– This is the script of CNBC's news report for China's CCTV on June 13, Monday.
Welcome to CNBC Business Daily, I'm Qian Chen.
Law enforcement was extra-watchful at theme parks Sunday after a mass shooting at an Orlando nightclub, and tourism experts expect tighter security and fewer visitors in the tragedy's wake.
The Pulse nightclub where 50 people were killed and even more were seriously injured early Sunday morning is miles away from tourist attractions.
Still, for many people who don't live here, Orlando is synonymous with Walt Disney World.
President Barack Obama said Sunday afternoon that the massacre is "a further reminder of how easy it is for someone to get their hands on a weapon that lets them shoot people in a school or in a house of worship or a movie theater or in a nightclub."
Presidential candidates and politicians from across the political spectrum Sunday denounced the worst mass shooting ever executed on U.S. soil that left at least 50 people dead on Sunday, joining President Barack Obama in expressing both shock and outrage.
Now, the controversy is ... Mateen had security and firearm licenses and the gunman's weapons were legally purchased within the past week.
[MICHAEL TABMAN, SPIRIT Asset Protection, LLC] "Nothing he had done would make him being denied access to a weapon. Simply being interviewed by the FBI just does not disqualify someone from buying a weapon. And if it isnt, many many more people wouldnt be able to get it, wether they were criminals, potential criminals, or people who being interviewed for furthur information."
This April saw the most gun-related background checks of any April on record, making it the 12th month in a row to achieve a high water mark for gun sales.
The FBI ran 2,145,865 checks through the National Instant Background Check System last month, according to the agency's records.
That represents more than a 400,000 increase over the previous record set in April 2014.
The number of background checks is considered a reliable barometer for gun sales as nearly all sales made through licensed firearms dealers must by law include such a check. Some states also require a background check for gun sales between private citizens.
[MICHAEL TABMAN, SPIRIT Asset Protection, LLC] "I always believe that I think we can tighten gun controls to specipic weapons and high-capacity tools that mass murder, without offending anybody's second amendement rights. I do believe we can do that in a logical a nd constitutional way."
The attack sparked a broad online debate, with political figures drawing familiar battle lines on gun control and terrorism.
