NRA calls for federal review of bump stocks after Vegas shooting

How Did Las Vegas Shooter Achieved Such Rapid Fire Without Illegal Automatic Weapon?

How Did Las Vegas Shooter Achieved Such Rapid Fire Without Illegal Automatic Weapon?

Make no mistake: This move on bump stocks is an attempt by the NRA to stop a broad public debate on guns before it really begins in earnest.

Bump stocks, also called "bump fire stocks", use the weapon's own recoil to push the trigger against the operator's finger.

Both were found inside Stephen Paddock's suite at the Mandalay Bay hotel on Sunday along with a stash of other weapons and accessories which he used to slaughter 58 people and injure 489 at the Route 91 Harvest Festival.

"The NRA believes that devices created to allow semi-automatic rifles to function like fully-automatic rifles should be subject to additional regulation", NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre and Executive Director Chris Cox said in a statement. They've got a bill written already.

At the White House, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the President would be open to listening to any ideas, but she cautioned against any "rash decisions" on gun restrictions, arguing it is still time to focus on the victims of the Vegas attack, which killed almost 60 and resulted in injuries to nearly 500 people.

Gardiner said that with more than 90 percent of Americans supporting enhanced background checks for gun sales, those who resist stricter regulations on firearms face being "on the wrong side of history".

The Trump White House, Republican lawmakers and America's most powerful gun rights organization are signaling willingness to discuss restricting a weapons accessory known as bump fire stocks. Mr. Schumer asked on the Senate floor.

In an interview with MSNBC Thursday, House Speaker Paul Ryan said it's "clearly that's something we need to look into".

A number of Republican senators, including the Judiciary Committee chairman, are expressing interest in convening hearings on the issue.

"I think they should be banned", said Rep. Bill Flores (R-TX), as his home state colleague, Sen. The devices enable semi-automatic rifles to mimic automatic weapons, allowing more rapid fire. "Unfortunately, a couple of those guns were used in that hotel room".

What turned the millionaire real estate developer and high-stakes gambler into a mass murderer remained a mystery. He said, "There's no reason for a typical gun owner to own anything that converts a semiautomatic to something that behaves like an automatic".

But the California Democrat said her daughter's plans changed and she didn't go. He said that meeting with the patients at one hospital made him "proud to be an American". "Maybe he's a super guy, maybe he was working out all this on his own, but it would be hard for me to believe that". "For example, I want to get a Porsche knowing that the speed limit is 65 or 70 miles per hour, and I want that vehicle to go 150, 180, 220, 225, even though it's not legal for me to do that". The bill has since garnered 26 Democratic co-sponsors.

The second disgusting bill proposed by the NRA is one that would allow people to carry concealed weapons in any state if it is allowed in the state where they live.

NRA leaders stressed the organization's commitment to expanding gun rights.

"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", said the statement, which then called on Congress to pass a bill that would force states to recognize concealed-carry permits issued by others states, even if the state itself does not issue concealed-carry permits.

Day said if Jenkins, Yoder or others in Congress wanted to save lives, they should support a federal law allowing national reciprocity of conceal-gun permits so owners of firearms could better defend themselves.

Brace yourselves. The gun grabbers are stoked by the carnage in Las Vegas.
