Republican leaders are making it clear that Congress will take no action on gun legislation in the wake of the massacre in Las Vegas.
    
They refused to entertain Democratic demands to expand background checks for gun purchases and tighten restrictions on semi-automatic weapons, but also shelved their own House bill that would have loosened access to gun silencers.
    
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says he thinks "it's premature to be discussing legislative solutions, if there are any." His comments came after the mass shooting that killed at least 59 people and wounded hundreds more.
