White House Press Secretary chokes back tears while discussing Las Vegas massacre

White House Press Secretary chokes back tears while discussing Las Vegas massacre

President Donald Trump believes that now is not the time to talk about gun control in the immediate aftermath of the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history, the White House said Monday. "So, I think we have to, when that time comes for those conversations to take place, then I think we have to look at things that may actually have a real impact".

"Today is a day for consoling the survivors, and mourning those we lost".

Following Monday's press conference, the president and first lady Melania Trump led a moment of silence on the White House's South Lawn, along with Vice President Mike Pence and second lady Karen Pence.

There is nothing inherently wrong with Sanders stating the president's positions on gun control.

And with the investigation ongoing, she added, "It would be premature for us to discuss policy". We've been focused on the fact that we had a severe tragedy in our country. "Now is the time to unite as a country. Imagine the deaths if the shooter had a silencer, which the NRA wants to make easier to get", Clinton wrote.




She also took a shot at Hillary Clinton, who tweeted that Congress was about to pass a law making it easier to buy silencers, and that many concert-goers on the Las Vegas strip said it was the loud gunshots that prompted them to safely flee.

"I haven't spoken with the president about that specific issue, but I don't think that that is something that would have changed" the outcome, Sanders said. What is different is NY is right next to New Jersey and CT with similar gun laws and we're right next to IN and Wisconsin.

"I think that's something we can talk about in the coming days and see what that looks like moving forward".

The press secretary emphasized that Trump is a supporter of the 2nd amendment, but would not say if any potential policies will be immediately ruled out.

"The only person with blood on their hands is the shooter, and this isn't the time for us to go after not any other individuals or organizations", she said. Chicago's gun laws are no different than NY and Los Angeles.
