"Hey, this guy looks tough to me", President Trump says the Gunderson, shaking his hand. He helped build the luxury Trump International Hotel, where he stays when he visits, and was a frequent visitor during the presidential campaign past year.

Hoping to build on that bipartisan cooperation, a group of nearly 100 House Democrats sent a letter to Trump Wednesday urging the president to join their effort to combat the gun-violence plague that was highlighted so tragically Sunday in Las Vegas. Americans love to play with guns.

"First thing you have to do is make sure the victims are treated".

The said mass shooting surpassed the 2016 Orlando nightclub shooting as the deadliest mass shooting by a lone gunman in United States history. Police reports informed that they had recovered 47 weapons from three different sites so far.

While thanking the staff at a hospital in Las Vegas on Wednesday, President Trump brushed off a reporter's question about whether America has a gun violence problem.

Generous with superlatives, Trump also commended the doctors for doing an "indescribable" job.

"That is just a huge loophole that allows you to convert a weapon into something that is like an automatic gun", Rep. Dina Titus, a Nevada Democrat, told CNN.

Trump said that investigators were "learning a lot more" about Paddock, but that details would be "announced at an appropriate time". At the last stop, however, he spoke slowly and somberly of the lives ended or forever altered.

The couple had spent the day at a trauma centre in the shocked city, where the president praised the bravery of the people who ran into the hail of bullets fired by gunman Stephen Paddock to rescue strangers. He also passed his own Trump hotel on his way toward the entertainment strip.

"We're not going to talk about that today", he said.

But the powerful National Rifle Association, which has been instrumental in blocking past gun control legislation, finally made its views known on "bump stocks" or on Feinstein's bill, backing an immediate review to see if the devices comply with federal law.

"Typically after mass shootings, gun sales go up", said Avery Gardiner, co-president of the Brady Campaign, a group that seeks to reduce gun deaths.

"We are making progress but I don't have complete answers yet", he said.

But in the weeks after he spoke, federal agents in West Virginia began taking turns firing a rifle with a stock-like contraption clamped to the back, the predecessor to a device that authorities say was used this week in Las Vegas, in the deadliest mass shooting in USA history.
