'Bump stocks' ban bill receives bipartisan support
Fully automatic weapons have been banned in the USA since 1986, but there are permissable attachments that allow legal guns to fire the same clip with one pull, enabling gun enthusiasts like Paddock to soup up their weapons and to cause such carnage.
The device transforms a semi-automatic rifle into a weapon which can fire hundreds of rounds a minute and was used by gunman Stephen Paddock when he killed 58 people in the deadliest mass shooting in modern United States history.
Jill Snyder, special agent at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, said Tuesday that the gunman in Las Vegas rigged 12 semi-automatic rifles with bump stocks.
"It just basically takes money and perseverance to acquire a machine gun because there's a lot of demand", Barrett says. Founded in 1846, AP has covered all the major news events of the past 165 years, providing high-quality, informed reporting of everything from wars and elections to championship games and royal weddings.
Stephen Paddock, 64, of Mesquite, Nevada, shot at a crowd of concert-goers late Sunday night from his room on the 34th floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel on the Las Vegas strip.
CURBELO: I don't know exactly what parameters he's going to put in place for consideration of this legislation or legislation of this nature.
The bill, titled the Automatic Gunfire Prevention Act, would go into effect 180 days after its passage. It is the Republicans who refuse to allow any common-sense legislation to limit the type and size of guns.
As Congressional Democrats proposed a legislative ban on bump stocks, members of the Republican majority say they may be amenable. "This is taking it into war." Sen.
Bump stocks can make semiautomatic rifles fire like automatic weapons. He said he had five on his shelf that were "sitting there collecting dust" for months and he sold four of them on Wednesday. "There's a reason for that, and I'd want to make sure that nobody has access to that, if that's the law of the land". David Perdue (R-Ga.) said. It was created ostensibly to help people with disabilities more easily fire AK- and AR-platform long guns. "And I want to make sure that nobody has access to that if that's the law of the land". "I don't know what (Paddock's) mental state was but I do take solace in the fact that we've been working on addressing these mental health issues more comprehensively and I'm glad we passed the law we passed", Speaker Paul Ryansaid on the Dan O'Donnell Show, a conservative radio program, Wednesday morning.
Feinstein said the bill was a product of months of negotiations, compromises, and one-on-one meetings with wobbling senators.
The announcements could give cover to Republican lawmakers, many of whom receive campaign finance support from the hugely influential gun lobby, to back current legislation that would ban the sale or possession of such devices. "What we saw was an automatic weapon being used", Feinstein said.
But many gun owners don't see new regulations as the right reaction.
A bump stock device that fits on a semi-automatic rifle to increase the firing speed, making it similar to a fully automatic rifle, is installed on a AK-47 semi-automatic rifle, (right) at a gun store on October 5, 2017 in Salt Lake City, Utah.
To use the bump stock device, a shooter must apply constant forward pressure with the non-shooting hand and constant rearward pressure with the shooting hand, according to the ATF.
"When you called, I was on the phone with a welder, one of my regular customers, who had tears in his eyes", Brandenburg said.
"A friend and I were out shooting one day and we weren't able to fire as fast as we wanted", Jeremiah Cottle told The Albany News in 2011. "You have to say that enough is enough", Feinstein said in a press conference where Democrats unveiled the legislation.
"Why can't we stop this?" she asked. "Why can't we keep a weapon from becoming a military-grade weapon?" "I have to fight".
