Stephen Paddock's family was in shock after the 64-year-old sowed terror on the Las Vegas strip in the worst mass shooting in recent US history

Ironically, the shooting ranges themselves agree that there should be more laws regulating guns across the US.

Is he really treating a visit to the White House like some kind of consolation prize for surviving a massacre? They then head to an undisclosed location to meet with those "civilian heroes" and first responders.

Paddock, 64, fired his weapons at a Las Vegas concert Sunday night, killing 59 people and wounding over 500 more.

President Donald Trump touched down in Las Vegas, Nevada, Wednesday afternoon, and just as suspected, he completely dodged questions about gun violence.

Before leaving for Las Vegas, Trump told reporters at the White House that what happened was a "very sad thing" and that he and the first lady were going to pay their respects.

Yesterday's trip was the first time in his presidency that he has had to deal with the aftermath of a major mass shooting of the type that has become all too familiar.

Stephen Paddock's 9-minute hail of gunfire from his 32nd-floor suite in the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino rained down on 22,000 people attending the Route 91 Harvest Festival.

Mr Modi also said that their use of harsh language can not be a substitute for substantive charges against his government. Jaitley also said that the Prime Minister will announce an important scheme for the poor at 6:30 pm on Monday.

The president also described the shooter as a "sick and demented person", and said that discussion about any new gun regulations is for "a later time".

Mr Trump said last night: "It's a very, very sad day for me, personally".

Trump offered somber remarks about the shooting from the White House on Monday, saying "our unity can not be shattered by evil, our bonds can not be broken by violence". According to the United States Alcohol Tobacco & Firearms, 12 of the guns were modified with bump-fire stocks.

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".
