Following the worst mass shooting in United States history on Sunday night, reactions came pouring in following the tragedy in Las Vegas. One person who made sure to give her thoughts was former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton who wasted no time singling out the National Rifle Association (NRA) during a multi-tweet post on Twitter.

Hillary on Vegas

On Sunday night outside of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, thousands were on hand to enjoy the final night of the Route 91 Harvest Festival. As country music star Jason Aldean performed for those in attendance, shots were fired into the crowd from high up above.

Hundreds of rounds scattered in the area, as panic quickly ensued. Minute by minute screams could be heard along the Vegas strip, as videos were uploaded onto social media from those on the ground. As law enforcement arrived, they made their way to the 32nd floor of a nearby hotel where the shooter had been located. However, before the police could make their way inside the room in question, the suspect had taken his own life, but not before killing at least 50 and injuring more than 400. The suspect has since been identified as Stephen Paddock, a 64-year-old resident of Mesquite, Nevada, which is located right outside the city of Las Vegas. In response, Hillary Clinton gave her thoughts in a series of October 2 posts on social media.

Taking to Twitter on Monday morning, Hillary Clinton didn't hold back her thoughts, while highlighting the tragic nature of the shooting in question.

Clinton expressed her sadness, saying that the entire nation was "grieving" with the victims, describing the shooting as a "cold-blooded massacre."

Hillary Clinton then turned her attention to the NRA, as the debate and conversation over gun control became front and center once again.

"Imagine the deaths if the shooter had a silencer, which the NRA wants to make easier to get," she added. In her third and final tweet regarding the issue, Clinton doubled down. "Our grief isn't enough," the former Democratic nominee noted, stating, "We can and must put politics aside, stand up to the NRA, and work together to try to stop this from happening again."

Trump's response

While Hillary Clinton was giving her reaction to the mass shooting in Las Vegas, Donald Trump sent out his "warmest condolences and sympathies" to the victims on Twitter, before elaborating further in a speech at the White House. As the nation mourns yet another senseless tragedy that claimed the lives of dozens of innocent Americans, only time will tell what the next step will be for the country moving forward.
