White House: 'Premature' to Discuss Gun Policy

White House: 'Premature' to Discuss Gun Policy”

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders became emotional as she spoke about the victims of last night's deadly shooting in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The Daily Caller asked Sanders if the president is frustrated with the seemingly indefinite length of the investigation, and she replied, "I think more important than the president being frustrated, I think the American people are frustrated".

While media across the world is highlighting the gun problem in the United States in the wake of the nation's worst mass shooting in its modern history, and stressing the need for gun control, the Trump administration is of the opinion that this is not the time to debate the issue.

Sanders said U.S. President Donald Trump learned about the incident early Monday and law enforcement officials were still at a fact finding period to gather all evidence.

"To my colleagues: your cowardice to act can not be whitewashed by thoughts and prayers", tweeted Murphy, who has pressed for stricter gun laws since the Sandy Hook massacre.

Sanders told reporters that having a debate on gun control is "not the place that we're in at this moment".

On Monday, the hashtag #GunControlNow spiked in the United States, with Democrats such as Hillary Clinton, Sen.

"There will be certainly time for that policy discussion to take place, but that's not the place that we're in", Sanders said.

"There's a difference between being a candidate and being the president", she said, before quickly moving onto the next question.

"We see a problem with any stories that are inaccurate or untruthful being presented to the American people as facts", she said, punting.

"Today is a day for consoling the survivors".
