Democrats criticized for talking gun control so soon after Vegas shooting

"What Congress can do - what Congress must do - is pass laws that keep our citizens safe", Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY said on the Senate floor.

Giffords finished, "The nation is counting on you".

Reacting to the mass shooting in Las Vegas that has claimed the lives of 59 people, Trump said, "Melania and I are praying for every American who has been hurt, wounded, or lost the ones they love so dearly in this awful, bad attack". Kelly said guns and politics go hand-in-hand. But critics call it little more than a vehicle to ease restrictions on purchasing silencers and armor-piercing bullets, and letting people carry concealed weapons in any state.

A separate bill sponsored by Rep. Richard Hudson, R-N.C., would allow gun owners with a state-issued concealed carry permit to hide a handgun in any state that allows concealed carry.

"We need a president who recognizes that we have a gun violence problem and will work towards solutions", Kelly said of Trump, who offered his condolences to shooting victims in a short statement from the White House, but made no mention of guns. "#LasVegas #Newtown", she wrote in a series of tweets Monday in relation to the Las Vegas shooting. "I'm exhausted of waking up to horrific news like this, and I'm sure you are, too".

"I am praying for the victims of this shooting, their families and friends".

"In this tragic moment, I encourage people across America to stand together in solidarity, and to support the Las Vegas community and all of those affected, especially by giving blood and encouraging others to do the same", he said. "In the face of unspeakable evil, our whole nation must respond with countless acts of kindness, warmth and generosity", he said.

"This must stop. It is positively infuriating that my colleagues in Congress are so afraid of the gun industry that they pretend there aren't public policy responses to this epidemic", Murphy said in a statement". A group of Democratic lawmakers asked Ryan to remove the bill from the House calendar indefinitely. There are. The thoughts and prayers of politicians ring cruelly hollow if they are not paired with action.

Democrats wondered, however, whether the Las Vegas attack would change any minds on Capitol Hill. But the speaker has shown no interest in legislation to tighten up gun laws. "There's a lot we need to do in the wake of this mass shooting".
