(CNN)We've reached the end of an extremely difficult week. Hopefully, you'll get to spend some of the weekend with the ones you love. Now, here's what you need to know to Get Up to Speed and Out the Door. (You can also get "5 Things You Need to Know Today" delivered to your inbox daily. Sign up here.)

1. Las Vegas shooting

    One national gun control measure may actually pass after the worst mass shooting in modern American history. The White House, Dems, GOPers in Congress -- and even the NRA -- say they're on board to do something about bump-fire stocks. These devices, now legal, allow semi-automatic weapons to simulate automatic weapon fire. Bump stocks were on 12 of the 23 weapons found in the Las Vegas shooter's hotel room. CNN's Chris Cillizza says the NRA's support is a ploy to stop more gun control measures before they start.
    And there is still no sign of Stephen Paddock's motive for indiscriminately shooting at thousands of people at a country music festival, killing 58. But we have learned a few other things. One, he was shooting at more than just people; he also fired on a fuel tank at the nearby McCarran International Airport. Authorities say there was "zero" chance of an explosion. Secondly, someone named Stephen Paddock reserved a room at a Chicago hotel overlooking Grant Park during Lollapalooza back in August, but no one ever checked in.
    Read an in-depth account of the shooting from CNN's Mallory Simon of 10 Las Vegas survivors and their six hours of hell.

    2. Iran nuclear deal

    So, President Trump intends to decertify the Iran nuke deal, but what exactly does that mean? It doesn't mean Trump is just scrapping the deal, which he constantly blasted on the campaign trial. Trump is expected to say the Obama-era pact is not in the US interest and that Iran hasn't "lived up" to its spirit, triggering a 60-day review by Congress. CNN's Stephen Collinson says decertification allows the President to save face, dent Barack Obama's legacy and leave the pact's fate (and the political fury over possibly pulling out of it) in Congress' hands. Critics say Trump is putting US national security at risk for purely political purposes.

    3. Tropical Storm Nate

    Tropical Storm Nate is headed to Mexico after killing 22 people in Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Honduras. The storm will make another landfall on Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula before hitting open sea again. Nate is then expected to get stronger and hit late Saturday or early Sunday somewhere along the Gulf Coast -- possibly New Orleans, where the drainage pumping system isn't at full strength -- as a Category 1 hurricane.

    4. Russia probe

    Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigators met this past summer with the former British spy whose dossier on alleged Russian efforts to aid the Trump campaign spawned months of investigations that have hobbled the Trump administration, according to two people familiar with the matter.
    Information from Christopher Steele, a former MI-6 officer, could help investigators determine whether contacts between people associated with the Trump campaign and suspected Russian operatives broke any laws.
    CNN has learned that the FBI and the US intelligence community last year took the Steele dossier more seriously than the agencies have publicly acknowledged. James Clapper, then the director of national intelligence, said in a January statement that the intelligence community had "not made any judgment that the information in this document is reliable."

    5. Spain

    Leaders in the Catalonia region wanted to declare independence next week, but Spain's highest court says not so fast. The country's Constitutional Court suspended a meeting of Catalonia's regional parliament set for Monday, where the region's president was expected to formally make the declaration. Voters in Catalonia overwhelming OK'd a referendum on independence almost a week ago (despite violent clashes with police). But Spain's government says the vote was illegal. It's not clear at this point if the Catalan parliament will still meet, in defiance of the court's action.
