Meanwhile, President Donald Trump traveled to Las Vegas to meet with law enforcement officers and survivors of the shooting outside the Mandalay Bay hotel casino that killed 58 people and wounded almost 500 others.

"I will never lie down when the President of this great country comes to shake my hand!" he wrote.

The president also plans to meet with first responders later in the day.

"Melania and I are praying for every American who has been hurt, wounded or lost the ones they loved so dearly in this bad, awful attack", he said. NBC News reported Tuesday that a different Las Vegas gun store, New Frontier Armory, said Paddock purchased a rifle and shotgun once, but that the weapons were likely not used in the attack. He arrived with Republican Nevada senator Dean Heller - who seemed to have flown to D.C. after public appearances earlier this week in Las Vegas specifically to return on Air Force One with the president - and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, who said three of his constituents from Bakersfield, California, were among the 58 concertgoers murdered in Sunday's mass shooting. We stand together to help you carry your pain.

On a sombre note, he added: Our souls are stricken with grief for every American who lost a husband or a wife, a mother or a father, a son or a daughter. We know that your sorrow feels endless.

His first stop was the University Medical Center, where he spent over 90 minutes visiting with recovering victims, some with severe injuries, and listening to their stories.

Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders will hold a briefing today to discuss the White House's latest plans and administrative agenda. We met patients who were absolutely, terribly wounded, and doctors and nurses who have done a job that's indescribable.

Most recently, Harry did something incredibly sweet, stopping in the middle of the Games to write a very important letter. Back in the good old days if you so much as looked at a prince amusing he could have you put in the stocks.

The White House says President Donald Trump welcomes a review of US policy on so-called bump stock devices that legally make semi-automatic rifles into faster-firing automatic weapons. "Y'all have made me feel so loved and I'm eternally grateful for that!"

President Donald Trump is reckoning with the aftermath of a deadly mass shooting in Las Vegas when he visits the city on Wednesday. Shooters call them "range candy" - something to show off with.

Until his final remarks, Mr Trump focused his comments during the trip on praising recovery efforts rather than on grieving for the dead.

He highlighted instances in which off-duty officers risked their lives after Stephen Paddock, 64, fired at a crowd of 22,000-plus concertgoers from his room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas Sunday evening.

"Nobody cared what you looked like last night".

"The NRA believes that devices created to allow semi-automatic rifles to function like fully-automatic rifles should be subject to additional regulations", the NRA said in a written statement.
