Both Sides - And The NRA - Considering Bump Stock Ban

06 October 2017

A bump stock is a device that can be attached to a semi-automatic rifle and, in essence, allow it to be fired at speeds approaching a fully automatic machine gun.

The debate on banning bump stocks is taking place on Capitol Hill.

On Thursday, an unexpected statement from the NRA calling for additional regulations and now gun shops across the country are seeing bump stocks flying off the shelves.

Said the NRA: "Banning guns from law-abiding Americans based on the criminal act of a madman will do nothing to prevent future attacks". "Cars weren't put on the market to run people over, but they do if misused", Van Cleave added. Police found a total of 47 guns in the hotel room and house of 64-year-old, who rained down a barrage of bullets from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel towards an open-air concert.

Feinstein has introduced gun control legislation in the past but does not appear to have the support of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who said it was "particularly inappropriate to politicize" the shooting.

A Closer Look at the NRA's Cleverly Worded Statement on Bump Stocks
As the gunshots rained down, many perceived the sounds they heard to be automatic machine-gun fire. Traditionally, semiautomatic and automatic weapons are supposed to function very differently.

The devices were approved by the Obama administration's Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) in 2010, but the NRA is now asking for that decision to be reviewed.

The stock uses the recoil action of the firearm to slide the weapon back and forth allowing it to fire rapidly, but escapes the state's ban on automatic weapons because the user's finger technically remains on the trigger, pulling to initiate each shot.

"It's clearly something we need to look into", Ryan said in an interview with CNN.

Bump stocks can be purchased and retrofitted onto weapons, commonly for less than $500 each.

Asked in a press conference on Thursday about momentum for a bump stock ban, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that the White House would "welcome that".

"I definitely think we need to revisit the issue of gun safety", Curbelo told NPR.

"Look, that should be outlawed", the governor said.

Feinstein, a prominent advocate for gun control, already has legislation to ban bump stocks.

It essentially fires more rounds from a semi-automatic weapon - making it automatic.

He said there is a lot of red tape if someone would want a fully automatic weapon, and the bump stock is away to cheat that.
