"That should be outlawed, and if that were to pass tomorrow we would sign it", Baker told reporters.

"Massachusetts has some of the strictest and best gun law [s] in the country; they have been passed almost always on a bipartisan basis here", he said.

House Minority Leader Brad Jones, a North Reading Republican, said the state already has the "strictest gun laws in the nation" and a bump stock ban would "close a significant loophole" spotlighted by the massacre in Las Vegas.

Bump stocks are devices that can give a semi-automatic rifle near fully automatic shooting speeds and are believed to have been used by the Las Vegas shooter.

Federal authorities have said 12 bump stocks were found in the Mandalay Bay hotel room from which the shooter took aim at a crowd attending a country music festival over the weekend, killing 58 people and injuring nearly 500 more.

The Gun Owners Action League, a MA group linked to the National Rifle Association, has not formally weighed in with a stance on legislation, though they did post to Twitter the NRA's statement on gun stocks. "Despite the fact that the Obama administration approved the sale of bump-fire stocks on at least two occasions, the NRA is calling on the BATFE to immediately review whether these devices comply with federal law. In an increasingly unsafe world, the NRA remains focused on our mission: strengthening Americans' Second Amendment freedom to defend themselves, their families, and their communities".

Linsky said the bill will also eliminate a grandfather clause that allows for large-capacity magazines as long as they were manufactured before 1994.
