In this Oct. 4, 2017, photo, a device called a "bump stock" is attached to a semi-automatic rifle at the Gun Vault store and shooting range in South Jordan, Utah.  The slaying of five dozen people at a Las Vegas music festival did little to change American opinion about the nation’s gun laws, and the country is divided over whether restricting firearms would reduce the number of such mass shootings or homicides, according to a new poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.

This image provided by Chris Allen shows the view in Havana, Cuba, from his hotel room - room 1414 - at Hotel Capri in April 2014. Allen’s phone started buzzing as word broke of invisible attacks hitting a U.S. government worker at Havana’s Hotel Capri. Allen’s friends and family had heard an eerily similar story from him before. The tourist from South Carolina had cut short his trip to Cuba two years earlier after numbness spread through all four of his limbs, just minutes after he climbed into bed at the same hotel. Those weren’t the only parallels in Allen’s recounting, which put him in a growing list of Americans with no government connections, asking the same alarming but unanswerable question: Were we victims, too?
