Sen. Dianne FeinsteinDianne Emiel FeinsteinDHS chief takes heat over Trump furor NSA spying program overcomes key Senate hurdle Democrats will need to explain if they shut government down over illegal immigration MORE (D-Calif.) said Wednesday that her daughter had planned to attend the country music festival in Las Vegas over the weekend where a gunman killed nearly 60 people.

Feinstein said that her daughter made plans to attend the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival on the Las Vegas Strip with neighbors but canceled the plans at the last minute.

"It's just one of those misses in life. Could happen to any one of us," she said at a press conference.

"My own daughter was going to go. I have an email from her — she was going to go with neighbors," Feinstein said.

She said her daughter planned to stay in the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, the same hotel from which the shooter opened fire on concertgoers through a window.

"They were going to stay at that hotel, that's how close it came to me," she said. 

Feinstein and other Democratic senators on Wednesday pushed for new legislation banning gun accessories such as "bump stocks," which modify semi-automatic weapons to shoot more rapidly. 

Several of the devices were in the hotel room with the shooter's guns.

The shooter killed 58 people and wounded more than 500 more in what is now considered the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.
