Calls for stricter gun laws face political gridlock

Air Force One lands at Mc Carran International Airport in Las Vegas on Wednesday with the Mandalay Bay resort in the background

"We're looking, I can tell you", Trump said. Passing restrictions will prove daunting in the GOP-controlled Congress.

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 vigil was organized by the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. "Congress is complicit each day it fails to act", he later added in a tweet.

The problem is in "this town", Murphy said, referring to Washington, DC.

Ireland taken to court over Apple tax bill
This work will continue, "notwithstanding the fact that the Commission has taken this wholly unnecessary step", it concluded. However, since then, little headway has been made by Ireland to reclaim the payment requested by the Commission.

Paddock would not have been breaking any laws by openly carrying a gun as "open carry" is permitted in the state.

"It does sound like it was steady fire", Van's manager Todd Sarotte said after watching video of the shooting in Las Vegas. It's a completely different argument to say that public officials shouldn't be allowed to offer policy proposals - or even suggestions for how to avoid the next shooting.

"The Democrats are going to keep politicizing every tragedy that occurs - I think that's despicable on their part", said Representative Chris Collins of NY.

Congress has been unable, or unwilling, to approve gun control legislation after recent mass shootings - including one targeting lawmakers playing baseball - and it is unlikely to consider new bills after the attack in Las Vegas.

Packers at Cowboys Point Spread: NFL Week 5 Odds, Prediction
The Packers lost Aaron Rodgers early in the game due to a broken collarbone which was vital for the Bears winning the game. Green Bay routed the visiting Bears 35-14 behind four Rodgers touchdown passes, two to Jordy Nelson.

Republican Rep. Lee Zeldin says he looks at all meaningful gun legislation that comes across his desk. While House Speaker Paul Ryan and other Republican leaders have asked Americans to donate blood in the wake of the shooting, Pelosi said Republicans "have to give some political blood".

Sunday night's shooting in Las Vegas, in which at least 58 people were killed and at least 515 were injured, will no doubt focus a spotlight on Nevada's gun laws, some of which are among the nation's least restrictive.

Last week, House Majority Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana, who was critically injured in June when a gunman opened fire on him and other members of Congress practicing baseball, was warmly welcomed back to work. "I think this is going to be a long-term fight". It would change a law that requires a special license from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives in order to purchase a firearm silencer.

Then, there's also a federal background check.

Sports Illustrated projects Oklahoma State to play Texas A&M in a bowl
With different mindset, he said, the Aggies believe 2017 can be different. "We certainly did that as much as we could". If that's good enough, that's good enough. "No matter what happens Saturday, we're playing football the next week".
