Hillary Clinton Blames Las Vegas Attack on NRA

Ingraham said it's clear that Clinton doesn't know anything about guns, because a suppressor would not have done much to mute the sound of the gunman's high-powered rifles.

The gun rights advocate said that if automatic and semi-automatic weapons are banned, than "pools, cars, cigarettes, alcohol, hands feet & fists" will be next. But she further wrote "It is long past time for Congress to take action on gun safety to save innocent lives", nearly everyone must know by now that strong gun laws do not stop criminals from obtaining guns and using them, just look at Chicago. One vendor told Fox News that "it sounded like a machine gun".

The casualties in the attack exceeded those of the Pulse nightclub tragedy in Florida more than a year ago. Chicago's Blackstone hotel said a man by the same name had reserved a room there in August - but never showed - as hundreds of thousands of people were attending the outdoor concert festival Lollapalooza, including Malia Obama, daughter of the former president.

The NRA was silent for days after the 2012 Sandy Hook shootings in which Adam Lanza killed 20 school children and six adults with a semiautomatic rifle.

Trump to pull out of Iran nuclear deal, U.S. media reports suggest
Trump, who has previously described the deal as an "embarrassment" to the U.S. , has repeatedly said the agreement is not beneficial to the country.

Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy said Monday morning that "the thoughts and prayers of politicians are cruelly hollow if they are paired with continued legislative indifference". "It's time for Congress to get off its ass and do something".

Sen. Richard Blumenthal, also a Democrat from CT, said he's "furious" at Congress for not acting on gun control. Still, Congress refuses to act. "I am more than frustrated, I am furious". The House is set to vote on legislation this week that includes a provision that would deregulate the sale of silencers. But regardless of the public's desire for common-sense gun control laws like universal background checks, Israel writes that the NRA is "forced to oppose them because of competing organizations".

The battle over gun restrictions has, meanwhile, played out in a more substantive fashion on the state level - and at the courts.
