Las Vegas police found nearly two dozen guns in suspected shooter Stephen Paddock’s hotel room. Now, officials from the Hotel Association of Washington, D.C. say that owners and managers may consider further screenings if they encounter bags long enough to hold rifle cases, for example. Meanwhile, George Washington University Hospital, a level one trauma center, continues to push for a new helipad on top of its building to ensure that patients would get quick access to care should a mass casualty event like this one occur in D.C.
