Las Vegas shooting: Mother and son caught up in horror of massacre continue to oppose gun control

Las Vegas shooting: Mother and son caught up in horror of massacre continue to oppose gun controlA mother and son hailed as heroes for saving the lives of people wounded in the Las Vegas shooting have spoken out against gun control, saying it could not have prevented the massacre. Owen Searcy and Dana Rushing were backed by a senior US firearms lobbyist who claimed the futility of strict gun laws was ‘proved’ by their failure to stop IRA terrorists smuggling rifles into the UK. Mr Searcy, 32, and Ms Rushing, 57, a nurse, were praised for saving lives by shepherding fellow country music fans to shelter and giving first aid after Stephen Paddock opened fire, killing at least 59 people.
