House Speaker Paul Ryan on Tuesday said Republicans have no scheduled plan to vote on a bill that would ease rules on gun silencers, in the wake of the deadliest shooting in modern U.S. history.
Reports had suggested the House could vote on the National Rifle Association-backed legislation, known as the SHARE Act, soon.
“That bill is not scheduled now,” Ryan told reporters. “I don’t know when it’s going to be scheduled.”
On Sunday night, a gunman positioned high in a Las Vegas hotel opened fire on a music festival crowd. At least 59 people died and more than 500 were injured in the massacre.
The momentum behind the already controversial firearms bill appeared to sag after the deadly shooting. A hearing on the bill was previously delayed this summer when a shooter opened fire at a congressional baseball practice, severely wounding House Majority Whip Steve Scalise.
Ryan on Tuesday said the House’s immediate priority is passing its fiscal 2018 budget.
Senator Chris Murphy is calling for immediate action from Congress on gun control following the Las Vegas shooting.
Sens. Murphy, Blumenthal, and others made the same plea following Sandy Hook and Orlando, but nothing happened.

“What is unacceptable in the wake of the most deadly shooting in the history of your country is for this utter silence, this unintentional complicity from Congress to continue,” said Sen. Murphy.
While the call for action on gun control is a noble effort, some Republicans are crying foul and say Sen. Murphy is looking to capitalize on the tragedy and line his campaign war chest.
Senator Joe Manchin III, Democrat of West Virginia, was at a loss on Tuesday. After the massacre of children at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012, he challenged the pro-gun bent of his state and co-authored legislation to expand background checks of gun purchasers, only to see the measure fail.
“I just think that common sense has to prevail,” a dispirited Mr. Manchin said, explaining why he thinks that now is “the wrong time” to revive his bill. “But until that happens, until other people feel the same, we’re at a stalemate and that’s a shame.”
For years, amid a string of mass shootings in places whose names are by now seared into the national psyche ? Columbine, Aurora, Virginia Tech, Newtown, San Bernardino, Orlando and now Las Vegas ? Democrats have tried to enact what they call “common-sense” gun restrictions. Time and time again, they have failed.
This week’s massacre in Las Vegas, which killed at least 59 people and injured more than 500, appears to have done little to change Washington’s gun control dynamic.
