Melania on Vegas shooting

On Sunday night along the Las Vegas strip, thousands attended the Route 91 Harvest Festival not far from the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. As the concert was coming to an end, shots could be heard [VIDEO]as they fired down onto those in attendance. As the people scattered in an attempt to find safer grounds, hundreds of shots were unloaded, which resulted in 58 deaths and over 500 injuries, according to the most recent reports on the incident.

Law enforcement quickly arrived on the scene, as they were made aware that the suspect was on the 32nd floor of a nearby hotel. As police rushed to the shooter's room, they found that he has already taken his life. The shooter has since been identified as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, who lived not far in Mesquite, Nevada. As the nation reflects back in horror at the events of the last day, Melania Trump offered her well wishes to the victims in a October 2 tweet.

Taking to her Twitter account on Monday, Melania Trump gave her thoughts and prayers to the victims of the mass shooting in Las Vegas. "My heart and prayers goes out to victims, families & loved ones!" Melania tweeted out, before using the hashtag, "#PrayForLasVegas." Not long after Melania sent out her tweet, those who oppose Donald Trump and the Republican Party took out their frustrations on the first lady.

Twitter reacts

After Melania Trump offered her prayers to the mass shooting victims and their families, it didn't take long before critics piled on. "In Feb your idiot husband signed a bill reversing an Obama rule to ban mentally ill from buying guns... go away sl*t," one tweet read.

"Oh shut up. No believes you're sincere. Oh wait, country music might mean white people to you & racist husband. But not about 3mil in PR," a Twitter user replied. "They don't need your prayers.

They need ,we all need, for a ban on this type of weapon. Weapons that can cause mass death in one clip," an additional tweet noted.

"Stephen Paddock..a christian terrorist...oh sh*t..how media will justify this christian born terrorism?????," another tweet added. "Prayers are a waste of time. Do something about gun control. There is no 2nd Amendment reason why any civilian needs a machine gun," a post noted. With another mass shooting taking place in the United States it appears the debate on the issue of gun control isn't going to end anytime soon.
