The N-R-A says “bump stock” devices the Las Vegas shooter used to turn rifles into fully automatic weapons should be “subject to additional regulations” — but Senator Al Franken says they should be outlawed altogether. Franken says, “There’s no reason for there being ways, exceptions for people getting these. They should be outlawed. They shouldn’t be manufactured. They should be taken off the market.”
House Speaker Paul Ryan from neighboring Wisconsin now says Congress must consider whether “bump stocks” should be legal. But Andrew Rothman with the Minnesota Gun Owners Civil Rights Alliance contends there’s no indication they increased the death toll in Las Vegas.
