Arsenal of weapons, ammo found at Las Vegas gunman's hotel room

Wednesday, 04 Oct, 2017

President Trump on Tuesday alluded to impending talks about gun control laws following the Las Vegas massacre, though he added no clarity about whether the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history had moved his stance on the issue. For the time being, however, Nelson believes there will be significantly less momentum behind any pro gun rights legislation.

One of those folks is Representative Steve Scalise, who was also almost killed in a shooting.

He defended legislation passed by Congress earlier this year to roll back an Obama-era requirement for gun background checks for those who have a mental health conditions for which they receive Social Security disability benefits.

"They should be praying", Kimmel said of lawmakers. "When that time comes for those conversations to take place, then I think we need to look at things that may actually have that real impact". "It's not good enough to send our thoughts and prayers".

The AP reports that, following the mass shooting in Las Vegas, Republicans will table two aggressive, NRA-backed bills that would allow people to legally carry concealed weapons in states that have tight restrictions, overriding local laws for concealed weapons, and would loosen restrictions on gun silencers.

RYAN: Yeah, there were people who were - whose rights were being infringed.

The worst mass shooting in USA history prompted investors to buy shares in American Outdoor Brands, owner of Smith & Wesson firearms and Gemtech silencers, as well as Sturm, Ruger & co.

On an average, more than 90 Americans lose their lives to gun violence every day, a daily toll of heartbreak and tragedy in communities across the US. "Though you can't regulate away evil in total, you can do more to protect people". And now Congress is considering making it easier to buy silencers for guns.

He plans to meet with Federal Emergency Management Agency and military officials, first responders and citizens of Puerto Rico and their families, Trump said. Democrats want the president to do much more.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives announced that it was "currently conducting an urgent trace on firearms recovered from the scene in Las Vegas". "What Congress can do - what Congress must do - is pass laws that keep our citizens safe", Senator Chuck Schumer, Democrat of NY, said on the Senate floor on Monday, October 2.
