The script now is set - and depressingly familiar. Las Vegas will be no different if we allow our elected officials to go through their ritualized pageant of sending up "thoughts and prayers", while doing exactly nothing. There's a time and place for a political debate, but now is time to unite as a country.

Congress in February passed a bill rolling back an Obama-era regulation that would have added Social Security beneficiaries with mental illnesses assigned a financial manager to the national background check database as ineligible for gun ownership.

At least 59 people were killed and over 527 were injured when a gunman opened fire on a crowd of concert goers across the street from the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino on the Las Vegas Strip. But even without them, the rampage was frightful. He, too, said Congress is now working to "legalize the sale of silencers".

After offering her own condolences, Hillary Clinton led others in calling for political action in response.

"Our grief isn't enough".

He dodged questions about reigniting the gun control debate, but praised Las Vegas police, saying they had done an "incredible job".

President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump walk from the White House in Washington, Monday, Oct. 2, 2017, to the South Lawn for a moment of silence to remember the victims of the mass shooting in Las Vegas.

"Be part of the solution", Rep Esty implored. Unlike the shooter in Orlando, the Vegas gunman did not have ties to radicals. "I don't know when it's going to be scheduled", Ryan told reporters. "I saw one with about 20 people in the back". On December 17, 2012, just three days after the Sandy Hook massacre, CBS published a poll blaring that support for stricter gun control had reached a 10-year high.

"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", he said.

"Until this important legislation is signed into law the NRA will continue to debunk the gun control lobby's misinformation campaign and educate members of Congress on the facts", a spokeswoman said.

Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., a gun control proponent, said it was "time for Congress to get off its ass and do something". A vote on that measure also seemed unlikely.

Last year's deadliest attack was the worst mass shooting in US history until Sunday night.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-San Francisco, called for the creation of a select committee on gun violence to work on "common sense legislation to help end this crisis". That poll also found that 57 percent felt the United States would be less safe if more people carried guns and 35 percent thought the country would be safer.

In addition to being the 273rd mass shooting this year, the Las Vegas attack was the 18th mass murder - incidents in which at least four people, other than the shooter, were killed - cataloged by the Gun Violence Archive this year.

"Mars just fell into the earth", he said.

As the Senate's chief gun control advocate, Politico reported he was still hashing out details of the new background checks legislation and wouldn't introduce it imminently.

Nolan called for strengthening background checks and placing mental health restrictions on buying firearms. But finding the final language is always impossible for lawmakers. When an ISIS affiliate sought to claim credit, the Federal Bureau of Investigation disputed any global involvement in a statement.

"When an Islamic terrorist blows up a school with kids in it, we are told not to judge all Muslims by the acts of a few", he said.

Medical staff tend to people in the immediate aftermath of the shooting.
