Should Bump Stock Modifications on Guns be Allowed?

Should Bump Stock Modifications on Guns be Allowed?

The National Rifle Association released a statement saying it supports additional bump stock regulations, and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan said Congress will at least look into hearing a ban of the device.

That's the device the Las Vegas gunman used which allows semi-automatic weapons to fire nearly like an automatic.

The killer in Las Vegas apparently used the legal bump stock devices on legal rifles, essentially converting them into automatic weapons, which are banned.

Moments after, at the White House, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders praised the announcement. "I do expect prices to go up from outside pressure", said Parker.

According to The New York Times, the Las Vegas gunman had twelve rifles outfitted with bump stocks in his hotel room where he opened fire on a crowd of roughly 20,000 concert goers below.

Bump stocks are legal gun modifications which make legal semi-automatic guns fire nearly like illegal automatic weapons.

"A little spring mechanism that actually takes the action of the gun and bounces it back and forth using the recoil, so your finger stays in place and basically the gun is moving, bouncing your finger off the trigger", said Joshua Cummins at the Elite Armory gun shop in Castro Valley.

For most people, trigger modifications or bump stocks are means to fire faster for fun. But the NRA said it was calling to "immediately review whether these devices comply with federal law".

Floor time is limited and seriously considering any gun bill - even one as specific as legislation on firearm accessories - could unleash a lengthy, politically fraught battle with Democrats and Republicans retreating to their respective corners.

Flores formerly led the Republican Study Committee and is a gun-owner but said he could not support bump stocks after conducting research on the device.

At Top Guns, as they have seen more people coming in to buy rifles, they have also seen more people come in for their gun classes as well.

Several Republican politicians have spoken out, wanting either regulations or legislation to be enacted to stop the sale of bump stocks. "I don't know of anybody who really wants them", he says.

Mitchell added that since President Trump has been in office, overall gun sales have flatlined because the driving force of fear that the government will ban certain guns is now gone under the new Republican administration.

This gun supporter believes it's a "people problem, not gun problem".
