On the Topic of Gun Control and Safety

  • What are the gun laws in Las Vegas

It's already seen some opposition from gun lobby groups like Gun Owners of America, which said bump stocks should be available "to help gun owners with disabilities fire their weapons". While fully automatic weapons are under extremely tight ownership regulation in the United States, bump stocks are legal and widely available.

The "bump stock" is a detachable stock that uses the energy of the recoil of the weapon to print a movement of back-and-forth extremely fast with the gun, whose projectiles, recharge at the same rate.

Instead of calling for common-sense gun control, the NRA is only calling for action that makes strategic sense for the NRA.

The Las Vegas shooter used bump stocks to modify his semi automatic weapons.

Bump-stocks typically cost less than $200 (£150) and allow almost 100 high-velocity bullets to be fired in just seven seconds, according to one company advert. Unfortunately, the first response from some politicians has been to call for more gun control.

Reasonable restrictions like background checks, magazine limits and banning bump stocks are not the solution, but they are part of the solution.

"Devices created to allow semi-automatic rifles to function like fully-automatic rifles should be subject to additional regulations", the organization said in a statement. With a bump stock, a semi-automatic rifle can fire nine rounds a second, authorities say. Some Republicans in Congress had begun saying they should be banned.

Massie believes that we should never give our opponents - the enemies of the Constitution - an inch in this war to restore our Republic.

President Donald Trump later told reporters that his administration would be looking into whether to ban the devices "in the next short period of time". Find any cellphone video of the massacre in Las Vegas, and listen to the rat-tat-tat of a gun capable of firing hundreds of bullets per minute.

I mean, the dumbest thing you hear people say about guns - other than that we need them to prevent government tyranny, as if reducing magazine size reduces your chances in a brush-up with the U.S. Army - is that laws don't work.

Little wonder that doctors would be opposed to these weapons; they know better than anyone the devastation to human flesh and bones.

Other local gun shop owners say if bump stocks were to go off the market and become illegal, it wouldn't bother them. Paddock used them, of course, to make it easier to kill more people more quickly.

This kind of confusion could lead to more delays and ultimately allow the gun control debate to fizzle out, as it has many times in the past. In the House, Republican Rep. Carlos Curbelo is preparing his own bill to regulate bump fire stocks, a plan he said Thursday his Republican colleagues were eager to join in on. Bump Fire Systems also noted on its website: "Due to extremely high demands, we have temporarily stopped taking orders". The device for conversion of semi-automatic firearms, so-called "bump stock", is legally to be acquired. Although, the problem with regulation seems to not be so much about whether or not to regulate, but the perception of rights being taken away and the need to always resist the opposite political party.
