Regarding Las Vegas, we know very little about the shooter's motivations, the gun he used in his massacre, and how he acquired said gun, but that hasn't stopped Hillary Clinton from plowing forward with gun-control talking points.
But gun-control advocates paid a heavy political price for Mr Clinton's efforts: The NRA mobilised its members, which tend to be more politically active than supporters of gun control, according to the Washington Post.
The Republican-controlled House has yet to schedule a vote on the Sportsmen Heritage and Recreational Enhancement (SHARE) Act, a wide-ranging bill that includes the silencer provision, but opponents had feared it could come up for a vote as soon as this week.
In a separate statement, she called on her former colleagues to "find the courage it will take to make progress on the challenging issue of gun violence". "Of course they are".
"And that starts with guns, especially laws that help prevent guns, especially the most unsafe guns from falling into the wrong hands", Schumer continued.
She then said Charleston church killer Dylan Roof should have been stopped from buying a gun, but "the system is deliberately kept all creaky and slow".
"There is a tremendous proliferation of guns throughout this country, and there are tragedies that occur every day because of gun violence that we don't even hear about", said Northam in his speech at the forum.
Mr Obama presided over one of the worst times in American history for the gunning down of young black men by white police officers or armed security guards who overstepped the boundaries of human decency.
In the U.S., the death rate from all gun homicides is about 31 per million people, according to the New York Times. It is unclear from what polls or studies Clinton obtained the referenced numbers. "That wholesome public relations veneer masks something deeply sinister and profoundly destructive", writes Cash, before delivering her most scathing line: "There is no other way to say this: The NRA funds domestic terrorism".
In thrall to the National Rifle Association, as so many legislators are, they are ensuring that more of us - and yes, our families - will suffer violent deaths.
"We should have a gun registration program".
Theresa May said that Britons struggled to understand the US's attitude towards guns. "Assault weapons should be off the streets, as they were for ten years because of the legislation passed in '93 to'94".
"So when pressed - I saw a lot of these Congressmen on the other networks this morning - they were stumbling".
Clinton said laws should be changed to make gun makers liable for crimes committed. Virginia had the dubious distinction of being home to the deadliest mass shooting in modern history after 32 people died in the Virginia Tech mass shootings, until a gunman killed 49 in Orlando past year. (The guy who stands up, beer in hand, to flip him the bird at 1:20 is famous already on social media.) Listening to the audio this time, the rate of fire doesn't quite seem perfectly consistent; it does sound a bit more like the "Gatling crank" video I linked earlier.
