NRA open to 'bump stock' regulation

07 October 2017

The New York Times273 Based on the definition that a mass shooting involves four or more people shot, the shooting in Las Vegas is the 273rd of the year.

Gun manufacturers' stocks rose Monday morning just hours after Las Vegas saw the deadliest mass shooting in modern USA history. Las Vegas police's Joe Lombardo also said that police uncovered explosives and 1,000s of rounds of ammunition at Paddock's home.

That came as more and more Republicans in the Congress said they were open to the idea of doing something about 'bump stocks'.

"I've been searching in myself to see if I've missed something along the way and I didn't", Sullivan said.

Aside from lawmakers pushing for legislation, since the shooting, Garcia said more customers have asked for weapons training.

They're also 9-3 against the spread in their last 12 games despite failing to cover in three of their first four games. Prior to that kick, Folk missed kicks of 56 and 49 yards - neither of which are exactly guarantees for anybody.

"I've never seen them fold this fast", said Prince.

Despite its rare endorsement of a gun device restriction, the NRA insisted in its statement that its goal firmly remained the protection and strengthening the Second Amendment right to bear arms.

"The sickening truth, of course, is that the NRA doesn't ever want us to discuss gun control, and they certainly don't want THEIR President discussing it".

Gun owners can achieve a similar, though less controlled effect by sticking their finger through their belt loop or simply holding a stick between the trigger and the trigger guard.

Others, however, view measures such as stricter background checks as simply logical, in order to prevent those with a history of violence or mental illness from obtaining firearms.

Kershaw allowed four homers overall tonight, but he otherwise seemed to dominate with location and sharp breaking stuff. L.A. center fielder Chris Taylor led off the game with a single, which was followed by a Corey Seager walk.

The statement is out of character for the NRA, which is considered the country's most powerful gun lobbying group.

A gunman killing 20 elementary school students and six educators in CT in 2012 couldn't convince Congress to expand background checks on gun buyers. "I own a lot of guns and as a hunter and sportsman I think that's our right as Americans, but I don't understand the use of this bump stock and that's another reason to have a hearing".

Last year Cornyn and Feinstein tried to find common ground on legislation to keep suspected terrorists from buying firearms after a shooting in Orlando killed 49 people. But what happened in Las Vegas this week, she said, "is taking it into war".

The 64-year-old had planned the massacre so meticulously that he set up a camera in the peephole of his hotel room in an apparent attempt to spot anyone coming for him, investigators said.

And sure enough, Federal Bureau of Investigation statistics for 2012 show 678 people were murdered that year with "personal weapons" (hands, fists, and feet), 518 were killed with blunt objects (hammers would be in that group) while rifles (322) and shotguns (303) lagged behind.

His budget comment was a reference to the island's $ 74 billion public debt load and a decade-old economic recession. Trump has said Puerto Rico's debt is hindering its ability to recover after the hurricane.

The gunman's motive remains unknown, Sheriff Lombardo said.
