Gabby Giffords Reacts to Las Vegas Shooting: "We Must Stop This"

Gabby Giffords Reacts to Las Vegas Shooting:

As a result of the shooting she survived more than six years ago, Giffords underwent several intense brain surgeries and still continues to undergo physical and speech therapy today. Too many days have passed, from one tragedy to the next.

"We do not have to live this way", he said.

Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., echoed Kelly's sentiments saying, "It's time for Congress to get off its a- and do something".

DETROW: Democrats think the public is on their side.

There could be one legislative legacy - the shooting may have slowed some pro-gun legislation. The margin of sampling error is ±2.8 percentage points for the full sample; it is larger for subgroups like leaned Republicans and leaned Democrats.

Did he have mental health issues? Many members argue that restricting weapons wouldn't cut down on violence or crime since people inclined to break the law would do so to get the weapon they want. The first House committee hearing on silencers was postponed because it had been scheduled on the day of the congressional shooting in Alexandria, Virginia, this summer. Is this likely to change?

"It will be sobering how quickly this issue fades", he said. Even a measure with overwhelming public support, like background checks for all firearm purchases, went nowhere in the Senate in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre.

A Pew Research survey released in June found that 47 percent of Americans think it's more important for the government to protect gun owners' rights than it is to control gun ownership.

"That bill is not scheduled now", House Speaker Paul Ryan told reporters, referring to a measure that also includes language making it more hard to classify certain ammunition as "armor piercing".

Twelve of the 23 guns in his hotel room were fitted with bump stocks, officials said, allowing the guns to be fired nearly as though they were automatic weapons. He stopped short of addressing gun measures. Lewis asked. "This (gun violence) must stop and it must stop now".

But it suggests gun violence is a leading cause of death in the US.

A few rank and file Republicans said they'd be open to talking about fixes, including Sen.

Rep. Ed Royce, R-Fullerton, supports a ban on bump fire stocks, an aide said.

"Somehow, when there's another shooting, then it's always for gun control", Davidson added. "It is sheer demagoguery to do otherwise". "What it takes is people that put these folks in office to take action". Candidate Hans Keirstead largely shares that view.

"This was an ambush if there ever was one", he said.

Paul Ryan: "People have a constitutional right to have semiautomatic rifles." . And 51 percent favor stricter enforcement of ownership.

Republicans hold the majority in both the Senate and the House of Representatives.

"It's great to see all of you and it's great to be back", Scalise said.

And they should not be allowed to delay effective legislation any longer. "In the interim, thousands more have been lost to the daily, ruthless toll of gun violence".

"The consequences of the laws are concentrated in a small number of congressional districts", according to Rosenthal.

Mr. Murphy isn't the only Democrat to call for gun control in the wake of Sunday's attack.

"It's good to have Steve back", Ryan said, later praising the efforts of heroes in Las Vegas - the people who shielded others from gunfire, he said, and those waiting in line to give blood.
