President Trump Directs Justice Department to Ban Bump Stocks

February 20, 2018  | 

President Donald Trump said Tuesday that he has signed a memo directing the Justice Department to propose regulations to "ban all devices" like the rapid-fire bump stocks involved in last year's Las Vegas massacre, reports the Associated Press.

Seeking to show action days after a deadly school shooting in Parkland, Florida, Trump spoke during a White House ceremony recognizing bravery by the nation's public safety officers.

"We must move past clichés and tired debates and focus on evidence based solutions and security measures that actually work," Trump said.

I must admit that before the Las Vegas shooting by Paddock I didn't even know about bumpstocks and from what I now understand he had so many rifles because of the fact that they make the rifle so hot that they will jam after a number of rounds. As far as bumpstocks go I have no problem with their ban as long as it is ONLY bumpstocks.
