly all sales and redefining what is considered an assault weapon.

Sales of automatic weapons are banned in the US.

"There are a number of ways to do it", he said.

While they allow for rapid firing, they can lessen accuracy, experts told the AP. We're in the business of selling firearms legally and took all precautions on this sale, as we do with all sales. Member of Congress, as I said earlier today, we're called to lead, to be a headlight and not a taillight.

"The so-called leaders with the power to schedule that vote are too busy lining their pockets with cash from the gun lobby to notice the blood on their hands".

"Nowadays, the guy who kills tomorrow wants to beat the body count", Philbrick said.

Authorities confirmed that some of the weapons found in the Las Vegas hotel room contained scopes. "Those families need to be uplifted", Mr. Scalise said about the Las Vegas victims.
