Retailers pull bump stocks from online stores

Retailers pull bump stocks from online stores”

Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom drove Proposition 63 a year ago strengthening the state's gun control measures. Chuck Grassley, the chairman of the Senate judiciary committee.

Those are the devices that attach to rifles to mimic automatic weapon fire and that were used by gunman Stephen Paddock during Sunday's attack.

"Mr. and Mrs. America, you have to stand up". "There are so many lawfully used firearms in the USA that are never used in crimes". Feinstein said she was reaching out to Republicans, and the president, for support.

How hard is it to get an automatic weapon? "To me, that is part of that same type of process".

"I have no problem banning those", he said. It's not enough to just limit the kind of people who own guns.

This action allows bump stocks to replicate the speed of a fully automatic rifle, but because the motion involves essentially shaking the whole firearm they dramatically reduce accuracy.

The delegation's Democrats have been the most outspoken in backing the legislative drive to prohibit the device, which accelerates the rate of fire of semi-automatic weapons. Dianne Feinstein (D-California) asked. "I think that would be a good idea". That's just, it's one of those misses in life. Probably, but no one, not one of us, knows what it is.

In the wake of the killing there have been renewed calls for greater gun controls to prevent the ownership of dozens of weapons, some of which can be legally modified to be as effective and unsafe as a fully-functioning assault rifle.

The bump stock devices blur this distinction by using the weapon's own kickback to "bounce" the gun back and forth against the shooter's shoulder, while stabilizing their finger against the trigger to achieve multiple trigger pulls in rapid succession. "I apologize, but I do not know". "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". Orrin Hatch, R-Utah. "I'm concerned about it, I'll put it that way".

"I own a AR-15 but I don't own a bump stock". Firing a weapon using a bump stock involves using the power of the recoil when shooting. "It's definitely something that should be looked at", Heitkamp said.

Most members of Congress had never even heard of them before this week.

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.

Yet, it drew a firm line on gun accessories like the bump stock, asking the administration to revisit a 2010 ATF ruling - made during the Obama administration - that allowed the sale of such accessories. "It appears very troubling that the (bump stock) can be purchased so easily and used to massively increase the firepower of a rifle", said Sen.

The Senate's No. 2 Republican, Sen. Bad people are going to do bad things and find ways to get it. "That's what we ought to do".

Your local police chief also probably agrees with the majority of voters who support a ban on the assault-style weapons that were used in Las Vegas to kill and maim so many people in such a short time. Groups like hers that support stronger gun control won a victory last fall when a ballot measure calling for background checks narrowly passed, largely thanks to support of voters in Las Vegas. But Natalie Hernandez thinks that after this massacre the conversation on gun control will start to shift even in Nevada. "None", said Republican Sen.

The statement was issued as lawmakers consider the possibility of banning the devices. "I haven't looked at it, but I'm skeptical".

Despite widespread support for such common-sense measures, nearly every Republican in Washington still cowers in the corner when it is time to engage in a real and meaningful gun safety debate.

Newsweek reviewed the online stores of at least six gun retailers whose stock of the device were sold out.
