Las Vegas shooting: Congress reacts to massacre

Las Vegas shooting: Congress reacts to massacre

CT was the epicenter of the gun control debate after the Sandy Hook massacre, which left 20 children and six adults dead.

The FBI says the shooter who killed 58 people and injured more than 500 others at a Las Vegas concert had no connection to an worldwide terrorist group.

Trump, who said he plans to visit Las Vegas, praised first-responders in Las Vegas for saving lives and invoked biblical scripture. The reality is that - with America in the fifth and final "acceptance" stage of a mass-shooting regime that occurs in no other nation in the civilized world - I don't have a much better idea what to say than Dana Loesch or Donald Trump.

"This must stop. It is positively infuriating that my colleagues in Congress are so afraid of the gun industry that they pretend there aren't public policy responses to this epidemic", Murphy said.

But thoughts and prayers "are NOT enough", Warren continued. "It's time for Congress to get off its ass and do something".

Following the shooting, some top Democrats - often proponents of tighter restrictions on guns - urged the Republican-controlled Congress to take unspecified action to limit killings in the future.

PH production PMI still subdued in September: IHS Markit
Malaysian manufacturers continued to raise their staffing levels despite the ongoing decline in new work. Longer lead times stemmed from a lack of raw materials among vendors, according to anecdotal evidence.

A map created by ABC15 in Arizona shows the location of all 273 mass shooting incidents throughout the US this year.

Christopher said that a surge in January 2013 "was particularly large" and was probably the result of the calls for regulation that followed the atrocity.

Attempts to renew the assault weapon law that was passed in 1994 and expired in 2004 have failed, despite the Sandy Hook, San Bernardino and Pulse nightclub mass shootings.

Gun Violence Archive reveals that more than 11,500 people have been killed by gun violence this year. He added: "I am more than frustrated, I am furious". "It is our love that defines us today", he said, noting also that "answers do not come easy" and that we should pray "for the day evil is banished".

The grounds are shown at the Route 91 Harvest festival, with the Mandalay Bay Hotel behind the stage, on Las Vegas Boulevard South in Las Vegas, Nevada, US.

As news continued through the morning and the estimated death toll swelled to more than 50 people, with another 200 injured, more including law enforcement weighed in on the tragedy.
