You don't need a permit to buy a gun in Nevada

"My heart breaks for Las Vegas", Blumenthal said, according to Town Hall.

Congress has been unable, or unwilling, to approve gun control legislation after recent mass shootings - including one targeting lawmakers playing baseball - and it is unlikely to consider new bills after the attack in Las Vegas. The innocent could be safer only if the country bans assault rifles with large ammunition magazines that are used by the mass murderers.

The bill is a broad piece of legislation created to increase hunters' access to federal lands, but tucked into it is the silencer provision that is the brainchild of Rep. Jeff Duncan, a Republican from SC.

Pelosi said the GOP's failure to act "is about money".

Congressman Earl Blumenauer said: "From Orlando to Roseburg, OR and now Las Vegas, the carnage has only continued". "But the rest of the facts seem pretty bloody clear to me. Nobody would say a jackhammer is silent". ".That's what contributes to disproportionate rates of mass violence in the U.S.".

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton cited silencers as a possible advantage for mass shooters in her call for action.
