President Trump travels to grieving Las Vegas after mass shooting

The iconic Vegas Strip lined with glitzy hotels casinos and neons still had a heavy police presence on Wednesday a stark reminder of Sunday night's tragedy- the worst mass shooting in modern US history

In the wake of every recent mass shooting, she has hoped politicians would heed the calls of millions like her and restrict access to firearms.

The first came when a reporter, referencing the mass shooting in Las Vegas, asked, "Has this particular massacre made the President think anything more about pursuing tighter gun laws, such as background checks, to prevent massacres like this from happening again?" I said, if you're ever in Washington, come on over to the Oval Office. This also means nothing.

Lewis answered, "No. I believe in the Second Amendment, but there are people who say we can not change things, we can not make guns safe for people".

The Las Vegas shooting has reignited debate over the ease of access to firearms in the United States, with Hillary Clinton criticising the National Rifle Association (NRA) for backing legislation that would relax rules over the purchase of silencers. "And people who would not be around today are up there and they'll be leaving the hospital in a week or two weeks or five weeks". "The police department has done such an incredible job", he said.

Fifty-nine people were killed and more than 500 people were wounded when a gunman opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort on concert goers attending the Route 91 Harvest festival on Sunday night.

He also passed his own Trump hotel on his way towards the entertainment strip.

Then-US President Barack Obama was unable to hold back tears as he spoke about the youngest victims of the shootings, and urged Congress to tighten laws.

President Donald Trump stands in silence following the Vegas mass shooting in the US.

Other mass shootings with large death tolls include the Virginia Tech massacre of 2007, in which 32 people were killed and the Sandy Hook gun shooting in CT of 2012, in which 26 people were killed, 20 of them children.

"There's a time and place for a political debate, but now is the time to unite as a country". You know the Republicans tried to stop you from being president.

During Tuesday's trip, he highlighted Puerto Rico's relatively low death toll compared with "a real catastrophe like Katrina", when as many as 1,800 people died in 2005 as levees protecting New Orleans broke.

"Look, we have a tragedy".

The President said: "I just met some of the most fantastic people". Gun sales overall climbed between 2008 and 2016 as consumers bought more guns just in case national gun control regulation was implemented, according to CNN Money.

Experts on mass killings say if someone is truly determined to carry out a mass murder, they will find other ways to do it if automatic weapons are unavailable, such as setting off a homemade bomb.
