Trump calls Vegas shooter 'demented,' praises police for quick response

Trump calls Vegas shooter 'demented,' praises police for quick response”

From the parking lot, you can see the Mandalay Bay.

At least 59 people were killed and hundreds of others injured - including at least 45 who remain in a critical condition - following the shooting on Sunday night.

Las Vegas police have released body camera footage from Sunday night's shooting. Let's let these people that lost loved ones in Las Vegas have some time to mourn before you start ripping on gun laws.

Thomas Gunderson, one of the hundreds injured in the deadliest mass shooting in US history, shared a video of him standing to meet the Trumps during their visit to meet victims of the shooting Wednesday.

Around 20 people gathered outside First United Church of Christ in Milford for a candlelight vigil. Effectively, the semiautomatic weapon still fires one bullet for every pull of the trigger, but the bump stock automates the trigger-pull process, allowing shooters to fire at a rate of 400 to 800 rounds a minute. "We saw the objective this weekend".

Chris Sullivan, owner of Guns & Guitars in Mesquite, Nev.

"This is a weapon and a man of mass destruction", said one ATF spokesperson.

Bump stocks essentially turn standard civilian AR-15's and AK-47's into automatic weapons, though accuracy is diminished.

Nevada does not license gun owners, require guns to be registered, limit the number of guns a person can purchase in one sale, or impose a waiting period on gun purchases. He has many of his own. You know, today, President Trump didn't as much make it about him as he had the day before.

Paddock had 23 guns, including two rifles with scopes set up on tripods at the windows of the hotel room.

Anyone can walk into a hotel with firearms without being detected.

"On top of the enormous political pressure, the visuals Trump will see, hundreds of severely injured young people, could provoke him to act", this source said. Yes it was. It was. It's incredible. The message that I have is that we are a great country. "It reflects poorly on something we find enjoyable".

"It is absolutely appropriate and necessary for the commander in chief to come visit", Brooks said. "Ban manufacturing or possession of accessories that accelerate a semi-automatic rifle to that of an automatic".

While it seems mass shootings have become more common over the past several years, there's been no resolution - or even substantive policy debate - on the topic of gun control. "It's just feel-good stuff".

Trump added that "on a local level" Puerto Rico needed to "give us more help".

Lisa Hansen, protest organizer, said, "I don't think that the Second Amendment was created to include weapons of mass destruction for everyday citizens".
