"Families at home did not send us to Washington for our thoughts and prayers", Clark said in a statement.

Despite multiple high-profile mass shootings over the last decade, Congress has not passed recent gun control legislation.

It is also legal in Nevada to purchase or sell a machine gun or silencer so long as the item is registered and meets federal regulations, the National Rifle Association says on its website.

Shares of Las Vegas casino companies plunged Monday.

DETROW: It's the flip side for many Democrats today.

"I'm glad the president is going to Las Vegas".
