Trump Visiting Las Vegas To Meet With Shooting Survivors, Law Enforcement

Posted October 04, 2017

Through smashed windows in his 32nd-floor hotel room, Paddock opened fire Sunday night on the Route 91 Harvest festival in Las Vegas, which drew a crowd of more than 22,000 people.

The bill, which had already passed the House Natural Resources Committee on a party-line vote last month, came under renewed scrutiny following the massacre in Las Vegas.

Gun advocates say guns are not the problem, but that people with bad intentions are the issue, and that government should think more about what is driving people to commit these mass killings in the first place. "Which can be added to an AR-15, which essentially makes it mimic automatic weapons and it's legal", Sen.

Experts said it sounded as if the shooter fired hundreds of times in mere seconds, something that would be extremely hard to do with a semi-automatic weapon, unless the rifle used was modified.

After the awful news of the Las Vegas shooting and reports with details of the deaths and injuries, we were subjected to experts telling us how to protect ourselves from such incidents, to be aware, to report suspicious people, etc. He said in public that his visit would be "a very, very sad moment for me ... for everybody no matter where you are, no matter what your thought process". "There are some parts that are legal for sale, the ATF has determined does not make it a machine gun, but does increase the rate of fire", said Steve Ou, sales manager at Guns Warehouse. Ryan said the actions of the gunman who killed at least 59 people and wounded hundreds more will not "define us as a country".

After Donald Trump's remarks about the Las Vegas shooting being a "miracle", social media went viral in opposition.

Many are now asking about the legality of bump stocks and who can buy them.

Yet the purchasing of fully automatic weapons has been significantly restricted in the USA since the 1930s.

The American people are exhausted of being outraged, sending thoughts and prayers, seeing men, women and children die because the gun lobby does put profit over people, Jayapal said during her speech on the floor of the US House of Representatives on Monday.

YouTube videos from bump stock manufacturers show the firing power of guns equipped with the stocks.

The White House has not raised concerns over gun laws since the Las Vegas shooting, which authorities say is the nation's deadliest, despite Trump's interest in stricter gun measures before becoming president.

Investigators are still working to determine how many of them were actually used.

"Ultimately, when Congress. looks at this, they'll start asking questions about why anybody needs this, and I think the answer is we have a Bill of Rights and not a Bill of Needs", Pratt told the AP.
