Gun Control Debate Intensifies After Las Vegas Shooting


Trump plans to visit Las Vegas Wednesday to meet with the victims' families, as well as first responders.

"It made me physically ill to think that we had interacted with him and he had committed such a tragedy", said Christopher Sullivan, general manager of Guns & Guitars in Mesquite, Nevada, a shop near Paddock's home.

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

The suspect shooter, Stephen Paddock, a 64-year-old gambler and real estate investor, purchased 33 firearms in the last year.

The medical center treated 100 patients Sunday night and admitted 50.

"We owe it to the victims of this mass shooting - and all the ones before", Nolan said, "to find solutions that both parties can agree on". "Every hospital took serious patients". "There is a false freakish kind of courage that comes with attaching yourself to these kinds of very powerful weapons, and there is a question as to whether these shooters would ever take up position if all they had was a pistol".

The White House statement says Trump "welcomed" Pena Nieto's "expression of thanks" for USA help after Mexico's recent natural disaster. Several officers had tears in their eyes as the president spoke.

She pleaded, "Mr. and Mrs. America, you have to stand up, you have to say enough is enough". "Words can not describe the bravery that the whole world witnessed on Sunday night".

Bump stocks were used by the shooter in Las Vegas.

The president has received periodic briefings on the shooting while also monitoring the coverage on cable news. But even some of them aren't 100% sure, Axios says.

The local authorities in Las Vegas have said that the mass shooting of around 600 people, which killed 59, was premeditated and pre-planned.

"I said, 'If you're ever in Washington, come on over to the Oval Office.' And they're all saying, 'We want to do it".

Some of patients the president and first lady Melania Trump met with "were very, very badly wounded", Trump said, "and they were badly wounded because they refused to leave". The state of Vermont has some of the most relaxed gun laws in the country, but there have been efforts in Montpelier to change that and the debate is very much alive.

"The fact of the matter is, common sense gun violence prevention legislation can and will save lives all across the country", the group wrote in the statment.
