The NRA is the country's most active and successful terrorist organization

The President and first lady have announced that they will lead a moment of silence for the Las Vegas victims

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has called on Congress to reject legislation that would make it easier to purchase a firearm silencer in the wake of the deadliest mass shooting in modern us history.

As the NRA's revenues have soared and its donations to Congress have ramped up, mass shootings have become increasingly deadly.

"Nowhere but America do horrific large-scale mass shootings happen with this degree of regularity", Democratic Senator Chris Murphy said in a statement. "The following day, your senior U.S. Senator and Senate Majority leader Harry Reid stated flatly that he 'would oppose an effort [to] reinstate the ban if the Senate were to vote on it in the future.' Such a forthright statement helped prevent the anti-gun media and groups from building any momentum on this important issue".

If every one of those people at the Las Vegas concert had been armed, would it have made any difference? The NRA has given roughly $3.8 million to congressional campaigns since 1998, a number that pales in comparison to the type of money moved around by left-wing donors.

Former presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton also tweeted their support for the victims.

"It will be interesting to see how the NRA responds to this", she tells Newsweek.

Last month, Apple announced its iPhone 8 and 8 Plus flagship devices alongside the 10-year anniversary iPhone X . This is the upgraded version of the 2016 Belkin "Rockstar" adapter, which came with two Lightning ports.

Nevada, like many states, has extremely lax gun laws.

President Donald Trump offered his sympathy for the victims of the attack, calling it an "act of pure evil" in an address to the nation. "They're doing right now what they do after every mass shooting, which is to go dark". A spokesman did not return HuffPost's request for comment.

The first test of the response to the Las Vegas shooting could come imminently.

The House is now considering The Hearing Protection Act, a provision of a legislative package dubbed the Sportsmen's Heritage and Recreational Enhancement Act.

"My warmest condolences and sympathies to the victims and families of the bad Las Vegas shooting", Trump wrote on Twitter.

There is already evidence that the gun lobby and gun manufacturers will benefit from the lack of pressure for stricter gun control laws at the top layers of government.
