Donald Trump calls Las Vegas gunman 'demented'

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders points as she begins to take questions from the media during the daily briefing in the Brady Press Briefing Room of the White House Thursday Oct. 5 2017

Mr Trump and first lady Melania Trump met privately with victims of the shooting at a hospital, praising them and the doctors who treated them as he visited the city.

The post read, "I will never lie down when the President of this great country comes to shake my hand!"

On Wednesday, Trump took a grim tour of Las Vegas, meeting face-to-face with victims and first responders.

"Let's wait", said Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., who has repeatedly introduced bipartisan background check legislation to toughen background checks and expand them to all commercial firearm sales, including gun show and internet purchases.

In Las Vegas, Trump spoke of the families who "tonight will go to bed in a world that is suddenly empty".

With over 500 people injured in the attack, the Trumps visited one of the hospitals where survivors are recovering.

But he concluded by saying: "Our souls are stricken with grief for every American who lost a husband or a wife, a mother or a father, a son or a daughter". We stand together to help you carry your pain.

"My warmest condolences and sympathies to the victims and families of the bad Las Vegas shooting", Mr Trump tweeted that day.

"To those who say we can't talk about machine gun massacres right after the massacre: I'm done waiting for the "right time" to talk about it", Inslee said in a statement Tuesday.

Investigators in Nevada on Tuesday confirmed the weapons owned by Las Vegas shooter 64-year-old Stephen Paddock included a modified "bump stock" rifle, which has an accessory that simulates automatic gunfire.

"Nobody cared what you looked like last night".

At least one of the rifles found in the hotel suite was outfitted with a "bump stock", a legal attachment that allows a semi-automatic weapon to fire at the same rate as a fully automatic firearm.
