More than 59 people are dead and more than 500 are injured after a gunman opened fire from the window of a Las Vegas casino on Monday, spraying bullets into the crowd of a country music festival below.
Republicans familiar with the bill's prospects in the House said the legislation was already facing unease from moderate Republicans, and Sunday's violence only made its quick passage more unlikely.
The structural impediments to change, meanwhile are formidable. Taming homegrown terror and tightening gun control will be dismissed as inappropriate or unnecessary politicizing of a tragedy and quickly become secondary to more pressing issues on the administration's agenda.
More than 10,000 people are killed in firearm assaults each year in the US.
What does Donald Trump say about gun laws?
If history is a guide, Trump will become tired of repeatedly being called upon to offer comfort after a massacre, an experience that caused Obama to become increasingly contemptible of lawmakers who refused to act. While lax gun laws play a role, a number of other factors also contribute, experts said.
"It's really a time that we have to heal. It's really a time to find what divides us" and put it aside, he said.
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders, meanwhile, choked up when describing the heroism of concert-goers who used their bodies to shield others.
Sunday's death toll has surpassed that of the last major US shooting, which occurred previous year when 49 people were killed by a gunman who was inspired by the Islamic State group. "In essence, we will leave the status quo in place", he said.

Yingluck sentencing: The downfall of Thailand's Shinawatra family
Proponents of the military government defended the ruling against critics who said it was politically motivated. The Supreme Court said Yingluck Shinawatra was knowing of the falsified rice deals but did nothing to stop it.
Trump, who ran his campaign against any gun control laws, did not mention it in his two remarks on Monday during which he said that this is "a very very sad" day for him.
"The fact (is), we've got a deteriorating national security environment", federal justice minister Michael Keenan said when announcing the amnesty in June.
Democrats wondered, however, whether the Las Vegas attack would change any minds on Capitol Hill. "We are not going to knee-jerk react to every situation", he said.
Although gun violence is one of the leading causes of death in America, it is also one of the most poorly researched, according to a January 2017 study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
Democratic reformers also believe that the enormous power of the NRA - with its intimidating political and fundraising muscle - is a bulwark against action.
But America has been having the conversation for years.
The shrinking middle of American politics makes gun reforms even more uncomplicated. They do not believe the mad actions of someone who commits a massacre should infringe their constitutional rights or capacity for self defense.
America also has the highest homicide-by-firearm rate among the world's most developed nations. By the 2016 election, the gap between Trump and Clinton supporters on the same question had jumped to 70%. The background checks need to be expanded on guns purchased in gun shows and over the internet while people with mental health issues should not have access to guns. Joe Manchin of West Virginia doing just that could not pass the Senate in 2013 in the wake of Sandy Hook. The state does not require licenses, registration or a waiting period for firearms, including semi-automatic rifles. Police inspect guns once a year.
"I mean, I heard the recording on the television: That was a fully automatic machine gun he was using, which is illegal", said Rep. Trent Franks, R-Ariz. I thought Columbine would. But this is only a first step, she said. "None of that did".
