Las Vegas shooting: Republicans open to ban on 'bump-stocks'

"And I'm an avid sportsman", Ryan said.

"I think they should be banned".

Rep. Vern Buchanan (R-FL) on Thursday said that bump stocks, devices that make semi-automatic guns behave like fully automatic weapons, should face the "same restrictions" as the latter. "Apparently this allows you to take a semi-automatic and turn it into a fully automatic so clearly that's something that we need to look into". "If we can take this first step perhaps we can also look at other policies that both strengthen the Second Amendment", Curbelo said.

TODAY'S TMJ4 reached out to 10 area shops Thursday, and none actually carry the bump stocks, the device used in the Vegas mass shooting.

President Trump claims Senator Corker "begged" for endorsement — Twitter battle

Audio of the attack on the Route 91 Harvest musical festival in Las Vegas contained rapid fire bursts into the crowd.

Florida Congressman Carlos Curbelo (R) told FOX Business' Stuart Varney that most members of Congress understand that bump stocks are flagrant and circumventions of current law. Fifty-eight people were killed and hundreds were shot or injured in the stampede to escape.

Wisconsin Democrats have introduced a proposal to ban bump stocks, and local gun shops are getting calls.

The devices, known as "bump stocks" among other names, are legal and originally were meant to help people with limited hand mobility fire a semi-automatic without the individual trigger pulls required. Several "bump stocks" were found on other firearms from Paddock's room, investigators said.

Mr Shapps said he was yet to write to the committee himself but would now take the formal steps. They want assurances Labour will honour deals made with the Conservatives, the Telegraph said.

The government gave its seal of approval to selling the devices in 2010 after concluding that they did not violate federal law.

Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, said Wednesday he is open to seeing if "it's something Congress needs to act on", according to The New York Times.

"Paul Ryan and Washington's establishment Republicans, catering to drug companies and special interests", says a narrator, as a smiling Ryan is seen working with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.). "The investigation into the Las Vegas shooting is still ongoing, and we need to get more information before making a decision on a hearing and what it might cover", said Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley of Iowa.
