Trump says Las Vegas shooter 'sick,' will discuss gun laws later

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday said the gunman in Sunday’s mass shooting in Las Vegas was “a very, very sick individual” but declined to call it domestic terrorism and said gun laws would be discussed later.

“We’ll be talking about gun laws as times goes by,” Trump told reporters at the White House. Asked if the shooting was an act of domestic terrorism, he added: “He was a sick man, a demented man. Lot of problems, I guess, and we’re looking into him very, very seriously.”
