Hillary Clinton's Response to Las Vegas Shooting Calls for Gun Control

Yet she also focussed criticism on the powerful NRA, the most influential gun rights lobbying group in the country which helps fund political candidates across the nation who reject demands for greater gun control. "I think this is about chipping away at the Second Amendment", said Senator John Kennedy, referring to the clause in the US Constitution which guarantees citizens the right to bear arms. Among those lending their voices to the campaign are Donald Trump's eldest son, Donald Trump Jr.
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. Imagine the deaths if the shooter had a silencer'.

"Everyone who's upset who thinks we can pass gun laws to stop an evil person from killing a lot of people with a auto, a van, a gun, whatever, they should run for office and make that point".
"It's time for Congress to get off its ass and do something", said US Senator Chris Murphy of CT, where 26 young children and educators were killed in an attack on a school in 2012.
The NRA is supporting a congressional bill to remove a $200 fee on gun silencers. "It's where we should be going". It makes total sense.
