PolitiFact: Clinton suppressor statements after Las Vegas shooting 'False'

Las Vegas shooting

"Everyone who's upset who thinks we can pass gun laws to stop an evil person from killing a lot of people with a auto, a van, a gun, whatever, they should run for office and make that point".

Laura Ingraham said it's "despicable" that Hillary Clinton and other prominent Democrats are calling for gun control immediately after the Las Vegas massacre, which left at least 59 people dead and 527 injured.

The pattern has repeated itself many times: After a mass shooting, widespread outrage focuses on the NRA and the politicians who take money from it, only to see them all emerge further enriched.

The NRA was silent for days after the 2012 Sandy Hook shootings in which Adam Lanza killed 20 school children and six adults with a semiautomatic rifle. But she further wrote "It is long past time for Congress to take action on gun safety to save innocent lives", nearly everyone must know by now that strong gun laws do not stop criminals from obtaining guns and using them, just look at Chicago. Yet the NRA broke its own record for campaign spending during the 2016 election cycle.

"Nowhere but America do horrific large-scale mass shootings happen with this degree of regularity", Sen.

Tesla has powered such smaller islands as Kauai in Hawaii and Ta'u in American Samoa , according to the company's website . But it's an expensive one, and it's completely unclear how the nation of 3 million people would come up with the funds.

But NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch took aim at the American College of Physicians after it called gun violence "a critical issue of public health". Their bill is in no way created to help weapons manufacturers sell more stuff, even though gun sales have gone down since President Barack Obama left office. "They're doing right now what they do after every mass shooting, which is to go dark".

"We were watching the concert having a great time", one witness told the Las Vegas Sun, "then we hear what sounded like firecrackers".

In this June 5, 2017 photo, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton speaks at a fundraiser in Baltimore. Watts says the attack in Las Vegas means that "what was an absurd idea is now an immoral and repugnant idea".

Everyone talks about gun control laws after shootings.

Just hours after the tragedy in Las Vegas, gun stocks rose Monday morning.
