Earlier Mr Sullivan said he felt "physically ill" to think that he had interacted with Paddock before he committed the Las Vegas shooting killing 59 people.

"Stricter gun control is going to take effect against the law-abiding citizens, not against the criminals who are really wanting to get out and obtain the modifications that they want", Robert Autrey said. "The investigation's not even been completed". But even in light of recent shootings that have targeted federal lawmakers, numerous men and women in Congress in the US continue to oppose gun control.

"It's an open society and it's hard to prevent anything", he told MSNBC. In 2013, the Senate voted down a proposal to expand background checks in the wake of the Sandy Hook massacre.

At this time, when nowhere in the world seems safe from the threat of terrorist violence, allowing the threat to human life that domestic guns in society create is beyond appalling. It's a tool that's supposed to turn a semi-automatic rifle into a fully automatic one, without actually modifying the gun.
