News.com.au was refused access to Guns & Guitars in Paddock's home town of Mesquite on Wednesday a few hours after the store's manager, Chris Sullivan, had given an interview saying he felt no guilt about selling him the gun. Paddock killed himself before police reached his hotel room.

A modified bump stock rifle was also found, which allows a gun to simulate rapid automatic gunfire.

The attack, which lasted between nine and 11 minutes, killed 58 people and injured more than 500. "What Congress can do - what Congress must do - is pass laws that keep our citizens safe", Senator Chuck Schumer, Democrat of NY, said on the Senate floor on Monday, October 2.

Speaking at a press conference, he said law enforcement authorities are in communication with Danley and anticipate "some information here from her shortly".

Investigators found that Paddock meticulously planned the shooting. Machine guns owned before that date are still legal to own and can be transferred to another party with approval from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.

Paddock fired hundreds of rounds, the deadliest mass shooting in US history with no apparent ideological or political motive. Again, we would like to send our thoughts and prayers to everyone impacted by this tragedy!

"There are reports her ID was used for booking the hotel or some such detail", Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said. He never gave any indication or reason to believe he was unstable or unfit at any time. The president, when asked at a hospital about gun control, replied, "We're not going to talk about that today". They didn't know what they would find inside; how many people or how many weapons.

Police also confirmed the presence of cameras in the hotel, set up by the suspect. With a fully automatic firearm, one trigger pull can unleash continuous rounds until the magazine is empty.

In the bodycam footage, officers urgently order people away from the direction of the gunfire while a series of shots can be heard in the near background. "That would be very hard to do with anything other than an automatic weapon", Cohen said.

"The people are hurting and they want to lash out and they are lashing out at the wrong family, wrong people", Geary's daughter said.
