Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said the White House "welcomes" the conversation about regulating the use of bump stocks in the wake of the Las Vegas shooting. Sanders added that "right now our focus has been on healing and uniting the country" and reminded reporters that Trump is still "a strong supporter" of the 2nd amendment. "That hasn't changed."

Minutes before: The NRA called on the federal government to review whether there should be "additional regulations" placed on bump stocks.
