After the chilling scenes coming out of Las Vegas, Nevada the debate on gun control continues.

At last count, 58 are dead and over 500 people injured after the massacre on the Las Vegas strip. This has renewed calls for gun control.

Missouri and Iowa gun laws are both strikingly similar to those in Nevada. There are no requirements preventing someone from buying rifles, like the 19 reportedly found in the Mandalay Bay Hotel room.

A gun buyer can receive a permit to purchase a firearm in as little as three days as long as they don't have a criminal record and aren't deemed mentally unstable.

Both Missouri and Iowa laws are slightly tighter in regards to hand guns.

This is the deadliest mass shooting on record, the second in a little over a year after the Pulse Night Club shooting in Orlando.
