Recognize the need for gun law reform

Recognize the need for gun law reform”

Thursday, the National Rifle Association released an unexpected statement calling for the ATF to re-evaluate whether bump stocks should be legal, even going so far as to say, "devices created to allow semi-automatic rifles to function like fully-automatic rifles should be subject to additional regulations".

Police found 23 guns in Stephen Paddock's hotel room including semi-automatic rifles and hundreds of rounds of ammunition.

The NRA's statement still claims banning firearms won't stop mass shootings but says "devices created to allow semi-automatic rifles to function like fully-automatic rifles should be subject to additional regulations".

Shortly after the news of the Las Vegas shooting spread, many people with gun experience have noticed the unusual firing rate, which seemed to be sometimes slower and sometimes faster.

"I do think there would be bipartisan support coming together to pass a bill to make it illegal to sell those because you can buy them now", Pelosi said Wednesday. "There are some accessories that are available on the market, such as a bump fire stock or a slide fire". The state's laws also allow the purchase of machine guns and silencers as long as federal regulations are met.

The comments from the White House came a few minutes after top NRA official Chris Cox put out a statement, indicating that the gun rights group was open to some modficiation of how bump stocks are treated under federal law.

But what is a bump stock? "If we can all work together one time just to save the people in America, in these situations, we've done our job. That is an accessory that can be used to modify a weapon like an AR-15 to allow it to fire in rapid succession or automatic fire".

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in response, "We welcome that and a conversation on that".

Growing up in a small town in Iowa, I know guns are a way of life in the small town culture.

Some other Republicans, including Utah Senator Orrin Hatch, said they were willing to at least examine Feinstein's bill on bump stock devices.

John Harris, executive director of the Tennessee Firearms Association, challenges any regulations that dictate how rapidly a gun can be fired.

President Donald Trump had discussed the issue with lawmakers on the way back from visiting Las Vegas on Wednesday, according to Rep. Mark Amodei, R-Nevada, who traveled with the president aboard Air Force One.
