Calls For Tougher Gun Control Laws Grow After Las Vegas Attack

05 Octobre 2017

The president also drove past his own Trump hotel. "It's a very sad day for me, personally", he said.

Fifty-nine people were killed and more than 500 wounded when Stephen Paddock, a 64-year-old retiree, opened fire on a country music festival in Las Vegas from his hotel room on October 1, according to police.

Sullivan told CBS News that Paddock purchased five rifles from the store in the past year, including one that was sold September 28, the day Paddock checked into the Mandalay Bay Hotel, where he launched an attack that killed at least 58 people and wounded or injured more than 500. Paddock's motive remained a mystery.

"Our souls are stricken with grief for every American who lost", Mr Trump said.

Trump has had mixed success in the "consoler-in-chief" role that is periodically expected of US presidents.

"When.the worst of humanity strikes, and strike it did, the best of humanity responds", he said.

After the hospital, Trump visited the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, where he spoke with law enforcement, including Sheriff Joseph Lombardo.

Lancement de la campagne de vaccination — Grippe
Une démarche qui ne concerne ni femmes enceintes, ni sujets immunodéprimés, ni ceux qui se font vacciner pour la première fois. L'épidémie de l'an dernier a rappelé la gravité de cette pathologie dont la survenue et la dangerosité restent imprévisibles.

After meeting with first responders, Trump told reporters he "just met some of the most unbelievable people" and that he met with patients that were "terribly wounded". "Until the events of last night".

Three years later, Trump, beginning his flip-flop tendency, changed his mind about gun control, insisting it was a violation of the protections guaranteed by the Second Amendment.

The president has also described the shooter as a "sick and demented person", and said that discussion about any new gun regulations is for "a later time". "But that's not for now".

Trump's views on gun control had been malleable before snapping into the orthodoxy of the Republican consensus when he began to seek their nomination for the presidency.

Colonials Demand Action, a student group that lobbies for gun violence prevention, said in a statement Tuesday that the shooting was a "tragedy of unspeakable proportions" and called on policymakers to enact gun violence reforms.

The president will meet with victims of Sunday night's shooting, as well as first responders, medical professionals and local officials, according to his official schedule.
