How a bump stock modifies a semi-automatic firearm

Range 702 is one of almost a dozen shooting ranges doing business along Las Vegas Boulevard.

In total, law enforcement found 42 firearms that belonged to the perpetrator of the massacre at Las Vegas (Nevada).

The organization which holds a powerful sway over members of Congress dismissed some of the initial response from lawmakers who have pressed for more gun control.

That came as more and more Republicans in the Congress said they were open to the idea of doing something about 'bump stocks'. "We saw the goal this weekend".

The NRA is typically the nation's most prominent lobbyist group against stricter gun regulations. "It remains a semi-automatic firearm, it doesn't change the nature of how the gun works mechanically", Morrison said. "We won't talk about that".

"I have no problem from banning myself from owning it".

When clicking on a bump stock that was formerly available on Walmart's online retail site, an error page populates, which reads, "We're having technical difficulties and are looking into the problem now".

"If you are attempting to controlling coyotes, you might use one caliber rifle, if you were trying to control an explosion of prairie dogs on your farm, it would be another type", he said.

He waved off questions about the availability of firearms - the gunman had a huge arsenal of weapons - saying this is not the time to discuss the possibility of further restrictions.

Sheriff Joseph Lombardo says investigators are hoping to get some insight from Marilou Danley on why her boyfriend Stephen Paddock opened fire on a concert crowd from a high-rise hotel room. "None of this makes sense to any of us". "I think that's our right as Americans, but I don't understand the use of this bump stock and that's another reason to have a hearing", Senator John Cornyn, the No 2 Republican in the Senate, told reporters.

"I was a fan before this - you know that, everyone in this room knows that, a big fan before this". "It reflects poorly on something we find enjoyable".

"They do sell a little bit, but it's very minimal", said C.J. Calesa, an employee at Birmingham Pistol Wholesale in Trustville, Alabama.

"It's evident that action must be taken with regard to devices that modify semi-automatic weapons like bump stocks", said Rep. Kevin Yoder (R-KS). "In the meantime, my colleagues and I will consider legislative options, because these fully-automatic simulator devices have no place in civil society".

While the stocks allow a gun to quickly spray bullets, gun experts say they also create such a jolt that accuracy is affected. "It's just feel-good stuff. We are going to get there".
