President Trump's spokeswoman, echoing an argument often heard from pro-gun groups and their supporters, on Monday dismissed questions about policy responses to the Las Vegas massacre, saying it is too soon for such talk.
“This is an unspeakable tragedy. Today is a day for consoling of survivors and mourning those we lost," said Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary. "There is a time and place for political debate but now is a time to unite as a country.”
Sanders did not rule out a gun control discussion, however. She told reporters in response to several questions about gun restrictions that policy issues are "something that we can talk about in the coming days.”
