President Trump Expected To Announce Ban On Bump Stocks

Bump stocks are attached to semi-automatic weapons and use the gun's recoil to "bump" the trigger and allow for a faster rate of firing.

The device came to the public's attention when gunman Stephen Paddock attached it to his firearms to more quickly fire the rounds that killed 58 people at a concert in Las Vegas a year ago. Once the rule is made, those who have bump stocks will need to destroy them or surrender them to law enforcement officials within 90 days, according to the report.

Some lawmakers argued that a legislative fix - not an executive one - was necessary to ban the item.

The National Rifle Association is among the groups opposed to the ban. That attack marked the first time that bump stocks were known to have been used in a crime.

A few months after the Las Vegas attack, the Justice Department submitted a regulation proposal that would classify bump-stock-type devices as machine guns and bar the possession, sale and manufacturing of the gun accessory.

In June, Slide Fire Solutions, the Texas company that invented the bump-fire stock device and was its lead manufacturer, announced on its website that it would stop taking orders for its products and would shut down its website. Dianne Feinstein of California, have repeatedly cautioned that such a ban would likely result in lawsuits given ATF's earlier interpretation.

The ATF circulated language to ban bump stocks at Trump's direction in December 2017. Opting to change a federal rule and classifying bump stocks as illegal sidesteps any lawmaker opposition.
