The Las Vegas Lesson About Guns

President Donald Trump led the nation in mourning in somber remarks as the death toll rose to at least 58 victims and 515 injuries. Thanks once again to first responders - who rush toward danger, when everyone flees.

"This is an important time to mourn the loss of our loved ones. We can not fathom their pain or imagine their loss".

"We can not even rule out mental illness or some form of brain damage, although there's no evidence of that, either", an official told Reuters.

"The more we can exert pressure on people who are there who are unwilling to have these very important issues brought up to a vote before the full House, we'll see what the climate is after November". People started screaming that they were hit... This is like he shot us'.

The U.S. long ago passed the point where reasonable gun control legislation was needed.

Rep. Judy Chu, D-Calif., said on Twitter: "It's not "political" to urge action to stop the regular killing of Americans by guns. Do not wait. The nation is counting on you".

Such guns are legal in the U.S., so long as they were made before May 1986 and are registered with the federal government.

When asked whether the president will consider talks on tightening laws yesterday, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders did extremely well to give no answer at all.

"Today is a day for consoling survivors", she said.

House GOP leaders had been moving forward with bills to ease regulations on gun silencers and allow people with concealed-carry permits to take their weapons to other states.

A White House official repeated the same line to Politico on Tuesday: "With this investigation still in its early phases, we should avoid making sweeping policy decisions", the source said.
