More Republicans in Congress, and NRA, open to changes on "bump stocks"

More Republicans in Congress, and NRA, open to changes on

The president and first lady went to Las Vegas to meet and talk with survivors of the shooting, as well as first responders, doctors and nurses during the visit.

President Donald Trump touched down in Las Vegas, Nevada, Wednesday afternoon, and just as suspected, he completely dodged questions about gun violence. "Don't tell me it's about protecting the Second Amendment when you won't stand up for the First Amendment".

The said mass shooting surpassed the 2016 Orlando nightclub shooting as the deadliest mass shooting by a lone gunman in United States history. "It's something we want to be part of the conversation on going forward".

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in response, "We welcome that and a conversation on that".

Trump later told reporters, "I just met some of the most wonderful people".

Earlier during his visit, Trump visited the victims in the hospital and said during his conference, "When the worst of humanity strikes - and strike it did - the best of humanity responds".

"Americans defied death and hatred with love and with courage", he said, according to CNN, adding that the nation thanked the many heroes - both emergency services workers and civilians - who acted so quickly.

Earlier, Trump used a brief address from the White House to call for unity in the aftermath of the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history, calling it an "act of pure evil".

"It makes you very proud to be an American when you see the job that they've done", said Trump of the hospital staff.

Even though he had the required motorcade, as well as all of the protocol and security of a presidential occasion, President Donald Trump's visit to University Medical Center, or UMC, was decidedly low key and long-lasting. Twelve of the rifles there were fitted with so-called bump stocks, officials said, allowing the guns to be fired as though they were automatic weapons.

Separately, a GoFundMe for the victims of Las Vegas has raised nearly $9 million as of Wednesday afternoon. "You're not alone. We will never leave your side", he said.

The president says those details will be announced at "an appropriate time". He attributed two young women who were total strangers with saving his life.
