Las Vegas Shooting

Las Vegas Shooting

New sales estimates suggest that Obama’s support for gun controls may have driven earlier spikes.

Paige Gasper, a college student from California, filed the first lawsuit against MGM Resorts alleging negligence in the shooting that killed 58 people.

Victims allege the maker of a device used by the gunman acted negligently by manufacturing a tool to allow semiautomatic weapons to fire like automatic ones.

"I believe I have the right to air it, but I also believe in victims’ rights," creator Ryan Murphy said.

Walmart and Cabela's confirm they are no longer selling "bump stocks," which make firearms shoot nearly as fast as automatic weapons.

The "bump stock" was billed as a device for people with "limited mobility." Now the company markets to people who want their rifles to shoot like machine guns.

Some of the crosses have pictures of the victims affixed to them.

"The whole week, you’ve got dogs with patients who have been shot several times. And they see the dog and they just melt."

Resorts and casinos are taking more safety precautions, but performers are still taking the stage.

The powerful National Rifle Association says lawmakers should "immediately review whether these devices comply with federal law."

Las Vegas police changed a key detail of the timeline Monday, revealing that the gunman shot a hotel security guard minutes before opening fire at concertgoers on the Strip.

After the shooting on the Las Vegas Strip, hundreds of people poured into local hospitals. Medical professionals had never seen anything like it.

Automatic weapons are heavily regulated by the federal government, but "bump stocks" like the one used by Las Vegas gunman are cheap and legal to buy.

And increasing the chances that users stumble down an algorithm-powered conspiracy video rabbit hole.

Danley, 62, is described as a friendly mother and grandmother, who met Paddock while still married to her ex-husband.

Rows of slot machines and gambling tables sat empty Tuesday inside the Las Vegas resort Stephen Paddock used to carry out his deadly attack on a concert.

In an all-too-familiar scene, hundreds around the world have united in mourning to pay their respects for those killed in Sunday's mass shooting in Las Vegas.

Although they dominate the headlines, mass shootings are less well studied than other forms of gun violence. And with the gun lobby poised to pounce on any scientist who suggests new restrictions without cast-iron evidence, many are reluctant to stick their necks out.

"Something has changed in this country," Aldean said in his first tweet since the shooting.

Holding back tears, Kimmel said: “I want this to be a comedy show. I hate talking about stuff like this. I just want to laugh about things every night, but it seems to be increasingly difficult lately. It feels like someone has opened a window to hell.”

"We are united."

Though federal law heavily regulates the purchase of fully automatic weapons, a Nevada "loophole" allows gun owners to turn assault rifles into machine guns for only a few hundred bucks.

A day after a man opened fire at a Las Vegas concert, survivors are dealing with the trauma of the attack — and not knowing the fate of their wounded loved ones.

Facebook, Google, and Twitter always promise to do better. Why can't they?

The festival shooting had echoes of attacks at a music venue in Paris in 2015, the Pulse nightclub in 2016, and Grande's concert earlier this year. Responses have varied.

Experts say the group is trying to counter its diminished status by playing up its reputation to its remaining followers.

He has not stopped thinking about the chilling moment since.

Two other women were injured in the attack that killed more than 50 people.

At least 58 people — including a college student, an ER nurse, and a mechanic — were killed Sunday.

"It was an act of pure evil."

Police said Stephen Paddock, 64, is the gunman who opened fire on a festival crowd in Las Vegas Sunday night.

This post will be updated as more hoaxes surface.

BuzzFeed News is updating with the latest information on the Las Vegas shooting here.

Guns aren’t going away in America. But studies have found several ways to reduce the current annual toll of 30,000 gun deaths — from universal background checks to smart policing.
