NRA calls for more regulation after Vegas shooting

He said he had never heard of the device before this week.

CEO Wayne LaPierre ripped critics calling for gun control after the massacre in Las Vegas on Sunday, calling them hypocritical. This distinction is a key one, as it makes bump fire stocks arguably legal under existing federal statute.

Automatic weapons have been largely illegal for decades, but bump stock devices offer a way around that.

Jeremy Sternisha, with The Armories Gun Shop in Oviedo, said bump stocks have not been a popular item in the past.

"I've never seen one up close or ever looked them up online", said Wallace, the head of the MA affiliate of the National Rifle Association. "I just had no idea that that was possible".

And the idea is getting bipartisan support from Democrats Rick Nolan and Collin Peterson, and Republican Erik Paulsen.

What is a bump stock? It can reportedly allow a gun to shoot hundred of rounds per minute.

Separately, West Virginia Democratic Sen.

A handful of Republicans made headlines for supporting the idea of such a ban in the hours after California Sen.

Referring to November 27, 1978, she said: "I have found, as you all know, somebody shot to death who was a colleague of mine". Several, including House Speaker Paul Ryan, have said this week that they want to look into bump stocks and consider restrictions on them.

But with applied pressure, they can cause the weapon to fire continuously.

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 believe we had good gun laws prior to that".

"Fully-automatic weapons have been illegal in the US for the last 30 years, but recent technology has made it easier to legally simulate a fully-automatic weapon", Davis said in a statement. "Apparently this allows you to take a semi-automatic, turn it into a fully automatic, so clearly that's something that we need to look into".

"We need to determine what happened in 2010 when the Obama administration approved those, the why, the what, what was the process they were going through to do the approval", Lankford said.

But a congressional gun debate is far from something that Republicans could tackle easily right now. On Thursday, the NRA called on the ATF to review that assessment.

On Tuesday, searches on Google shopping and WalMart's website resulted in a number of bump stocks for sale.

"It's premature to be discussing legislative solutions, if there are any", Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday. However, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives ruled that bump stocks are not subject to these laws Bump stocks don't alter the mechanics behind how a gun fires, which is what matters under federal law, according to the ATF.

Slightly modified search terms do bring up the devices, indicating Google is likely specifically blocking search results for "bump stock", web programmer and blogger Scott Hanselman told the NewsHour in an email. "I apologize but I do not know", Corker said earlier this week. "So I don't have a response today".
