Calls for gun control following mass shooting in Las Vegas

Senator Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., says when he saw images from the scene early Monday morning he was heartbroken...and then furious.

"In the wake of this tragedy, I hope we'll all be able to take the time to look for the helpers and that each of us, in our own way, will seek to help our nation heal, move forward, and work to prevent similar tragedies", Raja Krishnamoorthi, Democrat Congressman from 8th district IL, said.

Democratic Rep. John Lewis of Georgia said prayers were not enough, asking "how many more dead bodies will it take to wake up this Congress?". Blumenthal called the absence of action "complicity".

They are still searching for a motive, but what they did find was a huge arsenal of weapons at his home and hotel room; over 40 guns, ammunition and explosives.

The Congress, she said, must pass the bipartisan King- Thompson legislation to strengthen the life-saving background checks that keep guns out of the wrong hands. The American people deserve a vote on legislation that will curb gun violence, including reinstating an assault weapons ban and instituting new restrictions on gun trafficking, Carson said.

Its volunteers have teamed with Gurdwaras, where shelter, hot meals (langar) and other assistance is being offered to all who may need it. Sikh taxi drivers are volunteering to drive people to their destinations safely, it said.

In New York, Governor Andrew Cuomo has ordered all flags to be flown at half-staff until Friday in honor of the victims.

The email directed supporters to an online form, where they could choose to split their donations between three gun control groups - Americans for Responsible Solutions PAC, Everytown for Gun Safety and the Brady campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.

Shares in gun manufacturers rallied Monday after the nation witnessed its deadliest mass shooting in modern history.

Congress is now working on legislation to make it easier for citizens to buy noise suppressors for their guns.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein says her own daughter had planned to attend the Route 91 musical festival in Las Vegas where concertgoers were slaughtered this week - but her plans changed and she didn't go.

"The shooter was just another good guy with a gun".

In light of the tragedy in Las Vegas, and the ongoing tragedy of gun violence in America, this could not be more inappropriate.

In a separate statement issued on Wednesday, Corey accused Murphy of "politicizing" the shooting by calling for stricter gun control laws and said the Connecticut Democrat has "blood on his hands, due to his constantly divisive rhetoric in Washington".

NY has some of the toughest gun control laws in the nation, but McQuillen says guns illegal in NY can still come in from neighboring states.

The state of Nevada has some of the loosest gun laws in the USA, as it does not require a permit to buy or possess a firearm. No, we're not protected from that, because of that easy access.

On an average, more than 90 Americans lose their lives to gun violence every day, a daily toll of heartbreak and tragedy in communities across the US.

"These devices take advantage of a firearm's natural recoil to "bump-fire" the firearm thereby mimicking a machine gun without meeting the legal definition", Cleckner explained to Fox News.
