Vegas shooter was most law-abiding killer in USA history

Stephen Paddock the man who let loose a barrage of bullets on the Las Vegas Strip in the worst mass shooting in modern

On Thursday, NRA officials agreed that bump stocks, an accessory which allows semi-automatic rifles to operate like fully automatic ones "should be subject to additional regulations".

"Oh, God, yes, it's been insane".

The sheer volume of gun deaths in the U.S.is overwhelming, and it's understandable that many people feel powerless in the face of so much senseless killing. He said his distributors sold out, too.

Sunday's massacre in Las Vegas spurred a ritual-like response from USA politicians following the mass shootings that have left a trail of victims across the country: Democrats renewed demands for tougher gun laws while Republicans offered up prayers but showed no signs of supporting such legislation.

The website for one such product, Slide Fire, shows several videos in which shooters launch multiple rounds per second in bursts that sound nearly indistinguishable from automatic fire.

Washington Senators Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell have signed onto legislation introduced by California Senator Dianne Feinstein and other Senate Democrats to ban so-called bump stocks.

After listening to recordings taken during Sunday night's shooting, some experts say the gunman could have used a fully automatic weapon or a semiautomatic weapon that was modified to increase its firing speed.

Pretty soon, bump stocks may not be on sale at all. The group has been a vocal force in stopping gun control legislation in the aftermath of past mass shootings, and in its statement supporting regulation of bump stocks said, "Banning guns from law-abiding Americans based on the criminal act of a madman will do nothing to prevent future attacks".

"This morning over coffee I was having a moment in myself thinking 'I may have very well been the last person to shake hands with that man", Mr Sullivan said.

It instructs the department to vigorously defend religious-liberty protections in federal law. Donald Trump surrounded by religious right faith leaders and board member Michele Bachmann.

But the effort failed in 2013 amid strong opposition from gun groups such as the National Rifle Association. "I am unable to reorder because of the demand". "We led the charge on regulating bump stocks!"

The men said "things got nasty" earlier that day when other reporters were questioning customers outside the store.

The company did not return requests for comment. These comments and the President's blind support for the NRA's risky agenda are soul-crushing - not just because I'm a gun violence survivor, but also because I vote in this country and I care about how I leave it for my daughter.

Some local retailers sell the part.it's also available for purchase online for under $200.

Housekeepers say they noticed nothing that would have alerted them to his plans, but Joseph Lombardo, sheriff of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, said he had used more than 10 bags to carry his weapons up to the 32nd floor.

Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., chairman of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, said Tuesday he had never heard of a bump stock, even though he owns many guns.

Although the GOP is known for its support of more lax gun regulations, Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan said on Thursday in an interview with MSNBC that it's "clearly something we need to look into".

A bump stock, according to the New York Times, allows the rifle to move back and forth, and uses the recoil energy of each shot.

"I will order them if someone wants one, but I highly discourage them from purchasing", said Will Dance, a retailer with Red Hills Arms in Tallahassee, Florida.
