White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders rebuked reporters on Monday after she was asked about changes to gun safety laws in the wake of the recent massacre in Las Vegas.

"Look, this is an unspeakable tragedy," Sanders told the press corps at Monday's briefing. "Today is a day for consoling of survivors and mourning those we lost. Our thoughts and prayers are certainly with all those individuals. There's a time and place for political debate. But now is the time to unite as a country."

"It would be premature for us to discuss policy when we don't know all the facts or what took place last night," she added.
