Las Vegas mass shooting revitalizes local debate on gun control

Las Vegas mass shooting revitalizes local debate on gun control

The Las Vegas shooting marked the 131st mass shooting in the U.S. since 1966 and has revitalized the debate on gun control.

Authorities say Stephen Paddock killed 59 people and injured more than 500 others while shooting from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino.

Police found dozens of guns in his hotel room and at his two homes.

A local gun store owner says new gun regulations won't help reduce mass shootings.

"The people choose to do what they're going to do. You can't legislate actions," said Bobby Goza, owner of 10-32 Supply, a gun store in downtown Beaumont. "From what I've seen and been told it was a legally-purchased semi-automatic rifle. He passed from what I understand multiple background checks and purchased every weapon legally."

Authorities say Paddock passed background checks when purchasing weapons.
