Las Vegas shooter 'sick man'

Gabrielle Giffords Mark Kelly

Two Nevada gun shops confirmed Monday that they sold firearms to Mandalay Bay shooter Stephen Paddock in the previous year and said he passed all required background checks. There were also some handguns in the room.

In the wake of the shooting, which took place Sunday night, Gillibrand said "we can not allow this to become the new normal. We are now cooperating with the ongoing investigation by local and federal law enforcement in any way we can", Sullivan said.

Police found 10 rifles inside Paddock's hotel room, and more when they searched his home Monday morning. "The police department, they've done such an incredible job", he said, according to a pool report.

Nevada law does not require firearms owners to have licenses or register their weapons, nor does it limit the number of firearms an individual posses.

However, in light of the Las Vegas shooting, others feel more can be done.

With it comes the frustrating repeat cycle of gun control debate that has raged in the States for years. He never gave any indication or reason to believe he was unstable or unfit at any time.

"It's an open investigation", said a store employee, before hanging up.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders faced several questions on gun-control policies on October 2 after a shooting in Las Vegas left at least 58 people dead. Paddock had been able to squeeze off a rapid stream of what sounded like fully automatic fire at the defenseless concert attendees at the outdoor Route 91 Harvest festival across the street.

Semi-automatic weapons are also legal in Nevada, as long as the possession adheres to the federal law.

He said that when a gun is automatic, that means "you pull the trigger once and rounds are fired in rapid succession".

"And I'll tell you what, I think we've done just as good in Puerto Rico, and it's actually a much tougher situation". Michel says he chatted with Paddock to get to know him and make sure there were no signs that he should not be allowed to buy a gun.
