WASHINGTON - US President Donald Trump said Tuesday that it was not the time for a political debate on gun control in the wake of the mass shooting in Las Vegas that killed 59 people and injured more than 500 others.

Asked during his return from touring hurricane damage in Puerto Rico whether such a debate would come at some point in time, Trump responded, "Perhaps that will come," but added that it was "not for now."
