Las Vegas shooter had devices to allow fully automatic gunfire

Stephen Paddock the man who let loose a barrage of bullets on the Las Vegas Strip in the worst mass shooting in modern

Florida Republican Rep. Carlos Curbelo told ABC News that he hoped to introduce bipartisan legislation to ban bump stocks as soon as Thursday.

Somehow, Obama did not address the "bump stock" issue - not in the 23 executive actions he took in 2013, and not in the follow-up executive actions he took in 2016.

The NRA also signaled its support and said the devices should be subjected to additional regulations.

"We're certainly open to that moving forward", Sanders said. "Ladies and gentlemen, when is the time going to be there", Feinstein continued. They blocked background check legislation after the shooting deaths of elementary school children in CT in 2012, and took no action despite intense pressure from Democrats, including a House floor sit-in, after last year's bloodbath at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida.

In a likely effort to avoid controversy, Wal-Mart Stores and the sporting goods store Cabela's both appeared to pull bump stocks from their websites on Wednesday. He said that he sold his last five bump stocks on Tuesday and hasn't been able to restock. We still do not know the motivation of the Vegas shooter, but that has not stopped the left from proposing policy solutions that we already know would not have prevented the shooting. "And, at the end of that, that would be an appropriate time to discuss us", McConnell said.

Congressional Republicans are urging The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms to re-evaluate bump stocks.

Putting any sort of legislative proposal before Congress - even one with a very limited initial scope like further regulating bump stocks - poses a major risk for the NRA and other major players in the gun lobby.

Restrictions on private ownership of automatic weapons date back to the Prohibition era, according to the Brady Campaign. "So I have no problem banning those". Curbelo told the Washington Post that he'd received a lot of support for the bill from fellow Republicans.

Although America's unique relationship to guns sits at the forefront of the national psyche, gun culture in the U.S.is often seen as an outlier globally.

So, would such a proposal stand a chance of passing in the state legislature?

"I was horrified by the tragedy in Las Vegas, and my heart goes out to the victims, their families and the entire community". The law meant nothing to the shooter.

Johnson's openness to banning such devices was shared by at least two House Republicans.

It is my fervent hope that the investigation into the unspeakable atrocity in Las Vegas will provide us with insight into how to identify and stop evil perpetrators like this from committing similar horrific crimes in the future. "There's a reason for that, and I'd want to make sure that nobody has access to that, if that's the law of the land". "I just thank God". In the meantime, Nevada remains one of the easiest states in the nation in which to buy guns, despite a number of recent gun-control advocates' victories.

And it is entirely appropriate that the debate be informed by the uncomfortable truths of what happens in a country where political leaders are subservient to gun nuts. It warned us that someone with a gun was coming, giving some of us a few precious moments to act and call 911.

But the concert was violently interrupted when a gunman carried out the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history.

The next shooting to take the title of "deadliest in modern USA history" will have to claim the lives of 60 or more people.

Most gun sales are by federally licensed vendors who must put buyers through background checks.
