Pelosi Calls for Select Committee on Gun Violence After Las Vegas Shooting

Pelosi Calls for Select Committee on Gun Violence After Las Vegas Shooting”

Last month, a House committee advanced a bill, the Sportsmen's Heritage and Recreational Enhancement Act, that would make it easier to purchase firearm silencers - which are now treated akin to machine guns and explosives by federal authorities.

The Republican president has cast himself as a friend to firearms owners and the powerful National Rifle Association lobby. Now, 48% cite "protection" as their No. 1 reason for owning a gun while one in three say hunting remains their main reason for possessing a firearm.

Brady Campaign and Center Co-presidents Kris Brown and Avery Gardiner issued the following joint statement on the shooting at a country music festival last night in Las Vegas. While it is against the law to carry a concealed firearm without a permit, Nevada allows for the open carrying of a firearm without a permit. But those bills have not proceeded as far as the silencer legislation.

Both the senators Blumenthal and Murphy called for increased the gun control legislation. Sen.

Warren tweeted on Monday, "Tragedies like Las Vegas have happened too many times".

There was still little information that had been made public about the type of weapons the Vegas gunman used and how he acquired the weapons.

In this tragic moment, I encourage all Americans to stand together in solidarity to support the Las Vegas community and all those effected.

In an outdoor news conference, former Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, grievously wounded in a 2011 attack, turned to the Capitol, raised her fist and said, "the nation is counting on you".

Though Ryan's record may give cause for concern to advocates of a legislative solution to curbing gun violence, his comments at a CNN town hall event do leave the door slightly ajar on compromising with Pelosi toward gun control.

The stocks surged in mid-September after Reuters reported, citing senior USA officials, that the Trump administration is working to make it easier for US gun makers to sell small arms to foreigners. Now is the time to take positive action to keep America safer. "Do not wait. The nation is counting on you".

The Las Vegas shooting is now the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history - and the U.S.is the only nation in the world where this happens so often.

"Legally, you can not own it or possess it unless you go through the Class 3 paperwork and all the extensive background checks", he said.

Congressman Andre Carson said it is time people need to stop hiding behind the false narrative that enacting common sense gun policies somehow limits the rights of law-abiding Americans. "If there's people running around with guns, they're gonna find us.'" he said. Chris Murphy (D-Connecticut) and Sen. Your thoughts and prayers aren't going to stop the next shooting.

The Gun Violence Archive lists itself as a not-for-profit organization that documents gun violence and gun crime nationally.

Hunting rifles and home defense weapons are offered for sale at the Bangor Gun Show at the Bangor Auditorium, Sept. 12, 2009.

In the latest Gallup numbers, 55% of people said they wanted stricter gun laws while just 10% wanted less strict laws. "They are weapons of mass destruction".

"All we need is love", responded a fan named Leonard.
