According to reports, House Democrats will gather to protest against Republican inaction on gun control on Wednesday following the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history.

"When an Islamic terrorist blows up a school with kids in it, we are told not to judge all Muslims by the acts of a few", he said. "I don't know when it will be scheduled", House Speaker Paul Ryan said. Mark Kelly and his wife, former Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords are calling for action after a mass shooting in Las Vegas that killed at least 58. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) on the Senate floor. "At One Pulse for America, we will mourn for those who have been taken from us and redouble our efforts to defeat the unsafe SHARE Act in the U.S. Congress". Lewis asked. "This (gun violence) must stop and it must stop now". "The nation is counting on you".

WASHINGTON ― Following yet another mass shooting in America, Sen. They would also push for criminal liabilities for gun owners whose weapons end up in the wrong hands (kids and/or people not allowed to have guns).

Georgia said it's permissible to bring a loaded weapon into an airport, right up to the TSA checkpoint. "Thoughts and prayers are important; we send our thoughts and prayers too".

There were new questions about whether the House would vote soon on legislation that would make it easier to buy gun silencers.

Asked what Congress is doing to try and prevent such tragedies in the future, Ryan cited "mental illness reform".

Sen. Dianne Feinstein says her own daughter had planned to attend the Route 91 musical festival in Las Vegas where concertgoers were slaughtered this week - but her plans changed and she didn't go. "It has been barely a year since what was previously the largest mass shooting in American history - the deadly attack at Pulse nightclub", Blumenthal said.

"This isn't just about what happened in Nevada, which is reason enough to do something, but it's happening on the streets of our cities on a daily basis", Pelosi said. Through the years after shootings in West Virginia, other names have been involved in the same including Orlando, San Bernardino, Newtown, Virginia Tech, Aurora, Columbine and now there is Las Vegas.
