NRA Wants Federal Review of 'Bump Stock' Rifle Device

NRA Wants Federal Review of 'Bump Stock' Rifle Device”

We know that Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock assembled a small arsenal in room 32135 of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, where investigators found 23 weapons, including multiple rifles and a handgun.

Democratic Rep. John Lewis of Georgia said at the rally that thoughts and prayers were not enough. "The nation is counting on you". Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., introduced legislation that would ban the manufacture or possession of accessories that accelerate a semi-automatic rifle's rate of fire to that of an automatic weapon.

"But when an American buys a gun and kills other Americans then there's nothing we can do about that [because of] the second amendment, I guess".

A Republican-led bill that would outlaw gun stocks is expected by close of business on Thursday.

Cornyn said as a hunter and sportsman he doesn't understand the use of the bump stock and wants to have a hearing on it. "He sets the tone, he sets the agenda, and I think that question makes no sense because of that".

The congressional inaction underscored the power of the National Rifle Association and the political stakes for lawmakers who maintain their support for the constitutional right to bear arms and fear any challenge to their fealty.

The White House has not ruled out the possibility Trump might return to Las Vegas for a vigil or memorial service. "We're not going to talk about that today". 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. She said she was surprised at how nice the president was-a far different picture from what she was shown on social media.

President Donald Trump is reckoning with the aftermath of a deadly mass shooting in Las Vegas when he visits the city on Wednesday.

Asked about the shooter, Trump said "yeah, they're learning a lot more". Manchin said, adding that any movement on the issue will depend on Trump. "The president is the leader of the Cabinet".

"If he is true to what he has said earlier, he could be a huge ally", said Sen.

It's possible Paddock took the semi-automatic weapons he was known to have bought legally and used special tools to convert them to automatic weapons, Rabadi said.

"The example of those whose final act was to sacrifice themselves for those they love should inspire all of us to show more love every day for the people who grace our lives", Trump said. "We'll be looking into that over the next short period of time", he said.
